Your stem is too flimsy yet to be attempting LST..it's still a seedling. When you are ready to do it,
You've got to tie the string around the stem , not just flopped over a leaf

This here should help you more
First of all, i'm getting this out of the way. It matters not if the plant was from seed, or is a clone.

This is more of a "feel" than an exact science.

I'm tired of useless time frames that simply don’t apply to everybody. I’ve seen some people take months to do the same thing others take weeks to do. Literally.

So we will do this instead; we will use characteristics.

You need the plant to have developed a decent root structure (we don’t want to be pulling the sucker out the soil now do we?).

Now, it’s obviously hard to know what the root structure looks like (as we cant see it), but we can take an educated guess.

You want there to be a certain amount of plant to actually be there to tie down. I used to think that "stretch" was the end of the world, but now I think otherwise. The amount of stem stretch has nothing to do with the future denseness of the bud.

In this picture here, we see a plant that’s definitely NOT ready; better give it some more time.
Image
So I showed you a bad candidate, how about a good one.

A nice lanky plant like the one pictured here is a good place to start. Notice the nice amount of formed branches, and also the the generous room allotted for the ties. You know at this size, she’s got some healthy roots already, and will make you fight to pull her out.

Looks like this girl is ready to begin her training.
Image
Notice the healthy amount of plant left above the tie.

Start out slow. As I said before, you will acquire a feel for this. Don’t push (bend) her too far all at once; baby steps .

Make sure the tie is tight enough that it doesn’t slip, but not too tight that it cuts into her.

This pic was taken seconds after I applied the tie there. Easy does it, no need to rush. This hobby of ours takes patience, get used to it.
Image
Alright, so you have the first tie *tied* down. very nice. see how she adjusted herself to her new position in just a day? depending on the strain and the health, you will notice changes in hours even.

At this time you should think about a counter tie at her *crown* (trunk)

Depending on the size of your lil one, you can decide to skip this step if you want. The tie will be temporary, as she will strengthen herself to her new shape down the road. But for now, you don’t want to be pulling her out of the dirt with your first tie

a day or two later with a counter tie. should look something like this
Image
This is an important time. you will be laying out her future shape. molding her to your liking, for both yours and her benefit.

I find that tying her AROUND the pot works well for me. Fan out her branches so that all of her is getting somewhat equal coverage of light. As she grows, she will continue to grow out in this shape.

I also find that leaving a gap in the *circle* to allow a place to water/feed is required. The larger she gets, the tougher it is for you to get in there and feed her!

All about maintenance! stay on top of it. Have a branch that’s large enough to tie down? then DO so! your in control here, remember.

follow?
Image

Notice the added growth and added black wire to train with. Just keep up on the feedings and stay on top of the temps and air flow

Look at how fast these things are growing. They went from having (1)3 leaf set on one side to having the first 5 leaf set starting to sprout out. WOW!!! I mean, maybe I'm easily amused but that to me is fast. What's it been 2 or 3 days maybe?? Here is a few pics for everyone to compare to the last pics. Look how close the nodes are.....these are gonna be some good buddy plants for sure. LOOK REALLY CLOSE AT THE PLANT IN PICTURE LABELED hydro2 006.jpg AND LOOK AT THE TWO 3 LEAF SETS...THERE IS ONE ON EACH SIDE...ON ONE SIDE THE LEAVES ARE LONG,DARK AND SKINNY....ON THE OTHER SIDE THEY ARE SHORT, LIGHT, AND FAT...50%SATIVA/50%INDICA. Anybody who has any questions involving what strains I'm growing just ask. I just found out myself last night. See, I got these seeds from a friend who orders them quite frequently so....he gave me a few different kinds of seeds and at the time didn't know which was which. Now being able to see the plants growing he was able to recall the strains. If curious, I'm only a keystroke away....lol
