GROW TIP Low Stress Training LST


Low Stress Training (LST) is essentially any technique for training your marijuana plants that does not cause them stress in the way that something like topping or pruning could. Like most techniques for improving yields, LST’s main goal is providing as much light exposure to the plants as possible.

The inverse square law states that the light’s intensity radiating from its point source is inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the light. For marijuana cultivators, all this means is that the superior light is at the apex of the marijuana plants (if the lights are situated above). Lower branches get a far lower quality of light, which can severely diminish their potential.

LST techniques typically involve pulling the plant in a downward direction so that it grows more laterally and exposed the lower branches to more light (and light intensity). Bud formation will increase on these branches, resulting in a higher yield for each plant and each watt of light. In the end, you get more bud for less bucks.
