Hi Everyone,

Figured I would see if anyone wants to follow along as I train my Fastbuds Fastberry and Smoothie.

I have a journal but figured I would keep this strictly as a timelapse and step by step of sorts on the training process with daily pics as best I can.

Quick Details:
- 20" x 36" x 63" tent
- 3gal Fabric Pots
- Coco/perlite mix
- GH Flora Nutes & CaliMagic
- 1 x HLG135 QB288 Rspec

These ladies are almost 2 weeks old and last night I made the first anchor and bend on them. Starting early and taking things slow is my thought process here as I have broken some stems in the past.

I am also considering topping these ladies but I am not sure it is going to be that beneficial considering the amount of LST I will be doing. Going to have to make that decision in a couple days.

Anyhow here is the pics from last night when I put her to sleep after putting an anchor on them and making that first slight bend.

Feel free to chime in with any tips. Always happy to hear others opinions and take advice!

Cheers!

Quick update...

Just tightened those strings a little and pulled em over a bit more.

Again taking it slow, but my goal is to pin these girls down and keep em low.

I know both of these should be pretty quick to start flowering and I am hoping to have a good spread before they start stretching.

These girls will be 2 weeks old tomorrow and they are growing pretty well despite my intervention.
