    LST is in my experiences the best way to maximize yield.

    Around the time they are ready to be bottom fed is about the time to start lst
    I am only going to use the garden tape for the main stalk to get it going horizontally for a little bit while the rest gets a little bigger.
    And as the branches get bigger I'll just use the trellis for those.
    If you are not running with a trellis the method with the garden tape works great with all branches.

    Now when starting go very slow and carefully. And start them while they are nice and pliable still. Use your fingers to bend it a little on the direction you are taking it

    No need to over do it on the first few training sessions. A little will go a long way in a day or two.

    And as the plants bush out. Adjust the straps and strap down more branches.

    Try not to over crowd branches in the later sessions of lst.
    And note that when you start them on lst it does become a daily to every other day thing for a good week or two and sometimes longer.
    The reason I like to lst is to keep a nice even canopy.
    With all the branches around the same height with a little space it is much easier to provide proper light to.
    Also all of those branches that have reached canopy height are likely to think they are a dominant branch and pack on weight like a top branch.

    Here are the bunch in solo. The 3 bigger ones are now all on bottom feeding.
