You do have the right idea, and this is fine theoretically, however I would caution you against leaning the whole plant over in one direction in this manner. I've seen someone do it before and it introduced a range of problems in terms of stability. Probably better to let that thing grow up a little bit more until it starts to branch out a bit and then tie the branches down in a somewhat symmetrical manner.

Thanks for the reply, so is there point in maybe undoing this elastic band? It’s been there for like an hour so it’s in that position now, will that effect it?

Nah, it'll snap right back up within a day. Takes much much longer to become permanent

Thank you for the advice

For sure. If you want some really good quality video training, I cannot recommend enough that you check out Mr Canucks grow on YouTube, I learned a lot from that guy. He's got some very detailed explanations of how he does his LST.

Did you give the stem a twist in both directions to soften the stem internal structure? That's what I do before bending the stem. I've bent the plants like you did to train it for horizontal growth to fill a low scrog net. I now think [LST clips](https://www.google.com/search?q=lst+clips&sxsrf=ALiCzsbfFQwF69SXO2Jk7l2LVBjBxZwUsQ:1654358746408&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiVnqTLlpT4AhVjUjABHWkCA3gQ_AUoAnoECAEQBA&biw=1920&bih=937&dpr=1) are the way to go.

No I didn’t but it bent pretty easily, thanks for those clips as a suggestion I’ll try them out!
