Main Stem. Some people do the others too to get a more even canopy but it's dangerous risking snapping the small branches so don't bother with it imho.

Main stem is plenty. :yep:

You should bend the side branches and tie them down to I did the same just bent the main stem over and was wondering why I didn’t look like others until @blackpoolbouncer said about tieing side branches down, I find tieing the side branches easier as there thinner and more flexible you should give it a go highway I’m sure they won’t snap mate

@highway_017 lst has more potential than you are revealing. Don't be afraid of the side branches. This is where the big gains come from and as stated, they are very hard to snap. Far less prone to snapping than the main stem.

 

Go on......you know you want to

E2a. There's a step by step pictorial of how a plant should look like at different stages in my diary that's pinned in the dinafem section. May help visualise the process for anyone interested 

 

Have a good un

Do you see in the pic you posted that how you employed "lst" to the main stem didn't actually achieve anything other than making the main stem grow slightly wonky? 

 

We see that a lot. It doesn't actually serve to divert growth auxins. When you topped the plant the plant diverted those auxins which is why the side branches shoot up because they assume apical dominance because they are no the leading shoots. 

This is why when we lst the idea is that all potential growing tips are of equal height. The plant then gives them a relatively equal amount of extra oomph. 

 

It changes the morphology of the plant by using it's own biological mechanisms.
