I'm 15 days from 1st harvest. I want to plan grow 3 a little better and would like some feedback. 

 

I'm thinking about starting 8 seeds since I'm getting around 25% failure in germination. If they all sprout I have the luxury of picking the best to move on. If not I get at least 5 going hopefully. Am I wasting seeds?

I really want to see Richbud's results from LST. I'm really unsure where the wire is connected. There are no spaces I can see to tie down on. Maybe topping and light training through the SOG net is the best way?
