First post, First time grower using LSD autos in indoor tent. Started out great, but cant seem to keep these from stretching!
Been trying to educate myself as much as possible on basics, but now need advice. Lol. I will try to include as many details as possible about my setup.
IPOW 3x3 tent with 100w led light the came as a kit. 4" exhaust fan and filter. Tower fan inside tent with a humidifier.
Using FF ocean soil in 3gal. Fabric pots. Been using the standard 3 FF nutrients 2x weekly and RO water PHed to 6-6.2. Also adding 5ml. Cal mag to every 2 gal water for watering.
Seeds popped from soil 3/30/23. I cant remeber exactly, but i think i am week 2 since signs of flower.
Stopped the cal mag in the water, now using 1/2 tsp. Of veg+bloom Shine to 2 gal resivoir of RO water daily watering.
Been on 18/6 light schedule since they are autos.
Problem i am having is i can not keep these things from stretching. Light is at 3/4 power but had to raise it to the top of the tent with zipties. Now i have had to move the light off to one side to keep the plant from growing into it. It has now reached the top of my tent. In the pot in is measuring about 5 feet tall!! I am thinking it my be due to heat stress since the are times where the temps hover at 90°. I live in AZ. so it has been very tough to keep the temps down!
What can i do to get them to stop stretching and continue to flower? Are they duds at this point?
