Advice on Leveling Out The Canopy?

Hi everyone! I need your advice. I have 2 plants in my tent right now, same strain (Runtz), sprouted exactly the same time, but as you can see, the plant on the left is growing exponentially taller than the plant on the right. I’m just about to defoliate because I’m flipping to flower next week, but was wondering if you could give me some advice as to how to better even the canopy in this instance? LST? A second sCrog net?

I really appreciate your help!

Super cropping, booster for the second, and another net. :call_me_hand:t3:


Supercropping can get you a lot…it is not too late to top a few of the taller ones.

How much room/ceiling height do you have left to move your lights up? A rule of thumb is to flip by the time your at your 1/2 way point.

You do need to watch overall height…if that is ok you can always raise the shorter plant to be even with the rest. I have a runt in my current grow…I just raised her up higher. The canopy looks like they are all the same height.


Thank you all so much!!! This is only my second grow, so I truly appreciate all of your suggestions. :pray::pray:

That is a BRILLIANT idea to raise the second plant as well. I’ll definitely do that today, and get a second trelis net. I’ll be defoliating/lollipopping today too so that they’ll have time to recover before flipping to flower on Monday.

I know I have a LOT to learn, but at least the plants look vibrant and healthy!

Again, I so appreciate you all!
