Can I keep them short enough through flower so that they don't out grow my room?

A customer has a question or concerns and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

“I have two Blue Dream seedlings started from seeds. They are about 2” tall right now. I’m using a 600w LED. My grow room is 63 inches tall by 36 inches square. Distance from floor to light is is 53 inches. My question is can I keep them short enough through flower so that they don’t out grow my room? If not, should I toss them and start two Northern Lights that I purchased? They are planted in soil."

Thanks @ILGM.Support.Becky ,

If you’re enough confident in your grow skills and a little handy, here’s some tutorial technics that will help you manage and keep them relativly short :

Hoping that’s going to help you, dear customer, do not hesitate to join the forum and ask further questions…,

You’re welcome @Donp :innocent:

Sounds like we have the same tent. I use mine just to flower in with a scrog net, plenty of super cropping I keep my plants about 2 ft. Tall from top of pot. I also have a 600w led and 200w hps in there. The combo is awesome imo but you need a big fan.

Side note :memo: your ph is 6.1 , what are you growing in @Donp ?

Right now I’ using Foxfarm seed starter soil. Plants are in 1 quart pots. I will transfer to 3 gallon fabric pots using Roots Original potting soil.

Thank you for the info.

I’d say the scrog technique is probably the best option but I will say this technique is best used with one plant per screen to get most out of technique super cropping and fimming are also good options as well

I agree with @Countryboyjvd1971 I’ve been running multiple plants and it’s a massive headache. In a small tent. 2 plant max in this tent. 1 being the best way imo .

This is my third grow. The first two were Blue Mystic. Both times I was happy with the results. Since this is my first with Blue Dream I will take all the great information that I have received and work at keeping the two plants from getting too tall.

This is a great forum.
Thanks to all​:+1::+1:

I would say regardless of any methods you use, don’t let them get much taller than 20 inches or so before you flip them. You could maybe go a little higher with a scrog if you tuck properly. But they’re definitely going to stretch quite a bit. Things like your pots, light, and hangers will take up a little of the overall room available too which should leave you with around 4 feet of room for plant height. Not hard at all for sativa leaning strains to take that up.

Thank you, I was thinking of flipping them around 15". Is that ok? Or is it too soon.


#12

That would be ok. You’ll probably want to use some sort of training or topping method to help get a decent yeild.


#13

Sounds good. I will do some topping and LST.
Thank you.
