Growth height in veg

I grew from 60 days from seed and my plants got to talk because I ran into nutrient problem. Can I top them this late in veg? anyone please

Welcome to the form! You can top anytime you want to but to see results it takes about 2 weeks if you planing on keep them in the veg cycle your fine but if you plan on flipping to flower soon then its not really worth the extra stress on the plants. It takes a plant about a week after there topped for them to not be stressed. Then another week and the lower bud sits will start showing up.

If the plant isn’t 6 feet or taller, the plants are not tall at all. I’ve had plants touch the top of my 80” tall grow tent.

I’ve had to bend them straight over as close to a 90 degree angle. I’m gonna have to do it again on the same 3 plants.

And it didn’t hurt the plants at all. :+1:

If they are still in veg, tall is relevant to the finished height. Some strains will stretch up to twice their height when flowering starts.
However, most people top plants by pinching the meristem, you can cut a plant in half if you want. They will tolerate it… clearly trainingbshould be done in the early stages though. But the reason @Myfriendis410 would like that list filled out is because we dont know if its a photo or a auto? Etc.

I think you found it great job!

Another thing to note: blue light keeps plants stout. Viparspar lights keep them nice and wide. Then expensive red light after stretch.
