Help with leaning plants

Any remedies or just tie them to the ceiling?
Man I just freed up some space in the 5x5 and 2 seem to be unable to support the massive budd weight. Week 5 of flower.

Silica can help strengthen plant structure. It won’t eliminate the problem, but it can help. Many people use bamboo stakes to tie the plant erect.

Buy some 3 ft tall skewers or dowels to tie them to, and/or get plant yoyos to hold the buds up. Either will work.

I second the silica recommendation - I got a pair of clones as a gift that were so scrawny they could barely hold up their leaves. Now both of them have thick stems that require no additional support.

I also have a supply of 1/4" dowels 3’ long that give my girls support when they are top heavy I also use pipe cleaners to support.

If you want to be lazy about it grow them into a net, prior to this i would tie them up. If your doing a good job they will fall over no matter what with big heavy bud. I like lazy so i built a frame and have 2 levels of net i tie in. They grow through net, now they cant fall.
