Ok I have had plant in 12/12 for 6 days now and there is no stretch yet. I have heard that it can take a week to start then I heard the first 2 weeks is when it does stretch any help please.
How much space between the light and the plant? Won’t stretch if it’s too close.
i disagree, the 12/12 stretch happens no matter how much light they get.!
better the light the least amount of stretch, but stretch is inevitable.
referring to normal cannabis plants, i have no experience with auto’s.
Perry, be patient, the stretch is coming.!
they can start stretching 1-3 weeks into 12/12, usually starts around the 2 wk mark.!

Plants not flowering at all, zero. There’s brand new veg growth on it
Light leak or just needs more time.

Plants take 2 to 3 weeks till they start to flower…
Time is your enemy …
9 to 16 weeks to go…
@12’ your stretch will be minimal if you are using QB’s. Plant will continue to grow though. Had a gold leaf under my QB304’s. Think the buds on top were maybe 4’ tall.
I would back your lights off some. Also wondering when they sprouted?
They came up Valentine’s Day I just have 4 white widows in a smaller tent waiting to get in the bigger tent. The plant is 14” tall
@dbrn32 what should I move the lights up to?
Is it at full power?
Yes I had it turned down to 75% when it was in veg
Take it to like 20" or so above canopy, then lower to 16" a couple weeks after you see pistils.
Do I feed her anything I haven’t been
I would follow directions from manufacturer on whatever you’re using until you see a reason to do otherwise. From pics you posted, I don’t see any pressing nutrient issues at this time.
Great thanks I’ll move the lights up and patience now that is something I need
As a general rule I agree with you although I’ve had good luck attenuating it in some Indica-dominant strains. Being close to the light makes zero difference. In fact I’m dealing with too much stretch but I’m running some sativa-dominant strains which messed me up.
Stretch can run a month or so too with some strains.
