Sounds counter intuitive, but what she needs is less light. Backing the light off will encourage the plant to stretch out and will leave more room between nodes, branches, leaves,…


I have raised the light up it was at around 18 notches now it is at 23 intches

You can get pretty aggressive with bending the fan leaves around and tucking them out of the way. In a pinch I don’t hesitate to pull a fan leaf or two off my vegging plants if they are bumping into another plant or the side of the tent or blocking too much other growth I want getting light. Use leaf removal early on as a last resort though.


Topping the plant will also encourage the lower branches to grow outwards and allow a little more light in the canopy, but will slow down vertical growth quite a bit until you start flowering, assuming they are not auto’s.
