Hello. I germinated the seeds in wet paper towels and then put the sprouts into general hydroponic root cups. The problem I have is the seedlings are all leg growing very tall. I researched and found they might need more light so I moved them into the grow tent and started the 18/6 light cycle. They are now getting fuller leaves but to the point they are falling over. I staked and tied them up and they seem to be fine but are they too far gone to grow out or will the stocks fill out and strengthen up? They are almost 3 weeks old now since putting in the riot cups
Pics would help a lot
You can always backfill them with more dirt and bury most the stalk. The stalk with grow roots once buried too.
They need to get transplanted sooner. They should do better now.
When a seedling stretches like that they are in search for more light, if you increase the light they will stop for the most part. There are going to be some plants that just grow that way though, you can have 5 of the same plants growing next to each other and one might decide to stretch in that case it would be genetics
There stretching out to get to the light . The light needs to be closer to the plants or they will continue to grow taller during Germinate stage . That just my opinion from my experience . I have had a couple of thin & skinny plants in the past .
Just a reminder ILGM has some good info in there Grow Guide section & free down load of Grow Bible .
That is definitely true as well. I have 9 seedlings right now and 4 of them have stretched double the height of the other 5. Some just wanna climb into your light.
Sorry growmie, pics didn’t load. Wait til they load 100% before editing or posting them.
This is one week from the original post I made.
They are looking much better! Filling out nicely and holding up well! Looks like you may have got a little groove going. Keep it up!
@Borderryan22 @MeEasy Thought I would post an update. These are 31 days old today. Have been doing LST for a week now. These are feminized, think I will let them go 2 more weeks before flipping to 12/12. Will probably put the net up next week too. Have a little Nute bun but overall seem to be strong. Using GH 4 step system just short of their doses. PPM in tank is ranging 775-850 with Ph ranging 5-6 through the week. What do you guys think? I pinched the top off one of them last night and will top one tonight too.
Top growth looks good. Getting nice and bushy!
