Short plants blah blah

Hi Happy growers,
New to ILGM and I have the same problem short plants over again. They do produce 11-14 colas but just short. What can I do to stretch them. Thanks BudWiser

Raise your light 6" see if you can get some stretch

What he said.

Raise your light to encourage her to stretch out. There’s nothing wrong with compact plants so long as they are trained well.

Good Morning @Bud_Wizer. Like @StonedCold13 said raise your lights and get your plants reaching for them. Happy Growing :blush::v:

Need really good air flow if they stay compact. Trained and thinned like said above will help

Thanks @StonedCold13 I do have a fan running and will raise the lights. Just for grins should the lights be raised up a few weeks ago?

Hard to tell from pics. Watch your node spacing. Inch to a inch and half is good.

Good advice above, genetics play a huge role but environment is also important. The closer the node spacing the more intense the light is, to increase node spacing decrease power or raise lights.

Learning DLI will help you measure these things rather then Geuss.

Hey are things looking?

Doing better. I have seen a difference. May do this after a week of growing for a seedling then give it more light. Thanks @StonedCold13
