Think I flipped em too late

New grower, so the tallest plant is only 14" away from light. Did I flip em too late? Any ideas on what to do now, or just let em go?

Are they flowering yet?

Not yet, just flipped the cycle 3 days ago.

I would supercrop them if they were mine then.

@FlxerPower, no idea what your talking about. Will have to look it up.

You basically bruise a stem so there is a soft spot and bend the stem down so it is parallel with the ground. Yeah though - watch a youtube video or two on it so you can see someone actually do it.

It creates a temporary wound on the plant, but it’ll heal in a week or so and leave a big knuckle where you bent it.

Super cropping is a little scary for beginners and maybe not good once flowering. I do LST (low stress training) where you gently bend the top and tie down to the side of the pot or a stake. No need to bruise the stem but ifI you do accidentally it’s no big deal it will heal. You can continue that until the stems are too stiff to bend

U can tie some of the branches down but gently bend them basically lst

looking at the picture you can also shorten the cables on your light and gained a few inchs. And gently pull and tie a few limbs down , plants will probably double in size. Good luck

What about going back to 18-6, super crop the heck out of it, let those nodes grow vertical for a week or two and then back to 1212. That’s what I would personally do.

Alternatively, roll with the 1212 and supercrop like @FlxerPower suggested. super cropping might seem scary but it’s really not!

Thank you all for your responses, super cropping it is.

Looks like you got 2 feet of space above your light, get rid of of those light hanger cables and use a rope ratchet hanger at each corner of your light (need 4) and you’ll find you got more than a foot you can move your light up and still have some decent space above your light.

@Hellraiser, did not even look at it that way. Thanks for the advice. Now to figure out how to prune them properly. Afraid to cut off too much.
