Just wondering if they start to stretch out at around a certain number of weeks. Mine are just staying really small, but they're only 3-4 weeks old.

Plants that are switched to 12/12 stretch. I'm wondering if autos do this without going to 12/12.

thats pretty much what i said i just didnt long wind it out lol
but thanks for the research


but stretch is also from having plant to far away from the light.

i think the "stretch" from the first week or 2 of flower is more of a growth spurt.

I can tell you this, my autos are about 3 weeks into flowering and they're stretching like crazy,

and it's not because the light is too far away )400 HPS at about 8-9 inches away) I don't dare

put the lights any closer.

Why are you bringing up a thread that's like almost 4 years old? These users are probably long gone..

Yes they go through the stretch just like photoperiod sensitive plants do. It starts at around week 3 or 4 and lasts until about week 6. 

 

I don't know why people are arguing about semantics, it was quite clear what you were asking

 

Edit.....

Dam, old thread

I know the thread is old Bros, but "I" found it looking for answers to a current question,

and that means others will find it with more info than it had before (as supplied by myself and

GoldGrower). That makes it a viable source of information to anyone searching this subject.

 

If we all waited for only current answers from us potheads, we'd be likely waiting until the

problems we are researching have already killed our plants :)

 

Thanks guys
