LST and height

  1. First time grower here..

    I am planning for a small 36" tall grow box for indoor use. I have 3 CFL at the top and if I employ LST on the plant, will there be enough space for good growth? Thanks.
     
  2. Yes! Its all about timing, bud. U just have to start flowering when they are no taller than 18" because they will stretch, almost double in size.but it can be done, trust me. I have first hand experience ;)
     
  3. Agree with beerbrewer, but I'd decrease to 12-14" to switch to bloom.
    I dont have headroom problems - usually veg to 16-18" and end up with around a 42-48" plant in bloom. If I let them go to 20" before switching I run out of headroom & have to bend them over to keep the tops out of the light.
    I've seen some beautiful SCROG journals on here, should work perfectly for a micro grow.
     
  4. Doesn't matter if there is enough space for good growth, sounds like you aren't giving enough light to give you good growth in the first place...
