  1. ok ok, so my plant in my jrounal has started to flower, only problem is, its outgrowing its box, its a little more than a foot tall right now and just started to flower, has about a foot of room to grow before it hits the top, does anyone know anything i can do so stunt if not shorten its overall height? i know i cant fim or top it because its flowering i dont need any stress on her, and i dont know what to do, any help would be great! pics soon!
  2. well see the main stem is extremley thick and i would rather not risk going from bend to break since this is my baby and all. but i will try to, ive already started adding weights to the lower branches. so ive gotten a little head start, im getting a small 70W HPS to add to the CFL's i currently have so it will boost me to about 150W going through her, also.
  3. I understand your hesitation, FWIW my first grow I had the same problem and gently tied her down about five days into flower. I described it in more detail in another thread. Go slow, you can't bend her all at once, just a little bit at a time.
  4. I use small weights <30grams to bend the tops of the plants down a bit.
    If you carefully place these weights and check on your plant everyday to maybe make a small adjustment to the position of the weights...its all good.
  5. thanks for all the helkp homies! pics up tommorrow.
