plant leaning

  1. Plant is growing slanted its about 2 inches tall atm. Should I put a stick next to it to straighten it up?
  2. Yeah use a tooth pick or chop stick. It may stretch so much it can't support its own weight. If that happens you can add more soil around it or coco or tron, whatever, it will support the stem. It needs more light to prevent stretching and a fan blowing on it to help build sturdy stems.
  3. it should be getting enough light, thanks for the response gunna go find a tooth pick now.

    Pics of setup and plant.

  4. Yep, gotta have that fan blowing on it to strengthen stem...another way to straighten it quickly it to move the plant away from direct light and it will bend itself back into the light, thus straightening up the less than a half hour it will be straight again.
  5. A toothpick is just putting a bandaid on the problem. Your plant isnt getting enough light. Thats the only reason they stretch like that.

    You can try putting the light directly over the plant. That will keep it from bending to the side. If it is still stretching you either need more light or you need to move the light closer to the plants.

    A fan will help strengthen the stalks, but not enough to make up for inadequate lighting.
