Plant Stretching in Flowering

  1. Hey all,
    So I have a Greenhouse Seed's Super Silver Haze Plant and a bag seed indica that are currently 6 weeks into flower. I am growing in a closet with a 250W HPS and soil and I am limited by the amount of vertical space I have. This being said, both plants grew into the light and the top bud sites were burnt. I was able to move the light up another 5" so that I have roughly 9" between the tops of the plants and the light. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for ways to stop the vertical growth or at least contain the plants so that they don't grow back into the light and burn themselves. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  2. supercrop em,also bushmaster helps stop vertical growth
  3. So let me just start with this. You are aware your growing a Sativa dominant strain ? You know they typically have more space between inter nodes, require more light, and take roughly 3 months to finish flowering ? All I can say is tie em down a little more each day if you have the vertical space. Just don't stress the branches to much. As browntown said supercroping would also help. Looks like a pretty bad ass strain though.
  4. I am aware that the SSH is sativa dom, I thought I would be able to move the plants out of the closet for the last half of flowering and I don't think that is going to be the case now. Anyhow, I appreciate the advice.
  5. Sorry if that came off wrong. Some people just don't know thats all. That makes sense though if you'd planed to take it out last half. I love the Sativa buzz but that flowering time is brutal. One of these years I'll give em a run. Anyways, good luck with the grow man.
  6. I have similar issues but between tying down and great ventilation all is good. I have noticed that efficient air replacement and exhaust can enable you to get a 250w within inches without burning.
    Best of luck!
  7. Awesome advice on the fan, I don't have an air- cooled hood, so I think that if I am able to tie the plants down and get better air flow by the hood I might be alright. Thanks for the advice again!
