predicting plant height

  1. how do you predict how tall your plant will be? i found a plant and i wanna know if it will grow tall or be short.

    it is about 7 inches.

  2. well i know sativas usaly grow crazy if yoou dont manage em i had a couple of em that were 6 ft but you can keep them under control no prob
  3. The only way to "predict" is to know the genetics, and even that can vary (ever see two short people have a tall kid?) Generally sativas grow taller and indicas shorter. Height is a controllable variable, though. First, you can use training, scrogging, trimming, etc. Second, you can flower earlier or later. Third, for an indoor grow you can use a smaller or larger pot (although I don't recommend restricting roots as a means of controlling height). Your lighting also plays a role (MH, for example, tends to veg out closer nodes).
