stringy initial growth
    #230967 - 05/23/09 06:25 PM (7 years, 6 months ago)

my first growth was perfect from germ to harv. but these last few times ive germ'd, the plants initially grow very tall and skinny, 5-8 inches high with the initial growing spikes only, usually destine to fall down. this happens within 2-4 days after placing the germ'd seeds in my soil. also they sometimes are very light green. why are they so lanky to start?

i want them to grow more out like an indica and less tall~sativa

that is generally caused by not enough light. Need more lumens, and the sag can be fixed with a simple cheap fan, blowing on them enough to move the leaves and rock the stem a little. Youd be suprised how much stronger that can make them. But pics would be helpful in troubleshooting.

first grow; the 6 female plants from seedling to harv were always within touching range of the two 4' cw-fluorescence lights, nice fan, and it turned out PERFECT.
these seedlings were atleast 1' under the same cfl's for 3 days while they popped out and got tall and stringy so fast.

thanks man

It is a light issue. Plants that young will stand up otherwise. I am assuming they aren't drowning of course.

Your first time they were within touching distance of your fluoros and they came out well.  This time around you have them a foot away from your CFLs?  Thats too far away.  Put those CFL's 3" away from them, and get a fan to get them swaying in the breeze.

My friend has a few plants that he left in his window sill for a while. Now they are 6-7 inches tall and only have 2 actual serrated leaves, They're a month old or so, but it seems like an easy fix with a fan

Tell your friend to get a light, or put the plants outside. Jesus Christ..........
