how tall to go?
    #313717 - 11/10/09 03:37 PM (7 years, 29 days ago)

A theoretical question.  Lets say a person was going to use a grow cab with a 20"x24" area, with the highest point the light could go would be about 4ft 6".  How tall would you let the plants get before flowering?

I normally say 10 to 12 inches, but this isn't true for all breeds tho.

Some strains increase 3 to 4 times there size in the flowering stage.

if you have that small of a grow area i wouldn't start flowering anything that is bigger then 5 inches.

it would really depend on the type of light you're using. if it's an CFL, you'll be able to let the tops get quite a bit closer with now worry of burning. it it's an HPS or MH then you will want to leave 6" or maybe more if it's over 400w.

I have a similar size cab and use a 400w hps. i generally trigger once they hit about 12". a good rule of thumb is to assume they will at least double in height. you might have to give it a try and see what happens. each strain is different. i find they stop growing(height) after 4 weeks of flowering.
