Planning my first grow and concerned about plant height.
    #648962 - 12/01/12 11:41 PM (4 years, 1 day ago)

I'm planning on doing a stealth grow in a dresser and I'm concerned about the plant height when budding. I want to keep the plants under 3-4 feet. Does any body have tips on how to keep my plants that short. I've been to seed banks online and they say that all the plants grow like 5ft and up. I'd prefer to grow a indica strain.

There are plenty of methods to train a plant from tying it down to cutting it. I suggest you purchase a book on cultivation and read it through. You'll have plenty of time to learn with your grow.

Thanks for the tip do you know which book is the best to read or should I just kind of pick one that sounds the best for me.

for an idea of reference, I put a clone outdoor next to my house in April last year. every time I saw it getting too tall, I popped the tops off. I did this up through September until it started to bud. it finished up under 3 foot tall with a 5 month veg haha.

you could always 12/12 from seed or try an auto too.

Like cut the tops just like you do when your cutting down trees to get it to the height you want. ( trim it like the lawn )

Thanks... I understand every thing now. Top it and train it like a bonsai tree to keep it short and fat. I read the entire article and I'm super stoked. I'll have to try my hand at FIM but I'll probably just top and LST until I get some clones.

its scary doing most plant training at first because its your baby and you don't wanna hurt it. then you inevitably fuck up one day down the road and learn just how sturdy cannabis really is. I broke the main stem of one of my girls and it grew a huge knuckle at the break, stronger than ever. that's when I learned how rough I could be if I had to haha.

also, pimpppppp BMO avatar dude!

Of course it's happening inside your head.
Why should that mean it isn't real?

Thanks for the avatar thing dude. I'm peeEEEing.  :dawerp:


When you broke the stem it grew back the same as if you did HST or FIM to it. With FIM you just break it so it horizontal or farther over. I guess your accident was just really intense smack on the ass for your baby because it wouldn't behave. :boot: LOL

the height of a plant is dictated by several things, and there are a couple of simple things you can do to decrease height, but be advised it has to grow somewhere so instead of tall you can make it fat, reasonably shallow pots but very wide, to stop the rootbase growing downwards and causing stretch and allow the roots to grow sideways, allowing the plant to stretch out instead of up, adjusting your lights is another way, the shorter the time you can have your lights on without inducing flowering dictates both how long and how large your plant will be able to grow in its life cycle, for example a regiment of 24 hour light will be fine with most plants during vegetation periods but giving it access to this much light allows it to grow larger over a slower amount of time, increasing quality and yield, but there needs to be a balance between time spent and yield gained (individual to plant genetics mostly) to make the most efficient use of your space and time, there are hormones like gibbarellic acid which cause stem and leaf growth which can be restricted with chemicals like u-turn which is a growth regulator, but a lot of people dont like these and find them hard to work with, your medium is also important as some mediums are easier to grow through causing the plant to grow bushy (coconutfibre, pearlite etc) but require specific knowledge on how to use them effectively, what it comes down to is a combination of forrum jumping,ebaying,wikipedia searching and experimenting, all strains are different and will react in different ways to the same conditions, try finding a purple indica, purple stem and leaf (in genetics not because of shock) means the plant has a deficiency in chlorophyll (green), and an abbundance of xanophyll (purple), normally xanophyll accounts for anywhere from 1 to 30 percent of the chlorophyll/xanophyll mixture used by the plant, xanophyll itself is nowhere near as effective in function as chlorophyll but is much hardier to cold temperatures, therefore plants geneticly bred purple should be somewhat smaller than the green counterpart, this is not always the case but is a good rule of thumb, you could always go for a lowryder species, just a couple of ideas ill have a look at a few books for you if you would like and repost
