Need Advice. Plants too tall.
    #767541 - 01/27/15 08:11 PM (1 year, 9 months ago)

Hey guys-

I thought I could do it! I thought I could accommodate my plant's growth in flowering but it's getting too tall for the space. I got 2 Full Moon Sativas that are 25 days into flowering. This is a long flowering strain, 60-90 days. The ladies are about 5ft. One of them has slowed to a nice height while the other is pushing on like there is no tomorrow. Its been 1/3 of their full flowering time so I thought they would slow and stop vertically growing. Nope. I only have about 8" left above my light. So my question is, what do I do? I have never lst'ed or super cropped.

The way I see it is:

1. , I LST it by tying it down slightly.
2. I super crop it at the level of the other plant and bring my light down. What effect will this have?
3. I can tie it to the side which will essentially let it grow past my light. Probably a bad idea.
4. I can risk another couple days and see what happens but this thing has been growing an inch a day. Not sure I will win this one.

Pictures below. The shorter plant in the foreground is obviously the one that slowed. In general this plant has been slower to flower, slower to grow. The taller one in the back is extremely aggressive and the light is getting to it, leaves are starting to yellow at the top. But she is still happy overall.
I would love to preserve her natural cola but understand if I have to sacrifice.

Any and all advice will be extremely appreciated.


Plants about a week ago or so ago.


Plants today with the tall one reaching for the 600W HPS!! Don't do it!


Space above the light. 8"

I've had plants grow above my lights when I was growing in soil.
Good to see you figured it out.

I did the same thing for some of my plants.  Probably wont supercrop during flower again since it takes some time to recover. 

Let us know how it turns out.
