Day 22 I started lst, pulled the tops over to one side. I did forget to anchor the bottom luckily nothing bad happened! Later that night I corrected this and re tied down this time with anchors.
Day 23 I re-tied them down again and give them 200ml of feed each.
Day 24 pistols started to show, gave light spray to foliage.
Day 25 humidifier came ultrasonic cool mist. It comes on every 3 minutes for one minute keeps humidity at around 40% also fed the plant until runoff for the first time.
Day 26 re-tied all plants down with four ties each in different direction from when I first started.
Day 27 light has been sitting about 56cm from top of plants. Not sure if I should bring it closer.
Day 28 watered 400ml each ph 6.0 plant height approx 6" but they have had lst so I'd say without that they'd be about 7-8" tall one plant is only about 5" not sure if its been stunted or not.

Grow Questions
Removed week 4 started grow question 3 years ago
can anyone help me with the correct light distance?
i do realise that i am growing a dwarf strain but from the start i haven't been sure on the correct light distance.
i want it to stretch a bit more so am i right in thinking i should move the light further away?
thanks.

HI, you got to test it, until you know the distanesin a new setup, if the nodes close together, your light is to near... if the nodes are to far you are to high, if the nodes have the right distance you are right....... what is the right distance? on smallplants they should be around 1.5 cm....its difficult to describe, if a plant nods are very close the light is to near. You should always see the branches and before stretching in flower nodes most time around 1,5-3 cm distance....

You lifted the leaves of the left plant, the nodes are perfect ( in relation to the Stage of the plant, i would say its the right distance,
