Day 1: The Mars LEDs run warm with the tent closed, but a 4" inline fan keeps the grow around 85 degrees. It's also been raining outside and raising humidity to high 50s. She's been drinking about a half gallon of water a day.

Day 3: Measured at 2' x 2' today. I don't see anywhere else for her to go but upwards to space. I've enrolled her for the official NASA training program.

Day 7: The flowering stretch is real. She grew 3 inches this week. Been struggling to get her to grow upwards, so 12" is a major milestone for me.

In the last couple days of veg, I kept lights on for 24 hours hoping it would delay flowering hormones. 16- 18" final height would make for a respectably sized plant.

10W pump for a 5 gallon is bordering excessive, but the O2 bubbles are violent and many. I've seen root mass pics post-harvest and some plants have occupied the entire 5 gallon. My girl's looking like one of those.

I think it would be better to try to keep the size around 2x3 to make sure you get enough light intensity to all the buds. The bud density will suffer if there isn't enough light. You would probably have to add a second light to supplement your 300 watt to get enough light to do a 2x4.

Do you guys know any tricks to get my plant to grow taller? Goal is to increase space in between nodes. I've tried raising the LEDs to 30 inches for a few days. Also tried leaving it in complete darkness for 24 hours.

Hi @NASATrainer! What makes plants stretch: 1/ dark cycles, you can increase your night duration up to 14 hours with 10 hours of light, 2/ nitrogen, you could add some more Nitrogen during the stretch phase, but be careful not to over-do, a plant stunted with Nitrogen during flowering will result in weird buds or 'the claw'. 3/ plant-to-lamp distance, increasing this value should result in vertical growth, as the plant will look for more light. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

can always add some CFL lights - may help - lowering your lamp should help as well - the closer the LEDs are - the more intense the light is - up to a point
