Great advice from everyone. personally I think your stats all look decently good, not worrisome. However the two things i thought about involved lighting. In your 1st 3 photos it looks like the front right corner is a little less lit as well as lower down on the plant. I love cfls in their ability to keep heat low and energy. However if you could add either 1 or 2 additional bulbs to reach lower and that 1 corner that may help. If not, i saw you have some pretty big fan leaves blocking that penetration downwards, i saw at least 4 certain leaves i would definitely remove. Id also go in and remove any very low branches that wont produce only drain from your bigger fatter buds.
Great job keeping her looking healthy, the next couple weeks should be very exciting to watch. Happy flowering and keep trying new things. :v:

@pessak I highly recommend you wait another 2 weeks for harvest to be sure the Clear trichome count is reduced as low as possible for a better high effect! I personally aim for 75%+ Cloudy with as little clear trichomes as possible.. Be sure to Flush your plant in the last week with pure water to breakdown and remove excess nutrient buildups in the plant for a cleaner smoke. Then turn your lights off for the final 48 hours to stop the photosynthesis process this makes the smoke much smoother as well as boosts resinous production. In terms of plant height If you would like a taller plant for your next grow I highly recommend Lollipopping the lower leaves and branches to better promote new growth and stretching at the Apical Node(top bud). I hope this helps you with your questions pessak! Feel free to ask anything else you may need. Best of luck friend!:sunglasses:

Move your light up a bit n see if she stretches if not then your too late bud but if ur plants are to small then just raise the light every week or so and u should have plants that stretch and wen ur happy with the height there at then just move ur light down to about 2 or 3ft from ur plant and it will bush then but as a said bud just raise and lower ur light till ur satisfied bud then wen uv got it perfect just start from seed with the light in the same position a gd mate of mine tryhard told me to do this and it worked wonders

I think that height of the plant is NOT related to flower production at all.
What makes the plant LONG or stretch:
hot temperatures, humid air, low light intensity.
What makes the plant SHORT and compact:
cold, dry air, high light intensity (and especially 24 hours of light).

What i really suggest you is to save some money and buy a better light when you can. With the same electric bill, you will have way more light (=more buds).
If you are a handy guy with some electric knowledge and want to save some money, build your own led cob light. Otherwise buy a grow led light already made. HPS lamps will be too hot for your space.

I would recommend that you raise your lights away from your plant this way you can prevent heat stress from happening I can see on some of your leaves in the pictures that your plant is suffering from minor heat stress . Another thing I would suggest doing is defoliating a little this way you can encourage new bud sites to come as well as strengthen the current tops you already have in order to produce yourself a bigger and better yield . Last but not least because your at the beginning stages of flowering I would also boost the PK this will also help facilitate the encouragement of new bud sites as well as strengthen your current ones . I hope this information helps you - Happy growing!

No Suggestions so frar. You have choosen a breeder with stable genetics, the girls got Light, food space and i think love... that is an underestaminated ingredient for succesfull growing. go on that track girls lookin good

Hi @pessak! You might consider controlling your plant's height by pinching and bending the side stems down. Also I'd recommend to follow this feeding schedule:, it's a BioBizz custom schedule dedicated to autos, it has been tested and approved by me & other growers around here. Keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:
SommerVirelli answered grow question 4 years ago
There’s not much you can do. Most auto strains are bred with genetics that keep them nice and short. Sometimes you’ll get one that has a tall pheno if you’re lucky.

Hi , @spinnergrow n @bulb have answered but I would like to add something if I may ... it be worth checking out the seed site for description of estimated height and also other ppls diaries on the same strain n see their final heights , just to make sure your on right track . Peace n happy growing bud :dove_of_peace::dove_of_peace:

Hello ! So your temperatures are goods ( not too high) and at that satge your humidity should be around 60% but yours is ok as you grow autos you will soon see the flowering process. Your light is at the good distance as it is a Fl 250 you can put it as close as 10 cm if you want but I recommend you to stay at 20cm like your already doing. 10L pot is an average for an auto you can go with bigger pot but I can see that your space is limited so I guess you used the proper pot size to your space. You don't teally need to use cal mag in soil when you'r using tap water as tap water provide enough cal mag for the whole grow.I hope it will help you :grin::raised_hands:

Hey there, here's some stuff you can do to promote more growth. First take your temperature down and humidity up. If you can you can raise your lights a bit so the plant stretches more. If you want bigger plants, you need bigger pots, but transplanting at this stage is probably a bad idea ! do it next time, for bigger growth. You can also increase the light schedule, but make sure you add cal mag. once you're in flower add a booster with mag sulfur, to get bigger flowers. It's pretty normal the plants are short right now, hopefully they will get huge with the flower stretch. good luck ! :rocket:
