Dears,my plant is growing in very compact way. Leafs are very close to each other.It is 5th week already, i want to move it to flowering stage, but it is too short.I served 100w 3500k LEDs for flowering.Can i turn light to 12/12 with 180w and attach 100w at 3rd week of flowering?

Your plant is doing fine , you will see that during the flower stage your plant will gain a little height with a lot of mass. As for your light situation i would likely go and get more lights because in flower more light exposure = more and bigger flowers . You can make due with what you have now but from what you describe its not enough . You will run into a few problems if you dont have enough light for flowering one of the problems is that the development of the bud sites and the buds themselves will be slower , the buds wont be as tight they will be more airy and you may not get as much of a yield . That's not to say you can't still do it with what you have now cause you can it will just affect your yield big time . If your on a budget or not that interested in spending big $$$$ there is cheap alternatives to get the job , the cheapest way would be to get a digital ballast from amazon or w.e they sell kits with the lights for like 50 $ or you can get T5 super output lamps to combine with what you already have for like 30$ a piece there is lots of option's to choose from but its all in what you wanna do with it ! I hope this information has helped on your journey to becoming a grow master ! <3 -Happy Growing!

Nothing wrong with a short plant with tight internode, less wasted space. Remember a 5 node 30 cm (1ft) tall plant is not better than a 10 cm (4 inches) with the same 5 nodes and actually the shorter plant has a better structure. As for flowering lights the more watts the better potential yield and mixing different color temperatures is helpful. What I do not recommend is to lower the power from 180 watts in veg to 100 watts in flower; I mean you can do it but it will decrease the yield you could get since flowering needs more light than veg, not the other watt around. Good luck
