Green420room started grow question 3 years ago
This is my first grow and I was expecting my plants to growing taller than this by now. It seems that they are growing slow. But I may be mistaken. Please let me know what your thoughts are on how my plants are doings, and if they should be taller than they currently are.

Don’t fret buddy, I’ve grown crop kings white widow too and had the exact same thought ; that it was so slow growing for having an advertised flowering time of 8-9 weeks. I grew four different white widows a couple times from crop king each plant flowering for over 12 weeks which I didn’t like at all. It totally put me off of crop king seeds. It was 4 extra weeks of flowering I can understand one or two but certainly not 4!

You're looking great for 6 weeks with topping and lst. Good size and good canopy. You'll see an explosion of growth when you flip it to 12/12. Keep your temps comfy and your humidity high and youll be all good. Keep the roots happy and these will keep being beautiful plants. :blush:

Let met tell you that your plants look fine, they are growing out, not up, which mean that that are developing lots of branches and secondary flower sites. A squat plant is actually a good thing when growing indoors. One of the reasons they are not stretching is the low difference between lights on vs lights off temperatures, when they are close to each other, then the plant stretch very little if at all. If you want more stretching then drop the lights out temperature. Also over watering slows growth down to a crawl and you are using a very big pot, so mind that the media is dry before watering again. Keep in mind also that some strains are just genetically predisposed to grow short, specially indica heavy hybrids (like white widow). Cheers mate.

hey Green420room, you're right these should be taller by now ! they are healthy but they re too short, why? well as you know the plants grow towards the light, and your light is simply too close for them to grow up. With LEDs what's very important is the PAR rating, think of it as penetration, so low PAR means you need to be closer, high PAR means you can be away more. In your case you can probably move the light a bit furtherway like 10 inches instead of 5. so what 's important is to increase the lamp to plant distance. The good news is you can just keep VEGing until they are the correct height, probably will not take longer than 2 more weeks. Hope this helps ! :rocket:
