    If you're still in veg and nearly at you max height then you have as they say "fooked it". Expect your plants to at least double in height after you go 12/12. I would start thinking about alternatives to the tent for flowerin them if poss. Did exactly the same on my first grow mate, its a common mistake....windle

    You can lst all the stems.Pull them right down and tie to the pot.Then about the 3rd week of 12/12 untie them or or leave them tied.It wont affect the buddage Ya might find ya get more.
    Maybe even supercrop.Snap the stems
    Give them a few days to recover before flipping 12/12 if you do any bending/snapping, but as you have reached your max height I would be flipping pretty sharpish
    Or if its possible install a scrog screen over them
    If ya dont fancy any of these then like windle says ya gotta get some more height in ya tent




    Peace

    lol, my 1st mistake too!! (one of many)!

    as posted, when you switch 12/12 expect them to double in size, the s-t-r-e-t-c-h realy does catch people out as they arn't expecting it when they switch 12/12.

    if your still in VEG then to keep things managable when you switch, i'd reccomend topping, then supercropping any nodes that you keep. give her 5 or so days to recover, then go 12/12. all gouing well she'll fill right out with bud and you'll end up with a nice harvest.

    Started bending it to a 45% angle today, seems ok, but abit of water came out of the stem, have a bent it too much and it will cause stress to the plant?

    Pretty worried now as i bent it too much and its sort of snapped!!!! felt like i just killed a baby!!! haha.... didn't like the feeling, have a killed this plant?





    Space is a wee bit better than before as it was at max tent height really which means i will have no space for a carbon filter!

    She looks fine.It should knuckle up nicely
    The bottom growth should catch up now as doing this creates "auxins" or something
    Thus makin the bottom growth think its now top growth so it grows faster.
    There is a better way of explainin this Im sure someone else can do better lol
    They are kinda stretched dont know if thats the strain.

    stretching happens when the light is to far from the plant so the light stetches to get to the light.

    so next time but the light about 5 - 7 inches from the plant and slowly move it up as the plant grows.

    To be safe I wouldn't . I think there is just to much weight from that point to the top of the plant, you run the risk of breaking it.

    Just do some lst now.
    Tie the top down so it cant grow upwards anymore.
    Then when ya side shoots catch up tie them down too.
    Ya could snap again but as Burnz says theres gonna be a lot of weight there.

    Whats "lst"?

    Am thinking now to bend it in the middle of the bended point to the top? our just try and tie them but the stem seems pretty strong to bend now.

    I think it stands for "light stress technique" and its just what I said it is tieing the stems to hold them down so they cant grow upwards.Thus "lightly stressing the plant
    The snapping of the stem you just have done is refferred to as "HST High stress technique".As obviously its more stress to the plant
    Your branches look fine for some lst.
    See where you snapped her and now shes growing back up to the light get a tie on her so then she cant.Then that shoot second down will start pushing up more like Iv tried to show in my dodgy pic.Try it and see.
