    Default Answered: Stretchy seedlings

    Hi guys, I’ve got 5 Photoperiod seedlings on the go all just over a week old. Fault of my own, forgot to even turn the light on before I went away but they’ve stretched quite a bit would I be ok, when repotting, to cover half the stem? I’ve got them supported, with a fan breezing over them to help strengthen at the moment

    Never had a issue with stretchy girls, but me being rushed about forgot to flick the switch

    That’s why I was concerned about is getting rot on the stem

    Looking good mate. Do them fans slow right down? Looks like growing in a wind tunnel

    I’d get them repotted and then think about some lst on them

    I’ve got 2 mutants from 3 seeds, not ideal lol

    they have 3 settings, setting 1 is still quite powerful though haha.

    If Lewis still had the oscillating front on it, it’d circulate the air beautifully.

    As it is, he’s a cack-handed oaf who has broken it...feck knows how.

    Btw, Lewis, if it is too powerful, just point it at a wall.

    Nice one Herb, no idea how the front came off I never really touch the fan

    It’s not too bad on them now mate, I need the stems to strengthen a bit

    Unsure what to do, usually run 4 plants in this tent and at the moment I’ve got 3 definite girls I want to run... but the other 2 runts don’t seems to be doing much. It’s a bit too late to get another bean soaked too because it will be that much behind

    I'd keep the supports on and get some air blowing on them they will either toughen up or break, but they cant break with the support on so you're only left with toughening up

    Il power through with them then I was planning on scrogging again but if she’s a slow grower then might make it a nightmare, unless I sit them a bit higher on something
