    Plant is growing too tall, please help

    Hey, this is my first grow and I'm on week 5. Today one of the plants was touching the light, its growing way taller than the other one and I'm having problems since I can't raise the light much anymore. Also the other plant is like half the size, so my question is can I bend the top of the plant or do I need to cut it off?

    Don't cut. Yes bending it is a good way to get it away from your light, you can also supercrop it. There is a tutorial on supercropping in GWE. Basically you lightly pinch the branch and squeeze it between your fingers crushing the inside of the stem but leaving the skin intact, then let it flop over.

        Two sound pieces of advice there. Supercrop and bend it over at the same height as the others, and maybe make a small wire wind brace to support what you bent over.
