    Will my girls grow up any more?

    I’m in week 4 of flowering, I’m really pleased with my girls but as I’m a newbie and don’t know what to expect, i wondered if I could expect any more height from them over the next couple of weeks?

    No, you won't get anymore height now.. (sorry 😞) I'm at exactly the same stage as you are now but have the opposite problem.. I now have to worry about holding them upright as the buds fatten..(eeekk!!)
    So on your next grow, give them a lil bit longer in vege to get more height!!
    They look Good!! 😊

      If they grow any more in height it won’t be much. They’ll start fattening up and filling out from here on

          No more height but they'll continue to bush. Week 4 is a bit late but I'd give em a haircut to improve airflow and light penetration. The canopy is looking sharp!

            They grow up so fast. Before you know, they get their heads chopped off.

              Everyone says that plants double in height after you switch to 12s but in my short two years of indoor growing I've never seen more than about 1/4-1/3 of a stretch nowhere near double. I've started to allow them to get taller before I switch

                McEasy... I too have found that they haven't doubled in size but boy do they stretch!!... as I haven't experimented with LOADS of strains I feel it is a good 'rule of thumb' to keep in mind though....yes?!? 😊

                  Some strains do stretch more than others 4sure but I'm thinking that lights have alot to do with how they stretch. I'm only on my 2nd grow with my quantum board lights so I don't have alot of different strains to compare I'm thinking like 4 or 5 but I have noticed a definite difference from the old blurples but my 2 blurples are 113w each and my 2 qb are 205w each so that's a possible reason for the difference not just spectrum. Unless I do a bunch of different experiments or find a credible article about it I will never know. 30 years of growing off site where I would only visit my plants once a month or so I wasn't able to see the daily changes that I can now growing next to my bed, plus I didn't even know that there were people online openly talking about growing until like 3 years ago then my paranoid brain kept me from talking to anyone until a few months ago (thought half the people were cops lol) you can tell it's early I'm just talking in circles and babbling on and forgot what we were talking about lol sorry for the book of coffee induced thoughts

                  guess what I'm trying to say is I'm still learning this shit after 36 years and getting sick 5 years ago I opened a whole new way of growing by 3 years ago finding pandora's box on the internet 🤯🤔🤯 I didn't even know existed..... I'm sure having fun learning though 🌲😎

                    Of the 3 plants I have one has doubled in height which is my fat banana that seems to be showing a little more of a sativa look than the other fat banana that has only stretched maybe 60% but is more indica dominant. The critical crack I have has maybe stretched about 75%

                        That is awesome you have found this a good resource, so have I. Lots of smart people here and they're willing to share the knowledge. As has been shared already, plants are pretty much done with their vertical stretch by week 4 unless you have a really long flowering sativa. This is the point when you cut out the nitrogen and let the buds swell as they approach harvest time. Looks like you will be making it to harvest and will have some nice smoke to enjoy in the future.

                          ChadWestport .. Growing, I suppose like anything you take an interest in, is more complex the more you go along and learn about.. My last grow was actually better than this one. I'm like WTF?!?,, I have more knowledge now than I did 6 months ago so technically, this grow should have been "Better"!? 😬
                          Noo, the seasons and the unexpected pop-up problems all contribute or in this case, take away.. Sigh.....
                          Aren't doing badly but keep thinking that with each grow I'd get better but at the least I'm still gaining knowledge cos you should learn from your mistakes, right?
                          Its just frustrating as it IS alot of time etc from start to finish and we all want the maximum results, eh?

                            There is definitely a point of getting in the way of the plant. It basically will grow itself, but there are many ways to make it do better. I have made the error of trying to do too many things, by the book, but basically playing plant god and that didn't always turn out the best. The more I know, the more I try and let the plant do its own thing. They don't need to be micromanaged on the home grow level. Plus or minus a few grams per plant on each harvest isn't going to make or break us, but when you have 5 acres of it and it is commercial, thats when the tiniest of things make a huge difference. I guess that is a long way of saying, I agree, don't try and outsmart the plant. lol.
