Alright. Sounds like you need to be creative. With such a small space I am thinking you just want to flower the best looking plant you come up with. Hey, that 3 1/2 feet tall... is that total? Light fixture incuded? If you got a small light you are talking 3 feet... with a pot of any decent size you are talking 2 feet. Man, learn some tricks. You need to learn pruning and training. But with... Damn... ok I am drunk. If in anyway you could get a lil bit bigger it would be great. If not, good luck. Hope you get something. I have to keep in mind that this plant will live through a great bit of abuse. Do what you can.

Hey Florida, do you have any info on the bulbs you are using? I'm interested in the 2700k bulbs. What brand are they, where do you buy them, how much, etc. If you have a link or something that would be awesome. Thanks.

cant really give any advice out of the norm.... dont overwater, dont burn with lights, etc, but if the plants are already this far perhaps you had these basics covered. some pics would really help with any advice you're looking for....

any signs of nute burning or anything? are you using nutes at all? what kinda soil..? we need some more details!
