Hiya all, I’ve moved my plants in to flowering now, but they did grow a bit bigger that I wanted. The plants are now a bit too close to my light.:rolleyes:

So my question is: What do I do, do I trim them, or not bother? :confused: I’m not massively fussed if my harvest is down, it no big deal!

If your lights are at their highest point, I can't see that you have much choice, but to either top them [cut off the highest bud(s)], which will shock the plant and set it back a bit; or you'll have to do a late-in-the-day LST (low stress training), which amounts to pulling the highest branches over and down with string, yarn, or some material that will not bruise the stems, just as "monkey" stated.

if you keep having this problem an aircooled reflector works great and allows the plants to get much closer to the light. mine are 1 foot away from my 600 watt hps and they are loving every minute of it!
