when i put my plants in the flowering cycle (12/12) they get a growth spurt lasting for about one week. my question is do outside grown plants get the same growth spurt? or does it happen to indoor plants because of the stress they are under?
My indoor plants can't get much taller than 44 inches tall....Big can grow trees outdoors. Thinking he can handle more of a growth spurt than me. I have to top my plants to contain how tall they get..... don't think Big has that problem.
The growth spurt you are seeing is normal and how much it will grow first depends on genetic. Sativa's (some will grow an inch or more per day for around 5 to 10 days), are usually tall and lanky while Indicas are usually short and stocky. The "stretch" is usually considered over around the end of the 3rd week of flower. I feed veg nutrients until this time as N is vital during this growth. Vertical growth will continue but at a much slower rate as the plant puts more energy on building flower sites (nodes) at this time.
