hello stink bud to try and help you with this bring your lights closer , your plants are trying to reach your lights because the farther your lights are the less lumens they are recieving. as of right now i would start LST method which is slowly buckling it over so the lower and middle section can start there own grow and catch up with your tops . but like i said previously bring your flos closer atleast 1 to 2 inches from the tops or do the lst.

as a matter of fact stink bud you can do both if needed . with the exception lst does not slow your grow down like topping . also to add i would wait a while longer till you distinguish male or female before you top .if its gonna be a male topping would take that much longer to find out.

I had the same thing happen to my plants...just this past week. and I have 400watt MH inline air cooled lighting. I kept the lighting 3-4" from the tips of the plants. Would look the next day and they'd be pressed against the glass. Pic left to right: day 21, day 24, day 28, close pic of my "celery" stalks :cry:

what kind of seeds, soil, food did you use ravishing? They look like mine. All getting the exact same light, but some acting like they're not getting enough. I did notice that the leaf size is pretty small on it compared to the others, so that may be part of the cause.

These are Northern Light x Big Bud seeds. I have a DWC system with a drip system (hydroponic) and I'm using Dyna-Grow. The last plant I grew had wonderful spacing and was going strong and fast, but much more compact. Unfortunately, it has "balls" :eek: (male), so I got rid of it before it could drip pollen around.

Yeah, mj's pollen is soooo light, lighter then flour... about the same coarseness... any little breeze and it is everywhere.

no offense taken, it was to be a bit of dry humor... all I know is that as soon as it was sexed, I got it out of there... pollen is a baaaaaaaaaaaad thing for my grows. But thank you for correcting my horrible english.

with cfl's you can put them 1/2 inch from your plants if you have a fan. my plants are about the same age as yours but have 10x's the leaves with thick stems and are only 6 inches tall.
