Plant height & Stretch

Hi all, gotta random question to do with flowering stretch

Iv read that sativa dominant plants can stretch 2 or 3 times theyre size from veg height.

Im guessing this is for untrained plants & was jUst wondering if a plant (durban poison) that had been topped ,lstd'd & kept under 6 inches for 8weeks veg would only stretch another 12-18 inches??

im abit worried bout changing from MH to dual spec too early incase of craaazy stretch. (now starting week 3 of 12/12 & hardly any stretch yet! 1 inch maybe:)

Any reply/info be gr8 thanks

Peace n budz

2 or 3 times is pretty standard stetch.

use metal halide untill stretch stops i do say 3rd wk of 12/12.

sounds like yours are not big stretchers. id go with dual spec now.

good luck :yep:

Yeah its pretty weird that it hasn't stretched much, durbans r known to grow huge!

Guess its cos of the way it been trained with over 35 tops its spreading its energy across the whole canopy instead of just up the 1 main stem or watever.

Its pretty coolB-) only my second grow wiv the lil 250watter & it works wonders. will post pics once I work out how to downsize them.(culd be a while

Peacebeatz'nbud

If its Durban it should be stretching quite a bit. There must be something wrong if its only stretched an inch because MH's don't make that amount of difference in stretch. Its minimal at best and durban is renowned for stretching seeing as its an outdoor variety. A full on indica would have stretched more than that
