2 Metre tent 2 metre tall plants help

25 posts in this topic

Hey guys,

 

Title says it all, plants was about half a metre, flipped them 3 weeks back and there now 2metre tall and basically touching the top of the tent...

 

Where do I go from here? Top them and hope they don't stress or just tie them down and hope for the best?

 

Advice needed, thanks.

 

EDIT: Before asked, its a 1.2x1.2x2.0m tent with a 600W HPS on 'boost' mode which gives 660W and 5 plants.

Jack herer from Sensi Seeds, had them for a few years now they was a freebie to celebrate the 20th anniversary I believe.

 

I'm past the dreading point sadly, I had thoughts about cutting my lost and just chopping and binning them all but i'm not sure I can go through with that after spending so much time on them, the electric I have paid to get them this far etc. So badly looking for advice, hoping something can go right and I don't have to bin them :unsure:

dont top them after 3 weeks in flower mate stick a pic up and we can go from there ;)

even if you have to do some severe pruning to get it back under control its worth keeping till end now

plants that are basically touching the bulbs are no good.They buds that are in the light will be burning and blocking light for anything thing that it is below. I'd start again if it was me.
