    Hi guys as u can see from the pictures i have topped my plant twice and are now two feet tall approx(the main shoot) and is lst and supercropped...so after lst snd supercropping my height from the base to the top most shoot brachingnout from the main branch is 7inches I did the 2nd topping around 10 days back and since u can see two small shoots growing back again from the topped colas ...so i flipped to 12/12 two days back..
    What i want to know is how tall will these babies grow in height if i leave for 12/12 now till harvest . Will it be double of 2 feet or double of 7 inches since its lst and bent and supercropped ?. Thanks guys

    Depends on genetics mostly. Usually you can expect 12-36 inch stretch

    well from that inital 2 feet, 24" - you typically see the plant stretch, sometimes 100% sometimes 200%

    based on what looks to be 9 - 9.3w led bulbs....83.7w for that plant...
    I think you'll be lucky if you see that plant reach the 24" again given the light, and reflective material.
    maybe try sheets of white coregated plastic.
    try removing the plastic dome's off the front of the bulbs.

    to answer you question, in a adequate lighting scenario.
    you would have expected to see around 24" of growth at stretch

    That is entirely strain dependent. Some sativas will over double in size, while some indicas will only increase 25-50%. Even 2 seeds of the same strain may stretch differently. Judging by the look of your leafs, it may double or more (looks sativa heavy). And that's overall. If you had an untopped plant at 24in tall and 24 in across, if it doubles, it will be 48x48.

    A couple of side notes. First, a layer of semigloss white paint is more reflective than aluminum foil. The best material I know of to line a grow space with is reflective mylar, it comes in rolls and you can hang it like wallpaper. Or some foam board insulations are backed with mylar. And second, you can continue training the plant until flowers appear. Making a more even canopy will allow you to make the most of your lighting.

    Well to b honest thank god it wont double in size cuz i have around a feet left more to stretch it .. and yes u r correct ..its 9w led bulb and i opened the covee of one bulb..it has 9 led chips so i presume its 1w led chip ..and to my research knowledge ..u need to keep the light dist at least 12 inches from 1w led chips..but since the cover is there ..the cohorency f the led is diverged and spread out thus i can keep my plants closer to the bulb without light burning it due to the intensity of leds

    You figured all that out and you put bits of foil in?
    Not trying to be a dick but WHAT lol


    Its stretch will be based on strain and light like he said.
    Amongst other things that influence stretch temps humdity ect

    I like flat paint but, semi is easier to clean and more durable but less reflective then flat titanium white.

    Hope this helps
    But come on guy dont post all the stuff about lights and come at us with foil lmao white paper would be better foil looks shiny but you want diffused light

    Again not trying to be a dick

    I would definitely do that man cant beat the sun:)

    I would think a light proof box would be cheaper then a indoor grow but i dont know if you have black and white plastic where you are but.

    If it where me would try the sun youll probably get a whole lot more for your efforts

    Could always find a way to hide it on the balcony. Have some taller houseplants around it, and keep it trained low enough to stay outa sight.

    Lots of variables to that question. But given the info and loooking at the pics it’ll grow 5 inches more and you’ll get about 10 joints out of it.

    Shhiiiizz!! Now that sux ..i was expecting atleast 60, one gram joints out f it...-_- ..i m so use to the balcony grow where nature takes its course f action and gifts me with atleast 200g during winter every year...i think i should switch it back to veg for a while and let it grow before 12/12 ...?? Its my 6th day today on 12/12 ..i guess revegging now wont hurt the plants right ?..these babies r under 81w of 1w chip led lights

    A quick update after 17 days of flowering.
    The right plant is the plant which i previously posted the picture of ..see how bushy its grown ...as f now running on 72w since 2 bulb holders broke 4 days back..gonna b back to 90w again today.
    ..suprisingly for a regular led bulbs..the results r pretty good
