Well then I can’t wait to see lol I just added a co2 tank in there today I’m already at 3ft with a few and I have a 4 footer purple chem 4
Yeah your plants look pretty good...strain depending they'll stretch a good bit after flip...flip em at 3-3.5 n see where they end up...some may hit 5 some may go more but you'll definitely have tall plants....I go for width myself20210222_165122.jpg20210223_120903.jpg

+1 for the above (post #4) height is no use to indoor growers, width is what I'm after.

You'll have the tops of the plants well lit and nothing else, keeping it wide exposes everything to intense light not just the tops.

Strain has a big influence on height, get yourself a landrace sativa if you want to see some real height. Also, if you want to strengthen up your branches, give supercropping a try. Make you you have enough breeze going to move the plants a bit too, throughout the grow.

This is like my third grow and height has been better than my last but I want a 5 footer or something how can I achieve this?
It's easy to get a tall plant, move light back a bit or just veg a little longer. Get some fans blowing on them to strengthen stalk. I agree with other posters though, width and not height is what you should be after. Shorter plants with more colas are much better indoors. You start trying to grow a tree in a small space and will likely end up too close to your light and cause all sorts of problems. Good luck.

Each to their own but I'm aiming for wider still, here's my current grow and my previous crop.

Looks like some Dank...
Yeah I learned early...lots of tops works best indoor...whichever buds are getting the most intense light turn out the best...that's another reason I defoliate and remove large fan leaves that are blocking budsites...which is also a highly debated method...but seems to work out well for me

I’m thinking of the bar led from kind these structured lights supposedly break through more to the bottom of the canopy
