Why a new thread? What is you're light schedule? In your other thread you said they were autoflowers. They're not autoflowering so if you don't have them on 12/12 they are not going to start flowering like they should.

Supercrop or bend them over and tie them down. Switch to 12/12. Just letting them grow into the light makes no sense. You have to make a decision. Standing back biting your fingernails while not doing anything isn't going to get what you need done. It's time for action not panic.

Good luck.

Ok, they are to the light and higher!! Do I need to cut them some??? I just want to have some and not kill the plants. It’s all mine!!!
Been there a million times......start very slowing bending the tops in a horizontal position......if they are still young tender stems on top , start bending tops with light weight washers attached to a small "s" hook.....go easy.......works great........end up holding mature vertical branches down with heavy wrenches for weights. Don't cut those beautiful tops , only if ya want to.

I do this with s hooks and weights, makes the branches get stronger and able to hold the weight of the future flowers easily.

Yeah if it gets too big you sure can.

In the future if you know the strain it is possible to time the flip to 12/12 so it gets right up there but no further.
It just takes watching and learning.
