    Ok its my first time growing and I started growing 6 plants 2 weeks ago. And so far they each grew from 2 to 5 inches. Im growing them in my closet. Its a pretty big walk in closet. and its ttly empty eccept for my plants. I have great lighting. I bought 3 big a** 80 dollar growing lights so i know thats not the problem. And today i went in there and watered them, and talked to them a bit. and i just went in there and theyre falling over. wtf do i do?

    your plants have stretched due to your lights being too far away or the soil is too wet. lower the lights so that they are as close as they can be without burning the plants - use your hand to test the heat.

    for now, you need to stake up the plants. use something about the size of a pen for a stake and tie a string very loosely around the plant. it will be strong enough to stand on its own within a couple of weeks.

    Your plants are drowning! Let the soil dry before you water again. Pick your pots up and feel how heavy they are. When they feel light and your plants still look good, its time to water. Add a root tonic like Canna Rhizatonic or Root 66 or something for root rot next time you water. It will help the root zone recover.

    This isn't going to help your problem right away but get some Barricade. The product is made by Advanced Nutrients. It builds stem cells and puts a crazy hard protective outer layer on your stem to protect from bugs. If I don't stop using it when I start 12/12 cycle then the stem gets too hard and you gotta use some pretty frickin' heavy duty scissors or Tin snips. Highly recommended if anyone hasn't tried it.

    Im not too woried about bugs. its like 14 degrees out side so my bet is theyre all dead until spring. But what im worried about is mice. My brother tried to grow some plants and about a month after he started growing them they all dispeared. He wanted to know why. so he stared growing again and this time he set up a video camera. and he saw a mouse just ripping its right out from the stem. It was fucking crazyy. It happened to one of my plants so far. So im planning on getting mouse traps ASAP

    Oh and pluss I know it might be good to put pestisides and shit on them but Im not going to. Im gonna do it all natural like my dad. Cuz his shit is thee bomb ass. I stole a bowls worth from him once and that shit got me even higher than i was when i smoked 2 blunts of my own kind
