Hi Marcus, you have some beautifully healthy looking plants there It's inspiring to see how organized you are with this project. Thank for sharing.

We have limited experience, but have done some research on plant stretching. I have a couple of suggestions. First is to keep the lights as close as possible to the plants, especially in the early stages. Seedlings placed further from the lights seem to stretch like crazy. Perhaps I'm wrong though.

The second suggestion is a patent pending, organic product which is part of the NFTG line, which we happen to use. It's called 'Bloom Khaos'. It can be foliar sprayed from early veg, through to around the 3rd week of flower, and promotes branching rather than upward growth (when used as a foliar spray). It's made from Kelp extract (Ascophyllum nodosum) & gamma (proprietary ingredient). When using it, you need to supply the plant with plenty of organic calcium.

When using Bloom Khaos as a foliar feed in Veg, one should notice more flower sites, larger, denser flowers, and superior color, flavor, and aroma. Bloom Khaos improves plant health and vigor while reducing stress at crucial times of the plants’ life cycle, such as: transplanting, flower transition, and prior to taking cuttings. Bloom Khaos works best if used daily as a foliar spray in the early stages of growth and up to a few weeks into flowering. After that, it works well as a water-in additive.

Foliar spray up to twice a day in vegetative cycle and as little as once a week to see the benefits of stronger stems, shorter internodal length, and ultimately more vigorous flower sets.

"Bloom Khaos is a calcium facilitator that, when applied to the foliage, promotes the uptake of calcium to promote cell building and cell division. When Khaos is used during the veg stage, it promotes more branching, less elongation and thicker stem walls. This is beneficial in veg because it promotes tight inter-nodal flower spacing so when you transition into flowering the flower sites start closer together and as the plants stretch towards the HPS color spectrum in bloom, the flowers have a better chance of stacking and growing into one another forming large top flowers." – Scott D Ostrander
Peace.
