Topped then flipped

So there, i topped then flipped to flower a day or two after I topped... Thinking the stretch would let the new tops shoot up.

It Has been 3 days since flip and 4-5 days after last top and the new shoots/tops arent growing that fast compared to 18/6.

You think i can wait till the tops shoot up or switch to reveg now?

Im thinking there wouldnt any tops �� they are still as small half an ince long


I top thrice most of the time and get 10 tops.

Thank you in advance masters!!

This can depend a lot on genetics imo.

Like with afghan indica like genetics you have to veg them practically to size as the stretch can be as little as 0.5.

With viney kush stuff or sativas they can/will stretch for weeks and topping em at that time isnt the worst.

I dont know your grow sitch but i would top a few weeks before i flipped to get the shape i wanted and to allow more even apical distribution if that makes any sense.

It can also take them a week or so to respond to the change in red:far red and really start stretching.

Also topping stresses em as does flipping the lights and imo you need to give them time between these sorts of events.

Lastly if youre using more blue spectrum lights then that will hinder stretch because the far red:red phytochrome signal is weaker. I hope that kinda answered your question

What are you growing??

When you top you need at least 5 to 7 days of new growth before you flip. If not you too colas will not fill in correctly.

Those might stretch like hell on you anyway, the panama phenos will be more columnar and shorter, so its not the worst. They'll probs take 13-15 weeks so the sooner you get them flipped the better really.

Next time just do your shaping a bit earlier..

Happy growing

Enjoy your panamanian tigers!
