Why does Marijuana get balance issues
Generally a plant gets a balance problem when the direction of the light source pushes it to grow in an un-natural fashion. Either too fast, or at an angle that it cannot sustain in the long run.
This can be generated by:
- A light source to far from it’s Apex: The plant will grow so tall the stem won’t be able to hold the weight of the top anymore.
- A light source too far to the side. Try to keep your light source as centered as possible to all your plants. If you can’t then get it a little closer (without giving them light burn)
In our case, during its very early growth the light we used was too far from them and not strong enough.
The 2 earliest sprouts just grew straight up to get as much light as they needed.
Once they we’re tall enough they started growing leaf mass, but its weak stem cannot hold all that weight, and after a little growth the plant falls over.
Now, plants are pretty well built, she will adapt in order to face the light source, but we will all agree that a horizontal stem isn’t the most optimal for a plant. You can see this right here on the picture. Found her like that one day, she had fallin over and stayed that way a couple hours so she adapted, facing up.
Lets get to how to avoid these situations early on, and then how to fix it.
