I am almost done with my first grow. I have four white widow plants (down to three now). They were in a grow tent that was about five feet tall, but they got too tall for it so I had to take them out of it a few weeks into flowering. I was growing them during the veg period with an HPS light which I heard makes them taller, but I don't know how much of a difference that actually makes.
The reason this is all relevant is because I want to grow a sativa for my next grow, but I'm afraid the plants are going to get too big for my closet. Since this is my first grow I don't have much to go off of. The site I bought my white widow seeds from said they got around 40-50cm tall. The plants ended up being about 5ft tall. The other seeds I'm looking at getting from this site say they can get like 80-100cm tall. I don't know the metric system, but that's fucking big. If I go off of what these white widow plants did then in theory these sativas would be like ten feet tall. That dog just ain't gonna hunt. I don't need a tree farm in my closet. I live in an apartment so that would be a bit of a problem.
My question is for the people that have grown sativa varieties indoors. Do they really get that tall? I plan on growing them under continous light for about 3 weeks and then switching them over to 12/12, so would that help to keep them quite a bit smaller? Here is the link to the seeds I was looking at. Any opinions and information on the subject would be appreciated. here is a link to the seeds...
