    Will gradually shortening days expedite the flower stretch?

    hey all! so i'm wondering if cannabis stretches due to the shortening of days? or is it the 12/12 flip that makes them stretch? if i gradually shorten their light schedule, until it reaches 12/12, will I see less of a stretch after i do flip?
