Training plants is a must when growing in small spaces..if your AK is sativa dominate you are going to run out of room...i would start trying to tie her down before her stem gets too stiff...i got a Auto AK growing..:goodluck:

hi mate i cant the stems are really stuiff they will snap. i can put the light up 15 more inches then thats it.lol

Your plants look good..just remember plants usually double in height when they flower..if they are 12 inches when you put them on 12/12..they will be at least 2 feet at harvest..:thumb:

what a predicament to be in........i been watchin your grow alot but never paid attention to how much room you have up top. i been following since veg and wish i had noticed your height restriction then. i would have recomended LST for you AK for sure just to buy u a few inches. if you have 15 inches left and their already 14 days into flower then id hold my breath and take the plunge. theyve already been growing in bloom for 2 weeks and i remember the last 3 weeks of my last grow i didnt have to raise the lights one time. you should make it out with just enough room

Oh rite thanks mate i was getting worryed i done somethink wrong. because at one point my tent got up to 30'c.

ak seems to handle high temps and low humidity quite well, my tent kept hitting 30-33c midday with basically zero humidity...its really dry and hot in my apt building...and it looks like i'll still get a great yield....truth is MJ is a weed and will grow in almost any condition but the very extreme...may not be ideal but it will still turn out good smoke even if stressed... Ofcourse optimum conditions will maximize your yield.... but after you get a few grows under your belt these little issues won't ever bother ya at all.

aint that the truth kilo.. ive never grown my plants in any humidity of 20% i cant do a thing about it in my parts unless i decide to get a humidifier. i dont feel i need one my plants grow like crazy in these conditions.

That AK does raise my eyebrows since its leaves are doin that but if Kilo says its happened to him id take his word. always take the advice of someone who grew your strain and did well at growing it.

i hear ya man, shoot i actually have a coolmist humidifier in my tent, but my inline fan sucks the air outta the tent so fast it makes little difference when it comes to humidity, though it does reduce the temps in my tent by 1-3 degrees C....

well all want the "optimum" grow conditions, but unless you have a space with some serious environmental controls is hard to do...just gotta do the best ya can with what your stuck with...
