    Serious Stretch - too top heavy

    I planted my seeds about 4 days ago and they shot up like 4 inches at first and then developed some new leaves. Now, because they grew so much, the are top heavy and the tops are bending all the way to the soil. Should I support them so early? 4 are g-13 haze and 6 are 100% indica afghan mafia

    Yep, but just a few days of a fan and getting the light as close as you can and they will be able to support themselves. Keep the liht low and watch the watering. They both lead to stretch.

    too much water and they will become leggy. and like Boss said keep the light as close as you can, to keep them from stretching to it.
