neah they would be alright, hpw tall are they?

you could tip them, or put it in the gound, bigger pot, or have weights strapped to either side of the trunk

if your seedlings are stretching, its cause your light is too far away or is too poor. I suggest you move them to a sunnier area. If they are slightly older and your referring to them getting too big, tying them down or topping would be good options depending on wether or not this is an indoor or outdoor grow.
If the stems get weak, a small Y shaped branch may be in order to prop them up =P

please check this site out, especialy the grow FAQ.

if it is indoor i might suggest creating some wind with a fan or something.
the more wind the lower and wider it will grow.

whoa...

Ok.

The genetics are a first. How tall is your plant SUPPOSE to grow? If it is going to grow two feet during veg, and then 3 more feet during flowering then you arent doing anything wrong. Thats healthy. Now if you have space restraints, pull the lights closer but be aware that that will increase heat which can burn the tips of your plants. Thats bad.
you can also top, and train the plants to grow a certain hieght, but that takes some skill.

And the more wind you have, just means that they will be getting an efficient flow of air, it will not mean that it is cooler. Trust me. My first grow went out the fucking door because i didnt want to splurge on the bills.

and 76 to 80 degrees is resonable for plants.

have you ever checked out:
overgrow.com

Extensive website that goes into all those important grow questions. they know everything there is and everyday i learn something new there.
(great strain reviews too. there is a cute short bonsai marijuana plant by dr. greenthumb i think, its the lowryder. either him or joint doctor. One of the docs._)

Do you mean temp?

If so:

I mentioned it. (Clearly.) And actually, you suggested a tip for indoor growing yet posted a pic of outdoor...

:undecided:

but besides that, more "wind" or "air flow" allows for the plant to get a rich abundance of CO2 something they love and makes em grow hearty and strong (allowing for the best potential grow). as a great grower put it:
"CO2 is the gas that plants need most to grow, the roots need to get oxygen. Supplementing CO2 is most needed in high light gardens where lots of plants have limited fresh air. You produce CO2 when you breathe near your plants but they may need more, talk to your virgins, exercise with them or just shoot them some CO2. Always have a small fan on plants when the lights are on too. "

in an indoor set up your limited on that great fresh air (unless he has a sweet set up with air ducts and what not, but if he  has that set up then he wont need tips on topping. its string!) And a fan will only circulate the air, it wont produce fresh air if in a closest, therefore watching a close eye on the temps wouldnt be bad. Infact, its pretty necessary when growing indoors.

but alas, he grows outdoors. so i guess its pretty useless for this type of info.

so IMHO i am going with topping.

btw-if that is a pic of an outdoor plant then how did you control the air flow? i mean, you are outdoors so...?  (ps, i think that plant is at the end of its veg..which means its gonna grow atleast another foot....)

(not to be offending, and if it wasnt temp then oops)

im simply illusrating what a plant that recieves alot of wind looks more wind=fat stems and low plants.

are u on a mission from god to disagree or something?

my point is very simple dude:
outside u have wind, inside u dont so it might be usefull to create some.

> is there anyway to avoid or fix the plant getting to long and falling over?

Yes, but it depends upon the cause. For baby plants, use a small stick and tie the plant upright. If indoors, use a fan to help stir up the air. As the plants sway in the breeze, they will strengthen. If you use too much nitrogen, or too little light, the plants will stretch causing them to grow tall and thin. (When you reduce light to enduce flowering, the same type of stretch will occur until the plant switches out of growth mode and into flower mode...) If I remember correctly, hot temps also cause a plant to stretch, but I never verified this one.

you didnt answer a single question....*shakes head*

...Im not on a mission to disagree, just on a mission to provide accurate info. isnt what this all about?(and anyone will tell you the increased amount of CO2 wont do shit for stunting...NOTHING. Infact, today i learned that it would increase the size of your roots and increase the size of your bud so...:) what can i say? Having a bontanist live with you has its percs. Ha. Percs.)

smoke a bowl dude and chill. nothing wrong with disagreeing.;)

If i was in the same situation I would just burry the over grown seedling stem with soil..


Alot of people will dissagree but thats my quick fix.
