Hey! New here! This is my very first grow from seed. Just reaching out to see if anyone can give me some direction.

Next week I will be out of town for 10 days and I was supposed to flip to flower this coming Sunday (the day before I go).
Any thoughts on what I should do?
Should I keep it in veg? (worried it will grow too much that when it's flowering it won't fit in my space).
Flip to flower now?
Flip to flower next week and have the first 10 days of flower unattended? I do have a auto watering system set up to water every 3 days when I'm gone.

Would love to hear any thoughts on my dilemma! Thanks!

Ok few options to flower when your not home. No . The plant could stretch and hit the light !
Option two the posted said let it veg 10 more days .
Option three you do not want the plant much bigger . Kill the lights for 4 days total dark. Then the timer comes back on 24/7 for 6 days for the veg to you get home . My way decreases growth and does not hurt anything . If growth is a concern option three is the best . Option 4 dim the light to 10 percent let it veg 24/7 to you get home . Should slow it down a bit . Best option is option 3 It wont stress it .
Option 4 can stress the plants and make stretch . Not the best option
Hope you have a digital timer . Keep the fans on at night or lights off or chance mold

Thanks for the options! I may do some more research about slowing growth while away. Anyway definitely gonna wait til I’m back to flip to flower.

What do you think would happen if I kept my light schedule the same veg 18/6 (currently at 75%) but brought it down to 25% for ten days. Do you think it would mess up growth beyond (hopefully) just slowing growth down?
