Wants short plants

Using an indoor hydro setup how can I make the plants as short and as fat as possible? Are there special techniques for these kinds of results?

There are three things that you can do to make your hydro plants short with fat buds. The first is to use a variety that doesn’t stretch when it flowers. There are many varieties like this, so check with your seed or clone salesperson.

Second, flower the plants when they are still quite short, about 8 inches high. Third, after about three weeks of flowering, trim off any side shoots which may have grown. The plants will remain short and chunky.
