Are these buds?!

I’ve been fighting with these plants for the past month haha I wake up to new issues almost daily… today’s burning question is… are these starting to flower?
I have them under 17 hrs of light to get them ready to go outside in 19 days but what the ever loving hell is going on here?!


Nothing unusual here. Looks like a young plant still vegging.

Thanks for the reply @EclecticJack, man I hope you’re right… lol this grow has been super challenging to say the least. I just don’t need flowers yet lol

Looks kinda like it needs fed. The leaves look a little deprived of npk. Purple stems are a sign of I believe lack of phosphorus

Yeah haha they are currently in what I believe to be ph lockout and hopefully recovering, but I appreciate you @HornHead.
