From a fellow grower: outdoor grow in hawaii 7 gallon pots 82 degrees at day 74 at night 12 hours sun and daylight fox farms soil fem cali dream-plants are 1 foot tall and budding
Please invite them to join the forum. The short answer is that with a 12/12 day/night the plants begin to flower. Perhaps this plant started life with a light cycle that said “FLOWER NOW.” Perhaps the plant was also shaded or stunted by other suboptimal conditions in the medium.
In the future, they ought to consider planting during the long-daylight part of the year, or growing autoflowers when the light cycle is short-day.
