Flowering start how to tell


#1

exactly when in the change from vege to flower cycle, would be considered the start of flowering ? when pistils appear or when a button forms. I ask because I may have my floer start time off by a couple of weeks depending on the answers I get here. Thanks in advance.


#2

When you see your first pistils is when you can start the flowering count.


#3

can you see the color of the trichomes, though. Thanks.


#4

I can’t see the trichomes on those pics.


#5

is it possible I could have delayed the flowering cycle by turning lights on in the dark cycle. I was checking them every night for temp and air flow. I would turn lights on to do so. I haven’t done that in a week and have noticed a spurt in bud growth. Thanks.

No lights except a flashlight during flower. Especially once they show pistils. You can cause some strains to herm really easy with any light except a headlight or flashlight.

Your taking a big chane there my friend. If your plants are in the dark for the night why would you want to take a rick of having them turn hermie on ya. If the lights are off leave them off.
I really don’t want you to post, My girl’s have balls what happened. ok

If your looking at your girls in the dark you better use a green headlamp cause the plants dont notice the green light if you dont your girls will have balls no flashlight
