Flowering while in veg?

I’m a newbie to the grow thing (third grow) but have learned a lot rom these rooms and the two previous grows. Currently have a Super Silver Haze that is about 6 weeks from seedling. I haven’t taken her out of veg lighting schedule yet, but for about a week now she has been growing pistils as if she is flowering or beginning the process??? Is she flowering? Or what?

Have any pictures?

Edit: While we wait, are you referring to actual flowers on colas starting to form early, or are you referring to the female pistil forming at a node on the plant?

If it’s the second one, plants that are in the vegetative state will still produce those and it’s a convenient way to sex your plant early without doing any weird things to it. I’ve had plenty of plants do this.

If it’s the first option, then it may very well be an auto flowering plant like @Newb1 said.

Pics and what’s your light schedule check your timer may of got changed some how or maybe a auto

Timer is definitely correct - 18/6. Was planning to switch next week anyway, so if it is doing it on its own, so be it. Have 2 other strains right next to her, and they don’t have any pistil growth which is what started me on this quest for knowledge. Not really sure I need to know…just want to.

It could have been an auto flowering plant got mixed in with your batch of seedlings by accident. @Newb1

Yea she is for sure flowering anyway you may have ordered that stain as a auto

Of the 2 options you present, I’m going to go with the second. Definitely not an auto flower unless the seed company gave me the wrong seed. Judging by her size so far, she has far surpassed the autoflower I grew on the 2nd grow, so I’m going with it is photo

If ya want, clone that plant and see what happens when you veg it again, you could have an anomaly :smiley:

Like I was saying, was planning on the switch next week anyway, so not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but thought it odd that her sisters from another mother (actually a week older than her) don’t show any of the pistils. Just like the knowledge.
Thanks for your answers.

Some autos can become very large before starting flowering, not all autos are small/short.

Unless you have a female to Pollinate it with, it’s just there to look pretty.

You’re welcome! If you’re interested there’s a wonderful grow bible you can download from this website, or if you’re looking for an actual book, The Marijuana Grower’s Handbook by Ed Rosenthal and Cannabis Cultivation, A Complete Grower’s Guide by Mel Thomas are excellent reads!

@beergirl welcome to the forum

Heres a link https://growbible.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/the-marijuana-grow-bible-free-original/

Yup welcome to the forum. Always nice to see new people.

Also if you dont have a girl to breed him with intentionally and ready like now. Id kill him. His pollen could DEVASTATE some hidden grows in your area. He can and will knock up any viable female that gets his pollen within miles. Just growers courtesy. Lol. Best of luck in your future grows.
