i started 1 of each white widow, gold leaf, blackberry kush & super skunk all the same time, treated them all the same all along. the ww is auto & the others are not. it’s gone to flower & sugering up but the other plants are not going to flower, they got nothing goin on yet. i changed the light cycle already figuring i would force them but nothing…should i separate them & put the 3 non autos back to 18hrs light or just let them go & hope they catch up?
How long did they stay on 12/12?
If you haven’t changed, I would maintain the course.
i started them on 18/6, only switched to 12/12 a week ago
I’ve had stubborn photos that refuse to flower on 12/12 before. I put them in a 36 hour dark period and that usually does the trick.
Autos don’t care about the light cycle, but you should make sure that they are getting their needed DLI.
Is likely just a plant maturity thing. Relatively young photo plants will take a little bit to transition into flower. I would expect you to see pistils within the next week. Only thing that I know may prevent this is a light leak or the dark period being interrupted.
ok…i caught the hub a couple times going into their room after the light shut off…(they share a room with my office but the plants are enclosed with mylar sheets around them and the lights) …so there have been a couple times an external light could have interrupted them…i’ll be making a sign for the door asap! thanks!
hmm…ok i can try the 36 hr dark if they aren’t showing signs within a week. i’m sorry, please forgive my ignorance, what’s DLI stand for?
Daily light integral. Plants require a minimum daily level of light for healthy growth. There are some DLI charts around here somewhere. You can probably find it my searching the site on “DLI.”
they got 18/6 the entire veg period & are getting 12/12 now, they’re on timers
Should be enough assuming you have decent lights.
spider farmer lights & i make sure to measure distance between light & plants all the time so they stay right in the range their chart says. i guess i’ll give it a few more days & if i don’t see anything goin on i’ll try the 36 hrs dark for the 3 & see what happens then. thanks so much for the help!!! really appreciate it a lot!
