Hey guys yous all know i am growing a XL kush auto and a blue widow photoperiod and i flipped the photo to flower its been about a week and still no pistols so what i was thinking about doing is changing the light cycle back to a 18/6 cycle due to theres no sign pistols yet on the photo so im thinking it maybe to young yet .So give me ur opinion on this problem should i change the light cycle back to 18/6 or leave it on the 12/12
Id leave 12/12
Hey thanks for ur opinion i really appreciate it see i normally grow autos so im getting impatient with the photoperiod i will see what other members have to say but i think i may leave it yet
It can take up to 2 weeks for a photo to show signs of flower after flipping to 12/12. How old is the plant do you have any pics?
It just hasnt started yet itll be ok
I just have thoughts going through my head i should let it veg more until the auto has one week to go and then flip or wait untill the auto is fully done flowering and then flip it or i just leave it on the 12/12
Less stress on the plant leaving it at 12/12 than it is flipping it back and forth
It should be ok either way though
Well thats i think because it hasnt started to show sex yet so it should be right to go back ro a 18/6
Indicates mature enough to flower - i.e. early preflower
If you let your plants sexually mature before you flip you can expect hedgehogs within a few days to a week. If your plant is not sexually mature, the light flip will cause her to become mature, but will prolly be about 2 weeks before you see hedgehogs. I wait til I see the pistils at the future bud sites, make sure my canopy is where I want it and flip at that point.
Just leave it 12/12, it will stretch out a bit more than flowers will start to show up.
So just wait mate
Ok i will take some close ups at the nodes so u can see for ur self and i appreciate your opinion and input ro @beardless im clueless when it comes to photos
Good morning I was wondering if I send u a picture of my plant can u tell me if it’s ready for harvest it’s my first time growing
My name is junior
I think you should be able to see the same structures on an auto before they go to flower.
I just flipped mine to 12/12and it been about a week and shes just now showing her pubes…
I’ve always done photos in green and it usually takes about a week for you to notice little hairs if you do a 12/12 light cycle. I have a Blue Dream going right now in my back planter box that I’ve been letting nature take it’s course and I’m about 4 weeks in. It’s been about 60s at night and hopefully it should show some color this time of round.
Welcome to the neighborhood . I think you have a few more weeks to go. How long has she been in flower?
