A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

I have a general question regarding the listed indoor flowering time on seeds. Is it from the flip date or the date pistils begin to show?

My question is regarding the actual start of that calculation. Is it from the day the lights are changed to the flowering cycle timing? The SLH list 65 days and the GL list 63 days. These are rather specific numbers. I’m not looking to hold accountable and expect the plant to be perfectly mature by those days. I’m looking for a start point at which I can count out those days and then begin to look for the maturing process.

If you’re growing photoperiod strains, then the days count is after the flip. Autoflowering strains flower and mature much faster. They’re total life cycle can last 65-80 days.

Depends on who u are as to how u count it. Most breeders and nute lines start the count at first signs of pistils after flip. Others count from day of flip. Autos are almost always counted from day it pops the soil without a shell cap. Their timelines are the full lifecycle not the flowering cycle.

Btw. Most of those claims are at least a week or 3 off. Underestimated.

Good luck.
