Hello! What a great forum! Thank you!
I am basically a new recreational grower here in Michigan where marijuana is legal, medical and recreational.
I had some rogue plants here and there in younger years, but I am now more serious about gardening…vegetables and flowers too.
Back in mid-March, I germinated 2 varieties of regular seeds (males and females) from Michigan hybridized outdoor stock. 12 of 13 sprouted great!
I have been tending to them very well, using an 18/6
inexpensive LED light source and a well recommended feeding plan. Transplanting to bigger fabric pots along the way…3 gallon. They were/are all very healthy and getting bushy (some early pruning), and were running out of room, so I needed to sex them and get rid of the males. I switched to a 12/12 lighting period and was able to tell their sexes in 2 weeks time
(8 females kept and 3 males and 1 hermaphrodite terminated).
Finally…the Michigan weather cleaned up and I have transplanted the females into raised beds outside three days ago. From sunrise to sunset we currently have almost 15 hours of daylight and 8 hours of un-shadowed direct sunlight.
They all look great…smell wonderful but are all flowering, and we still have a month until Summer Solstice, 15 hours and 18 minutes of sunrise to sunset.
My Questions: What to do now? Let the plants continue to bud or prune off all flowers?
And…what should I do next year with regards to timing and lighting?
Sorry to be so long winded here. Thank you!
