Late start question

Question: Late start due to sprouts dying from FFOF and overwatering. I’m growing Northern Critical from HGCC, grown outdoors. They are only about 1.5 weeks old but my main concern is my growing window since there is only about two months left in the season. Will my plants dying before flowing or will they just switch to flowering early when the natural light schedule changes and i’ll just end up with a much lower yield? They are Photoperiods.

God morning :blush: what are your temps going to be in Two months? Cannabis will take some where around 18 weeks from start to finish. That is just a rough estimate. Good luck on your grow :blush::v:Have a great day!

It’s hard to tell with the summers getting longer due to global warming but last September averaged 65-68

Because you started them later they lost some of their veg time, so you’ll end up with smaller plants. Although this might not sound the greatest, this could actually be a good thing. smaller plants are much easier to handle, if in pots you’ll be able to move them during bad weather or extreme temperatures.

Yes they will start to flower once the days get shorter, they just won’t be as big.

Thank you.
that’s what I was expecting. i haven’t transplanted them yet but i have 5gallon cloth planters. Good learning experience

@kwall429 you may be surprised at the temps your plants can deal with. If you get them going now you will have a decent harvest. It’s not too late.
