I live in Southern California, coastal.
I started plants in late July. — Durban Poison —
About 7 weeks of growth stage at this point.
As the days have been getting shorter, I’ve been using lights to keep plants in growth stage, keeping light on them for 18 hours (the sun for day, minor grow lights at night - see photo)
They are now 3 feet high and have been topped for about a week.
It’s now mid-September and I wonder if I should stop the lights so they will start to flower.
How long will the flowering stage last?
I don’t want them flowering in the colder weather of November. - I think…
Is it better to let them veg-stage longer, to get larger, or get them flowering now to avoid colder weather?
How bad is colder weather for the flowering?
Any other tips that shout out, based on photos and what I’ve written?
Thanks a WHOLE LOT !!!
