Whadda think ? time to flower?

Morning ladies and gentlemen - Last pics I had posted were from 1/27 - this one is yesterday. Do you guys think it’s time to flower? My ladies are approx 3 1/2 mos old - and 2 1/2 ’ in hgt – . I haven’t started a nutrient regiment as of yet but I am soon, with the health of my babies as they are - I have not seen a need. But I do know that flowering takes a proper diet to produce maximum bud,.

Thanking you guys and gals in advance

Looking great! :+1:

I would have them in flower by now just for the simple reason most strains double in size during flower and space gets very crowded very fast if you veg too long you are in for some serious work. They will actually crowd each other out effecting overall yield and quality and require lots of training to keep them from getting too large
Edit: another thing to consider they can potentially get root bound before end of flower the larger the canopy the greater the root system as well

Thanks guys - grow room is 6’ x 5’ x 7’ high – plus theres a runt plant that I just couldn’t kill , total 5. These are kush plants from my cuz’s seed – 2nd gen. As of this evening I will have switched the photo period and bulb. I will keep you all posted and again thanks for the advice…

Better to get and apply good advice BEFORE I’m posting pics of sick plants and a crappy yield - thanks again all.

Soon unless youve got alot of headroom for them to double in size
They look great

Tonite is the nite for the switch – wish me luck all. This is my beauty bush - she’s a robust girl with a canopy of 20" and 24 buddin (potential) branches. She enjoys long days under the 600W lamp along with cool drinks of water and aspires to be BUD Of The Month one day.

Only ILGM seeds can be part of the BOTM contest, which kinda sucks. And I’m curious, why didn’t you use nutrients throughout the veg stage? Instead of waiting 3 1/2 months to get them to that size you could have potentially got them bigger in a shorter time period. So I’m just curious. They do look great though dude! I’d definitely start flower within the next 2 weeks if they were mine.

Cost alone can be a rational reason and if growth was healthy and steady why add nutes it means the soil is providing everything they need

Yes ffof only for veg works great for a short to mid veg me i like 60 day veg for my regs fem seeds and with Autos little extra for flower i keep PPM at 800 in flower the whole way i know if i pushed harder id get more weight but 3oz. A plant for me is okay for now but it is just for personal use and a fun hobby

Sorry for the late response - was welcoming my 6th grandchild and a bunch of computer problems. But , these are 2nd gen seeds from my cuz and she purchased from ILGM. But now she sez that they may be crossbred btwn OG and Purple Haze - can’t wait to see… Branches getting sticky and grow rm stinky - oh yeah!

And even though this is my first indoor in 30 yrs - I have not been an inactive gardener… (just got tired of helicopters)… In my past experiences if the plant doesn’t show need of nutrients then I don’t feed and all is well. Especially indoor and the possibility of build up in soil - outdoors it’s flushed automatically.

A very nice Garden indeed sir/ma’am!

And I’m with Bob31 who’s with PBS86 in agreement with Matthew 420 who is propping Donald who also thinks you should flower…!

Thank Paranorman - switched the lights last weekend. My babies are getting hairy and stems sticky. Will keep all posted - thanks for all your great advice. This is surely a great forum to pick all your brains.
