Started Crown Royal Fem. in 5 gal pots outdoors in early May. I live in Vancouver BC. When can I expect them to start flowering, do you think?
Google when your night time for your area exceeds the hours of daylight it should start flower soon after that 12 hours or more of un interrupted darkness is marijuanas natural cue to begin the transition to flower as fall is approaching along with first freeze … the plant is trying to live full life cycle grow vigorously until its signalled by mother nature to go into flower nature wants a Male to pollinate a female and procreate a viable seed to complete the marijuana plant life cycle but different areas are different start if 12 and 12
I just googled your area and u never get more the 11 hours and 52 minutes utes of dark so I dont know if it will be enought to signal your plants but that’s in November and October and I know it’s cold as all hell then… it dosent seem like its gonna be a workable situation u might need to bring them inside for flower… @Donaldj hes up in the Yukon if I’m not mistaken and he indoor I think for that reason
Not until end of Sept. Yikes! How long do they flower for?
Shortest flowering plant is 7 weeks most go upwards of 8 9 up to 12 13 weeks depending on strain I’ll look up your crown royal strain I’ll let you know in a minute
10 to 16 weeks of flower on certain strains…
To get the best results…
Crown royal is a 9 week flower and a moderate yeilder of 46g/sq foot with all the bells and whistles… so if this is anywhere near you first attempt dont expect those number of weight it’s just what expert growers have reported with also 22 to 12% thc unless u have everything from a to z you’ll be on lower end if thc
I knew peach was gonna come in with the 16 weaker… lol but hes in cold ass areas 16 weeks is 4 months if he starts light dep now hell be ready by Christmas with a 16 weaker lol… hey buddy u want you plants to flower as long as possible for the longer they flower the more size weight and over all mass will be… if your firmiliar with lst that will increase your yeild emensly my bending branches away from other so all your branches get even light that’s the only way to get close to breeders guidelines u got to do every step lst super cropping tiring branches down the whole 9 dont just let your plants grow naturally they will disappo in nt you on wieight
Yeah, this is going to be an issue. This is my first time growing reg feminized. Normally I grow autoflower. Didn’t think this all the way through…
My place is pretty small and I use a wheelchair so I have some creative thinking to do…
Thanks for all your input, folks!
Do you have any pictures of your plant? I have a friend that grows outdoors in Canada, I will ask him and report back.
The alternative is to create your own dark space and place your plants in this space for your 12 hours of darkness. One summer I placed mine (2 potted plants) in utility shed to create my dark period. Each morning I would put them out about 7 am. Then each evening around 7 pm I would set them back in the shed. This worked extremely well, since once closed up in the shed they had no light exposure.
I’m more concerned about the cold It starts to rain and get chilly by October in Vancouver. Even if I could start them flowering tomorrow, I have no way to protect them from the cold, damp days. They will freeze to death or grow moldy. I may have to ask someone to adopt them…
He said most by around August 15th or so. You are definitely treading thin water growing outdoors that far north. @MattyBear is in Pacific Northwest US, and I’m pretty sure he only grows autos outside?
@dbrn32 Yes, I should have stuck with autos. I’ve realized my mistake. With autos, I’m used to thinking “How many months until harvest?” It never occurred to me to check when autumnal equinox is because it didn’t matter. I did the same thing this year, but overlooked the fact that they’re not autos this time! Dumdum!
They’re looking really nice, too. I would hate to see them fail to finish!
Could finish up just fine for you too.
Its manageable bro like buddy said get some big card board boxes get inside them make sure there light tight and put them on at 6 30 PM and take them off at 6 30 am they will start flowering tomarrow but it rains in october u say dam maybe a visqueen cover to keep direct rain off and u can make it through just has to try a lil
