As the days gets shorter at the end of June they'll go into flower.

I dont know about the end of June. The days may get shorter but they still are not close to 12/12. Plants up here in Michigan usually start flowering in the middle of August.

Depends on where you are. Your longitude and latitude will determine when the days sunlight becomes LESS than twelve hours. This is when most strains begin flower.

So when the days are longer than twelve hours the plant will stay in its vegetive cycle. As soon as the days get shorter, flowering begins as an attempt to preserve itself via seed production, before the winter frost kills it.

Old post, but I am growing outdoors in Michigan. I am also wondering when my plants will start to flower. Munchies stated that when the days start to get shorter than 12 hours.

Well I went on weather.com and for my location it says sunrise at 6:21 AM and sunset at 9:05 PM. Basically.. does that mean they will start flowering when there is under 12 hours between sunrise and sunset?

For the umteenth time I say "12/12 has no relavence to outdoor growing". Just when a plant will begin to flower depends greatly on the strain but almost all will start to bud long before 12/12. If flowering only started at 12/12 most of us would not be able to grow outdoors. The 12/12 photoperiod is used by indoor growers to trigger flowering. If you are growing outdoors just forget about 12/12.

I also agree with MH. Outdoor growing seems to disregard the 12/12 rule.

This does lead to another question though and maybe this isn't the right thread for it but when is the best time to up the P for flowering and what is considered too high? I've seen 12-55-6.

my plant started flowering a couple weeks ago. a plant will flower as long as the light period is less than 13 hours or so.. just depends on where ur at i guess. most plants started outdoors in may start to flower as early as july. but with it started indoors, who knows. just wait n see

can i take a outdoor plant flower it inside then take it back outside once it starts budding

well it go back to veg because light is not 12/12 because its summer or it doesnt matter because its to far in flower ??

also how long would i have to flower it inside before taking back outside ?

If you are taking your flowering plant inside to force flower I'm assuming under 12/12. You can take it outside to bud. BUT if your light schedule outside right now is still with summer lighting providing more than 12 hours of light and leave it there it will go back into a vegg state until winter.
You are going to have to bring it inside and back outside each day to maintain the light schedule.
If you are confused your plants are going assuredly be confused also.
