Hi,
I am new to this forum and new to indoor growing. I have 4 amazing looking plants that are now 6 weeks old. Looks like I'm doing everything right, but when I started 12/12 lighting I decided to put the dark period during the Day so the lights are not on when I'm at work.The room has a window that i cardboarded up and I sealed up the top and bottom of the door with towels.
I did open the door and jump in the room real quick to see if it was totally dark and I can't see any light getting in, totally dark. Now, 10 days into flowering I still don't see any sex and I'm worried that when the sun is right on that window some light might be getting in.
My question is, If I was to switch the darkness to night time should I go 24 hours of Darkness or go 24 hours of light to get the 12/12 on schedule for the Dark being at night?

Thanks for any help,

Dont change anything. Your plant was not sexually mature when you began the 12/12 period. Let the transition continue and be patient.

Thanks guys,
After 7 days of 12/12 I put a Black towel over the window also. So now it has cardboard and A black towel.By the way its a bathroom and a little bathroom window. I was wondering if me opening the door during the day might have slowed it down? or screwed it up completely. It was only like 2 seconds of light, but I had to see if it was totally dark.

I have a Digital Camara and will take some pics when the light comes on. They are short bushy Indica Plants. I started flowering when they hit 12 inches, now they are 20 inches tall and out growing my space.I put bloom booster on them and they grew 2 inches in 24 hours but no blooms.

I will follow up with pics in about 4 hours, Thanks for the help,

Yea, it is bag seed. I believe it was grown outdoors too.The reason I held on to them and used them for my first indoor grow is because it was some really skunky good stuff.

I'm ordering seeds for my next grow, either White Rino or Aurora Indica.

Thanks for all the help,
Lights on and no flowers, looks great though. I'm gonna wait 21 days to see if I can get some flowers, if I don't I might switch my 12/12 to the Dark period at night.

Here are some pics, I've got 4 plants in 1 big container, so they are cramped. I'm not going to transplant now, just let them go until the end and get what I can get. It's for personnal use only anyway.

They look a little droopy because they need water, I wait for them to droop a little to insure no over watering.

I got some big planters for my next grow (1 plant per pot)

Lighting:150 watt HPS and 4 CFLs /26 watt 2700k
Soil: Miracle Grow Potting Mix

having 4 in one container is definitely a problem

I think I see some male flowers forming here. Take a look at your plants and see if you can get a closer picture of where it's circed below...

Yep,
I think the back 2 are males, The sacks are getting bigger. Both of them came up first and are growing way taller and faster than the front 2.

Thats OK, Give them a few days to make sure then I'll chop'em down. More light and room for the front 2.Also I found out the room is dark enough during the day.

It's ashame about the back left one being Male, it smelt like a skunk squirted on a Cedar Tree, great smell and color.

1st pic is the back left, the other is back right.
