Flower question

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by kingpinbuddha, May 11, 2011.

  1. How long into the flowering process until I start seeing buds or flowers I went into flowering on the 8th of this month had to because my babies are already a foot to a foot and a half tall and I've heard that they can double or quadruple in size and only have around 5-6 feet of height to grow so had to force flowering couldn't wait till I saw pre flowers
  2. This is usually strain dependent but I'd say as long as 2-3 weeks. I placed mine into 12/12 around end of last month and it took almost 2 1/2 weeks to confirm all the sexes.
  3. There are several variables involved including strain and overall maturity of the plant when the photoperiod was changed. The question reads like when will I see buds?... If that's the question then it will be a few weeks. If you are asking when you will see signs of sex ie pistils or pollen sacs then anywhere from 5 days to 2 wks is perfectly normal. I usually see signs of sex at around 1 week but again depending on stain and maturity it could take more or less time.
  4. Anywhere from a few days to as much as 3 weeks.

    Is your plant showing alternating nodes?

    FYI, you aren't "in flower" until your plant is in flower. Flowering is a plant life stage not a timer setting.
