Wow, I thought I had seen it all. I'm an experienced grower both indoor and out. I've been running my veg room kinda cool during the night with the reservoir temps pretty low. I was having some seriously slow growth. My plants turned out like little fucking shrubs. I even have one that has flowered and turned out being male. I pulled him out and he's already producing pollen. I don't know what the hell is going on. I can't find mention of this in any of my books (Ed rosenthal and jorge cervantes). Now I'm supposed to be a week away from transferring to my flower room and they are all about a foot too short. I thought about turning the lights to 24 hour from 18, but i'm afraid that will completely screw them up this close to going into veg. It has actually happened with several strains, under several different lights. I always thought that it was a light issue. Hopefully someone has had this problem and can answer a few questions. 1) Why did this happen in the first place? Temps? Light? 2) How do I keep this from happening again? 3) How can a photoperiod plant turn into an Auto-flower? 4) Should I keep any of the pollen from this one male for future breeding, and would it end up making all its kids an Auto flowering strain? I understand not everyone will be able to answer ALL the questions, but feel free to answer what you can. I have included a couple of pics.
