not budding

Discussion in 'Absolute Beginners' started by needhelp, Feb 3, 2003.

  1. i planted seeds about 3 months ago, starting in tiny little pots and now the plants are about 3 feet high, in planters but they're not budding
    im getting lots of leaves but nothing else
    im using 2 100W halogen lights
    was using hydroponic fertilizer 10-6-16
    but am not anymore and just using water
    how can i make these plants bud?
     
  2. Are they on a 12/12 lighting? ie. 12 hrs on/off? They will only enter the flowering/bud cycle once the light changes, once the lighting has been set you also ideally need to provide flowering nutrients, P/K 13/14 or similar. good luck. ps. next grow invest in HPS lighting.
     
  3. yup, 12/12 and definatly better lighting... halogen is gonna give ya the puniest buds you've ever seen... either get a High Pressure Sodium or Metal Halide.... or even a bunch of flourecent lights will work better.... good luck ;)
     
  4. get a real setup where your plants will thrive! i've got mine in a gigantic cardboard box! with a boxfan under the box and a HPS at the top with floros all round! keep them happy, and they will keep you happy. :)
