    How do I bud my plants?

    Hey, my plants are about 1 1/2 feet tall and have been growing for a while. Can I start budding them? And if I can, how? They got white hairs coming from the stalk which is the first sign I've seen, please, any help will be appreciated, thanks.

    Flowering Period starts 3/8/05
    Once the plant has reached the size you want, you can initiate flowering by giving exactly 12 hours of darkness and 12 hours of light per day. Usually the flowers will be ripe for harvest after 7 to 9 weeks.
    Flowering is induced when the level of a particular hormone reaches a critical point. This hormone is produced during the dark period (night) and destroyed by light during the day. It is important, therefore, to ensure that the dark period is totally uninterrupted by any light , even a few minutes could disturb this sensitive process and set backs are a real bitch at this stage…!
    If you want more "info" go to my grow journal it is all there or will be soon...

    Re: How do I bud my plants?

    Hi all,
    My plants are about 2 1/2 to 3 ft tall. They have started to go whiteish at the ends where the new leaves are growing. no hairs or watever yet tho. they are more or less filling my window. one is whitewidow and the other is jackhera i think. what is the best way to make them bud. Shud i put them in a cupboard (if they fit) for 12hours of darkness then bring them out back to my window for 12 hours of sun. do they need perfect darkness with out any interruptions of sun light or bedroom light. i thought with it coming dark early they would bud them selfs. does my bedroom light affect it. Help me out lads/lasses be4 they get huge.

    yes, they need uninterrupted darkness for 12 hours and then, as much light as you can give them. i am responding to your request even though i have not made many posts. but i got an e-mail from 420 saying that people who have used their info and had successful grows should help out. i religously have never violated their darkness. if you read a lot of 420 grow room suggestions, they are unanamous. DO NOT VIOLATE THE DARKNESS! i can only use cfl's because i have no way to vent heat. however, i have had extremely good growing success due to the info here.

    Re: How do I bud my plants?

    when the nights warm up past 50, I dont think I would leave plants out in anything colder, you could go earlier with a cover. If you start them inside you can put them out around this time depending on how far south you are and they will flower and regen over the summer, just harvest the top third and most of the bud and let them go. Seed wont sprout in cold temps so it depends on your weather, I have read pot wont grow at 65, but I have been growing outside in the 50's this year and the plants are doing great. I dont leave them out at night though, I just sun them in the daytime then put them under lights the rest of the time.
