It's normal. They are called preflowers and it's the plants signal that it is physically mature enough to flower. You can continue on with the vegging and same light cycle without any problems.

Alright thanks....so i just continue the same process, and wait untill i want to flower the other ones....before i switch to 12/12. I guess i have two garuanteed.

Do i switch over to flowering nutes or just up the dosage on the veg nutes?

And one more thing, how long can i keep in veg....before i have to switch it over to 12/12 because i wanted to see a lot more growth on the other plants, but i mean if i have to i will....what do you say?
-Thanks

I feed 'em veg ferts(high N) the first week in flower
If they are seedlings, then switch to flower ferts.
Clones go straight to flowering ferts.

I've kept Mother's from seed as long as 2 years in veg light :3:
Pretty much as long as you want, without them dyin'.

Take clones and flower them.
If they(ones showin' preflowers) are showing preflowers
then they are more than likely female.
No need to clone for sex, clone for smoke :3:

Re: 18/6 light...and early stage of flowering???

i thought i post some pics of an updated look at my grow.....





in the above pic you can see quite a difference in size from the four on the left and the four on the right....the four on the right are in mid size pots....i want to start flowering but i want to see some more growth in the smaller ones.....

what do you guys think....keep in mind i have 2 plants pre flowering...how much longer should i do. I alos want to do some sort of SCROG....any advice?




signs of pre flowering


all plants are on about "mid size" dosage i should move up to full next wattering...but when should i throw it in 12/12 i was thinking maxium another 1 to 2 weeks....sounds good?

I used 24/7 on the first grow here for about 40 days, I think growth was way slow. But I didn't have much light at that stage, so it's hard to tell if it was light or lack of dark :)

I will stick to my 12/12 shorties for now, maybe veg one for an outside shade grow in Florida.

I germinate them and put them directly into the 12/12 room. But there are many ways to do it, just depends on how large you want the plants to get. Some will veg a week, 2-3 weeks then go 12/12. I don't clone yet, don't have the setup for it. I have been happy with the M/F ratio of my seeds so far so...
