Hi guys I have a medium sized plant roughly 60cm. Last few weeks has started shooting out new growth stems and preflowers. My question does this look like preflowers or early flowering? Still in vegative lighting so not sure
Yep she is starting...there are a number of ways that can happen too early unintentionally. Are you certain of your seed source?
I can make plants flower in 24 hour light by using a certain "fertilizer" to scare them into breeding early but that is not common practice. Most people don't do that or use those chemicals in veg. That said similarly other forms of stress can induce early flowering.
Commonly it is a response where the plant is trying to propagate early due to environmental factors stressing it so bad that it thinks it can't make it all summer. The plants freak and want to breed now in order to save the line.
All of this being that we know it aint an auto right.
So if we know the seed is normal then there is a stress factor (most likely) which hopefully you can find. It may be in the soil...
Lets talk about your medium and your feed scheduled and how you mix your ferts up?
