do you have a link?I've never heard of bolting so I looked it up. there is a site called the herb gardener blog spot. On the site it says when conditions get hot fast the plants go into survival mode and start directing all its energy toward flowering and setting seed. You wont like what they say about dealing with it. If you get a chance look it up . Herb gardener (herb bolting)
Yeah, bolting is REALLY unwanted flowering, like on carrots, or potatoes, causing the root to suffer loss of attention. Or on Lettuce, or herbs like basil, or dill, causing a bitter aftertaste. A cannabis plant can't really bolt, unless it's during the vegetative cycle, in the strictest sense. However, some here have started to refer to foxtailing and hermaphroditic growth as bolting which, in only the loosest sense of the definition, could it be referred to as such, and then it is really pushing it. I guess they are hanging onto the "unwanted flower growth" part of it. But to me that's calling a go-cart, or golf cart a (passenger) car, and trying to drive either on the freeway.what is bolting? what causes it? and how to stop it?
"Bolting is when agricultural and horticultural crops prematurely produce a flowering stem (or stems) before the crop is harvested, in a natural attempt to produce seeds and hence reproduce. These flowering stems are usually vigorous extensions of existing leaf-bearing stems, and in order to produce them, a plant diverts resources away from producing the edible parts such as leaves or roots..."what is bolting? what causes it? and how to stop it?
