Do you count flowering from 12/12 switch or when you see pistil hairs?

Being a “standard” among a bunch of indoor cannabis growers does not make it biologically accurate. Indoor vs outdoor doesn’t really matter either.

Biologically it takes a period of time for the plant to build enough hormones to actually begin to flower. The length of that period can vary depending on plant varietal and environment. Biologically that period is referred to as the “preflower” period, it’s also commonly called the transition period.

I quit counting many years ago because it doesn’t really matter. I grow my plants until they are ready and I feed them what they need along the way to keep them happy and healthy. Plants can’t read calanders, and sure don’t care when you think they should be done.

So it looks like sept 28 will be my first day of flower outside this year :hump:

That’ll put me at middle of December harvest time

you’ve been a great help thank you.
Around here we just care about when our regular season outdoor is ready to take down. Couldn’t give a fuck when they technically start flowering. It’s not like we are going to replant as soon as they’re done.

His point is that they begin flowering without ever being put on 12/12. And that they are considered flowering once you see flowering growth happening, not because some arbitrary day you switched the lights.

keep reverting back to “we all” & “around here we”


So far all I see is you typing this garbo?

Huh?
If you took indoor vegging plants and threw them outside when the nights are longer than day. It will trigger flowering. Whats your point?

When you harvest in december watch out for the pistils. They sting a lot when they are frozen. Trust me

Was that randy lacing it with blow or jacking off on the buds? I forget :confused:
He was lacing it with cocaine indeed. So then the mayor, when she found out freaked the f out. So than Randy fixed the problem by legalizing cocaine over the world. And he did. And that suddently made it ok to consume. Lmfao I was so fucking dead and confused

It was the ronavirus special where he was spurting huge semen ropes all over the buds then lol

I count days from 12/12, because I grow the same cuts multiple cycles, and I need to know how long it's gonna take from flip to harvest for each strain. That way I can grow strains together which have similar flowering times, and not have the tent only half full for a couple of weeks while I'm waiting for a longer strain to finish after the short finishing strain is done. Also it's a good way to anticipate when the plants in veg need to be ready to move into flower (by knowing when the strain in flower will be done). Sure, if you're growing different strains from seed all the time, it's somewhat pointless, but if you are trying to dial in your cycles with known strains, you want to know how long the 12/12 cycle will be.
