After a little under a week of flowering cycle on my first grow I of course assume that it will never initiate flowering cycle and I totally messed up and I've wasted all this time. I get back from work today and it was impossible to deny some small hairs in the main coda that simply weren't there before. It's starting to look less like a new leaf site and more like a bud site. It was then that I realized all of the new, or at least bigger, codas that had been popping up lately and I realized that's where the other buds would grow. Wow its exciting to see my effort actually take SHAPE for the first time instead of it just being some random looking pain in the ass highly illegal plant that I have to take care of.
I figured out today that with the five weeks I spent in veg and the presumed 7 it will take to flower, I could start a new seedling three weeks before harvest on the other plant and just grow it out of the grow box for its first three weeks when it will still be a relatively small plant. Shaving those three weeks off of my 12 week seed in soil to harvest I could be seeing a new crop every 9 weeks. Considering I have a little under an eighth/week habit, even if I only get an ounce (which I would still be totally happy with) per harvest, that means that this one plant will mean I pretty much won't have to buy weed again. Worth it to me.
