    So I got a sweet clone of Sour D from a good friend of mine who grows. When I got the clone it was already about 2 ft tall. I put it outside in early April.(Which I later found out was 2 early) Its been outside for about 3 1/2 weeks and its flowering. I have it on a balcony with a light, so ive been trying 2 turn on the light when the sun goes down to try and get it back into veg. Will this work? Its not a light for growing just a cieling kind of light.

    Someone please help.

    Doesn't seems to work for me. I first put them under a flood light after sunset. Then I even built a grow box and put them under 20/4 over 2 weeks and no progress as far as growing any new leaves.

    Those clones average 5 inches, but I just tried some DJ blueberry and it's potent. I also currently have a Master Kush ultra flowing at around 3 inches. So April or even May is not the right time for clones.

    OK Thanks

    So if I just leave it be without giving it light after sunset it will go back into veg? What is the right time to put clones outside? Anyone?

    Depends on how big you want your ladies to get before they finish. Do a little research on the strain you have if you can, sometimes breeders can give you an idea of finish time and you can work backwards off that. Assuming that the breeder can give you a valid flowering time. So if it finishes late october, and flowers for 9 weeks, it should start flowering around mid August. So, if you put a plant outside in April, and allow it to veg for 4 months of summer sun, be ready for some monsters by late October.

    I'm sure you could get away with a solid month of veg (if it's clones, 2 months for a seedling) and get a sizeable little yeild outdoors. So theoretically, you could go outside as late as the end of June and still achieve a mature crop.

    All the dates are hypothetical for explanation sake, so I hope the principle comes across. It's up to you when they go out, keep in mind 6 months of worrying about critters and varmints and bugs is a long time. Less time outside, less exposure:thumbsup: Not to mention theives.

    I'm gonna go blaze:jointsmile:

    OK. New question guys.

    So I have now stoped giving the clone light after sunset. Its May 8th and should now be enough light to put it back into veg state. The clone has been showing flowering for about 3 to 4 weeks! So my question is how long will it take till I can see that it is reverting back to veg? And what are the signs. Any help would be great. Thnks:thumbsup:

    Blame it on the weather. Seems like weather all over is going nuts this year. Major earthquakes, flash floods from rain, Tornados and hurricane season starting late. Hell today is Mother's Day and at 530 this morning I had snow on the ground, just a trace but it was snow. I know not everyone has the room but if you do and tired of dealing with weather bout only choice is move inside. :wtf:

    well if your plant was on light for 24 hours a day and then you put it outside an tricked the plant because you changed the time it was getting light. id say if its not too big put it back inside under a light for 18 hours for about 1 week the following week switch to 16 hours then put it back outside she should end up pretty nice.

    Will this set up work? Have 3 floresent lights on her. Gonna try giving her 18 hours of light for 1 week and then 16 for a week. ? Or do you think I should just leave her outside and let nature do its thing. Anybody?:thumbsup:

    premature flowering

    yo yo cottonmouth and others,
    this year I wanted my plants super big so I put out clones in early April also, as all of you have noticed they began flowering. my clones I put out between 6inches and 12inches.. Now im in the central Valley of Cali, and have noticed in the last couple days it seems the flowers are dying off. to me this is a good sign that the are turning back to vegetative growth. Also the plants seem to be growing taller as oppose to flowering. These are the two signs I have noticed of reverting, now the question for me is, like other members of the flowering plant familys should I debud the current flowers to promote new growth or should we just let the flowers die off as I assume they will.

    observation is the key to understanding.

    from ASK ED

    Marijuana plants respond in a predictable manner to changes in the lighting regimen. Given 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness each day, the plants change from vegetative growth to flowering. Inversely, plants which have been under the flowering regimen of 12 hours of uninterrupted darkness each evening, can be forced back into vegetative cycle using continuous lighting.

    To force plants from flowering to vegetative growth, cycled light is replaced by continuous lighting. When the ripe buds are pruned from the plant, some vegetation, the lower portion of the bud, is saved. New growth will emerge from this vegetation within a few weeks of forcing.

    The plants can be any size, but they must retain some leaf matter to regenerate.
    end of ED

    this is dirty now,
    so if the sun in the sky is increasing are plants will turn back to veg.

    removing flowers

    I have read on a few posts that if you prune off the top of the buds that you are going to be pruning off the most potent part of the plant and the plant will never reach that potential again.

    I am just letting the flowers gradually die off and naturally turn back to veg. so far so good will post some pics tomorrow.

    patience is a virtue, trust in the son.

    How many hours of light does she get outside? If you get more than 12 she can go out. You are going to have fun with her because she is going to be BIG. Is she going in dirt or pots?
