changing light cycles during veg,,, will it produce a hermie?
    #208628 - 03/25/09 08:37 AM (7 years, 8 months ago)

a friend of mine has a cloned plant that he has on a full 24/7 light regime.  he intends to bring the plant over so i can veg it out, and clone it down.  since the plant is going to need to be discreetly covered prolly in a box for transportation, it will have to endure a short 30-45 min total dark period. 

here is my question, if after that short dark period, it is introduced back into 24/7 light immediately afterward, what are the odds that this could make the plant go hermie?  him and another friend insist that the plant will have to go on a 18/6 light schedule in order to prevent the plant from going hermie.  sounds like unwarranted paranoia to me, especially when they tell me i cant even transition the plant back into a 24/7 schedule, or even to transition the plant slowly into a schedule that fits when i will need to open the door etc. 

i understand that interrupting a light schedule can cause stress on the plant, and possibly lead to it going hermie, but this seems a bit ridiculous, and seems to defy logic IMO.

some clarification on this subject would be greatly appreciated.  tho i suspect that these guys don't know really anywhere near as much about growing as they think they do..

I would go with your logic on this one for sure. very very few plants would go hermie from such a short period of darkness. now if you started it flowering for a week or two and then switched back, or had the lights off at different intervals every day for a week, THAT would probably do it. However, a mere hour of darkness on a 24/7 light schedule won't affect the plant more than a simple rainstorm

yeah.. and to think, these 2 guys are the closest thing i have to real life grow mentors...  *shudder*  they may have gown more crops than i have,  and i'm no pro by any means, but im quite confident that common sense alone will allow me to produce larger yields of higher quality bud than they are used to. 

hopefully their pride wont stop them from acknowledging this when we take those first few tokes. :wink:

(hahaha i dont wanna come across as cocky, but im convinced that pretty much any noob with common sense could grow better weed than either of them.  so the odds are very much in my favor. :P :wink:

the plant wont even notice this.  think about in nature, there's cloudy days! and rainy days!

you're absolutely correct sir. My first harvest was at least as quality, if not more so, than the stuff I buy around here. And since I live in Colorado, you can be assured the stuff I buy is pretty damn good
