Okay guys... This is my one and only first ever baby girl plant.

It's 10 weeks old and heavily trained.
I've been using FFOF and perlite.

This plant has been on 24/0 light it's entire life.
It was switched from ~125watts of CFL to 250w HPS about 4 days ago... It went in my box
I also repotted from a 1 gal pot to a 2 gal. 4 days ago.

A week ago I was gone for 3 days and I came back to my plant almost dead... It was thirsty, hungry and had ants crawling all over it...

I'm confident it will be okay and I understand exactly how to make her shine again, and she will.

BUT, she looks like she's fucking flowering... and it's tripping me out.  I Really can't decide if I should flip her yet or not, and it's generally stressin me out trying to figure out what the fuck's up with my plant.  An old grow buddy of mine thinks it's definitely budding, thinks that's weird, and blames the 24/0 cause he's old school, but doesn't have any other answers.


        So, is it flowering?  Should I flip 12/12 now?  Should I wait until she recovers from my neglect?

You know, I can't even gauge stretch or anything cause it could already be budding... If I knew it was going to double in size, I'd probably switch now.  If it tripled in size I'd be happy... But is it gonna?  Need your help guys, Thanks

Almost forgot pics.... I'll be brief

Well, what's the deal with that?

  Any comments on the 24/0 schedule or if I should or even need to flip it?

Flip to 12/12 if you want it to fully flower. Its just showing its sex to you.

Its going to stretch when you flower it yes. But also I would let her heal up a little before putting it into flowering. It wont hurt it any. Is it an autoflowering strain?

It's bagseed... Quite unknown origins.  I had a male which was autoflowering in the batch, but he's done flowered and been long gone for about 2 weeks now.

That's really what I wanted to hear by the way, if I should let her heal up and whatnot first... I will definitely do that.... She's looking pretty good now though I could cut off alot of bad leaf and she'd look great again..

Anyway thanks bud

That does not just look like it's showing sex, for some reason or another it started to flower.  It could be an auto flowering strain, but no way to know for sure. 


In an ideal world you would want to make it heal up.  But in my opinion if the plant is wanting to flower, don't fight it.  That would just cause more stress and a higher chance of it throwing out some male bananas.

Yeah, I took it into normal light this evening for the first time in about 5 days since putting her in my cab.

Trimmed off some garbage, first watering in the new pot with 1/4 strength Fox Farms Big Bloom... 

It's starting to develop trichomes and odor...
I think I'm gonna flip as soon as the first 'off' time should be this evening...

Do guys who grow autoflower strains turn their lights ever? hmmm

I've been curious about this too.  Because if it is a true auto-flowering strain it seems like it wouldn't need a 12/12 cycle.  Maybe it would be able to produce more bud going 24 hours in that case eh??


But in your case I would switch it over to 12/12 since you don't know for sure that's why it went into flowering.

LOL yeah thats what I was wondering. I'm thinking it would'nt fuck up your plant though. Not 100% on that though.

Ha that's far from just showing it's sex to you.  If it's already kicked into flowering you don't want to stop it and try to veg even if it isn't an AF but it seems like it is.  I would put it on 12/12 just to be sure.

Helluva plant to have to deal with for a first grow...

Hope it gets a bit taller, and here's to hoping it doesn't hermie out or something too.

Do you guys know of any stress which induces flowering?

I looked it up and it looks like the hardcore AF guys do go with 24/0 until about a week after flowering and then only flip to 20/4...  Which is weird, but kind makes sense, but also seems like it could be anecdotal/trivial... Just thought I'd throw that out there

I run my AF at 18/6 for its whole life and works perfectly fine.  You can run it 24/0, but I doubt the benefit to yield at that level equals power consumption, if it did, 24/0 would be godmode among the AF growers.  If it is AF strain, which it most likely is, you should flower at minimum 18/6 to take advantage of it and avoid 12/12, there is no reason to do 12/12.

What if it's only got a touch of AF? It started to flower at about 7 or 8 weeks, which if I recall isn't common at all for AFs. 

I already went 12/12 too... think there's any going back?  I'm actually enjoying the stretch though right now... my plant was a little too dense.

Also what are the chances it tried to flower out of stress?  This just doesn't happen does it?

Here's a pic from a day or two ago:

If it was me I'd just stick to 12/12 for safety's sake. I think it is probably the result of a cross between AF and regular flowering plants. You might be able to get away with longer hours but since you don't know much about the genetics I wouldn't stray too far past 13 hours of day.
