I have a few little girls growing here in CA. We have been having some really wierd weather including hight winds. I can see amazing amounts of pollen comming off the pines. ALL my girls have been pollinated by PINE TREE POLLEN...and have began to bud!!
Has anybody heard of this and if so is it possible to stop the budding and get my plants to continue growing??? They are only 10 inches tall and I would love to save them
Thanks a ton to all who might be able to shed some light on this.
uhh... welcome to the growery dude. Im in CA too. Im in Oakland screw this weather man it is bad for my outdoor veg garden.
First of all, you have your shit all wrong. Sorry.
Here is what is happening from my understanding of what you said: The pine pollen has had little or no effect on your plants. The cold weather and lack of sunlight has induced flowering (budding) in your plants (your plant thinks that it is late summer/fall). Your plants are likely in a place that does not get a whole lot of sunlight in the first place which also contributes to the flowering early. Solution: do nothing. I think that when the climate warms up a little bit your plants will stop budding and revert back into vegging (growing bigger). Or they will not revert and will keep budding in which case you will have some bud in about 8-12 weeks.
SmOakland got it exactly right. It is absolutely 100% impossible for pine pollen to impregnate your plants. Secondly, becoming pollinated doesn't induce flowering, flowering starts and THEN they become pollinated after they have flowers to receive the pollen with. Just wait it out and they will stop budding soon
