Flowering in 18hrs of light...
    #634009 - 08/06/12 10:35 AM (4 years, 4 months ago)

So, I have a friend who is from the east coast, and he's given me a whole lot of things to think about with my grow. He used to grow outdoors back in North Carolina, and he's got a decent amount of good information...

One thing he's told me I am having a bit of trouble believing though... he tells me that the indoor growers he used to know would put their plants into flower for a couple weeks, and once the girls are in full bloom, they dial up the lights back to 18 hours a day. He says they claimed the girls would keep flowering just fine, and you can make a small emergency space in there for your vegging plants.

Has anyone here ever heard of this tactic? If its true, it could be very useful to me, since I don't have an HID light for the veg room anymore...

Yeah, no.

You don't need HID for vegging anyway.

Could have possibly been working with autos?

Actually, I do need an HID to veg with. Otherwise my veg room won't keep up with the flower room.

Please don't try to assume you know my set-up better than I do. Its just as bad as someone popping into my thread and saying "Oh, you'll yeild twice that with LED's!" I don't give a fuck what your OPINION is. I'm asking for factual evidence that pertains to my specific scenario. If you don't have anything. Worthwhile to add, please GTFO my thread.

Nope, I had that same thought... he said these guys would keep their mother in the flower room because after about 3-4 weeks, they could bump it up to 18hrs and it would keep flowering, but if. They. Switched the lights too soon, it would revert back to veg...

It doesn't sound to healthy for the plants to me.
Can't say I've ever heard of such either.
Maybe Magash will way in on this.
I'm curious too.

It's bullshit.  This will stress the shit out of your plants, and throw them back into veg.
