Changing light cycle from 12hrs >16hrs..producing seeds?
    #743186 - 08/07/14 03:04 PM (2 years, 3 months ago)

Here is a question that I was asked.

Lets say someone had been growing indoor (inside a single room) for the past 3 months and a mother plant was successfully flower and pollinated.
The plant is about 3 or 4 weeks into growing the seeds, however they are not yet fully mature and brown (seeds).

Plants were grown/ flowered under a HPS (1KW) in soil. Light cycle 12 hrs.

The guy growing is now looking at starting a number of new plants from seed (old stock) to begin his new growing season.

The question he asked me is:

Can the light cycle be changed back to 16 hours in the room without causing the mature plants to stop working on finishing the seeds already near the end stage? :confused:

The mature plants probably still have about 2 weeks more to go.

I do know that if you are flowering a plant 12/12 and switch the light cycle to a longer period of hours on ex. 18/6 that the plant will eventually with time go back into vegetative state.  With seeds, I would figure the same thing would happen.  I wouldn't suggest changing the light cycle once the plant has started to produce.

Exactly.  Tell him to wait until the seeds are done, or make a veg room.
