What Causes a plant to go into full bloom with 18 hours of light per day?

Very frustrating because the two other plants under the same light are not going into bloom yet, as expected. This is not supposed to be an auto-flowering strain...Grower's Choice Seeds' Cinderella 99...She's beautiful but EARLY! What should I do? Go to 12/12? Now?

Thanks for your insights.

Is it possible it’s just preflowering?

She's in full bloom, just like a normal 12/12 plant should look after a week or two...getting full!
Thanks for your input.

That's what I said to my wife...Ruderalis in the ole woodshed somewhere in the lineage. But that wasn't mentioned in the breeding info. Good idea, Pinnate!

The only difficulty is that cloning flowers (if it's a keeper?) has a lower success rate than non-flowers!


Having said that, most of my clones are already in flower when they go in...

Yikes.
You got me there... I hear sometimes small pots can force them to flower...
sounds impossible to clone.
Best of luck

Some plants will throw preflower from root stress.

Clones can easily be cut up to week 4, just don't expect to do anything with them for a few monthes.

some plants, when areas of the plant are shaded from the light (like when over grown in veg) those "shaded areas" will start to flower while the rest isn't flowering. I've only really seen this with males. once they are cut back (no shade) they return to normal veg growth.

Don't know if this is similar to your issue.

I would say a stray bit of pollen from an auto created the seed you planted.
OR
There was a mixup of seeds.
OR
Somewhere in the lineage of the seeds created, the autoflower gene exists.
OR
The gene controlling the number of dark hours required for flowering is expressing itself rather differently. I have some which will stay in veg, as long as they only get about 2hrs of dark. More than 4hrs of dark and flowering is triggered.


Just a few thoughts.
