2nd pic is my current Mango now in week 5 of flower. Light timing is 10:30/13:30. You can see that the lower leaves are all fat and Indica looking as they were made in Veg under 18/6 (was before I started playing with Gaslight veg) (which I love by the way) and all the new leaves are skinny Sat looking leaves
crazy. I do 10:30/13:30 right now too and I also have a Durban that goes amber in like week 5 or 6 (and finishes in 10), i think you were the one who mentioned the same thing about Durban earlier in the thread? It does it to other African landraces as well, . . . . the trichs start going amber halfway through, while the rest are clear, the cloudiness doesn't even set in until around 13 - 14 wks, then they finish around 16wks with mostly cloudy and a bunch of amber. the high still completely cerebral. never seen anything like it with other genetics. not sure how big a role the photoperiod plays.
the whole reason for 10:30 daylength for me was emulating South Africa's daylength because that's a majority of the genetics i grow right now, I want them to feel at home.
it's about 10:30 visible light hours during what would be their harvest season. i start at 11/13 and go down to 10:30 in 1 minute increments each day for the first 30 days of flower.
