    Nice!
    Remember flowering begins when your girls show sex, Not when lights go on 12/12... Some plants smell less than others... And it takes about 5 weeks to start... I grew some excellent smoke that almost didn't smell...

    Looking great! I keep thinking of growing some skunk myself but then, I think about the smell ... I grow a strain that has virtually none. The thought of having six-footers smelling like that in the garden is a bit offputting. Nice plants you have there.

    Thanks Leafminer,

    they would get that large outside and the smell would have all the neighbors over

    It's all I can do to keep these ladies under controll

    Hey Andy, as always you my friend are probably correct.
    its been 4 weeks at 12/12 it took 7 day's to show sex
    so my thinking is at least 5 more weeks
    how big do you think the buds will get
    and do you have any advice
    Thanks Andy

    Your ladies look a little heat stressed. What's your temp? Also- that foil is going to create hot spots.
    My guess would be you got 6 to 8 weeks to go.
    Good luck!

    Thanks for the help, It had rained here and the humidity in the room with a little heat made the girls frown for a day other than that back on track
    I would prefure 5 weeks but wats a couple more when its good smoke.
    Thanks BBFan

    Flowering starts when you flip to 12/12. Many strains show sex while still in veg. The change in lighting signals the start of the flowering cycle and you should count from then. Your plants look wonderful--lush and bushy. Sometimes the breeders estimates on flowering time can be a bit low. The trichs will tell you when they are ready.

    Those are some nice healthy looking plants but I dont really see much bud on it. After a month at 12/12 the buds should be much bigger than that, especially in that small area under an hps. My suggestion would be to hit it with a healthy dose of flower nutes. It seems to be lacking a little bit. I use the Fox Farm too and I like it a lot.

    Keep us all updated with pics. I want to see those ladies at week 9 or 10.

    I'll have to disagree with the goddess...
    I flipped on 12/12 after 4 weeks in veg, than it took another 4 for my plants to show sex... :hubba:
    Some people grow on 12/12 from seed...
    The trichs will tell you though... :D Even pistils will...
    You will know when she's ready :rolleyes:
