Hello everyone I am thinking about forcing my plants to flower now. They have been vegging under a 400 watt hps for 2 1/2 weeks now. The light cycle has been 20 hours on 4 off. They are all approximately 17 inches tall. I was told by the man who sold me the clones that they are called "the dutches". Does anyone have any advice for me? I would wait longer in the veg cycle If I know its necessary. I was reading that you can force flowering anywhere between 12" and 12'. I don't want to damage my crop by forcing flowering to early PLEASE HELP!

If they're clones they're almost undoubtably sexually mature, so go ahead on.
Maybe it's just the quality of the pic, but the plants seem to be suffering horribly from nutrient overdose/imbalance.
If I were you, I throughly flush them, then continue feeding veg nutes at a lighter dose than before through the first 3 weeks of 12/12.
Then flush them again and start flowering nutes.
2 weeks before harvest, flush a 3rd time and for the last 2 weeks feed nothing but water with 2 oz. pineapple juice per gal/water added.
What is the purpose of the pineapple juice? Will it give the bud a citrusy flavor?
i think it is just the quality of the pic. There really not that yellow
