Any ideas as to how to get this plant to flower. I switched to a 12/12 lighting schedule and so far nothing. This plant is clearly not an auto as I am on week 11 and no signs of flowering.

Hey man when you flip the switch, it could take up to a week to turn up. Next time what you want to do is 24 or 48hrs of darkness before you go 12/12, that kicks starts the flowering quicker. Another you can do right now is switch to bloom nutes like you've been doing, but also add some molasses : 2 tablespoons in some warm water to dilute it then add that to the plain water for feed. the sugars and the carbs kinda kickstart flowering for the plant - the soil "uses it" and activates the bacteria that transfer nutes to the plant, and the plant actually uses carbohydrates during it's flower stretch. Those are the two things i would say you can do to get this baby to flower. hope this helps bro ! :rocket:

Hello ! You did the right thing by switching to 12/12 , your plant must be a photoperiodic ! It happens sometimes whrn crossing a photoperiodic to a ruderalis that the auto genes get lost in translation. My second solution would be to increase your bloom nutrients but you already done that. Now if your plant isn't an auto you can wait up to 2 weeks after the 12/12 switch to see a change in the shape and the 1st signs of flowering. When did you switch to 12/12 ? I can read on your infos that you are still in a 20/4 schedule :thinking_face:. Hello ! You did the right thing by switching to 12/12 , your plant must be a photoperiodic !

Howdy there @Cylenknight! Its pretty obvious your plant was not an Autoflowering like advertised however what might not be so obvious is WHY it wasn't autoflowering like advertised. Autoflowering aka day-neutral genetics are classified as "homozygous recessive". Homozygous meaning that both the Alleles in its genetic code are matching (think like xx,yy ) AND they are Recessive meaning they are less likely to be displayed vs other dominant traits when bred. Because of this its Very hard to get these Recessive 'day-neutral' genetics to be isolated and consistent! The Vast majority of All Autoflowers are not "True breeding" (pure bred) meaning they contain traces of Photoperiod Alleles inside their genetics and unfortunately for us photoperiod genetics are primarily Dominant meaning they are MORE likely to be displayed in their offspring when bred. Hope this brings some insight as to why you needed to Turn your lights to 12/12 to induce flowering! Damn Genetics are hard stuff :sweat_smile:

Hi @cylentknight! Sorry to hear this, shit happens, even with the best breeders. If you already did switch to 12/12, then make sure you don't have any light leak in your grow room: a simple strip with an on/off luminous button can disrupt the cycle of a photoperiodic strain. I can see signs of pre-flowers on your pictures, so she's a female, she will flower at some point. The good news is that you're going to have a monster once it will bloom! My guess is that you just switched to 12/12, you need to wait a few more days, at least a week, for the pistils to appear. Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:
