6 weeks and no sign of pistils... is my Dwarf only slow? Or is something wrong with her?
Are the growth tips / bud sites look normal?
Is the Dwarf a Lady at all?

This lady is 100% showing you her preflower genitalia :wink: ITS A GIRL! To answer your question about the late flowering, She IS about to start flowering as those preflower pistils above the stipules indicate! So there is no need to worry shes going into flowering right now. To answer your question about WHY she was late - she just simply wasn't ready for flowering yet, it happens with some autos time to time. It happened in my current grow as well - One Blackberry plant took an extra week to flower. THIS IS CONSIDERED a good thing with autos typically meaning a larger plant and therefore large yields! No worries just continue the show like normal and you will be fine :sunglasses:

Hey there wolf I'm sure the lack of budsites showing is frustrating and this is just a possible thought...maybe give her the additional week if you want to see if she will start flowering. But you could also try reducing some of the light hours to help initiate flowering. I only say this as I've read of people occasionally having different seeds than they expect...if by some odd coincidence she wasnt a true auto for some reason, a lowering of light would tell fairly quickly.
All the best, happy growing. :v:

Hi @StonedWolf! I can see signs of female pre-flowers, don't worry she's a girl! Now about your long vegetative stage, consider yourself lucky, the more veg time autos can get, the higher yield in the end! So keep up the good care and enjoy growing this monster! :facepunch:

Autoflowering strains begin flowering once the 5th pair of leaves fully open, it's probably lack of suficient light, I use 63 watts of LED to veg and it is fine for my 2 sq ft, but you want between 25 to 30 watts of LED per sq ft for proper growth rate in veg and 40 watt per sq ft for flower.You have 4.3 sq ft and 67 watts for veg, thats 15 watts per sq ft, you need more light for that space, twice as much for veg.

Hello ! Yes it is normal , on the 3rd picture I can see the 1st pistils so it is a sign of pre flowering and it mean that your plant will get bigger during the next 2 week or less ( the stretch : she can take x2 her actual height ) so in 2 weeks or less she'll be in full flowering. Wait and you'll get what you'r waiting for :v::skin-tone-3:

hey man, she's not fully showing sex yet but she's looking like a lady as it is, but maybe that's wishful thinking on my part ! basically she's not slow she's a plant that's just not getting enough light. There are only two nutrients on this earth : sun and water, in soil your plant only needs light and water, but basically the light is a tiny bit weak so she's lacking the energy to really bust out ! she"s already showing pre flowers so she will start to flower next week for sure. You can do the math 9 weeks reccomended 4 weeks veg, 6 weeks actual veg so 7-8 weeks flowering before the end 6+8 14 weeks total expected with that light. You want bigger and quicker buds then get a bigger light. You're gonna have to be patient bro, make sure you maintain that lamp to plant distance, she ll be stretching the next 3 to 4 weeks, you'll want to be checking up on her daily! hope this helps ! :rocket:
