My growing experience is mainly with autoflowers and when it comes to breeders estimated flowering time for photo plants, when does it begin? If a breeder estimates 8 weeks, is that from 12/12 flip or from the appearance of flowers?

Hey there! The estimated week It it can vary from some breeders but most are going from the flip to 12/12. but that is with perfect conditions and how they like it being ripe. I tend to find that most are close within about 2 weeks unless you get a quick or long pheno of that strain. Plus the biggest factor in time is what your preference of Ripe is. Another thing some breeders do state that the time frame is from the first formation of flowers. Happy Growing!!

Thats the nice thing on photoperiods, you can do as you like it. I switch to 12/12 if iam ok with the shape with my Plant. That means if iam ready with topping and supercropping, when she is well prepared for flowering. if you dont want to do any training, you can flip anytime. some Big growing companies go with 3 branches and let them 4 weeks in vegetation. What are your plans=? LST/ Topping=? -Thats the nice thing you can try very much things, and you just can let her grow until you are statisfied with the Pants shape

Hi brother! to anwser your question, yes most photoperoid plants are not written in the catalogs like autoflowers are... in photoperoids its usally flowering time that is (shown/written) and in autoflowrers i am sure that its from seed to harvest weeks, BUT ! there is always a "but :joy:" if u want your buds to mature and be a bit bigger and stronger hitting, let them sit for another week or two everything depends on you! more time more power more weed!

Happy Growing :)
