Started preflowering this week. Pretty sure I'm getting greater than 14 hours of light per day. It's a long Summer before light gets below that, like end of July - beginning of August. Will they hold off on flowering until then or does this mean they are going to flower early?

Hey there they wont flower early because they dont have enough time to fall asleep to get their minimum dark hours for flowering, it takes them a while to switch off that's why, so you're all good to go ! hope this helps ! :rocket:

Ed Rosenthal says a few strains depending on their genetics and heritage, flower under less of 12h of no lights, so if you search for this heritage and find out that their relatives had a shorter no-lights requiriments for flowering, then I would say she will flower under less of 12h and then you can see if she will flower with only 10h of no-lights as you have now.

Looking pretty good! As long as it is a photoperiod the plant will not switch to flowering unless it receives an uninterrupted 12 hours of darkness. The plant produces a hormone which is responsible to triggering flowering. This hormone is destroyed upon exposure to light, so when you are running a 18/6 or more light schedule, the hormone doesn't have enough time to build up. When you switch to 12/12 then the hormone will build up and the switch to flowering occurs. Flowering isn't determined by the amount of light, but by the amount of darkness the plant receives.

From you picture I cannot tell how you determine they are pre-flowering. Are you not confusing maybe with the pistil from the plants sex? You are growing photoperiods I'm pretty positive they would not go into flowering at this time a year if you live anywhere in America or EU.

I cant see any sign of flowering but they can be under stress and start flowering early.. maybe you are overwatering them. Do you check the ph of water? And next time use black pots. Roots dont like light. Light can penatrate throught pot walls and green algae start grow along the wall-thats not good. So use black foil. I used foil from empty soil bag and wrap it with it. But bottom most stay clear for water come out.
