    Hi All
    Hoping someone can help! I've got 8 White Widows that were on there 8th week of flowering and were doing really well with two lights, one a 600w HPS and the other 6U 150w CFL bulb ... now the bad bit!! :cry: Been away on holiday for 1 week and the timer has stuck on the 6U bulb for the whole week, so when I returned the plants have gone back to a Veg state and new shoots have sprouted from the already formed buds!! Before I went away they proberbly had about 3 weeks to go before crop but I honestly don't know what to do now because the new shoots are now covering the formed buds.
    I've attached some photos but are not very good due to the HPS light.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Cheers!! :mrgreen:

    Ouch, I imagine that will throw back your harvest a bit. But I don't see any reason not to go back to 12/12 and restart the flowering process. They look beautiful btw.

    Hi

    Thanks for the respones, I have already put them back to 12/12 but should I trim off all the new shoots so the light can get to the top cola's?
    And how long now till I should crop? 95% of the pistils are still pure white! I'm looking on about another 3 weeks? What ya think!!

    Cheers Guys!!

    p.s. these babies have been better fed and looked after than my kids!! LOL
    46 quid on one bottle of Canna Bloom!! so i'm hoping this cockup won't effect the THC level much when it comes to crop!! :confused:

    3 weeks at min. You have to watch the plant , they will tell you when she is ready .. Good luck with them

    I wouldn't do any trimming, it'll stress your plants more than they are already. Maybe some side lighting for better canopy penetration.

    Switch them back but don't trim anything,they should pick up just fine.Agree with AlphaNoN on the side lighting that would be very helpful.
