    this one seed i started right before winter was like frozen till march then it popped up and it's just really small and it started budding and some one told me to stick it in the dark for it to bud faster is that true?

    if so ill get like an eighth off of it and roll it up:joint::hump:

    for the flowering period to start you gotta move your light cycles to 12/12 meaning 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness and that will force your plant to flower/bud

Any ideas?

    Try giving them a 36hrs dark period. Meaning YES switch your light off completely for 36hrs then switch it back on to 12/12 you will see a noticable difference in your flowers. Keep fans etc running as you still want good air-flow apart from that follow these directions and you'll be laughing.

    With such a long veg period the first question pops to my mind is...... is there any chance the plant is rootbound? If it is the case might slow down the flower initiation . But if it is definitely showing as a female and your NOT root bound, I would just leave it alone. Less stress at this time is the best. Check to make sure that after such a long veg your pot size has been adequate for that length of veg........

    Almost forgot are you sure you dont have any light leaks during the lights off cycle??? This can screw up the flowering process and can at times produce some male flowers.

    8 months and it's only 27 inches tall? Yeah, something is wrong. You really SUCK at growing.
