    hi there, was just wandering when i will start to see any buds forming. I have been on 12/12 for 3 days and can now see many pistils poking out of small sacks.
    Do these sacks open even more to reveal more pistils?
    And does the sack make the bud texture?

    If you are already seeing pistils then it will happen soon. The bud sites will develop all over the plant and the sacks open and open. It's pretty cool to watch this phase.

    You will see small but noticable bud by the end of the week

    Mr. shed dude,

    it usually takes 14 days of 12/12 for a plant to show "white hairs".

    3 days huh? That sounds a little out there. It usually take anywhere from 2-3 weeks for the plants to begin showing their sex. Some pictures would be helpful.

    I sexed them for three days prior to flowering and then put em back to 18/6. by the time i started to flower them there were already some pistils. Now theres loads of them and even some on the top bud. and i can now see litlle buds on it.!!! that sounds like a good plant hey?

    Hey grapefruit I'm flowering some grapefruit at the moment. How did you manage for height? I've topped (during veg') and bent (during flower) the stems profusely.

    Hi skunk, my plant is about 1.4 meters tall, i havn't struggled really with space as my plant is grown in a closet so there's plenty of room to grow... my stem at the bottom of the plant must be an inch to inch and a half thick so you can imagine this tree is massive, and smells like a tropical meadow!!!

    its not good to flower them and then return them to veg. This can cause complications such as stunt in growth. Peace man

    Sounds like you've done well. Did you grow from a clone? I'm only asking because to keep my plants so short I had to top and bend. My Mother plant has 20 heads and she's 3 1/2 foot after 6 weeks flower. I also started from feminised seed.
