    Hey Guys,
    I am a very new member and long time reader. I am currently starting my 2nd outdoor grow from four Mr. Nice clones. I got them nice and early, and because spring warms up early in my climate I began putting the plants outside a week ago (march 18. Now my 12'' plants are going into full flower. Is there any way to get them back into veg to grow for the rest of the year? Or will they try to bud through spring? Ive read that most plants' flowering cycles cannot be interrupted once they get going. Is this true?
    Any help would be very very appreciated.

    get them inside under lights for 18-24hrs and give veg nutes they will reveg in about 2-3 weeks. its still to early to put out right now..they are flowering because the day isnt long enough and they are getting to much dark time.

    Ok thank you so much. I thought that they were surely doomed.

    I'm using all organic nutrients and I usually mix my own dry ingredients. Would a good dose of feather meal (12-0-0) be good to push them into veg? or should I use something with a wider range of nutrients?

    i think a good dose of nitrogen would do them some good......

    that happened to me this year,it stopped growin in size and started makin hairs and callyxs everywhere,in 10-14 day or so it started veggin back out again and carried on as normal,altough it looks like its going to finish earlier than this strain normally does,it also began budding (the second time)bout 2-3 weeks before any of my mates,and some of them hav the same strain off the same mother,its weird but i aint complaining

    Any one know what the causes are for early flowering (August harvest), besides strain? Can stress early in the plants life cause it to try to flower earlier in the year? Or is it just an individual genetic thing?

    If you are growing in the uk don't worry it is because of the light levels lucky if we get 13 hours of light.don't go chopping away at the buds the light levels will start to get lighter at the end of this month just keep feeding a veg feed and the plants will go back into flowering mode.with the light levels been so low the plant think it is time to flower you have done the right thing i always get them in nice and early this gives the plants months to veg so you end up with a huge plant in veg then later on the plants go into flower you will end up with a monster plant.should yeiled at least a pound if it does'nt i will be very supprised.just keep and eye on them if it is a proper gurilla grow than visit once a week and add a good drink for them.

    your probably right ive noticed a heap of shit like this happening,last year here was shit harvest for every one,heaps of bud rot from winter showing up too early, maybe it is something to do with the sun changing because we would notice if the earth had tilted to change the seasons,im sure the suns got weaker in some wavelengths and not others because the sun seems harsher burnier,yet here the magic mushroom season is getting longer,you would think it would make it shorter,5 years or more back you could only get them in a 2 month window march-april,now days they neva come in march rarely in april but once they come ive seen them go all the way through to november thats a 7-8 month window when it used to be only 2-3,i find this all highly disturbing btw, it will be interesting to see if wallyvelly's plant is budding early to pre-empt an early onset of winter,it seems to be coming early here,im half expecting the first frost any day when it normally comes mid-end of may:?
