    My friend is growing some plants outside and are about 2 months old now, the strains are 5 white rhino from nirvana and 3 of the free thai super skunk. 3 of the white rhino are fem. the rest are still unkown.

    Well the website says ready to harvest on the 10th month with an 8 week flower period.. well if my calculations are correct.. flowering should be starting any time now in order to give it an 8 week flower period until october comes around.

    Can someone help me out here? because we want to clone the plants before they start budding..:hug:

    It doesn't matter when you planted it, it's going to flower when the lighting is correct.

    umm.. im asking around what time will outdoor lighting be short enough to trigger bloom. i know it doesn't matter when i planted it, just for your own info.

    Im expecting flowering to begin early august.. but i read somewhere that outdoor light becomes 12/12 in around september 23. so this got me a bit confused, for a while i thought my plants would have 2 more months of veg.. but that doesent fit with the 8 week flower time so it could be ready by october.:?

    the problem with that is, september 23 is when sunrise sunset is a 12 hour difference.. that is why i was confused in the 1st place.. I then took into account that plants don't know about sunrise and sunset. they go by how much light is available to keep them "awake".. sorry i forgot the word lol..:joint: idk im really new at this. .

    I know, it's weird. Sep 25 it turns 12/12. Indoors you do 12/12 because it's not in its natural eneironment, so we give it "extra" of everything to make up for it. Also because it trigers a faster start to flowering.
    They will actually start flowering at around 14 1/2 hrs outside. They should be done sep 25th if you have a 45 or 50 day flowering plant.

    I guess, when comparing sunset/rise times, it should be more of an eleven hours difference, since there's practically no light in the first half an hour of a sunrise and the last half an hour of a sunset. That would land you in August, like people said.

    Northern hemisphere is a big area. There is quite a difference in day lengths between Mexico and, let's say, Buffalo.

    I'm in N.E. Ohio and all of mine are budding right now. my avatar is a blueberry which was taken early last week and has quarter size buds as well as my white widow, afghani mazar, g-13 haze, power skunk, #1 skunk, blz bud, and thia skunk. so to answer your question, I guess it depends on where you're at. mine budded early this year and no, they are no autoflowers. been cool this summer and had rained alot earlier this month, so.......
