This 13 hour cycle will not keep my plants from flowering in the Start. I have been pushing past 6 weeks, at first intentionally but also after just extending the current grow unexpectedly for a week.
Anyone else experience this?
I tried taking a strip light from inside my Grobo and sticking it on the outside, then placed the Start next to it. That added a couple hours on to the 13, but it still flowered. I’m thinking maybe some kind of clip-on grow light where I can get it up to 18-20 hours of light might work.
this is what I did daily to keep a START grow in vegetative stage for quite a long time…
usually wake up @ 7 am, drink a cup of joe, and plug in my START and set for 13 hrs (blue light)
eat dinner @ 7 pm, unplug and the replug my START and set for 8 hrs (green light)
try for 20 hours a day but at times go over or sometimes go under
not much of a hassle once incorporated into a daily routine
i do recommend transferring any START seedling to your permanent grow medium in the 1st week of so of seeing life…i do not recommend doing this it turned out great but the container was too small for when she got bigger…she would drink the container dry in just a couple of days and refilling constantly become a hassle
