How many hours of sun light are you getting each day? Even 14 hours and not 12 can send some into flower. Peace, Blue

I spoke to the people that i got the clones from this morning, they told me the clones were under 24 hr a day light and that they think the plant went into bud because of the shorter daylight hrs. they also told me that they will go back into veg in a couple of weeks.. i told them that if i had known that before i would not have bought them

How many hours of sun light are you getting each day? Even 14 hours and not 12 can send some into flower.

Blue, i dont know how many hours they get per day. all i can tell you is that the sun comes up sometime around 6 in the morning and it doesnt go down until after 8 or so at night

should i pull them and start over with something else

It sounds like they are only getting about 14 hours of light right now. I would let them go and has the day light hours increase they should go back to veg. Peace, Blue

You've discovered one of the little foibles of our favorite weed. When I'm doing an outdoor grow I plant seeds when the 6 inch soil temp reaches 65 degrees or cheat a bit and plant when the corn farmers do but as you've found out clones are a little trickier. Hemp is light dependent in flowering, when you plant seed it will grow to a certain maturity then if the dark cycle is long enough (12 hours or more) the plant will begin flowering. With clones it changes a bit since the clones were taken from a mature plant. Usually I would transplant sometime in the first two weeks of June which since the longest day of the year is June 21st the plant has a chance to root in before the nights hours get long enough to start flowering. In any kind of growing outdoors timing is everything.
