Early flower.. wondering what to do

Hello all! I live in southern Ontario Canada and the June weather was pretty cold (days around 16-18 Celsius and nights as low as 12 Celsius). I put two plants outside for the season to enjoy the sun and the weather must have made one start to flower… the past week or so the weather has warmed up a lot and the days have gotten longer and I was hoping to see it re veg a little bit but I’m starting to think it is going to stay in flower… should I keep waiting it out or start to apply my bloom boosters? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello fellow farmer welcome;) if I had to guess I’d say that you have a autoflowering plant there.i live in Nova Scotia where it’s been cold as well I have never seen a photo period flower this early in the season where did u get her ? Was it a seed?

Thank you!! This is by far the most welcoming forum I have been a member of. I should have at least six weeks of sun light over twelve hours so I’m hoping she grows a little more… This is one of two plants I put outdoors for the first time this year now that it is legal! Any input on things I can do to help the girl along would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again!

She’s a Dinfem Purple Orange CBD plant. I love their genetics especially because I’m big on higher cbd content and a more mild thc content… I have another Purple Orange cbd growing indoors which is veging normally and they were in the same container… I guess mistakes could happen during packaging… I really hope not!

the purple orange cbd is on the right and came in the same little container as my outdoor one.

Hello and welcome to the Growers Network @davesnothere!

Outdoors can trigger flowering earlier than indoors because at sunset you get more far red. So if it was close to 12 hours of darkness when you started her outdoors, this could be the reason, even if by your eyes she was getting a long light period.

If it is indeed not a autoflower and the days are getting longer, leave her out there and she will eventually reveg. You will likely get a “monster cropped plant” and will get a lot of new tops growing out where heavy bud sites seem to have started.

happy growing,

I suppose that’s the same properties that gives a quick change over to flower if you use lots of blue for veg and hold off on the red till a week before flower and hit them w as much red with a 10% blue spec as possible (without wasting light)

Welcome to the forum. I had thought the same for one of mine. It seemed to take a long time before it looked like it was back in veg mode again. Yours may just be similar.

Thanks for the welcome! Your advice makes a lot of sense, our sunsets have been very red this summer.

Conversely, short-day plants may be induced to flower by a single flash with pure FR light at the very beginning of the dark photoperiod, after turning off all other lights. This effectively adds a couple of hours to the dark period for the purpose of flowering, which can be used to extend the light period for growth and optimize plant yields as a result.

I am running between a 72 and 86 average right now. I hit close to 90 for a couple hours and then the temps drop. I am indoors.

I live in Southern Ontario and photos start to flower from Aug 7 to Aug 15 with a Aug 21 date for being able to sex… I would say you are growing autos like @hoppiefrog says… and Biddy Early and Early skunk has flowered July 25ish on me… why they finish early…
