When do you start counting the flower period?

Is it when you switch to 12/12? Or when flowers start to appear? Reason I’m asking is because Advanced Nutes suggest giving bud ignitor for the first two weeks of flower, as I am in week two (ends next Sunday) then this is when I should stop giving it BI…?

I always start counting flower when there is very noticeable flowering going on.

I start counting when I see the white pistols. I also start feeding with the BI at that time and for 3 weeks. I am skipping the big bud as my plants don’t seem to like that. Then if I have a plant that should flower in say, 8 weeks. I start the Over Drive at week 6. I am in coco and don’t do a flush. So that should be taken in consideration.

Flowering is a soon as you start the flowering process (12/12, 11/13 light schedule). That same day hormones distribute around the plant and start the flowering process.

We had this same debate in the lab. I have some personal contact with the “king of cannabis” so I shot him a quick text and this was his response to me.

Hope this helps
