Its cloudy 60% of the day in bogota on avg. So it must be peak sun hours....so overcast would still kind of be considered part of the dark period wouldn't it? Kind of like when a plant gets too tall and the apex grows above the lights. Ive seen them flower in only that part of the plant....lol the rest was in veg..funny. so overcast shouldnt be counted as daylight hours when comparing and outdoor grow situation to indoors. I would say start at 11 on and get to 8.5 or less by the end of the flowering cycle...ill bet dimming the lights from hour 6.5 to 8.5 would show better results. Then shutting them off as usual at the 11 to 8.5 hours per day...

So say your lights on 11 hours in the begining of the flower cycle. Maybe start dimming after 7.5 hours till 11 is reached then lights out. Gradually decreasing these numbers as flowering proceeds...just an idea.

When growing outdoors I think you are suppose to count sunrise and sunset as daylight hours.

just have patience. Are you gonna breed the clone or smoke it?
I'm collecting pollen now. I'll decide in the next week or so whether I pollinate the little one. The big one is already making seeds. Should be ready in about 3 weeks. The Saucyball females are pollinated by the Colombian male and will also be done in 3 weeks. So I will have both Colombian Saucyball and Saucy Colombian.

Don't know the Thc content of either parent. Just know the genetics are about as different as it gets. Hoping to get some true highbrid vigor.
I think the Colombians have canabinods that haven't even been discovered and isolated yet. Idk why else the oil from the leaf is so potent and oil from indica leaf is.not. just my theory...
