So these are seeds from my outdoor grow, every year there are 10-20 seeds from each plant. Started them indoors a month ago under 14/10 led and they are flipping, a male and a female. Could it have been pollen from somebody’s auto in the neighborhood? Totally confused, thought 14/10 would keep them from flipping when they go outside in another month but something’s gone wrong.

Many plants will start flowering if you get to close to 12/12. 14/10 is late fall light cycle where I am, healthy time is 16/8 I use 18/6 for veg 16/8 for seedlings 12/12 flower. I’ve seen plants flower from 14hr outdoor.

I’ve always run 18/6 and a couple usually flip or reveg after transplanting outdoors in May so this year i tried 14/10 figuring that matched May sun, whodathunkit would flip sooner, right after uppotting from solo cups.

14/10 is kinda close to 12/12. I run 18/6 and sometimes 24hr veg cycles. To my knowledge, the presence of pollen shouldn't trigger flowering. Second pic is a boy

Yup and the third pic is the female. One thought i had is somebody’s autoflower pollen got to my plants last summer, outdoor grows popping up all over Massachusetts now. Guess my best option is bump the light to 15/10.
