  1. If you’re growing Critical feminized seeds and they’re not producing any buds, it can be a little disheartening. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to help get your Critical plants flowering.

    Before we get into how to encourage your plants to start flowering, it’s important to figure out what could be causing the issue. It could be anything from genetics, timing, or environmental conditions.

    First, let’s look at the genetics of your Critical plant. It’s possible that the feminized Critical seeds may not be true to type, meaning they’re not growing according to their genetic make-up. Additionally, if the feminized seeds were produced from a hermaphroditic plant (a plant that produces both male and female flowers) then it’s very unlikely that your plants will flower. In this case, it’s best to start over with fresh and properly feminized seeds.

    The next possible cause could be timing. Growing cannabis is all about timing, from germination to flowering. If you transitioned your Critical plant from the vegetative to flowering stage too early or too late, this can result in your plants not flowering. Generally, cannabis plants need 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness per day to transition and begin flowering. Make sure you’re following the correct timing for the stage of growth your Critical plant is in.

    Finally, let’s look at the environmental conditions. Your Critical plant needs access to the right temperature, humidity, light, water and nutrients to encourage flowering. Make sure the temperature ranges between 70-77 degrees Fahrenheit, the humidity should stay around 40-50%, provide plenty of quality light, and make sure to water your Critical plants regularly. Additionally, it’s important to keep your plants well nourished with quality nutrients to ensure healthy growth.

    Now that we’ve touched on the possible causes of why your Critical plants aren’t flowering, here are a few tips to encourage your Critical plants to start flowering.

    Start by making sure your Critical plants have access to plenty of quality light. Outdoor plants should be getting at least 8 hours of direct sunlight per day, while indoor plants require artificial, full-spectrum light.

    Next, you want to make sure that your Critical plants are well hydrated and getting the right nutrients, like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Keep in mind that your plants will need more water and nutrients during the flowering stage than the vegetative stage.

    It’s also important to keep stress to a minimum. Too much or too little stress can cause your plants to enter into a state of shock, and delay flowering. Make sure to check your plants regularly to minimize any issues early on.

    Finally, consider adjusting the light cycle of your Critical plants from 18/6 to 12/12. The 12/12 light cycle (12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness) is known to help encourage flowering and is often the recommended light cycle when entering the flowering stage.

    In conclusion, although you may be frustrated that your Critical plants aren’t flowering, there are a few things you can do to encourage flowering. Make sure that the genetics of your Critical feminized seeds are true to type, they are being provided with the right light and temperature and that they are adequately hydrated and nourished. Additionally, adjust the light cycle to 12/12 to further encourage flowering. Following the tips provided will help get your Critical plants flowering in no time!
