Default Preflowers

My plant is starting to grow preflowers. Is it time to shift into 12/12 light schedule?

Thanks for your advice. I started growing on april 20. She's about 1.5ft tall and clearly a female indica. I'm planning to harvest on august 20 (~16 weeks). I believe the presence of preflowers is a clear sign that she's about to enter blooming phase.

Peace

I would say more like the onset of puberty.
For a better crop, wait 'til a good root ball develops.
Another sign of readiness is that the phyllotaxy shifts to alternate.

Default all signs show maturity -- no sex

I have 3 plants. They are over 90 days old and still no sex. The forth one staminate is flowering and producing pollen. I' known sex for 2 weeks plus. This plant produced little branches at main stem nodes very early. They seem to show little growths that look staminate on these branches however they soon turn yellow/white and die. ??? I veg at 17hrs.

How long should it take until preflowers start to grow more calixes/bud sites? I'm one week into flowering and got a few preflowers but no budding clusters yet.

it is strain and plant dependent, but a week in is early for almost all strains IMO. What strains are you growing?

Fair enough. I have all summer to wait...

I'm growing probably something like m39 or kush but i don't know the origin of the seed.
