Thanks Guy, this is helpful info.@Deep goat
I almost forgot. Only #2 showed pre flowers. Number 1 took a week or two too show me. That's if my memory serves me right. Lots of beta testing between then and now
I'll shorten my "daylight" hours even further (I've been at 16 hours since the beginning) and put a couple of red bulbs in my 6 x 4ft. T5 array to try to inspire pre-flowering a little more; even going as far as temporarily using 12 hours. I've gotten (male) pre-flowering on two other strains under current conditions so far. My goal is to ID and lose all the dudes, and turn the ladies into mums to take clones from.

Re: curing. I had a Nepalese Highland cross that was rather lackluster shortly after harvest, but, wow!, what a difference after a two to three month cure.
For the positive, of course.
take care, and best o' luck with those girls.
