    My flowering light schedule has been wrong.. ideas on what I should do

    So just finished 6th week of flowering and I was a little concerned with the slow progress.
    checked my timer and the schedule has been 13hrs on 11 off....
    should I change it to 12-12 or go to 11 on 13 off for the remainder of the grow?
    thanks

    I would just change it to 12/12 unless you are in a rush. 13 hours of dark might stimulate the buds to finish slightly quicker but they will be slightly smaller due to less light.

      12/12 would be less of an adjustment in the short time they have left.

          KW, Admittedly I have NO science, experience or knowledge in this realm, so with that being said, If you are not in a hurry, I dont think staying at 13/11 will cause any issues, just take a little longer. They love light..haha, however if under time constraints, could drop to 12/12, maybe even 12.5/11.5 for a few days then 12/12 as that would mimic nature a little more and minimize stress (if that could even be a stresser?). I look forward to others answers on this as well..

              Leave it at 13/11 or go to 12/12, little difference and no harm.

                I'm wondering what everyone thinks about this: if it's week 6 and Keewee is seeing too slow flower development, would a light change make a difference?

                Keewee101 I would sure like to see a picture of the plant; that would help a lot.

                  If he's seeing slow bud development it won't be because of an hour difference in added or less light. Something else is going on.

                when plants are outside they go into bloom when the sunlight reaches 14 hours that being said as long as they have gone into bloom(growing buds)you'll be fine
                When plants are in Veg there is a lot of change to them that we can see. when they go into bloom it takes forever for them to change enough to show to us on a daily bases .
                Buds will continue to grow slow until the end of there life then they explode to try and get polinated
