I’ve been growing Cinderella 99 for a while, had no problems until this grow. It’s been in flower mode for over 160 days now, and still only showing signs of pre-flower white hairs with others browning. Barely any calyxes, no real bud development. Every time I defoliate the green leaves covering bud sites (at Grobo support’s suggestion), it doesn’t seem to mature the bud sites and the plant appears to just regrow leaves. They even switched to a 14-10 dark/light cycle to jumpstart the flowering. That was over a month ago with no success.
Grobo support said my plant would be ready to cut down in two weeks but I think they are WAY off on that suggestion. There aren’t any flowers to harvest. I know these are feminized seeds and I’ve grown the same strain from seeds of the same pack, with no problems.
Does anyone know if I should suck it up and start over or do you think it will eventually flower and actually give me something? I’ve burned through almost 3 sets of nutrients, and nearly 9 months on this plant. I’m very frustrated. I have a small fan in the unit to help with air circulation and only keep it there during the day time. I used white electrical tape on the top of the unit to prevent light leaks. I only use a little hydroguard for every fill-up, which I did on my last grow and nothing bad happened.
