FLOWERING TO VEGETATIVE CYCLE

I placed a flowering plant outside in a great place with good sun in early May, way too early for Massachusetts' cold climate. She was looking great. But the plant went right from flowering very nicely straight back into vegetative state.

The plant returned to vegetative state because it was receiving too short a dark period to maintain flowering growth. As the days grew longer the plant responded by going back into vegetative. The plant was probably a sativa or sativa hybrid, which are most sensitive to light changes in late flowering.

There is nothing you can do now to get those buds to ripen now. You will have to wait until autumn, when the increasing darkness will reach a critical time period, once again forcing the plant to flower.

In the future when you place a plant outdoors make sure it receives no more than 12 or 13 hours of light per day, resulting in an uninterrupted dark period of 11 or 12 hours, which signals the plant to flower.
