Thanks Hoots, I'm amazed at the size of the leaves, I've put it on 12/12 yesterday, I understand why some people start these landrace on 12/12 :yinyang:

I don't recommend 12/12 in veg - if you want to get the best out of them, they need long hours in veg

if you want to restrict size, veg them in small pots on long light hours until they show sex, then flip to 12/12 and transfer them to larger pots for flowering in the second week of 12/12 - when the most intense stretching will be out of the way

Kumaonis are not from the tropics --- by going 12/12 in veg you are asking for problems, and you are unlikely to get the best out of them

Thanks i will take ur advice and put them back on 19/5, they only had 2 days ,so hopefully not too much damage.

Mine are about the same size though they vegged longer but are in *much* smaller pots than yours. I've flipped them to 12/12 about 10 days ago and they are showing sex already. I started them in 1 cup (250ml) home made pots from water bottles cut down and I don't plan on anything bigger as I'm looking to clip off a test sample when ready then immediately reveg them and find a keeper that way.

So far only one male but there are a few who haven't shown sex yet.

interestingly these strains are often sown and/or germinate quite early in the year --- I've seen them at this stage or later in early March in or around fields where they are grown in the Himalaya... when it's close to 12/12

in terms of broadness of the leaflets - that's not unusual for Himalayan (and Indian) varieties

@Lesley - is it just the one leaflet that is warped or is the soil is too rich?

@ namkha ,It's two leaves, but could well be the soil although it only all purpose compost, I didn't use the johnn innes for the landrace !
