    Default Strawberry Banana not flowering?

    Hi,
    I'm trying to force my Strawberry Banana plants (seeds made by Reserva Privada) to start flowering but it goes extremely slowly and lower leafs are drying too fast.
    Temperature is about 25-28 Celsius degrees, watered every second day with addition of some flowering nutrition (ready-to-use mix from growers shop). Light is set to 12/12 mode.
    No insects or fungus or any other natural problems.

    What can be wrong?

    PS. Trying to upload photos both as attachment and as new gallery. Still no results...

    You need 10 posts to upload a pic

    Bare in mind that it can take a couple of weeks for a plant to start to flower after switching top 12/12

    I have switched the light almost a month ago, and the flowers are not bigger than thumbnail.

    Ah! You mean it is flowering slowly rather than not flowering...

    Assuming 2 weeks for her to start flowering then things aren't so bad

    As m_c said plus try a flower bulker I use canna products and the pk13/14 although powerful it is very helpful in making bigger fruits when used in small doses. Has the grow gone nice other than that as I may try them in time cheers mate

    Sorry for the delay - it's growing in ordinary plant soil mixed with perlite (is it a word in english?) 7:3.
    And about nute mix - not much is written on the back. Only thing I've found is humus acid and fulvic acid - anyways should be 100% bio.

    i got strawberry banana cross going at the minute,
    tbh mate she doesn't bulk up till rather late on

    im almost at week 9 of 12-12 and she still has another couple of weeks flowering left easily
    but she is absolutely glistening with resin glands

    won't be a great yield but she is gonna be a real nice smoke
    that's exactly what im after
