Early flower buds on Orange Minsk..is something wrong?
I planted three Orange Minsk seedling in it's final pot on December 12th or 13th (can't remember for sure) and while the plants have grown quite well in the past almost two weeks, they have gotten flower buds already.
The first plant got the flower buds a couple of days ago, the other two I noticed buds on them yesterday. Last year when I tried to grow Orange Minsk the same thing happened. I was advised to pinch off the buds so the plant can concentrate on growing--the only thing is last year I started the OM by seed way too late and by the time the plant grew and flowered again it was too hot and all flowers dropped.
I am just wondering if there is something wrong and that is why it is trying to flower early, or is it normal for some plants to do so?
Here it is one of them on December 14th (I transplanted it to this pot on the the day before or possibly the day before that)
Here it is yesterday:
and here are it's early flower buds:
