what is bolting ?
 
dear ron,

i think i have a problem with my cabbage on hydroponics. after 5 weeks, it just grown by 3 nodes. i dont think its a very good progress.
somebody told me that i might be experiencing bolting. what is bolting ? how can i prevent it and what are the physical manifestation of bolting ?
btw, i am in Philippines where temperature runs above 32 C in the middle of the day. i keep the system cool down by placing it indoor with indoor lamps. i cool the roots with temperature control nutrient solution.

I haven't had good luck with taking cabbage to completion here in Florida. I think because of the heat.
Bolting is when a plant has run to seed prematurely. Probably cause by moving the plant back and forth from strong light then weak light. It's so freak out it doesn't know what to do.
Ron
