In contrast, I have never had a plant grow a large robust set of leaves and then fail to produce a head. So I figure that promoting a good leaf growth, descending energy, is a good idea for a healthy plant that runs its full life cycle before ultimately heading up. Additionally, we dont really want the broccoli or cauli to flower. We just want it to head up as big as it can without actually opening flowers. So it is more of a vegetative (leaf/root) quality we are looking for, not a reproductive one (flower/fruit). At this point in my experience, I would rather plant on a root day than a flower day for that reason, with leaf days being my ultimate preference.
