Flowering Cannabis before preflowers
    #6044335 - 09/09/06 03:43 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Well, ive been vegging my plants for too long, i want to keep them a bit smaller then what ive been seeing. So, i wanted to know what everyone's opinion was on flowering your plants before preflowers show. What height do you prefer? I have a cabinet with 7ft in height, but i want to only use about 5 to give my plants a break from the heat. My current grow got a bit fucked because the plants stretched like elastic in a short time.

My next question is when should i start flowering my clones? I have a bunch right now that are about 4-5 inches tall and im trying to get a cycle going where im harvesting a few plants every month. Im hoping to harvest a qp a month with about 4-5 plants per grow.

i really am glad you came back to us instead of taking the other path. *hug*

I am doing the exact same thing.  I just built another cabinet, so i now have 3.
One will be deticated to vegging, and a place for the cloning.
The other two are for flowering, but staggered 4 weeks apart.

I have not yet completed one of my cycles, but my plan is:
Have a plant with preflowers showing (two hairs) take 2 clones, wait a week, and introduce it to the flowering room.  The only reason for waiting the week, is to let the plant recover.

If both clones survived, kill the weakest one, and veg the other.  I plan on vegging this clone for 4 weeks, and Low Stress Training the hell out of it.  At about 3 weeks, take your two clones, wait a week, and fire up the other flowering cabinet.

Keep one clone and veg for 4 weeks LSTing.  By this time your first harvest should be done. Just harvest, and add your LST'ed plant.

Since I'm vegging for ever, and it would not really be benifical for me to veg for a shorter time period, I'm pretty sure one plant per cabinet will be plenty.

I'm using T5's to veg, and i have only 1 250WHPS atm.  I esitemate I yeilded about 2.5oz off of this light, and I'm SURE I could have done better.


----------
I'm also semi-confused how you could be vegging for so long, but not seeing any preflowers? :confused:  Are you talking about from seed?  You can't flower any faster than they will show preflowers.
Every clone Ive seen (only of the female variety, albeit) showed sex, so I think you have to be talking about from seed.

I like to flower my clones 2 weeks after showing roots. Usually they are 3-4 inches tall when I put them in the flowering room. They only grow to about a foot tall when they are done and I harvest around 1/4 ounce off each plant. I flower about 10 at a time so I can harvest around 2.5 ounces every 10 weeks.



Sometimes after taking cuttings I'll flower out a mother so that I have some bushes growing along with the cuttings. I just set them on crates behind the hydro table. The shorter they are when you force them the shorter they will be at maturity. I've had sativa strains that grew two feet before they even began to show flowers.


So to answer your question, I like to start flowering my plants when they are nice and short to prevent a lot of stretching. It sounds like you've got a lot of headspace to work with so you could probably grow some really tall and bushy plants in there. I just like to keep them small so I don't have so much trimming and manicuring to do.

Well i went and LST'ed all plants that were able last night. I was able to sex the chronic plants i have going and removed three males and kept two females. Im looking to harvest a bit more then 1/4 oz per clone so i guess i have to wait a bit longer then you. I'll probably end up flowering when they hit a ft in height and go from there. Hopefully this LST will help a bunch with the height problems and secondary problems ive been having. My mother plant has been LST'ed and it looks fantastic (so good in fact that im tempted to flower it).

I want to throw in one of the chronic plants i have but my problem with it is its all stem, there is hardly any secondary growth at all. Out of all those plants the crappiest looking ones ended up being female (go figure).
