Flowering Time:

Flowering time means the time the plant/buds need to get fully ripe (harvesting time) and we measure this time from when the clock is turned on 12/12 cycle.

Plants from different countries and areas can have different flowering times. These are put into groups like : Indica / Sativa / Hybrid / ruduralis. All these types of plants have different flowering periods and are mentioned in their seeds’ feature.

An indica type of plant has a shorter flowering period (from around the 7-9 weeks) while sativas can have flowering periods from 10-13 weeks or more. The hybrid is a combination from those plants with flowering times that will be inbetween – so around the 10 weeks time frame.

The grow period of seedlings is always at least 3-4 weeks. This grow period they will take and it doesn’t matter if the clock is on 18/6 or 12/12. The 12/12 from start method is a good method but we advise to use hybrids or sativas to be sure you get the space nicely filled. With indica type of plants we advise to put in more plants on a m2, for example 16-24 plants on a m2.

The grow period is also dependent upon the type of plants, even as the amount of plants on a m2. A sativa dominant plant needs a shorter grow period than an indica type of plant. For example a grow room from 1m2 filled with 9 sativas would need almost no grow period to fill the space while an indica type of plant needs 3-4 weeks of vegetative growth to fill up the same space before you can switch the clock to 12/12. This is why it’s better to use more indica type of plants on a m2. In this way the sativas don’t have to take so much longer in total as an indica plant.

The important things to remember are:

Sativa plants grow for another 3-5 weeks (20-40 days) after placing them on 12/12 lighting, while indicas grow for 2-3 weeks (15-25 days) after the placing them on 12/12 lighting. This is useful info to predict your own vegetation and flowering period with a filled grow room
