When does the vegetative stage actually start I know it cant be as soon as the seed pops out the ground... So what I want to know is when is the seedling stage done and the veg stage starts?
I take it from the first true leaves...almost as soon as they've popped really. Some people take it from when it starts throwing nodes at alternate intervals.
I remember asking the same question.
Yes, what sworth said. i asked the same question and the pole was after the first few sets of true leaves develope. that way it developing a root system by then
I consider the first week the seedling stage and week two the beginning of the veg stage. By week three I slowly introduce nutrients and by the forth week they are on a normal diet and mature enough to go outside.
I was thinking veg was when the second or third set of leaves come out
