How early can u start flowering?
I was wondering could u start the flowering process with a plant say, 6 in. or even shorter?
you can if they are cuttings taken from a sexually mature mother plant, but if you are talkin a 6 in seedling, sure u can start the 12-12 but it will not be flowering until they're sexually mature. you can grow a plant in 12-12 from seed, but its not flowering until its ready.
hope that helps
clones = yes
seedlings = not until sexually mature.

I can remember reading that the plant is only ready to mature at 12 inches and over.
Can someone back me up on that one?
Well generally speaking after 12 inches theyre ready. But the earlier you force flower them the smaller your yield will be. Like someone mentioned above you can start from 12/12 but your outcome wont be that great unless you have a load of plants at once.
agreed. grow a mother then take clones and flower. thats what i have done. i flowered at 6-8" if you wanna check out my end result i'll be harvesting in a week to a week and a half.
its in the sig....
good looking peeps. the info you guys gave me sounds like it makes some sense. this is my first grow i have six plants growing half are some kind of light green sativa and the other half are some kind of indica. Don't know what strain, i got them from a Canadian breeder. i've always been an extremely fast learner and it seems the same with cultivating herb. With the info u guys gave me i think i'm going to keep a mother from each and clone each, but, i will also attempt to cross breed indica/sativa and on the flip side sativa/indica.
okay pothead, i'd like to see those results. Could u post them in this thread whenever u get them and what strain are u growing?
I did 2 flowers from seed,,,,,2 weeks in I transferred back to my veg and they showed sex.....2 for 2 females.....I dont know whether placing them in flower room first got me the 100% female rate, but i'm gonna try this again and see what happens.....
Everything I say is a lie. Pics are from the net......
That's a cool observation- how did they do back in veg?

Generally you shouldn't force flowering until you see preflowers. That is when a plant becomes sexually mature and is usually about 12-16" or 4-5 nodes. If you don't know how to identify them look through RIU....you'll find the answer. If you go to 12/12 before that you'll get a huge amount of stretch and your yield will be smaller. HOWEVER....if you take cuttings off a sexually mature Mom the cuttings will be mature too and you can go to 12/12 almost immediately.
This is what happens when you start from seed and wait until they're mature. Even though these are Indica they're still too big.
