    Hey everyone I have grown many time's But have never grown a sog grow and need some advice How long do I veg for ? I want my plants between 12" to 18" when done, I have about 70 clones vegging since 10-17 I have northern light, medi bud, jack herer and super silver haze. I'm growing in a 8x8x6 custom made tent with maylar using haight solid state ppf-800's this is my second grow with these lights first one came out really good but had to cut it short which really sucked !!!! I am used to growing under 4 1000w hps in a much larger space and always grew my plants 4' to 5' so this is new for me any advice would be helpful also I have plenty of ppf-800's bought 15 sold some off because didn't need that many once I seen how they work so I still have 8.I've also have already started some bubblegum, thc bomb and white rhino. so really need some advice. I have 11 plants now 6 weeks into flower and 4 weeks into flower only using 2 ppf-800's for flower heres some pics. Thanks !!!~!!

    rule of thumb is, your plant will pretty much double in size once placed into flower

    If you flip now you're blooms will all be about a foot tall. Wait longer and the end result will be longer. Okee dokee? There's a certain amount of stretch that happens at about the time you flip. But you can always lst or super crop to fit your height constraints.

    Edit: I read yesterday, mb it was professor marijuana, who takes his cuttings and gives them like 72hrs of dark then flips em to 12/12. He gets some beautiful product. Look it up in the newbie section.

    45-60days for roots. Git going too fast u will see your yield drop alot. if u need them a certain heighth cut the tops off a lil while before you place them in bud. U might want to look into Bushmaster if u don't want them bigger then a 1' 1/2'.

    Great point! This should tell u about all u need to know... For plants to only ever reach 12-16" tall, I'd say they'd have to be on 12/12 from seedling, but I never grow this way, nor suggest it... An adept grower usually lets their plants have at least a month of veg time, if not more, to develop a decent root system, like myself, and they likely use pruning techniques to control height and shape, and when they do decide to flower, they know the 25-50% increase in size, as once plants r put in flowering, they continue to veg and this is the "stretch" we talk about, and for people using a trellis system, no matter what type, they will train each branch to grow into and/or thru the individual squares of the mesh, if itz a ScrOG or SOG setup... SO, if a bigger harvest is what u r looking for, I would totally suggest letting them veg out before flowering, and use the above described methods, and if certain branches still persist on getting "too tall", then I would just tie them down gently on the trellis, and let them become more of what they want to be... And thatz my 2 cents...
