    Can anyone tell me the height a plant will get at the end of the vegetative stage? I'm asking because my plan is to repot into 15 litre pots from 1 litre pots at end of vegetative stage. Am I completely insane or quite perceptive.

    It can be anywhere between 6" to 10'+. If you are indoors then I would start the flower cycle 12-18". You can decide how tall you want it after flowering and when its half that size quit veging and start flowering.

    Hi SKUNK!! : )

    I agree with WIDOW.. 90% of the time you want to start flowering (12/12 light cycle) when your plants are 10-20 inches tall.

    taking a few deep breaths and running around the block waving at your neighbors is a wonderful thing

    I think that your question has been answered well. The main thing to understand is that YOU control how tall she will get. With experience you know when to prune, and when to induce flowering so that the end plant will be what you want.

    In simpler terms, if you want a plant that is 60 inches tall, then veg until about 20-25 inches. If you want a plant that is 40 inches tall, then veg until about 15-20 inches. Also, a seed plant will triple in height during the first 3 weeks of flowering, and a clone will at least double.

    One problem I see is your transplanting idea. I would transplant during veg, allowing at least 1 week after transplant before switching to flowering. Transplanting can be a shock to the plant, and it's best to do it, as well as pruning/topping, before flowering.

    If you look closely in one of the pictures, you can just make out a fan blowing directly between lights and plants. It's quite a large fan and it's on it's highest setting, any lower and the temp of the room goes up. Anyway, the stems are thickening up nicely. I know you guys have never heard of cheese, but we're getting 20 cuttings. Will all the cuttings take? Probably not, but how many could I expect to take?

    The title of the pic you can see the fan in is Jack The Ripper.

    HEY SKUNK...

    You should be able to get all 20 cuttings to root! Cloning is easy.. It may take 3 - 20 days depending on your technique and cuttings.

    I highly recommend wilt spray.. the stuff is amazing!!!

    love love love

    cheers knowm, luckily the geezer giving them to us has volunteered to veg' them for us till we are ready to start flowering our own. He was impressed with our set-up, being 1st timers and all that, and he came over all generous. He's an 'old hand' at cultivating. Of course I gave a mention to you guys, without your help we'd be f****d.

    How much light do you have? If they're 6ft tall and your light only reaches 3ft down the plant there's no point in 6ft plants.
