    good rule rule of thumb is when they get a foot tall or 12 inches it all really depends on how much bud you want the bigger they get the more potenial they have to produce bigger buds but at about a foot you should get a a ounce or two depending on the growing condtions/skill

    You pick when the time is right to flower your plants. There is not a certain or specific height when flowering should be begun and by flowering before or after that time will be detrimental to the plants.

    Plants will double to triple in height during flower so all that is important is that you veg them long enough to where you can achieve maximum yield without vegging them for so long that you run out of growing height or out grow your lighting.

    The hormone that is released in plants by the change of light cycle length is always present in the plants so you can put them into flower any time you want. It is just a case of knowing when is the proper time for you to do it and only you can decide that for yourself based on your situation/conditions.

    there is alot of variables to consider for when is the best time,such as,how many plants,how big the growing area is and so forth.most plants will atleast double in height once flowering is induced.one of the most common tho is to start flowering once the little clones reach 12-18 inches tall.seeds on the other hand should not be flowered until atleast 2 months of age,again this is all dependant on many variables but is a good general guidline.. :)

    420 forever!

    yes it starts with the hight your area is to the light's, say your 5ft from the top of your pot to yuor lightthen you would wnt to veg tell your plant is about 18" to 22" tall this well give you the growth in hight during flower. good luck
