I am in my first indoor grow.
4’x4’x6’ grow tent. 9 plants in 3 gallon pots.
2x 1200watt greengo LEDs.
Current stage: Veg stage 18/6.
All started from seeds.
I have been looking all over for the answer to this question… Is a light change to 12/12 needed to begin the pre-flower stage?
The results say after 4 weeks of veg the pre-flower stage begins… Should sex the plants… Remove males then on to flowering stage. The articles I find fail to say if the pre-flower is automatically started during the veg stage after 4 weeks or if the switch to 12/12 is necessary.
Further more some say you should not switch to 12/12 until the plant shows pre-flower to reduce chance of herms.
I am confused and could truly use some advice/guidance.
Thank you so much… I wanted to make sure… It is amazing how quickly my plants grew in a week with all conditions controlled… My LEDs are doing great. Didn’t want to miss the sexing of them and had always thought the light change was necessary.
Now I know what to look for…for my other question… When to start the 12/12? When the preflowers show that the plants are sexually mature.
