When should I switch my indoor grow to flowering? What are the main indicators that she is ready? This is my first grow any tips/hints would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
You want to consider your growing space when determining when to flip. Plants will at least double in height when they transition to flower
Rule of thumb I use is when the canopy covers 50% of the grow space I flip but others factors can come into play like plant or tent height the plants will double in size so you want to make you will have the space
I agree with @AfgVet (Hi Vetty BTW!!!)
You can still do some training in full flowering but it should minimal.
My tent is about 5 feet tall, my plant is already about 2’ tall in a 5 gallon bucket. So it sits almost 3 feet tall. Should I prune it down or switch to flowering? Sounds like it’s gonna get tight…
You can do some training to her to help with the height. Search LST for some ideas on tiring her down
Yep if no lsrt id flip yesterday and hope she dont grow into lights. Jeep it blasting to keep her low as possible for a bit keep the nodes tight. Or snap her neck and wait a few days for recoop and flip
A picture would help
What do you mean when you say train her? Like train the branches to grow out instead of up? I appreciate all the help and tips so far. You guys are great!
You should be good but you need to flip to flower if you haven’t already. I top mine for bout 2 and a half months then flip.
Yes, you can do Low Stress Training (LST) by gently bending your tall branches over and securing them to the edge of you pot.
Awesome thanks for the info! Should I top my plant as well?
I don’t do a flip as I run 12/12 start to finish. But if I was doing a flip, I would wait till the plant was about 1 1/2 feet tall.
I wouldn’t top it at this point. Usually want to top when they are younger. You plant will not have enough time to benefit from the topping
See if you can go higher on the branch and bend it over more. Just be careful. You’ve got the idea of it though
Okay, thanks a ton!
So most of the branches are doing great with the lst, but one(the largest) started to tear! Just a little so I unhooked it and left it be. Seems to be fine but not sure if there is anything I can do to help it recover. As always I appreciate the advice!
@MrJ2021 You can use aloe vera and tape. Like first aid tape that stretches. It will heal up if you give it time.
