When trying to aim for a finished flowering and a bountiful harvest, you want your plants to be ready when you need them, not before or after. As you get deeper into the growing process and refine your variables, you will begin to create a symbiotic rotation with your plants in which you can have a bit of control over the growing timeline.
The weed clone growth time differs across different strains and cultivars, like Sativa and Indica. At Big Daddy Clones, we strictly adhere to the timeline of a given cultivar or strain to get healthy plants.
When you grow from a seed, a cannabis growth cycle has 5 distinct stages: germination, seedling, vegetative, flowering, and harvest. When you grow your weed plant from a cutting and exclude harvest as a stage, it will have just 3 stages: clone, vegetative, flowering. Depending on its specific strain or cultivar, marijuana plants may finish flowering in 6 to 8 weeks or 8 to 16-plus weeks. For example, Green Poison – one of the fastest growing strains – takes 6 to 7 weeks to harvest. On the other hand, cannabis sativa may take more than 16 weeks to finish flowering and get ready for harvest.
Day 1: Take some plants of your favorite cannabis strain/cultivar that are about 12 inches tall. Take vegetative cuttings/clones from these plants. Grow these clones in soil or use hydroponics with balanced nutrients, and low them 14 days to root.
Day 14: On the 14th day, the weed clones would have rooted thoroughly. Now you can shift them to a vegetative area with 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness.
Day 21: On the 21st day of their growth cycle, your cannabis plants would have grown 6 to 8 inches tall. You need to clean them up and remove all the lower leaves.
Day 33: Twelve days later (on day 33), transfer these vegetative plants to the flowering zone, while maintaining the same 18/6-hour light cycle, i.e. 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness.
Day 35: Two days later (on 35th day), switch the lighting environment from 18/6 hours to 12/12 hours light cycle.
Day 45: To quicken harvest, you can turn the light cycle from 12/12 hours to 10 hours on and 14 hours off.
If you’re a marijuana enthusiast and want to get a successful harvest, it’s essential to understand the necessary steps and perform each step timely. This concise guide will address your key questions like clone selection, indoor vs. outdoor cannabis cultivation, essential tools, and optimal growing conditions. Just follow these steps to successfully grow healthy weed plants.
Remember, growing marijuana plants requires timely care and patience. You can maximize the potential of your plants by performing each step timely and providing optimal growth conditions.
Sativa often grows up to be lanky and tall with long, airy buds and internodal spacing. When it comes to growing indoors, they take quite a bit of time to finish the flowering process compared to Indica. More or less, you can expect to wait anywhere from 8 to 16 weeks for Sativa to finish flowering.
The process of symbiotic rotation is more challenging with Sativa. While you can make it happen, you have to skip the vegetative cycle. In doing so, your plants will likely not finish flowering for 12 weeks or more.
Indica and Indica hybrids are wonderful adaptations, meaning they adapt to symbiotic rotation in a near-flawless manner. If you’re starting from your clone, you can expect your plant to grow up to 10-12 inches in height. Of course, the end height will depend on the internodal length and the chosen genetics.Clones will likely take anywhere from 7 to 21 days to root, though, again, this depends on genetics and environmental conditions. When your plants reach the 12” mark, you can begin the flowering process.
