ping a light on the plant at all times. These plants will grow to a
certain height and then form into a bush. It will then eventually stop
producing branches and will spend the rest of its life growing new
leaves to replace the old ones.
- Bud production is not equal to the height of your plant. Bud
production is equal to your growing environment, your strain's genetic
make-up and the amount of nodes that the plant has. All nodes are
potential bud areas, but every strain has a genetic threshold for bud
- It is possible to get more bud with lots of plants which are flowered
as soon as they are mature (which also keeps them shorter and
smaller), than extending vegetative growth with less plants until they
reach their maximum height and size. The time frame for the shorter
option may also produce more bud turnover per annum.

Keeping these things in mind, you can either choose to flower
now or choose to keep your plant growing until it reaches its size
threshold before you start flowering. If you take the longer route then
prepare to have the space for it, because when you flower most
cannabis strains they can sometimes more than double in height and
If you have pre-flowers and want to flower you only have to
do one thing. You must put your plants under a 12/12 schedule.

THE ALL-IMPORTANT 12/12!
Most people never get good results or bud quantities from
cannabis plants because they have never heard of 12/12.
12/12 is easy to explain. Cannabis plants grow outdoors
naturally between the months of April to October/November. This
means that towards the Sept/Oct/Nov dates the plants will be in
flowering. During this time the days get shorter and the nights get
longer. When this occurs the plant is under 12 hours of light and 12
hours of darkness. When this 12/12 PHOTOPERIOD occurs the plant
is naturally stimulated to flower. If the 12/12 continues then the plant
will produce its flowers. As long as 12/12 continues the flowers will
grow larger and more plentiful. This is part of the cannabis plants
evolution and how it has taught itself when to flower. Naturally as a
grower we want lots of flowers so we need to put the plant through a
light cycle of 12/12. This means that we must turn our lights on and
off at these given ratios.
During pre-flowering you will either manually turn on your
lights for 12 hours and turn off your light for 12 hours everyday or you
will use an automatic timer. If your light comes with a timer set the
timer to do this. Throughout the 12 hours of darkness it is best to keep
your grow area as dark a possible. A small desk light at the other side
of your room will cause your plant not to react properly to 12/12 which
will result in continued vegetative growth. In fact any light that
penetrates the darkness will stop your plants from flowerin
