Hey everyone. Can someone please tell me when the seedling stage ends and what signifies the start of veg stage?

It's all the same really. I guess, technically it's when the first true leaves show, but even a seedling is "vegging".

What does it matter?

Thanks guys. I was just curious because i see some people refer to their plants as being in the seedling stage and it looks like they are in the veg stage. Just wanted to make sure i was on the right page as everyone else.

I suppose you could catagorise it by - using nutes or not.
I wouldn't use nutes in the seedling stage but it's ok in the veg stage.
In that case Veg stage would be a few weeks into the plants life, whenever it's safe to start on nutes.

A good indicator of when to start (light) feeding is that the cotyledon (baby) leaves will shrivel, which means that the growing plant is sucking nutrients out of them.

I always wondered why the bottom leaves dried up and died. Thanks.

In fact, the proper vegatative state begins roughly around the time the plant has grown 4 developed nodes and has started the 5th. So up until this time, the plant should be exposed to 24/7 light and a very light seedling feeding schedule.

Treating a seedling as if it is fully formed vegatating plant just because it has developed the first fan-leaf will not yeild any postive results.
