Do I flip the lights to bloom as soon as I see the first calyx with pistil(s)

  1. I just bought the greengo 1200w led grow light from Amazon. It has about 250 watts on it. It also has a bloom and veg switch on it. My problem is that I'm not exactly sure when is the precise moment I switch it to bloom. Do I switch it to bloom as soon as I see calyxes with pistils out?

  7. No run both from a sprout till you cut.
    There is nothing you do to stimulate flowering mode so 20/4 gives the plant a minute to rest and develop rooting.
    With that low power LED you want as much as you can get

  8. I get the sense that you want to flip the lights.
    At this time, you’re growing the wrong kind of plant for that.
    Just run your auto at 20/4, or 18/6, or 24/0 (?) the entire time.

  9. With autos you do not turn the lighting back to 12/12. I get the best yields at 24/0 start to finish with autos

  10. I agree........I personally don't put my autos under a 12/12........and see best results under 24/0
     
  11. I have the exact same setup as the OP.. is this legit ? because I always only use veg light till I see pistills too.. can anyone confirm that this will not kill new sprouts/seedlings ?
     
  12. yep..........

  13. meaning it will kill them or meaning that it won't.. sorry I'm not exactly sober.
     
  14. Lmao, he isn’t asking when to flip 12/12. He is asking when he should flip his led from veg to bloom. Smh

  20. Listen, run veg and bloom lights from start to finish on a 20/4 light schedule.
    That plant needs all it can get from that little light.
