is there something you have to do to get your plants to start flowering
Put your lighting cycle into 12/12 (12 hours on 12hours dark.)
also, read one of the growing guides here on the forum like this one:
how old do the plants have to be before i can do that
From what I've read, it's purely up to you when you go into flowering.. If you want a bigger plant, flower later on in the plants life, when it's gotten fairly big from veg. If you want a smaller plant, flower earlier on in the plants life.
most growers wait till the plant is 4-5 weeks old,or 3-4 feet tall.
Best to wait until a week or so after you start to see alternating nodes. Before that you could force flowering prematurely but probably will see lower yield.
Waiting a bit makes all the difference, patience has its virtue...
^ on that note if a plant hasn't shown alternating nodes by the feet & weeks I suggested ,then there a major problem.
