How Long with Darkness

  1. How long do you have to have complete darkness?? Can you turn on a light to check them?? When do you put the plant in complete darkness?
     
  2. I do a complete VEG stage at solid 24/7 lighting for the 1st 6 weeks. Then I pop the plants in to a 12/12 lighting..Within 7 to 10 days your females will get white pistol hairs at the nodes..I run the lights at night to keep all the heat down for at least 8 weeks..Hope this helps ya..

    I can't answer that..I have never went to all darkness..No need from what I grow..My budz are tight an very awesome..Stay cool!
     
  5. Have you went from 18/6 to 12/12 yet? Remember that they can't have any light at all during the 12 dark hrs so if you really need to check on them make sure that the light is as dim as moonlight.
     
  6. How long do you have to have complete darkness??

    Until the flowers are ripe for harvest..

    Can you turn on a light to check them??

    No...check them before light goes out,,,"uninterupted total darkness".

    When do you put the plant in complete darkness?

    When they are ready ,or you wish to flower..
