I am starting to understand more and more on how to grow a marijuina plant because of this wonderful site. I finally know how to geriminate, but the vegetative stage confuses me a little. Here's what is confusing me: I know during the vegetative stage you should be giving your plant a lot of light and then once it is done with the vegetative stage, you should cut back on the light so it starts to flower and so one......but I have a couple questions and I would like to know if anybody knows. Questions: How do you know when the vegetative stage is complete? Like, is there a certain ammount of time and then your plant changes a little, and you get an indication that it's time to start flowering? This is important, please answer with details. How do I limit the ammount of sunlight the plant gets, once it is done with it's vegetative stage, so it can start to flower, if I am growing outdoors and I can't shut off the sun, lol.
