when to flip to 12/12

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by Nasty Nate P, Mar 23, 2012.

  1. I've been begging the kids for 12 days and the are ranging from 12-16 inches. I have about a 6 foot ceiling..... When should I switch to flower
     
  2. From what I've read and experienced in my first grow - plants can double if not triple their size after switching to 12/12. The larger they are when you switch the bigger they will get! I am doing a dwc grow and flipped mine a about the same size, but I was LSTing so they were pretty bushy!

    If you want to check it out the grow is in my signature.

    -D
     
  3. I'd wait. The longer you veg the more they will yield as well.
    Flipped mine at 24" and final height was just under 4.
    Go 12/12 at least 18"-20"
     
  4. What strain are you growing.
     
  5. My first grow I flipped after a month of veg & wound up supercropping late in flower due to a lack of headroom even with an 8 ft. ceiling. I didn't train or otherwise LST my first grow & figured with an eight ft. ceiling I'd be fine. Well with a light mover, lights, plants that wound up being 50 to 54 inches tall & 24 inches inbetween 'em I ran out of room.
    Cheers,

    I have sweet tooth and cheese going now. But I know the cheese is short and bushy .it also requires up to 12 Weeks(12/12). My concern is the sweetooth.
     
  7. Taking everything into consideration i'm figuring I'll flip @ 18-20" that way puff they triple they will be right at the light
     
  8. If you flip at 18 to 20inches your sweet tooth will be any where from 50 to 6o inches tall.
     
  9. Any of you guys use H2o2? I added some last night and arose to wilted plants this am.I added 50% of the recommended dose for the 55 gallon res. I have read on a couple forums that it can Wiltt your plants from 24-48 hours. I have been foliar feeding them all day (misting them every 4/5 hours) because I read this helps with the shock from the H2o2. Any comments or help well be appreciated
     

  10. Highly unlikely. Mine at 18 finished just under 46"
     
  11. as far as the veg time question, u are going to want to keep the canopy in consideration as well depending on what ur lighting is. I grew sum uk cheese DWC and my girls where way bushy aand not very tall.so ur going to want to make sure u can keep the most even canopy. 2 different strains means 2 different plant structures.just sumthing to keep in mind. veging for longer definately rewards in yield but ur space really is the ultimate factor. I grow in a 6.5x6.5 tent nd i flip at abt 12-18 inches. gives u a little room to play with.as for the h202 im not exactly sure if its the h202 thats causing the droop or not. i run h202 from cuttings to mature plants at abt 5 ml per gal for all and i never had a wilting problem. but thats only in my experience.

    And the strand? Was it sweet tooth?

    Yea I know the cheese grows out like a bush but the sweet tooth grows tall and skinny... I am actually going to veg the cheese out for another couple Weeks I think and may make one a mother depending on the sex of the 3 I have. As for the room see the attached picture. Its roughly 12x10 with 6'to the glass on the hoods. I am running 2 digital ballasts one with a hortalux super blue dual arc bulb(600 hps & 400mh) and the other is a 1000hps. The ballasts are turned down to 600 Watts for now as the plants are still small, under 14". Should I crank the ballasts to 1000Watts instead?
    The buckets are spaced 20"on center. This waiting is killing me...lol

  14. lol patience is a virtue my friend. but u could switch up to 1000 now and just watch ur girls well for stretching. if they start to stretch or bleach just turn em back dwn.
