Indoor hydro fill/drain with ILGM Super Silver Haze, at 4 weeks now. With my first grow I am contemplating a 13 week cycle if possible, 4 crops a year. So I am thinking veg/flow either 7/6 or 6/7 weeks although I suppose 8/5 or 5/8 is possible too. Has anyone managed a 13 week cycle, from planting seed to harvest? No pre-germinating, I don’t believe in transplanting in any form. Which timing do you think would work best?
I have a tendency of growing too many at one time and flip around week 4-5 to control the grow space better. At a 4 week flip I anticipate a week to show sexual maturity then 10 days or so for flower. I plan following these durations but it’s never exact.
Drop a seedling with a tail and generally up in 4-5 days.
14 day seedling period
4 week veg plus 1 week for sexual maturity
10 day transition period
10-12 week flowering time. This is strain specific.
@OldSkunk runs a nice flood to drain and could offer some insight on his experience and durations
Maybe running clones on a straight 12/12 will get you in that timeline but i don’t see it happening from seed
I generally average 12-14 weeks but I run gas lantern method (13on for veg…12on flower). Some plants won’t cooperate with that schedule. All the manipulation in the world won’t get them to finish before they want to @Dr-Atomic
I usually veg mine for 10ish weeks for medium sized plants.
