Marijuana light cycle: indoor—16 hours a day; outdoor—at least 6 hours of direct sunlight (“full sun”), plus several hours indirect sunlight
The weather will start to turn and the sun will begin descending in the sky as your plants fatten up with sweet, sticky buds. It might be tempting, but wait until around the Fall Equinox to start harvesting.
Buds typically grow the most toward the end of the flowering life cycle. You probably won’t notice much budding out at the beginning of the flowering stage, and it will slow down toward the end of the cycle, when buds become fully formed.
Within the flowering stage, there are three subphases:
We can’t stress enough that the timeframes in the above graphic are ranges of time for the Northern Hemisphere. You’ll need to adjust them based on your specific region and local weather and climate.

When should you grow marijuana?
When your marijuana plant becomes a seedling, you’ll notice it developing more of the traditional cannabis fan leaves. As a sprout, the seed will initially produce leaves with only one ridged blade. Once new growth develops, the leaves will develop more blades (3, 5, 7, etc.). A mature cannabis plant will have between 5 or 7 blades per leaf, but some plants may have more.
At this stage, the plant is vulnerable to disease and mold. Keep its environment clean and monitor excess moisture. Be sure to give it plenty of light.

Sativa Grow Time
Overall, the time it takes to flower cannabis depends on the strain of weed you are attempting to grow and the method you are using. If you want to grow Sativa strains, you may want to brace yourself for a longer haul, while Indicas will flower much more quickly. As you progress in your grow skillset, try combining strains in order to get the most out of your grow times and the seasons of the year.
Know The Costs
In this article, we will walk you through the growth process and also explain how growth times differ between different types of weed. We will also discuss the different grow types and compare the different methods so you can determine which one is best for your situation.
