looks like a Q that a newbie would ask, I'm looking for "When do you start flowering?
# of nodes, days from germ, height for stretch...

When is determined by how tall you want them to be at the end of the flowering. They normally double in height when placed into 12/12. Plant maturity is evidenced by alternating nodes, usually for the first 5 or 6 nodes the leaves are directly across from its "mate," when the leaf stems start alternating they are ready for two things, sexing and culling.Time from germination is so variable no answer will be right IMO. I do put the date I soak the seeds and when they go into 12/12 but there is not too much uniformity but I would estimate 90 to 100 days for most indica strains and sativa can flower for 10 to 12 weeks I understand. Using my "average" I would expect sativa to take 17 weeks or 4 months one week. but the job isn't complete till you have harvested, trimmed hung for 1st cure and jarred( I use canning jars to hold my herb) and that might take 3 to 4 more weeks. I am just now having a 1st bowl of some I harvested back in February:) and it is getting more and more difficult to type:)

well i let'em go till 2'....and i sit back and watch'em grow...
ive got 7' to work with...they usually end up tied over at the 6'
mark...but it also depends on what strain..how much wattage..soil or hydro..and iam sure a few other things.but you can figure
on at least double the size....with a 400watt'r
