How to tell when is time to switch to 12/12 indoor soil
    #856590 - 05/10/22 08:57 AM (4 months, 18 days ago)

Hey was wondering when or how you can tell when a plant is ready for the switch.  I've read you'll see pistils showing does anyone share a pic . Please help.thanks

It's another one of those things that you have to acquire an eye for with experience, both overall as a grower and with the specific strain you are running.

The idea is to have a nice even canopy of tops, while keeping the plant manageable.  Some strains will stretch over 1 foot a week during the first three weeks of flower.  You won't really know how much yours will stretch until you have run it before, that's why the first grow of a new strain should be focused on learning and dialing in the environment, rather than going for production.

I underestimated the stretch of a strain I just took down, the tops ended up about 1 foot too close to the light.  Some of them fried, one of them bleached, and the mid/lowers ended up being frostier than the tops.

I could have pulled a much better yield in the grow in my signature had I switched earlier. Research your strain, lights, and my advice is to flip sooner rather than later with more rather than less plants. You can grow from 12.12 and have viable flowers, just very small plants. Nothing other than the predicted size and height of your canopy can tell you when to flip an indoor plant to flower.
