    I was just wondering when you start to flower ? most flowering takes two monthes and i am assuming your plant can grow alot in that amount of time. my plant is a little over a month old so if anyone can help would greatly like the comments..

    Whenever you want. Some wait til the nodes alternate. Some people that are limited on room and lights will start sooner. They can double sometimes triple in size during flower. So its all on when you want to.

    Those would be preflowers. Congrats sounds like a girl. Pretty much just means shes ready to flower when you are. You can veg for however long you want and flower when you are ready. No set times. Just whenever is best for you

    So even though i have pistils coming through you can still veg and nothing will happen? I thought the only way to get pistils was to put it into 12/12 ? and once it starts to flower will it or can it turn male?

    I would wait until the plant is 12-16" tall to go into flower.

    This guy is going to be here 7 days a week asking for questions! I bet his plants grow fast from all the CO2 he's breathing on them while smothering them with attention. :stoned:

    When pistils emerge during veg it is an indication that it is ready to flower....and showing you sex.... Plants cannot change their DNA structure but it can be altered if stressed.... So, no, it won't turn into a male if it is a true female....but it can hermie on you if stressed....

    They've got a point...right now it's your job to read till your eyes bleed. Most of this info you can find all over this site. But if you get confused or don't really understand something, it's ok to ask.

    Keep with your normal watering schedule, but check manufacturers instructions for the flowering nutrient schedule. Go easy with 'em at first, then go full strength if all looks fine.
