When/ how to make the decision to flip

Post by HippyDi » Fri Jul 26, 2019 10:00 am

Hi all:)
How do you determine if she is ready to be flipped into flower. I've read plenty on height and age but nothing seems definate.

Growing a hybrid supposed to be sativa dominant 70%/ 30% but she is rather short and bushy. So height doesn't mean anything to her. Grow space is 2m high minus light and table, so I have about +1m to play with. Roots are well developed. Shes on day 50 from seed today.
Doing LST which doesn't help her shortness.
Strain: lemon kush headband
Hydroponic ebb and flow

Any opinions?:)

It's a very subjective question imho

It all depends the aim and the time frame. Basically when your happy, pull the trigger. Generally a scrog net is suggested to be 75% full to allow training through stretch to completely fill a space.

But is completely filling a space best practice?

It's all very subjective and down to personal preference. I would say tho, a mature plant usually starts producing pre flowers at the branches and that's usually a queue that the plants old enough and prepared to flower. That doesnt mean you have to wait till then or that you have to flip once these appear. It's just a good guide that the plants mature and happy to go into flower. If you want to flip before or continue to veg for longer is completely up to the grower, in my opinion atleast

Sorry if that's not the easiest answer but it's really up to you chick

really up to you

your-disco-needs-you-2472-180#p78441 <<< was vegged for about 5 weeks from roots

daylight-come-and-i-want-ao-agent-orang ... 160#p78738 <<<< was vegged for over 18 weeks from seed

its much easier to judge with a strain you know in a environment you know also. but if your jars are nearly empty then ya still got 70 ish days from flip to chop.... 70 days can be a long time to wait with empty jars :lol: so its all gotta be weighed up. its not going to end the world flipping early to fit your needs but if your stocked a longer veg will usually yield better ;)
