That means that once you've started flowering a specific strain, there isn't a whole lot good options to speed things up during the flowering stage.

So for example, Northern Lights has a flowering stage length of about 8 weeks. If you flowered a Northern Lights strain plant from seed, your buds would be ready to harvest in about 11-12 weeks.

2.) Choose A Quick-Finishing Strain of Marijuana

The truth is, you can grow weed in only 20-30 minutes a week when you use the right techniques and get used to the process of growing. The following article reveals the best way we know to grow lots of potent bud while using a minimum amount of time to do so. We make this happen using a hydroponic style of growing known as Top-fed DWC (aka "bubbleponics").

4.) Initiate The Flowering Stage Sooner

Short Answer: From Day 1 of your marijuana plant's life to a smokable harvest, you are looking at a window ranging between 3 and 7+ months!

After the plants are acclimated to their new photoperiod, you can begin gradually increasing light intensity by about 10% every 1-2 days.

Many growers run into issues when flipping their veg room to flower. Keep your crop healthy and avoid shock damage by gradually transitioning your plants from their vegetative to flowering lighting conditions. Do this by incrementally increasing light levels and limiting cultivation changes to as few variables as possible.

Your cannabis crop is looking great as it completes the vegetative stage – uniform structure, robust size, pest and pathogen-free. Now it’s time to switch from veg to flower!

STEP 2: Begin to Increase Light Intensity

For the first 1-2 days in flowering, just let your plants get used to the new 12-hour photoperiod. Leave light intensity the same as what they were exposed to in the vegetative stage.

If your LEDs are integrated with a lighting control software like smartPAR™, you can program your lights to increase intensity incrementally until you reach your maximum flower light intensity.

STEP 1: Adjust to 12-Hour Photoperiod

Signs of stress can manifest as leaf drop, chlorosis (yellowing) of leaves, reddening of leaves, drooping leaves and slow growth. If your crop is showing signs of stress while you make the transition to higher light intensities, lower the light intensity and make more frequent lower intensity increases to complete the transition.

Once your light intensity has reached the level you want for flower and your plants are happy, let them do their thing! At this stage, you can adjust other environmental variables as needed. Keep in mind that any cultivation changes can impact plant performance as you transition your crop through its life stages. Try to minimize the number of changes you make at any one time to maintain your crop’s health.
