You may not realize that regular (non auto-flowering) marijuana plants can be flowered directly from seed.

Yet growing indoors gives you the ultimate control over how big your plants get, how long to keep them in the vegetative stage, and exactly when they start flowering amongst other things. You also have a lot more control over how much bud you'll end up yielding.

Now if you're starting with a good soil (Fox Farms Ocean Forest soil is a proven choice), you may not need to supplement any nutrients for the first 3-4 weeks, as the nutrients you need are already in the soil.

4.) Initiate The Flowering Stage Sooner

Keep in mind that this is a fairly advanced technique, and should only be attempted by intermediate-advanced growers or particularly brave newcomers.

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.

5.) Grow Indoors

The vegetative stage can be shortened by getting the plant to grow faster when she's young. Yet the length of the flowering stage (the time between when flowers first start forming and when the plant is ready to harvest) is pretty much strain-specific.

Hazes and Sativas often take much longer. For example a haze strain (like Haze from Nirvana) can take 3-4 months in the flowering stage before being ready to harvest.

Why would you want this period to last any longer than it has to, though?

You also have to remember that your plants will approximately double in size from the beginning of the flowering stage to the end. This means you want to take them out of vegging when they are about half of the final desired size.

Most reputable online seed banks are located in Europe, but some have US offices, which cuts down on shipping times. Our article on the best places to buy marijuana seeds has everything you need to find the best seed bank.

If you are starting with clones, you don’t have to worry about germination, but you do need to get your clones to root, before they can start growing. This process usually takes 5 to 10 days. We have an entire article on getting your clones to root faster.

Choose A Fast Growing Strain

And there is. Luckily, the flowering time is the easiest to shorten. We’ll follow up our breakdown of each stage with some specific tips for speeding up your marijuana grow. You can also shorten veg quite a bit, by growing smaller plants instead of larger ones.
