3-5+ months from seed to harvest
Recommended Autoflowering Breeders
You can control the timing if you plan ahead.
The first marijuana plant stage begins with the seed. A cannabis seed should feel hard and dry, and be light- to dark-brown in color. An undeveloped seed is generally squishy and green or white in color and likely won’t germinate.
If you buy a clone from a grower or breeder it will be a seedling, so you can skip the seed germination phase.
Notes on marijuana growth phases
If you need to determine the sex of your plants (to discard the males), they will start showing sex organs a few weeks into the veg stage. It’s imperative to separate males so they don’t pollinate the females.
Marijuana light cycle: 16 hours a day
The vegetative stage of cannabis is where the plant’s growth truly takes off. At this point, you’ve transplanted your plant into a larger pot and the roots and foliage are developing rapidly. This is also the time to begin topping or training your plants.
