    How long can you veg a photoperiod plant?

    While I technically have a dilemma it is a good one to have I guess. In October I started my first indoor grow. With a 3' x 3' tent I opted for two autos to start. Unfortunately my purple punch auto failed to pop. So I decided to start two photo Gorilla plants and planned to train them as I learned. No problem. The dilemma comes with the Solo cup challenge. My auto cbd will finish about mid-January and the solo cup can take its spot in the tent. Hope to flip the solo to 12/12 about four weeks and race to harvest by 4/1/2020. The two gorilla girls will have been in veg at that point for about 12 weeks. I know mother plants are kept in veg a long time but for different reasons. Is this too long or still kind of in line with them if they were outside waiting for a natural transition to flower? No matter what it is going to be very crowded in the tent for a while.

    You can veg a photo plant for years and have no issues. When I clone a great strain I sometimes keep them small for a few months before I actually start growing them. And I've never had it affect the end result. Eventually I flower our mother plants and they are no different than vegging for a month or 2. We did the math once on the T1 strain of cbd plants and we found that the clones were over 5 years old if you count when the original mother was started.
    You may win the race, but you pass all the best things in life on the way.

        I have given photo plants 0 veg time, straight into 12/12s as soon as sprouted, they dont get big,,, I would recommend at least 3 weeks veg time. But it is up to you the grower, flip em when your ready!!
