    You can change periods anytime you wish. May want to watch how tall that gets. May want to lst a little. depending on how high your lights can go. Are you not growing some autos first time grower.

    Greetings Ravi,

    You will find that the more information you provide with your question the better answers you'll receive from the experienced growers here.

    For example:
    - Is your plant Photo or Autoflowering? Because if it is an Auto it will flower regardless of your light schedule
    - Feminized? Because you may want to wait for sex to show if it isn't.
    - How many weeks it has already spent in veg? Because that will determine its final size & height.
    - How much room you have to grow it out? Because once flowering begins it will stretch in every direction.

    Best regards.
    I grow exclusively in large pots using soil comprised of the compost I make combined with Foxfarm or other quality commercial soils as an amendment. Appropriate nutes as needed. State of the art LED lighting and an evolving system of environmental controls allows me to pamper my plants and let them tell me what they need.
    My goal is epicurean quality rather than high yield.
    I'm learning how to create cannabis tinctures and hashish and I almost always use a vaporizer to spare my aging lungs.
    Despite my avatar name I'm generally amenable and helpful. So, if there's a question I'm qualified to answer, hit me up!

      Grouchy thanks for the input. This particular one is a photo. Was on a 18/6 cycle for 66 days before I switched. All my seeds are feminized. The plant was 21" tall when I switched. The plants have 30" of growth height space before I get an issue of having 12" of head space below the lights. My LED are not the best considering I am in South Asia.

    switching to 12/12 is a matter of preference but tends to go based on the size you want for the plant based on your grow space
    I hope there is an afterlife...there are a lot of friends and family I'd like to see again, one day.

      can't tell from your photo. Look for pre flowers. Check the GWE tutorials to see what those look like
      currently growing 2 x Critical Purple Kush Fem, Out doors in Fox Farm Happy Frog Soil, R/ water and small amounts of Dyna Grow nutrients if needed.
