    I believe its an indica strain been vegging for over a month. LST. Would it be a good time to start flowering now?

    Depends on how much height youve got and what light your using.

    The plant looks extremely small to me, but if youre growing in a small cabinet obviously height is a big issue. How long have you been vegging it?

    That's really up to you. If you only have the one plant, and you have the room, I would veg it for a while longer. Remember, plants about double in height after the switch.

    imo veg longer... when you start to see preflowers, then you can change over to flowering.. using full spectrum of lights will help a lot... more blue during veg, more red during flowering, but try to maintain a full spectrum , even if it is a little percentage of total lighting... better than nothing.

    I just started flowering a week ago with the help of "Pineappleman420" .... he was a huge help for me! I got a ways to go in flowering... but pistils already starting to show and I have multiple spots going. (Using LST (Low Stress Training) Trying to get a more even canopy and more light penetration through the plant.

    I've always found about 18" tall in veg works for me to start flowering.
