    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.

    Curious thought, did you change your bulbs to the lower wattage and lower kelvin for the flowering? or did you add them to the current bulbs?

    veg as long as you have the space is my philosophy... but keep in mind when you flower them - they get roughly twice the current size.

    i veg under 7 100watt (23watt) cfl bulbs, then when i get ready to flower i add my splitters and then add the 60watt (14watt)) cfl bulbs for flowering, currently i have the room 12/12 cause i'm finishing one up, then everyonce in a while i'll add my hidden ones that need just time under the lights, just the way i do it, since i don't have 2 seperate rooms

    14 weeks of veg? you must be growing a giant... hope you are using some high quality lights... otherwise yield and quality may suffer...
