Whether you are starting to grow marijuana or you have been growing cannabis for quite  a while, it’s a perfect idea to learn what to expect during the most of the cannabis flowering stage. The marijuana plant has a variety of traits during the different stages in the life cycle including developing, and the flowering stage, except for many indoor growers. The final flowering stage is perhaps the most thrilling. The flowering stage when your marijuana plants grow their aromatics and soon-to-be-smoked buds. This is an especially significant stage in the life cycle of your cannabis plants. There’s a lot going on in the flowering stage; learn how to take care of your plants through every week of the flowering. And the great deal of this is because this phase shows the quantity and quality of the cultivation. Understanding the process makes it much easier to cultivate.

The First Few Flowering Weeks (Week 1,2 and 3)

When the marijuana flowering stage begins, there is no obvious change in the growth of the plant. Marijuana isn’t just going to stop growing, and then start flowering immediately. Even so, during those first weeks of flowering, several cannabis strains could undergo significant growth. This is crucial to consider when it comes to trying to feed your plants effectively, and also if you’d like to give them enough space to grow. 

Week 1 (Transition and Stretch Stage) 

Your cannabis plant will be in the transition stage in the very first weeks of flowering. Starting to think that winter isn’t far away and that it’ll soon have to carry a lot of buds. Your plant is likely to grow quickly. Throughout that time, several other strains could almost double the height. Because of the rapid growth your plant is undertaking, this early flowering phase is known as a stretch stage. When your plant is trying to put in quite some extra time to grow in size and height, a number of potential leaves will grow often at the top of big colas. Your cannabis plant is actively growing “green stuff” like stems and leaves so that it can become stronger and healthier. 

Important things to keep in mind at this preliminary phase of flowering. Even though the plant has officially entered the flowering stage, it will have a greater need for growing nutrients. You must not change your nutrient schedule abruptly and use flowering nutrients from day one to next. This is typically advised which you can resume providing growing nutrients for at least one more week after flowering begins. With cannabis stretching in early flowering, you might want to assume regarding critical interventions such as low-stress training (LST). That is where you flex the stems down and away from the center of the plant is that you can get a canopy for more efficient use of your growing lights. This can help you achieve much higher yields afterward on. 

Week 2

You may see the first white pistils growing on your female cannabis plants in the second week of the marijuana flowering stage. Those same fine white hair will develop within these places in which the big fan leaves reach the main stem. Those other fine hairs will later become buds. When your cannabis plant occurs to be male, those same “hair” will not grow, but small pollen bags will grow instead. If you grow regular a non-feminized plants which you may not notice their gender, it’s time for you to “sex” your plant so you can distinguish the males from the females. The males will not grow buds and will also pollinate you females, allowing them to grow seeds. You must check the nutrient manufacturer’s schedule to properly feed your plants once they begin to flower and to initiate the first signs of growing buds. It’s usually around this time of week 2 that you’ll need to increase flowering nutrients to assist you plants achieve their optimum capability. 

Week 3

Your marijuana plants have not yet stopped completely growing and are now about 50 percent larger than they had been three weeks prior. Though it’s still stretching a bit. The stretch is now gradually slowing down and soon coming to near halt. At the plant locations where you’ve seen some hair before, you can see the first signs of real buds developing. There won’t be a lot of resin glands and trichomes to your plants yet, that means that the smell basically can’t be too pungent at all. This stage of flowering, in which your plant is beginning to invest more and more energy on increasing flowers, is particularly critical. Try to ensure that perhaps the nutrients you give are suitable and check labels for the prescribed dose. 

Just like your plants are becoming more picky, you must check your potential deficiencies which might manifest themselves in a variety of ways, such as discolored, yellowing leaves or loss of leaves entirely. At the very same time, you also should check your plants for signs of potential over-feeding that might occur around this time. Nutrient blows are usually shown in the tips of the leaves that are discolored. If this happens, you’re going to have to cut down on trying to feed. 

Week 4

Your cannabis plant is likely to have stopped growing at week 4 of the flowering stage and now are spending all of their power on growing buds. There’re still be white hairs that would be sticking out of the buds, and the buds themselves will grow bigger and larger every day. With more and more buds growing, your plants are now producing more trichomes, making the smell much more recognizable at this phase. Because your cannabis plant has stopped growing, you won’t have to pay attention to training your plants any longer. If you have had curved branches before, you may now probably hold them up if they require structural strength. 

Week 5

You can see buds getting thicker all over your plant, in week 5 of flowering. You may also see new buds growing in new places like the main cola. With buds abounding, you cannabis plants are getting fatter every day. This is indeed a surefire sign that you are in a complete flowering stage. Your plant will have a very intense smell at this point. Make sure that you will have a good ventilation system in place if you grow indoors or in an area that does not allow legal cultivation. Some of the previously white pistils hair of your cannabis plants could now turn darker into brownish or amber shade. At the very same time, if you check your plant’s trichomes, you may see some of them become opaque. The trichomes will become milky white and the hair turn darker were all signs that your plant isn’t that far away for harvesting. 

Week 6,7 and 8 (Flowering Stage, Right Before Harvest) 

Not all marijuana strains need the very same period of time to flower, but many types will be ready to be harvested in the last three weeks. Even though there are not that many strains which will be ready until week 8. 

Flushing your Cannabis Plants

It depends on the weed flowering stage period of your specific variety, the period of flushing your marijuana plant is usually 2 weeks before harvesting. So if you ”flush,” you stop using nutrients and only give the plant plain, pH-balanced water in the last few weeks. This will deprive the soil of (flush out) salts and minerals that will create a wonderful and more natural-tasting bud. Anything other than that, you smoke is going to be very harsh and may have an irritating, and lingering aftertaste.

Check Your Plants for the Right Harvest Times

To find out when it’s time for your marijuana plant to be harvested, you can also use a jeweler’s magnifying glass or a small microscope to examine your plant’s trichomes frequently. You can see if the trichome transforms from a clear to a milky white shade. If some of the trichomes you get are still transparent, it means it is still early to be harvested. But since most trichomes get an amber color and ambiguous clarity, this indicates that now the THC content of the buds will be at its maximum and the plant is ready for harvesting.
