Hi @MrGiggles420! Just switch your light to the blooming/flowering spectrum (if available) then change your light schedule to 12 hours ON, 12 hours OFF. After a few days you'll have to give FloraBloom and/or other blooming nutrients. Get ready for the stretch, some strains can double/triple in size! Hope this helps, I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and happy growing!

Transitioning to flowering has some complexity in it for me. I try to time the transition to flowering to be a week after the transplant to the final pot. I can then load the final pot media with Bloom nutrients, and the plant will have a week to get used to their final pot before I switch the lights to 12/12. I give them a good water that day before the transplant; transplant; then water the new pot around the outside for the first few waterings/feedings. I also give the tent a good ol' cleanout as dust, etc, is ok in veg, but in flower I don't want dust floating around my tent sticking on my buds, this goes for the fans, lights, etc. A H202 clean of the inside tent surfaces also happens to kills bug eggs, etc. that may have got in. I also lower temperatures by 5c when transitioning to flower, to mimic Autumn coming. Good Luck!

Hi Bro ! :fist:immediately mode 12/12 and you can give a stimulant flowering, in 10-12 days there will be dandelions - this signal is the beginning of a real flowering/

You just need to switch to a 12/12 light cycle. Some people claim that it helps to do 24 hours of darkness first and then switching to a 12/12 but seeing as we never get 24 hours of darkness in nature I don’t believe this step to be necessary. It may help however if you keep your temperature in The mid 70’s but temperature is not the key to get them to switch to flower light schedual is. Hope that this is informative and good luck on your grow!

Pretty simple, just set the light schedule to 12/12. There's no need to decrease the lights slowly. The plant will begin to grow at an accelerated rate, called the preflowering / stretch phase, at this phase it still requires a feeding centered around grow nutes. For 3 weeks, then you switch to bloom nutrients.
And that's pretty much it.
