that one was a cut i took from the grow just before it. i took the cut two weeks into flowering and flowered that batch 8 1/2wks. today is the first day of week 9 on her so clone time, vegg time, and flower time will add up to 17wks total. not sure what i'll harvest off that little thing, but as of now i'm guessing round 1/4lb.
i took the cut two weeks into flower and it took 4wks to root and start growing. then i let it grow another 4wks till my crop was cut, dried and room cleaned out so i guess you could say it vegged for 4weeks. it did take a little longer to revert back to vegg stage.
didnt meane to give a wrong impression here. no, i do vegg some. i did flower one plant last year that wasnt vegged any. after it developed roots i put str8 into flower and it was very small. like one small cola and a few small side branches. total dried weight was 11g.
no, you dont have to take when flowering, you can take cuttings any time. its best to take before flowering starts. these were gonna be moms from plants after i had determined the sex on them, so they were starting to bud. they had to stop budding before they started growing again. takeing a cut before flowering lowers veg time needed to start growing good again. i would recommend cut before flower but if yo got the time, try what ever you want.
