Flowering Time

Flowering time references the period in which a cannabis plant produces flowers (bud), typically after the vegetative stage when it’s been actively growing. A plant enters the flowering time when its exposure to light hits 12 or fewer hours a day, typically around the fall in nature. Having said this, growers have the ability to manipulate an artificial growing ecosystem to ensure that their cannabis plants flower at a specific time. After cannabis plants have entered the flowering phase and are subjected to a schedule of 12 hours of darkness followed by 12 hours of light, they will begin to produce flowers at an increased rate.
