Germination is the first step to growing your own cannabis (marijuana) plants. After germination, you will then place the germinated seeds into your soil. These are feminized plants so after a few weeks of growth, they will enter the vegging phase. This phase will last 4-6 weeks and depends on what the grower prefers. Once ready to begin flowering, you will have to adjust the light cycle to begin.
Harlequin CBD Feminized light cycle and growth
The light cycle for this plant is the usual photoperiod setup. Compared to an autoflower, it’s only a little bit more advanced. The ideal light cycle to begin with is 18-6. That means 18 hours on and then 6 hours off. Keep this up the entire way through the vegging phase. Although some recommend more light, we find that this can stress the plant and cause the plant to hermie.
When you’re ready to begin flowering, start gradually changing the light cycle to 12-12. This will fool the plant into believing the days are getting shorter and it will begin to flower. Harlequin is a strain with a Sativa dominance and flowering is finished in 10-12 weeks.
