How Long Does It Take to Grow Cannabis Indoors? – It might take anywhere from 20 to 30 weeks or more to grow weed indoors. In three to ten days, a high-quality seed will germinate in an indoor grow room. Two to three weeks will be required for it to develop into a seedling (aka the seedling stage).
After being transferred into a new grow environment, the plant will undergo the vegetative stage, which can last between 3 and 16 weeks. At this point, your plants should develop rapidly as they continue to take more carbon dioxide and nutrients. Next, your cannabis plant(s) will enter the blooming phase, which typically lasts between 8 and 11 weeks.
Keep in mind that these growth timeframes are only estimations. There are a number of factors (including strain type) that can alter the time it takes for your marijuana plants to mature and be ready for harvest when grown indoors.
What should a 2 week old weed plant look like?
How large should my weed plants be following two weeks? – Your plant should typically be between 2 and 3 inches tall with 2 to 3 sets of leaves, including the cotyledons (seed leaves which are rounded). Results may vary, but they will rely heavily on the quality of your seeds, the soil in which they are germinating, and the light they are receiving.
If your seedling is not receiving enough light, it may grow taller in an effort to get closer to a light source. If you are using a light yet the seedling continues to stretch, you may be using the incorrect sort of light. Use a light source that contains some blue; “cool white” bulbs are ideal for seedlings because of this.

Similar to how people store fat for energy during times of food scarcity, the plant will utilize its stores. Ultimately, a cultivator wishes for the plant to have no remaining nutrients, or “fat,” when it is harvested. Having no nutrients is essential, since they might contaminate the buds after harvest and provide a foul, chemical flavor when smoked.
To determine when a plant is ready to be harvested, its trichomes are examined using a microscope or jeweler’s loupes. If the trichomes go from transparent to milky white, it may be ready to harvest. If several trichomes are still visible, it is too early to harvest. When the THC concentration of the buds has reached its peak, the trichomes will be opaque and amber in color.

Can I remove a bud from my plant?
Step 4: Trim buds – Now that just the buds remain, it’s time to trim them. If the buds are excessively large, divide them into smaller buds. A large blossom may have an impressive appearance, but its uneven drying makes it prone to mold. To trim: Cut the stem at the base of the bud as nearly as possible without causing it to split apart.
- You only want the stem to be visible at the very bottom.
- Remove the crow’s feet, which are the leaves at the base of the plant that resemble little bird feet.
- Remove excess plant material and groom the bud.
- Eep your scissors at an angle and in motion.
- After some time, you won’t even remember it.
- The objective is to remove everything that is not completely covered in trichomes.
Create an even surface surrounding the buds. This involves removing red pistils to the foliage level. Pistils contain relatively few or no trichomes. Place each completed bud in its own basin or plate. Wet trimming necessitates placing the final buds on a drying rack for several days.
