The flowering stage is the final stage of growth for a cannabis plant. This is when plants start to develop resinous buds and your hard work will be realized. Most strains flower in 8-9 weeks, but some can take even longer, especially some sativas.
The biggest variability in how long a marijuana plant takes to grow will happen in the vegetative stage—after the seedling phase and before flowering.
Marijuana light cycle: 16 hours a day
The growth stages of marijuana can be broken down into four primary stages from seed to harvest:
Marijuana light cycle: 12 hours a day
There are a number of changes to consider once plants go from the vegetative stage to the flowering stage:
Within the flowering stage, there are three subphases:
How long does it take to grow a marijuana plant?
Two rounded cotyledon leaves will grow out from the stem as the plant unfolds from the protective casing of the seed. These initial leaves are responsible for taking in sunlight needed for the plant to become healthy and stable.
Seedling stage length: 2-3 weeks
These factors have the greatest impact on total time from seed to harvest:
This gives you the freedom to choose the exact strain you want without any worry about how long it will take. This gives you the freedom to grow some strains that otherwise are inaccessible to growers who are worried about timeframes.

What if time is not an issue?
Let’s start with the grow times for the different types of cannabis:
Be prepared to spend a significant amount of money when planning to grow weed. Buying quality marijuana seeds is not a cheap investment, and you’ll also need to invest in decently expensive equipment as well.
Indica Grow Time
While you do not necessarily need to be an expert or a daily user, it will be very helpful to learn about the plant itself, what nutrients it needs, its lifecycle, and other basic facts about the plant. We recommend reading a book regarding how to grow marijuana or on the basics of the plant itself to help you be better prepared.
Understand The Scale Of Your Grow
This is an important thing to consider before you begin: think about the power requirements and the overall size and scale of what you want to build. We recommend starting small if you are independent in order to get it right and get a feel for how the process works before you begin to scale up.
