The growth of the plant will begin to slow down here as well, eventually stopping altogether as the plant’s energy will be focused entirely on the buds.

Flowering is triggered by the light cycle shifting to 12 hours on and off, so the timing of it will vary from growing to grow but this generally begins around week 13 of a grow.
15-16 week-old plant
The growth of a cannabis plant can be divided into 5 main chapters: germination, seedling, vegetative, flowering, and finally, budding. Within these stages of growth, many changes occur to the plant that should be noted and carefully watched for by the grower. Here, we’re going to dive into these different stages, to give you an idea of how long things generally take and what to keep an eye out for during cannabis growth.

This is the transition phase. It technically isn’t flowering at this point, but the plant will begin preparing for bud growth. The biggest growth occurs in this short period, the structure it develops within the vegetative stage is important now as the plant can almost double in height during this transition.

In this video, a young marijuana plant is topped and you can watch as the two growth tips from the top node (quick picture cheat sheet explaining nodes & growth tips) turn into the two new main colas.
All plants do that. It partly has to do with their Circadian rhythms. Plants must put energy into keeping cell walls rigid to hold up the leaves. Kinda like using their “muscles”. With plants like cannabis, the leaves tend to “rest” at night and “perk up” when they “think” the sun is going to come out.
Growing with ScrOG Time-Lapse
Today I would like to feature the following incredible marijuana growing time-lapse photography and videos, many of which were produced by fuzzygrow. View all of her time-lapse videos here: http://vimeo.com/user15676933/videos
These have been circulating around the internet for a while, but if you haven’t seen them before, you don’t want to miss these bonus marijuana time-lapse videos.
This time-lapse video spans 5 days, a frame was taken every 6 minutes. 24fps .
Why do marijuana plants seem to “breathe” in time-lapse photography? Why do the leaves begin to droop down and then suddenly spring back up?
Racial disparities in marijuana arrests remain mostly unchanged — and in some states, have gotten worse, an ACLU report shows.
“I think if you want people to stay indoors and not go out and not interact with a lot of people? Pot's a pretty good thing to have,” a Seattle-based dispensary owner said.
Black people are 9 times more likely to be arrested for marijuana possession in these states, ACLU says
A new study from researchers in Canada has found a higher likelihood of autism in babies born to mothers who used marijuana. Experts weigh in on what we know thus far.
Marijuana advocacy groups and the American Lung Association are warning about a link between marijuana smoking and a higher risk of serious infection from COVID-19.
A new study finds a link between states with legalized marijuana and people being more sexually active. But there's a downside, too.
