    You can veg as short as you want to really as long as the plant is mature enough to sex(from seed). Clones can be flowered soon as they have a healthy root system.

    It is all really strain dependant. Most strains I grow would be close to 2oz at around 3ft.

    Why not start a few Automatics while you veg decent sized bushes. The two months it would take to finish the auto's would be more than enough time to grow an O or 2 and you would have somthing to medicate with while you wait for them too finish.
    To answer your Question with Indica dom plants I veg for 3-4 weeks topping early and usually end up with or close to a O when done. You can do a 12/12 from seed if in a jam
    I highly recomend Auto's though for a quick fix

    root mass,,, its all in the root mass,,, Jam Man,,,
    if its there,,, you could flower them at 12 in,,,,
    me,,, I never tried autos,, yet,,, but,,,
    there is a pretty big following for them,,,
    and their gaining more and more,,,every day,,,

    If yer doing a seed run,,,( non auto) ya really should let'm mature ,,,
    and show their pre flowers,,, this takes longer
    wish I could lay a couple nice cuts on ya man,,,
    once mature,,, they do really well,,,
    you'd be surprised if the cut is taken just so,,,
    what can be pulled from a 12 inch plant,,,, Oh,,, ya,,,

    my rule of thumb has always been to wait until they show sex/pre flower, that can be 4 weeks for some and 6 weeks for others, i really dont remember any taking longer then 6 weeks to show sex

    hight depends on lots of factors, i can make a plant stretch to 18 inches pretty fast, but i can take a seed from the same lot and keep it short n fat taking ages to reach 18 inches

    4-6 weeks

    if you go 12/12 from the start its gunna take that long to start flowering anyway as it needs to become sexually mature before it will flower, the only benefit i see going 12/12 from seed is electricity savings (at the cost of a smaller plant) and it will start to flower the exact second it is able to instead of us realizing its time

    peace

    I grew an auto with 3 cfl's 15 watts each on seperate desk lamps and got 6 grams off of it if I remember right. Did work and did not raise the bill too much 3-5 bucks a month I think it was. Surrounded the plant with the lights.

    I'd run a couple 32 watt per bulb t8 shop lights. Can keep them very close to the plant as there is very little heat and they are very reasonable on electric bills.

    jam do the autos, get some sativa a lot of the breeders recommend flowering two weeks after germ inside because of the stretch you will still have decent size plants with a decent yield. have some indica vegging with your autos veg to desired height throw them in with your sativa. harvest your autos few weeks later sativa few weeks later indica. an auto sativa indica perpetual 3 harvest weeks apart, a nice stash in shorter time than regular grows. just throwing out some ideas for you to get the most in a shorter amount of time. good luck sam

    I tend to flower when 8"-12" tall and they finish 2'-3' high depending on the ratio of indica to sativa but I also prefer to wait until my plants are all sexed unless I'm doing a bean run.

    I always got Pink Floyd or the Beatles playin in the background for my girl listening pleasure. Scientificly prooven that music helps plants health and vigor.
