    vegging is letting your plant grow without going into flowering the whole process of growing cannabis is done in two stages veging - to do this the plants should be given 18 hours of light a day and 6 hours of darkness this is a minimum of light so you could do 20 hours of light 4 hours of dark but 18/6 is most common.

    and flowering:
    cannabis will not start to produce flowers (bud) until there amount of light drops to the 12 hours a day with 12 hour dark period.

    most people veg for around 4-6 weeks depending on space ect the longer you veg the more bud you should get.

    also remember dark period should be 100% dark no light leaks as this can slow down the whole process or even turn your plants to hermies (male/female) and no good for smoking)

    i suggest you read all the stickies in the newbies and infirmary section soak up as much info as possible

    you don't need to veg kitkat but the yields will be much smalleryou can just start the 12/12 on/off light times where it will start to flower from seed,still may take a few months from seed

    You don't HAVE to veg, you can flower directly from seed. HOWEVER if you do veg for a bit your plant will grow more and produce more bud.

    If you don't have much room to grow in you can flower form seed or LST, (tie your plant down), personally I veg as much as I can, (plant doubles or triples in size when they are made to flower), and LST so as to maximise the yield.

    Good luck KK

    dunno how you managed to miss the whole vegg/flower periods lol its a pretty big part of it all

    but no u dont need to veg!! ie you can go 12/12(flower cycle) from seed if u wanted - but any kind of decent yeild will require some vegging
    vegging timescales are any 1 of the below
    24/0 = 24hrs of light 0 hrs of dark
    20/4
    18/6
    and when you want it to begin the flower stage you switch the light cycle to 12/12

    hope that helped a bit mate
    all this growing lark can be daunting at 1st but youll get there mate

    in veg the plant is establishing growth, the longer you veg the bigger your plant will be when it goes into flower and thus gets even bigger during flower

    In veg eventually the plant will show preflowers (signs of sex) and if its a female then you usally induce flowering (about 3-4 weeks) but some people like to veg for longer for big plants!
