After rooting the clones or planting the seeds, now you have to make sure that your plant grow safely and effectively.

Now in the vegetative state you will get to see the growing leaves and it also might grow the flowers if the plant you have is an auto flowering plant.
watering plants is good but you need to know that when to feed your plant and when to stop because if you’ll feedthe excessive nutrients to a plant it may cause the damage. If youstill don’t know that when to stop you can observe the leaves of a plant if the leaves tips are looking burnt that mean the nutrition is more than enough. Marijuanaroots support a wet/dry cycle, so it’s up to you that what sort of trick you choose to know that your plant need water or not, it’s better to stay away from the plant for sometimes.
Pruning for Higher Yields

Instead cutting the branchesyou can bend them or tie them down so that they don’t reach to the light.
When you feel that your plant is now ready to begin floweringstage then you should change the lighting timer to 12 hour on and 12 hour off.
