How long should I keep vegging ?

Hi guys! So this is my tent . 6weeks from seed . Topped twice with a little LST.
The plants are very bushy but also very short.
How long should I keep vegging? And when should I use a scrog net ?

If you slowly start dropping your hours down to a 14-16 hr light schedule you’ll induce some more growth. Do it over a week and by the time you do flip they’ll be monsters. Flip when you reach half the height you want

Since the strain is sativa dominant It can stretch up to 3x . And so far my plant still has 10inches of growth before it hits what I prepared for the stretch.
Will raising the lights a bit higher help ? My nodes are guite tight so far.
My goal is to full up the tent. Since its my first time i am not sure what to expect.
And thanks for you input

Not all strains will scrog equally. Short bushy indica heavy plants might not be worth the extra time but those look great. I would defol all the inside fans to give the side branching on the main stem room to stretch out. Tie down branches to the side of the pot to spread it out more too. Then get the scrog in and continue tucking through the stretch. At least until day 14

Ok thanks . But how much taller should I let the plants get before adding the net ?

This plant is not getting scrogged but this is what I mean about spreading it out.

They fill in fast don't be afraid to be aggressive if they are growing well 👍

I would have flipped last week.

Wow nice 👌 Thanks for the input wise one !
But is the fact that my plant is very short a problem (I maybe toped to early)? Or will she catch up fast now that topping is done ?
No they're fine. If your not in a rush to flower them it doesn't matter. Here's a shot of what I was taking about actually applied to a scrog 👍 this plant veg for 60 days.

You gotta get those branches as horizontal as possible

Yes we all know that you calculate days to harvest in your yield numbers but not everybody does. Please don't troll another scrog thread with this crap, thanks. 👍
Oh so now my opinions are trolling? I'm just trying to share my experience. It's a well known fact that smaller plants make better relative yields. So why the name calling?

Because we just went through this in another thread less than a week ago. Exact same comment. Why not offer a little more information with your opinion so it's actually useful to the OP. What you did was a cryptic 'I know better than you" comment. Sorry if I think that's trolling my bad.

Come on man, you're like a book I've already read. Smh

Was the op part of that thread? I think not.

Oh nice ! The plant looks huge for its pot lol
Btw is there any merit to placing my light a bit higher to "try to make it stretch out more ? Or is it just "bioscience"
Yeah im in no rush to flower yet . Where I live in summer it gets as hot as 36°Celsius (100farenheint ?) So my next grow will probably only start in September. So i will try to max out this first grow before summer

But damn I gotta say I appreciate this community on this forum . Passionate and eager to teach members with fast replies ! I tries reddit at first but they only seem interested in showing of their buds more than anything.
So thanks again THC Farmer's!

Don't raise the light to try to stretch them. You'll only be making more stems in the end.

That plant is deliberately in a 1 gal pot for a 1 lb challenge grow here on the farm. 👍
