    3 weeks of vegetative growth is usually fine. However its really up to you. I don't usually count veg time in weeks. I go to flower when my plants reach a certain height/density.

    My current clone grow...

    11-15 I cut the clones from the mom's about 3 weeks into flower. The clones had tiny new buds on them. Flowering cones also tend to make for bushier plants. I keep the clones under TT55 fluoro's.

    12-1 transplanted the best of the clones and trashed the rest. They had roots but very little veg growth at this time. Now under T5 fluoro

    12-9 Clones showing new growth. Topped the clones and started LSTing them. ( I like short main stalks with tons of lateral growth. I like my plants bushy).

    1-1 into flower. Any new branch that heads up toward the light I tie down and force the growth hormones to lateral branches. I'll put current pics of them in my journal in a few.

    Check it out here: My journal Clones start on page 7.

    you don't have to top or prune but I would LST them.

    Light stress training is just a gentle way of readjusting the angles of growth. you use soft ties and twist ties to tie down branches and make them grow in the direction you want them to. It enables a person to force a plant to grow outwards rather than just upwards.

    When the branches grow up or perpendicular to the ground tie them over so they are parallel to the ground. When branches grow up off those tie them down too. This forces more lateral bushy growth rather than tall skinny plants.

    I use twine and binder clips. I attach the binder clips to the side of the buckets. I use one big loop as to not have the branch grow to thick for the old knot. I will cut the branch if that happens.

    A few hours after doing it you will see the leaves turn towards the light. In a day or 2 you will see new younger branches growing up towards the light. Heres some pics.

    I do it until it stops the stretch in flower. What I try to accomplish during flower is to keep the canopy open and even. This way i get the best light penetration into the plant. Lumens decrease exponentially the further away from the light you get. So keeping the bud sites on a even plane will give you the best uniform yield. IMO
