Unknown Strain From Seed - First Time Grow

So I recently acquired some beans from a friend and rather let them go to waste I decided to put them to use if it keeps me from spending $45 everyday and a half on medicine I'm fine with that I terminated the beans in distilled water for 16 hours before placing them in pots with Organic potting soil am using seedligers fertilizer on the soil along with a basic nutrient for tomatoes I am also using a high nitrogen blend I believe that is called soul N (grow) I have been getting away with watering every 3 days I determined to Water by sticking my finger in the soil for moisture I give the fertilizer once a month the nutrients every other feeding and the soul N every watering. I have two 2ft t5 6500k cfls and one 2 ft 2400 cfl they are in a 18/6 light schedule I will add a hid before I switch to 12/12 for floweing. My space is a small spot I found in the corner of a closet I have that spot coverd in foil which I know is not optimal and can leave hot spots and is approx only 55% reflective I will upgrade as I go/grow and accumulate extra funds I have some picture I will post as soon as I find out how my grow enviroment is 77 lights in 68 ligghts off with a rh of 55 on average. These beans sprouted in nov 18th and are 12 days from seed. Like I said im new and this is my first time so am open to intelligent suggestions and all are welcome to my journal

He better up pot to at least 5 gallon, i would go with a fiber cloth pot to get good air to the roots

Cloth pots are great bc roots need o2 and h2o so it will give good run off of water and let roots breathe

I was going to up pot them but I was planning on using 3 gallon pots. I didnt know what was best all I was told was I need to let them veg for 8 weeks. But the person who told me that I have never seen with a live plant of any kind so I dont even know if he knows what hes talking about. Only thing I do know is I have two babies growing and I want to get the best I can from them with the equipment that I have. That is hoping and praying that at least one of the babies is female. If I had bad luck and they both turn out to be males should I throw them away and take my loss or can you make edibles or hash/butter with them. Either way it is still a learning experience and I am fascinated by taking part in the wonders of nature. Thx for the feedback all. You are appreciated

You can definitely flower sooner than 8 weeks. Its hard to know with an unknown strain how long it will flower or if it will be fem. A very basic rule is 1 gallon / month of life in soil. many flower on 4 weeks veg, some go 12/12 from seed. Veg time exponentially effects harvest yield/weight. Are you going to take cuttings?

If you go with an 8 week veg, consider 7 gallon pots (10 would be better), or at least 5 gallons at a bare minimum.
I think the added soil will do as much, or more, for your yield as the extra time. I use 7's and still usually flip sooner than you are planning. Hopefully you have plenty of height. Some sativas will grow to 6'+ even after a 4-5 week veg.

I have no idea what strain you are growing, but it appears to be a hybrid in the ballpark range of 50%/50% indica/sativa.

Thanks guys I will definetly need to up pot them. I would rather not veg them for 8 weeks just because im anxious and if they do turn out to be females im anxious to try it but then again I guess most of us are. Say you have a healthy plant and you let it veg for 4 or 5 weeks do you think you can reasonably expect at least an ounce from each plant at harvest

And as to the cloning question I havent decided yet cuz I dont even know the strain also as of now I only have one space for my babies and need to finish that setup before I start on another. Also I will be ordering some beans shortly. I was thinking about some autos just because of my area issues I have heard people swear by autos but again I heard people say never get autos. I have seen some impressive looking autos on here though. Any info or opinions on the issue will be appreciated
