When do I switch from veg stage to flower?

more info:
Your young vegging plants will be ready to flower when you first start seeing alternating nodes appear on the growth tips, usually around week 4-5. As stated above, you have the choice after that point to develop the plant into a shape and number of nodes that will work for your needs and the space you have to work with. An adage that I follow is that after this point of maturity, every extra week in veg will double the eventual yield.

Thank you all for your input...very helpful. How long generally is the flowering stage from start to finish?

That totally depends on the genetics of the strain. Some are super fast (usually autos) and can get done in 6-7 weeks of flower... typical is 8-9 weeks, and some sativas can go 14-18 weeks.

Wow, thanks. I know my plants are indica, but no clue the strain. Each one grows so differently...one is real bushy.
