I am very confused by the term “flowering time” or “time to flower”. Leafly says it is “The length of time it takes a cannabis plant to flower, or grow buds . Different plants have short or long flowering times based on their genetics.” I had come to understand it as “the number of weeks to spend in the flower phase before you can harvest.” That’s based on seeing a lot of people posting about flowering for 8 weeks, or so I understood it. Could someone kindly explain this term to this beginner?
Also, thank you all for your generosity in answering my many questions.
