Only a week of Veg? No problem... right?

What do you guys think of purposely switching to flower after two weeks or less of veg? Does anyone have any experiences with this concept if so were you satisfied with your yield?

This was something that I couldn't find any video of on youtube or even a discussion on a forum, so if it ends up to be unexplored I'll just try it myself and document it here on ICMag.
Every idea and opinion is welcome.

... there are folks out there that are doing 12/12 from seed. Let her rip

Longer veg will give you bigger final yield, but as Switcher said many run 12/12 from seed.

Most people running SOG only veg 2 weeks. For SCROG I usually veg at least 4 weeks though.

You can do lots of plants with short veg or few plants with long veg and get same harvest. Whichever works best for you.

Pictured is my current run of Granddaddy Purp at 53 days.

These plants had zero veg. The cuts were taken and the dome placed directly into 12/12. This was done to sex the seed mothers as quickly as possible. I'm guessing they will yield 1/2 zip per plant.

Check this thread out. It's about growing 12/12 from seed.

This topic is more interesting than I first thought, the thread Cvh mentioned convinced me. Ill try it with the three bublelicious seeds from Nirvana that I have laying around...maybe I'll make a short journal out of it to keep you guys posted if anyone's interested.

I have tried 12/12 from seed when I ran out of weed after being hospitalized for a period. I wouldn't do it again unless I needed to. A few weeks veg makes a huge difference on yield.

I'm going on a trip to Amsterdam on the 4th of July and I really want to pump out another grow...so I have a month and a half to pull it off. Ill veg for two weeks and then switch to 12/12.

Very diplomatic to preserve the honor of SOG haters, but technically wrong. The difference of yield in term of weight per year is just abyssal with strains builded for that. And i'm not talking about the insane densities than you can reach per sqm if you use the full height of your surface to set multiple layers of clones. You reach statistics of productivity than generally look like legendary for a bunch of next gen growers.
