depends, indoors it can take anywhere from 2-4 months. Outdoors, depending on where you live and what your climate is, it can be 2-12 months. Also what strain your growing pretty much determines how long it will will take.

I posted a similar question in another section too, so thank you for that answer.

Could I also ask if the plants can tolerate direct sunlight through a window, or would it be too much for them?

It probably would not be enough for them actually Purple. If you're growing indoors, you should use either a High pressure Sodium Lamp, or a Metal Halide Lamp, or grow outdoors. The light simply coming in from a window will not be enough light in most cases.

Pearl, I saw yer post and at the time I would have agreed with Bass but then a rusty old memory shook itself loose.>P

Way back when, a dude had a tree growing in front of a patio door, it was maturing nicely right up to point when he got busted for growing mj =>O

Go check out the thread by Purple about from seed to harvest or something like that.

from seed to smoking the herb for an indoor plant will take approximately 12-16 weeks depending on the strain (4 weeks for vegging + 8-12 weeks for flowering...pure indica's take around 8 weeks while sativa's take a little longer, up to 12 or even 14 weeks of flowering). then another week at least to dry, and if you want quality shit then another month to cure. so if you want primo shit, you're looking at a solid 4 months minimum.

and no weed plant will ever grow in a window. they need the proper light cycles, and a lot of light. for a single plant you'll need at least 200 watts of light (either compact fluorescents or high pressure sodium/metal halide bulbs with a ballast).

So you want us to beleive that plants won't grow in a green house? After all thats what a GH amounts to, growing inside through a bunch of windows;>)

But a greenhouse would have more direct sunlight and for the right photoperiods (assuming you are growing in the correct season) True, you could move your plant around from window to window in your house keeping it in the sunlight, but thats way too much work for me and growing a pot plant in a window isn't the smartest thing to do if marijuana isn't legal in your country.

as ganjaking pointed out, a greenhouse is not a window. a window receives light from one direction only, and will give your plant direct sunlight only a couple of hours each day at best. a greenhouse allows direct light all day long. and for reference, a cannabis plant won't even grow in a greenhouse if you decide to start a grow in the fall or winter (unless you're in the southern hemishphere). they need long daylight hrs (late spring, summer) to go through vegetative growth, then shorter light (fall) to flower. no window will offer this kind of proper light cycle.
