18 hours of light per day
Water when pot feels light or leaves droop; don't overwater
Keep at a comfortable temperature; if you feel good so does your plant
Transplant to a larger pot when the plant is bigger than the provided vessel
Reduce light to 12 hours/day for bud formation

Harvest and cure after buds have a fall like coloration
The life cycle of a seedling can be neatly separated into two categories: the vegetative and flowering states.
The vegetative state denotes the point in a seedling's life where the majority of its energy goes almost exclusively towards the creation of root growth and the production of foliage. Plants at this stage require almost eighteen hours of constant light every day, in fact most nurseries will keep young, vegetative seedlings under 24 hour lighting at all times. Maintaining constant light for a seedling is necessary as a plant exposed to too much darkness will throw themselves into something called pre-flowering, where they become stressed and split into hermaphrodites. Heat damage is a real danger during this time—keep an eye out for signs of heat damage, such as a significant drooping or curling of the leaves inwards.
The flowering stage provides plants with more independence from their caretaker. Mature seedlings only require an average of twelve hours of sunlight at this stage in their development. The directions for caring for this plant are relatively simple—keep them well watered (watching for signs of over watering or mold in the soil) and watch for signs of heat damage, but otherwise the most important thing at this point is to build a routine with your plants. Once you begin to switch a plant's light cycle from near constant light to a 12/12 split, it is important that you do not revert back. Going between different levels of light without reason may force your flowers back into their vegetative state.
To care for your seedlings, you must have the infrastructure in place. It should have a ventilation system, reliable lighting, and enough room for both your plants as well as other necessities. During the vegetative stage, you will have to watch your ventilation system closely. Too much air will contribute to your seedling drying out, whereas too little airflow will cause the air to go stagnant attracting pests and bacteria to your plants.
Even when buying from a trusted supplier, it is wise to keep all new purchases quarantined from the rest of your stock. Check for signs of disease, strange residue, or pests on the plant. Check under the plant’s leaves and in the soil for any indications of bugs or fungus. Transplanting your new seedlings into more permanent containers shortly after purchasing will allow you the chance to further inspect your plant and prevent your plant from becoming root bound in the provided pot.
