A major difference between Sativa and Indica is that Sativa plants generally take longer to flower (60-90 days to finish blooming). Indica strains are the faster flowering varieties and usually have a flowering timeline of 45 to 60 days. However, Sativa strains need less time for vegetative growth prior to flowering than Indica strains, so the overall grow time required for each type of marijuana is about the same.
