A question from a fellow grower:
"We have purchased the ak47 autoflower seeds. They are in 3 gallon pots. We are in week 12 from sprouting of these plants and they have not started putting on buds yet. Im not sure what we are doing wrong.
First, our nutrients.
We have the following nutrients:
Fox farm big bloom
Fox farm grow big
Tiger bloom buds and blooms
We discovered after a few weeks in budding stage that we thought we were having nutrient deficiencies and treated for nitrogen deficiency. Long story short, we discovered that we were under watering.
Once we started watering more they perked up and put on some serious weight but it doesn’t seem to be in the right places. We did figure that we had done something wrong and had stunted them a bit and they might take longer. Especially being in 3 gallon pots as we learned later thats not ideal.
It’s been about 3 weeks since we started watering them properly during the budding stage and 6 weeks into the budding stage as a whole. I have attached some pictures of where we are at now.
The plants are about 28 inches tall and haven’t budded. I may just be too excited but we thought these were a somewhat small and fast growing autoflower.
All stems are turning purple and they do have white pistils coming off of them. It smells very strong of weed and they look beautiful. But we are anticipating some bulk happening on the buds rather than the plant and the leaves."
