Auto-flower not flowering?

It’s now 90 days for these AF cheese. I noted pistils about a month ago but no other signs of flowering. I also changed the light to 12/12 over a month ago but still no change. The other plant in the bottom of the pic is a Blueberry which is a month behind the 3 cheese and if I’m not mistaken is showing flowers, right?

Any suggestions on what to do as you know as a 1st timer you get attached to these ladies!! Just want to make sure I’m doing it right.

Buddy, they’re all showing signs of flowering. Autos flower when they want, not when the breeders say. I’ve had a couple white widow auto from i❤gm not flower for close to 3 months. They’re looking good, don’t fret


Sorry just read your lighting situation. You are gonna need 3x more light to get anything decent. That 600w light probably only pulls about 125w. And 30 of that is going to heat and fans

Edit: just looked up your light. Both switches pull 260w but you look like you are in a 3x3 or bigger so gonna need more still

This is pretty common. You may want to finish out your grow with another inexpensive Amazon light but look really hard at a Quantum Board or if you are handy, do a diy build. This is incredibly long but worth every post:


Yes my tent is 4x4x6 high. So what do you suggest for lighting? That light that came with the package was for a 2x2x4 tent, or at least that’s what the seller sold as a all in one kit.

Well as @Myfriendis410 pointed out, a lot of people are using those quantum board lights. Me personally, I would put a 630cmh in there. Only because I run a 315w cmh in a 20"x36" tent. You would be a little shy on 50w a sqft but I love my light. I would suggest in 3100k. Only problem is heat. The ballast does get hot. What I did was modify mine to where the ballast is outside the tent. That would run you about $250. For about $350 you could get a quantum board and @dbrn32 could help you there
