AUTOFLOWER not flowering? Read below

Bruce banner autos
Happy frog soil
Mars hydro light (100-125 real watts)
Constant airflow

So I’ve been looking around and have heard multiple different things. What’s you guys opinions? Basically it’s almost week 6 and my plant has looked the same for about two weeks now almost. I’ve heard people say take it out and leave it in the dark for two days then put it on a 12/12 schedule and that will make it flower. I’ve also heard leave it alone and it’s possible it could begin flowering after 10 weeks and how other peoples have etc and how waiting longer to flower means more yield. idk what to do can anyone please point me in the right direction?

That’s where I’m leaning. Some dude tried to tell me it’s a recessive trait and it’s never gonna bud out so that kinda worries me.

Looks like it’s in preflower now. Give it a few more weeks…


Would it look the exact same over two weeks tho? Yea I’m gonna wait it out.

Maybe. Probably not. Don’t see any issues you should be addressing. Keep doing what you’re doing. It’ll be fine…

The best I can give you is to start here my friend.

As others have said, it is certainly in preflower.
Do you have any photos from a week or so ago?

The comparison may be informative.


Over watering. They theoretically should be a little further but saying almost 6 weeks old is vague. For instance it’s normal for autos to start flowering between days 35-40 which seems like where you’re at

If you want to make sure you can turn the lights off for 48hr,then turn the lights on for 12hr for the rest of the grow.

So when u watered did u get a pH and ppm runoff numbers. We need this. To me the pH is off or something wonky is happening here. It is starting flower as u can see the pistils a bit but with the pH issue it is locking out the plant from doing anything at all it looks or seems. Next water get some to or distilled water and set it at 200ppm with just calmag then pH it to 6.5 can add tribus but id wait to add anything else for a minute get enough water mixed up u can water slowly to saturate every bit of soil let some run off a cup or so then with a shallow bowl collect some drips enough to dump in a shot glass and get pH and ppm numbers. I bet pH is way off on this plant. Water slowly tho quarter gallon or so wait 10 mins then again til u get water dripping out bottom if I were u I’d water til runoff Everytime u water or feed also it will help that roots out alot push salts out and make ways for fresh stuff. If u water and never get runoff not all roots get wet and nutes build up in the soil and create alot of issues.

Ph run off is not accurate, a slurry sample must be done

Sorry for the late response. Here are a few. I can’t understand why it’s not changing at all at least nothing I can notice the only thing I’ve seen at all it seems like the stem going into the soil has gotten a bit bigger but other than that nothing new elsewhere. Really not sure if I leave it in the dark for two days and then bring it back to the light or just leave it be… any idea ?
