Is this normal?

Autoflowers don’t care about light schedule. They’ll flower when their biological clock says to regardless of light schedule. How young are we taking?


10 weeks give or take.

That’s not young at all for an auto. Typically you’ll see them start flowering by week 7 if not before. Mine just started flowering at week 6


mine too week 6

My White Widows started preflower/showing pistils at week 5.

I’ve got one that I put in a 5gal pot on 12/13 and still is showing no signs of even beginning to flower. :v:

Yeah. I believe that was the 00 Bubble Gum. I got 3 harvests outta her. Finally pulled it outta the ground this last one,

@repins12 I bookmarked somebody page that they re vegged their auto and harvested again! I am so trying that too


I believe @Painfree, is currently doing that. I just figured that after the third time, I was pushing it.
