From a fellow grower: **We have been growing Bruce banner autos for 5 weeks now are they are not doing good . Very small and flowering already. The tallest one we have at 5 weeks is 8" tall, very very small . The second group at 2 weeks seedlings very small already look very frail and yellowing some.

What you are seeing sometimes happens. Autos can be the luck of the draw. Some simply flower too soon. The only suggestion I have is to consider growing photos instead of autos so that you have control over when they flower.
Yep. Better for experienced growers. This was the 3rd post today from new growers about auto under-performance. It gets frustrating because a lot of new growers think that autos are easier to grow. I have a growing collection of autoflower pics that are just pathetic. Has to be very frustrating for the new growers too.
Yeah, not so much. Simpler maybe but not easy at all. Only takes the light schedule out of the equation but adds a lot of potential disasters waiting to happen. No time to recover from even the least of issues.
I usually do a winter grow with autos due to the cold temperatures in my area I can run the light’s 24 hours keeping my temperature up but even with good genetics sometimes you get a 3 inch wonder that’s the reason I much rather grow photos
