Flowering too soon?

Continuing the discussion from Need help this is my first grow:

Our plants have done well, no leaf issues and grew well. It seems flowing has been weak and we seem to be getting close to harvest time but the buds are thin and the yield is very small.

Could you post a pic of the entire plant and it looks like you still have some time

There is one White Willow autoflower and one gold leaf autoflower. I was concerned about the one where the pistils are starting to turn brown and would be getting close to harvest when the buds don;t really look very full and ready.

As they grow the older pistols will brown up as they stack
But To be honest you need more light they are thin and lanky cause of the low light situation
Normally you’d want to flower under 600 watts min
Let me tag in one of the other mentors he’s really good with the led lights
@dbrn32 @MattyBear


You’re lacking in light to get buds to fatten up. Also, not knowing your ph could have something to do with it. Ph is one of the most important things to growing so you will want to get a meter to measure your ph and some more lighting to get where you want to be IMO… :v::bear:


I appreciate the info. I have a full spectrum 300W that I just added to the grow tent. I just have to keep to keep the heat down with more air flow and circulation. I’ll get a PH meter. What is the ideal PH level?


6.5-7.0 is where you want your ph and yes put a fan in there to Circulate air but definitely want to put that light in too


How big is space you’re growing in? Cannabis requires a very high light intensity level to do well. A lot of mass produced led panel manufacturers are know to over promise and under deliver on performance too.


In soil 6.3-6.8 is perfect
Good deal on the light more light will help for sure
You got all the whole staff here just about to help you
You running a exhaust fan in tent ? You should if your not


Indoor grow house 2X2X4. Have 300W full spectrum light, fan and exhaust fax system. I’m sure that the low light was my issue and making sure the PH is good.
