Is this my autos bud or am I completely lost?

If you look close at the spikes in the stigmas… is that bud forming???


Definitely the starting of a bud. :blush::v:

(In your opinion)next week is week ten I was thinking the harvest would be next week the 28 how far off am I? Like two extra weeks or a whole month still. P.s they are only 2 months and a couple of days rn. Please enlighten this foolish pleb😂

(In your opinion) is harvest near bc I was thinking harvest would be next week but I’m not to sure now tho. P.s she is 2 months old and a couple of days ohhh I also have been on 24/7 with the lights I have not turned them off. I think I should but my schedule is still not right yet. I don’t want to mess up when I can see the finish line yk. End up stunting her and I’ll start to cry😂 anyway thank you for your help and patience

You have a while yet - up to another two months posibly. I personally don’t consider harvesting until at least 90% of the pistils are orange and have receded back towards the bud. She will fatten up - be patient!

I have set this to watch so please keep posting pics weekly and all the good folks here will give you advice on readiness.


Way far off.

You’re probably on what I would consider Day 7 of true flower. So whatever your seed breeder said the flowering time is, start counting. Most take 8-12 weeks to mature. You’ve got one under your belt. I’m guessing 2 months, but 3 wouldn’t surprise me either.

What strain is this? We might be able to better estimate timelines with more info.


Runtz autos😭 I thought autos grew faster. I don’t know nothing. I thought photos took 3-4 months and autos were 2-3 months. My understanding is not there. I will never grow a photo now😭

Is that not equal up to 3 1/2 months being the most?

Veg 3-4 weeks

Flower 7 to 10 weeks

So at most 14 week= 3months and a half??

My first day was nov 15

I wanna say I’m in week 5 of flower but as you can tell I don’t know what I’m doing. My math is probably wrong

(But I’ll continue so you might be able to understand what going on in my head)

In 2 weeks it’ll be 7 weeks of flower.( math is wrong) I wouldn’t have harvested it next week but in 2 weeks. Ok that’s all in my head rn Please help me understand

Could you take a picture of the whole plant


I’ve topped her twice and I accidentally super cropped her. If you look at the main stem and go down it you’ll notice a little knuckle. I also jus defolianted her yesterday. P.s I named her Rachel.:joy: I gave them all r names. But anyway is it really going to be 2 more months of winter??:sob:


Looks like you could have a light issue what is the make and model of your light

The PH of 6.4-7.0 is that the run off, if so what’s your input. Soil range should be 6.3-6.8. The RH is high for the flower stage, target 50%. Using MG can be challenging with controlling the time released nutrients and my suggestion would be to water to liberal run off and test the PPMS and PH each time. The target run off would be 1000 PPMS and 6.5 PH :love_you_gesture:


100 watt light is bare minimum for one plant also MG soil is not cannabis friendly looks like you could have had some nitrogen toxicity which led to your plant issues


Autos are autos. Somewhat like cats in that they do what the F they want to do. 3-4 week veg time is typical average. The long veg time I experienced with an auto was 55 days min. It was a healthy plant and was slow to start and slow to flower. In the end it was a great plant and also the last auto I grew.
I am not going so say anything about Miracle Grow soil. You may have picked one that was OK.
A 100 watt light is OK for vegging plants but barely enough to flower one small plant.
The plant is just now entering flowering stage. It has a solid 8 weeks ± to harvest.
@OGIncognito brought up its leaves are telling you it is in trouble.
Are you feeding it anything? The soil is probably depleted or is not providing some nutrients it needs


Autos grow at the same rate. Photos can be done quickly if grow on 12/12. Same with autos - they can start and finish fast, although unlike photos you can’t force them to do it faster.

The perk of autos is the lack of light sensitivity. You can leave them under light for 24 hrs and they don’t care. They’ll do their thing anyway.

You started flower then the pistils emerged and you saw what I like to call “hedgehogs.” You’re pretty much right there now. I could from when the pistils first appear, but add 3 weeks to my plant’s life expectancy because of it. Net effect is the same. Even though your lady should have flowered within 4 weeks, she clearly didn’t. So even though you wanted to be in flower on Dec 15, you weren’t. You likely hit flower on Jan 15 or so. Start counting your 7-10 weeks of flower based on Jan 15, not when 4 weeks had passed from the date of sprout.

Definitely not high powered lights.


My thoughts exactly.

I bet we’re all speaking Greek a little bit. OG is talking about measuring your water pH and the parts per million (PPMs) of the water going in and the water coming out of your plant. There are digital pH and ppm meters you can (and should) get.

As far as the light, 110 true watts at max power is definitely not going to produce great results. If you’re open to it, I know there are great lights out there to be recommended for getting better growth rates and buds.

The low quality light is very likely part of what is slowing your grow down. Light is plant food. Without enough light, she’s essentially just trying to survive. You don’t grow rapidly or feel inclined to reproduce if you’re in “barely surviving” mode.


What does this mean?
