Late plant Grand Daddy Purple Auto-blum flowering already

As an experiment, I planted three GDP auto-blums middle August. Two are flowering already as of Sept. 12th. The Autumnal Equinox is Sept. 22nd. My question is rather simple, will auto-blums be triggered to flower if planted late near the Equinox? These are outdoors. Thanks. :smiley: :v:

They will flower “automatically”. They aren’t triggered by light. The ruderalis genetics throw them into flower regardless of light schedule.


That’s what I thought. However, the three later plants are all flowering, they were planted in middle Aug. The other two were planted middle June, have grown and the June plant is budding. The one I planted in July is just starting to flower. Well, they sure have me scratching my head. Thanks for the response.

No problem. I’m new to growing, but went straight for autos. I planted one at the end of June and I’m harvesting in a couple of days. Another at the beginning of July that should be done in a few weeks, but I have it growing outside and we are set for bad weather the next week so I have to take her down early.
