First autoflower grow and wanted to know if i should drop the light cycle from 18/6 to 12/12 its jack herer and im on day 55, if this was a photo id say it was in week 3 of flower
You can if you want to but don’t have to most people run autos on 18/6 unless having problems getting to flower. I run my white widow autos on 18/6
Nope my autos go with 20/4 seed to harvest its how I’m able to do 3 month grows since I’m getting more then 1/3 more light every day then a photo plant
My autos go 18/6 for the entire cycle. I raise and lower the lights(or plants)as needed.
If its an “auto” you can run any light cycle and it will flower on its own.
I run mine 24hr but I decided to put mine on a 12/12 in week 7 after it hadnt started flowering.
It finally started flowering around 8 1/2 weeks. No more autos for me,thats just ridiculous.
I grow Autos and Photos together on 12/12 start to finish. I personally feel 12/12 on Autos hurts the overall haul. I say this because I get almost the same weight on different Auto strains but Photos it varies greatly. From 1.3oz to 2 lbs.
I agree with this assessment. My autos grown out on 12/12 generally seem to net about 2-3oz per plant regardless of what it is or how I treat it, while my photos can produce anywhere between 3 and 14 ounces.
I forgot to mention that i ran my plants 24/0 threw veg because of cold conditions now getting warmer in the tent i give them 6 hours of rest.
What strain is that?and are they autos?
@Hex they are white widow autos in week 11
They look great.This is my first auto crop I usually have photos but i thought id give autos a try.
This is my first grow it is a learning curve but you already know if you 55 days into.
