Lst auto flower to early?

Gelato Outdoor auto flower Day 33! White hairs started showing so she’s in pre-flower I’m guessing.

She gets about 6-8 hours sunlight a day
Started lst’ing day 20
Just fed her today for the first time with fox farm nutes in fox farm soil
The second picture is the same strain, same package, same soil but let it grow naturally and might get 1-2 hours more of direct sunlight.

She just looks small, I like all the different heads, I’m just scared they won’t grow any higher.I’m not sure if it’s because I started lst too early, or not enough sunlight compared to the other, or because she’s under a mini greenhouse with sunflowers growing around(same age). I do keep greenhouse open all day and night so I don’t think it’s an airflow problem or anything, also the one growing naturally is not under greenhouse. Hoping the nutes will help a lot but this is my first time with auto and I don’t want to give her the wrong/ too many nutes too early.

Let me know what you think

Welcome to the forum. Plants look good and you did not start lst too early. I am thinking that 6-8 hours of sunlight is not enough. Can you get them more time in the sun?


Absolutely NEEDS way more light exposure!!!

And welcome! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Not sure if I’m able to get more light where I’m located. Gets about 6-8 hours of direct and about 2-3 indirect because of clouds and surrounding trees!

See what you can do. Not sure where you are located but where I am the sun is not as intense this time of year. Plants need enough light especially in flower.
