Sounds to me like everything is great. Every plant you grow is going to be different. Some will grow biggr than others, and will; have bigger buds than others. Autos will always have smaller buds than regulars.

It could also be inadequate lighting.

Maybe, maybe not, any light can be too much or too little depending on how it is used.

Seedlings and clones require about 400-1000 lumens per square foot.

Vegetative growth requires about a minimum of 2,000 to 3,000 lumens per square foot.

Flowering requires about 5,000 to 10,000 lumens per square foot, ideally, and can take possibly much more.

10,000 lumens is about the average power of the sun at sea level.

Something to keep in mind is how large an area you are trying to cover. Just because a light might say it has 10,000 lumens or foot candles, this is going to be at a specific distance from the light and for only a certain area of coverage. the larger the area and the farther the light is from the leaves, the less the power of the light reaching the leaves due to the inverse square law of light and radiation…

YES! T5’s are great lights for sedlings, and development of clones. Temper your expectations of yield if you choose to grow with T5 ligtting
