So I’ve been growing a set of autos for almost two months now and they’re growing really slow
I struggled with humidity too finally , I put a bucket of water in the tent. Then I soaked a rag and left it 2/3 in water and set it on the lip of the bucket. Humidity 43 percent now. Before I did that mine was about 20.
It is possible that it could be just the plants genetics. That is only 8 weeks as well. From my understanding, this is around where most strains start to go to flower. Once they flower though, they can get up to 50% bigger.
Otherwise there could be some environmental factors needing to be changed?
From my understanding, you can force some to flower by switching to 12/12 because if they aren’t high on the ruderalis genes it’ll affect the “auto flowering”(I’ve read where it might be necessary, and others who have done it to force). Mind you, reading and experience are two very different things and I only have a grasp on growing at this point.
