A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks
My question today is about my first try with the Auto Flower. I grow outdoors, but I use minor lighting indoors for seedlings & youngsters. I can only control extending light hours, not limiting them. So would it be beneficial to my Blueberry Auto flower to keep light on it 24/7? It will stay short enough for me to accomplish this if it is recommended. Thank you.
For the first 2 weeks I do 24/7 but found out after playing with autos they do much better if they get some rest 18/6 to even 12/12 is fine they will grow under almost any light schedule but they will grow better with some dark hours in my experience hope this helps come join us and we can help you from start to finish
My autos and photos have done well with 24, but will go to 18/6 for future grows. I’ve since harvested two autos, about 3-4 oz each. Photos are now on 12/12 with about eight more weeks to go.
accomplished auto breeder DJ Short has found autos do best on 20 on 4 off (minimises the stretch).and he also feeds veg nutes for the first 2 weeks of flowering.In his words they dont need flowering nutes until you have flowers to feed. Makes sense to me
I’m doing almost the same as dj just like my lights off longer that’s when they grow and i average 4-6 oz off my autos indoor
That’s makes a lot of sense man the sun in not out 24/7so all plants need sleep don’t care what anyone says
