I have a 48x48x80 tent that I have been growing some autoflowers for close to a year now. I use LST as early as possible and have had good results. However unable to clone autos each plant is different and I have been learning along the way certain things to look for or things as simple as rotating the pots every day.
Most plants end up growing about two feet in a bush with 5 or 6 main colas. This plant messed up my plant rotation by growing way too big. I honestly do not remember when I planted this bean but it has been at least 12 weeks. It did autoflower and started to show pistils early and early bud development but it just kept growing and bud development seemed to slow . It seems like it wants to act like an auto and a photo at the same time. I switched my lights to 12/12 hoping it would stop any more vertical growth. I can not move my lights higher.
Buds are taking off now but this plant is way behind schedule compared to any other auto i have grown as far as bud development. I am not complaining, this plant is huge for an auto and It is full of flowers so it is not a bad problem to have right now.
