Sometimes you need to bring the temps in the room down in order to bring out the colors that you’re asking about… just depends on the phenotype That You’re dealing with…

Mid 60’s will do the trick usually but sometimes it’s simply the genes for the colour are not dominant

If it is cold in the grow room you can open the tent up couple hours before lights come on… If it’s dark in there…

I use the room for other things so I cant do that I’ve added another fan plus going to leave windows open keep it nice n cool in there see if that makes any difference

Found it, Il be watching to see if you can pull the colour change off and pinch a few tips off you along the way, I was going to get autos but I heard you get less bud off them is this true also what are the actual benefits of growing a auto compared to a feminized

It’s more about keeping the night time lower, one or two nights won’t do it . Not from what I’ve read any way, it advised to keep themselves that low for an extended period

Yeah I read up on it last night what I can gather it needs to be the last 2-3weeks and the info I was looking at said 50 or just below that’s not going to be possible this time around bit gutted but so long as the smokes nice I’m happy

Autos seed to harvest about 75 days the ones i have are 75 days that is and small harvest …not at all …i dont really well with them and dont have to worry about light change or type just turn on the light and go it all happens on there time schedule 18-6 to 24-0 for lights just dont mess with them just let them grow natural 3 to 5 oz dry is about the normal havest for me so far
Hope this helps
