Maybe it's just me, but autos always take longer than advertised. They are always listed by the time it takes to finish. First, is that time from the day I see the seedling? Or from when it starts flowering to harvest?
I have yet to grow an auto that did not take longer that advertised. Currently, I have an Amnesia auto at 17 weeks and 6'4", 196 cm. Amnesia auto was from Seedsman. On the site it's 11 wk to finish and 110 cm height..
Do y'all find this to be true?
Yield is usually notr has high either? Once or twice I came in over.
I am not upset about this because I can grow smoke that I want, and it is easier to hide. The last plant I grew outside, before autos, reached 14 ft and took 16 months. But what a plant and what a high.
Around my area, sativa smoke is difficult to find. All these kids seem to want is a couch lock. I went and got old, and resting ain't a problem.
Very happy with the autos.

It was an Oaxacan sativa. There was no freeze and it just kept going. I bought a couple of kilos which was to limbs with huge long feathery buds. Tasted like pine. The high was not for nighttime unless u had to be awake. Very creative, I love the land races. Loved to find some Michoacán.

I don't understand how an auto flower would go 17 weeks. Your buds will be ruined if you are watching the trichomes aren't they all amber?
So, if they say so many weeks that is suppose to mean when it finishes flowering, but you are correct that it is never right. I think it is just an estimate. I like my buds to have milky white trichomes with only one or two amber ones. I like a more energetic high.

This Amnesia Auto by fast buds is close to 20 weeks old. The buds trichomes are bright, clear and happy. She is not going to yield a lot compared to size, but what she will yield is amazing. Been cutting those little buds near the trunk and those that are better off to give the main cola more. I figure a week maybe
