hi K2Hi, I am looking to start a small autogrow and want to go cheap, yet efficient. I like mainly Sativa strains, or hybrids that are sativa dominant.
I'm looking forward to learning all about autoflower plants.
just wanted to share my opinion, that in the many plants that I have grown , my 'least' impressive plants, in terms of potency and yield, have been auto flowering plants.
I too have grown 12/12 from seed, only once but with 6+varieties, and the 12/12 had consistently strong potency where as the autos just lacked in my opinion. I think Ive flowered 5 diff auto varieties. Anyway wanted you to know.
Personally, I'd recommend starting your plants from seed and vegging your plants for at least 4 weeks after the first true set of leaves has opened. Ideally you'd wait a likely 6-7 weeks total from seed, growing vegetatively(sp), and the plants WILL then reveal their gender by exhibiting a pre-flower of either male of female gender.... It is in my opinion the ideal time to induce flowering, 'after' the plant has revealed its gender. When I have done this, the end product seems to always be superior!
Again, this is all just my experience brothers and sisters
good luck in whatever you grow, and I too would endorse the satori!
we had a auto party cup contest at the auto sub forum in the " tool shed ".we had an Auto competition(friendly) on another site..(30 auto growers?)(all seeds came from reputable breeders)....Most of the growers failed miserably, Most people ended up with a 14" plant and 1/4 oz of dry weed when the smoke cleared,...was pathetic.....I'm talking experienced photo growers who have been growing for 40 yrs......Although...there was one girl that loved auto's and killed it with them...but she only showed the successes!
Interesting stuff would love to see a half pound auto dry in reality terms that would mean that the plant had 2 pounds wet on it HAHAHAThere are a lot of people getting 4-6 ounces from "think different" auto, some are getting a half pound. I may try some outdoor next year could be fun.
How long do you veg your plants? Maybe you are just not vegging long enough. Some strains take longer to show sex/preflowers than others, but all should eventually if kept in veg long enough. I don't believe that whether they are Canadian or not makes any difference in the time to preflowers.With my Canadian MMJ plants.....I have too turn my light too 12\12, too find out if they are girls or boys? They don't show me on 18/6.......or 24/0....on that light cycle they are just pot plants.....I'm not trying to start anything bro.....just asking?
a couple of my positronic beans wouldnt preflower vegg'd my haze for 7 monthsHow long do you veg your plants? Maybe you are just not vegging long enough. Some strains take longer to show sex/preflowers than others, but all should eventually if kept in veg long enough. I don't believe that whether they are Canadian or not makes any difference in the time to preflowers.
lol 2 month veg is too long for you >.<LOL....Hemp....it was a joke...like Canadian seeds are different from any others??? lol..and WhoTF has time too veg their plants 2 months....great that's 3 harvests a yr....WHohooooooo!! lol.....I think if you veg a plant for 7 months.....its your mother plant.
And if you throw 30 LONG TIME growers at a Ruderalis(smaller site, real info, unlike RIU you referred too)....and they all laugh at what they get....and move on.....its a waste of time. TO ME of Course!!!! But you tell me...."They didn't know RUDERALIS" lol These things grow through cracks in the sidewalk bro! I said...."she didn't show her shortcomings(failed plants)....all she showed were her successes. So of course its going to "LOOK" like she's an Auto god!
We were going to do a "party cup" competition.....till everyone got a clue, and decided we don't want to waste a $10 seed on a half zip! lol Just didn't make sense to us!
