I have exact numbers ....Thanks!
Well, I don’t know exactly - I’m used to working in PPFD. But an online lux to PPFD calculator indicates that 45,000 lux is about 850 PPFD, which is about 3 umoles/hour. So 11 hours would be a DLI of about 33. A bit low for flowering, but will do okay.
Thank you! nice to see you ms hybrid!Things are looking great, as usual ms. Amy!
That is what I was expecting to happen too (shorter time to harvest), lol, it did not work out that way! The moms were original ‘from seed’ and I did do 11/13 the whole time, not just at the end. Maybe that’s a difference maker?? My first experiment with it, so I don’t have anything else to compare it to either, but its interesting. Looking forward to seeing how it works out for you.Thank you! nice to see you ms hybrid!
That’s very interesting about your 11/13 experience because many people say shortening days towards the end of flower can help speedup the finish. Yours were clones too so that’s curious. Were the moms also clones? Or were the moms the original ‘from seed’ plants?
Me and graphics man... they just do my head in! I understood the words ok tho!The following graphic may help illustrate.
Well I’m not doing it for the purpose of shortening flower time or anything so it will work out just fine like before I‘m guessingLooking forward to seeing how it works out for you.
Ok so I’m sure I’ve read that clones can have a slightly different flowering time to ’seed’ moms so perhaps that accounts for it rather than the light period. I can’t remember if it’s said the clones will be quicker to finish or slower tho, and maybe that is strain dependent as well I’m just speculating really... I don’t think the shorter light hours would have made them take longer, so I’m reaching for other explanations. As I do...moms were original ‘from seed’
Ive struggled to have success w autos outside here. But i don’t have that problem you describe with things starting flower. I am trying to find good ones that will work tho - the end of my season can be iffy in terms of humid & cool conditions.Brooklyn sunrise autos are 11 weeks. IMHO the one great purpose for autos is growing outdoors where the summers are short. Here in southern Canada plants would not finish till October. I have two Brookies growing outdoors in my journal right now. Since they legalized here I watched many have to harvest early , build make shift green houses , and lose the crop all together because nobody understood that we don’t get under 13 hours of sunlight till end of august or later. Anyway autos solve that problem.
