welcome to :420:

you can run autos on 18/6 for the entire grow. it was found that 20/4 was the voted best light cycle by auto growers . but what u have it set on will be fine.. dont switch to 12/12 from what i have read they will not do well under that schedule.

what autos are u growing?

Re: auto flower ?

I've been growing autos for 3 years now. I've grown several strains. Not one strain has done better under 12/12. The only way I would recommend 12/12 for autos, is if you have had her under 18-6 for 40 days or so. You want to get her as big as possible during those first 30-40 days, and you can only do that with more light.

I found that 18-6 works best. 20-4 works good, too, but not better than 18-6 from my experience.

Some auto strains can take up to 100+ days to finish. I wouldn't switch to 12/12 ever, just wait for pistils to starts and standback. 18/6 is what I run. Also look into some hydro setups they seem to be much more stable in a hydro environment!

Good luck! Can't wait to see a grow thread ;)

Using the trichomes is a much more accurate way to check if your ready for harvest.
