AutoFlower Not Flowering

Hey folks so I’m puzzled by this Early Miss I have growing from crop king seeds. It has been an extremely strong and healthy plant since it popped and I had high hopes for it! It showed pistils around the same time that her sisters did (2 other fem. AutoFlower from CKS white widow)
They are now on day 52 from seed and the 2 widows look way different from each other and from the Early Miss.

Now here is my question....?

Should I continue to proceed as this is an autoflower continuing my feed schedule for her and remain hopeful? Should I try to adjust her light schedule to 12/12 for a few days to see if this helps her start her journey....although I realize autoflower are based on time not light schedules, second point to that is I don’t have another place for her to go so in order for me to do a 12/12 I would have to do it for all my autos.

Details:
-Early Miss Autoflower day 52
-Excellent growth so far no problems
-Showed pistils around day 30 same as my other 2 autos
-Soiless medium (Promix HP)
-AN pH perfect feed line veg and bloom
-Calmag
-She got switched to bloom bites around the same time as the WW and since then has grown slowly but hasn’t started flowering. The strangest thing is that the EARLY MISS strain is supposed to be 1-2 weeks faster than the widows. Based on what CKS says. So needless to say I’m confused as to what may be the cause and what I should do for my next step! Here are some pictures!

Please help ! She’s a beautiful plant and I want to get her to the finish line!

Patience is the only thing i can reccomend right now. I thought my girls were starting flower one week and then realised they were just preparing to flower n then started stretching like crazy. A week or so later n I can now say they are truly flowering. Breeder guidelines and timelines are basically never correct, CKS especially as they pool their genetics from multiple growers so that one strain you've bought 3 out of 5 seeds could have been bred by different people.
She looks ready to start, Just stick to the game plan fam.

Ok! I thought she was ready to start a week or 2 ago but has been basically in the same state since ! I’m feeding her bloom nutes along side the widows and she doesn’t seem to be bothered so I’ll just keep on this track then and hopefully she makes up her mind and kicks it into to high flower gear!! Haha

The beginning of flower always seems the longest. She's focusing on making budsites at the moment. Cos shes a big plant it might just be taking longer to get all the sites established before packing on the weight.

@IGBG really... I’m glad that I’m not the first then. Did he have pictures? I have read so many mixed reviews about CKS.... the 2 widows are so different looking as well! I guess patience is going to have to be the answer here ! Hopefully I start seeing some flower action on her in the next week as that will be pushing on 60days!

I can tell you this... as long as she eventually flowers, you're gonna be happy. I think the longest I've been able to get an auto to veg is around 58 days.

That being said... I'm not a big fan of CKS. I had really bad luck when I grew EM back in 2016.

I'm rooting for ya! Hope she starts pushing pistils real soon.

This EM is absolutely massive taking over the tent slowly! Lol 65 days for an Auto without signs of flowers I’m beginning to wonder if she’s actually a photo strain....?:hmmmm:

Strange but not unheard of.

But... that's my issue with CKS. Their strains/phenos seem to be all over the map. I've only grown 2 of their strains, but both were finicky little shits.

I'm guessing photo not auto

That's CKS for ya, why, I assume, not a sponsor anymore


She is droopy, just watered or needs it???

What size pot? May be a good time to up pot and switch to 12/12

She needed water she’s perky as can be now!

She’s in a 5G smartpot coukd she wouldn’t be root bound would she ? If I do switch to 12/12 I wouldn’t be able to until my 2 widows come down as they are all in the same tent!

CKS - never using their seeds again!

Only premium genetics from now on. Once I start my photo journey I’ll find a good pheno and keep her going ! But until then I’m trying to get these autos figured out !

Not thinking she is root bound, but if yer switching her I'd up pot cuz she will get HUGE

sorry I missed yer 1st call out for help, was camping and missed it


She will be fine till she can go to 12/12, all she will do is get bigger...lol

Ok and your for sure leaning towards a photo strain? Just curious if anyone else ever had this issue with CKS ..... I’m happy with my widows but dam wish these EM were autos too! If they are actually photos then dam this girl is gunna be massive !!!

I've heard many many many issues of CKS autos NOT being autos, just on this site alone

But you have two more weeks to see if she turns, dont think she will, but it's possible

Yea I have read many reports on the CKS autos not being autos!! So this is really making think these 2 Early Miss I have are actually photo strains waiting for 12/12! If that’s the case they have been in veg for 6+weeks and by the time my widows come down and I’m able to switch they will be 8wks in veg!! So these girls are gunna get crazy big !!
I see what looks like pre flowers, if you flip to 12/12 I'll bet she flowers quickly.

Yea those preflower sites have been there for a few weeks now so that’s what got me thinking and leaning towards a photos strain but I had to confirm with you guys first!! So I guess then I will be flipping the 2 Early Miss into flower mode (12/12) in 2-3 weeks when my widows come down! Fun times to be had this will be a great experience !
