Plant them, set the timer, and walk away. I run autos at 18/6 for their entire lifetime. Pistils appear around three weeks, they take off stretching, and in a total of 100 days or less I harvest.I have a question. I am looking at seed varieties and I am wondering about autoflowering. specifically the quote
" Autoflowering marijuana seeds are fast flowering strains that will flower automatically during any light cycle "
Does this mean that the female plants will mature and begin to flower as soon as they mature, or will they still need to be triggered into flower by timing of darkness to mimic the fall season ?
I hope that makes sense, I have epilepsy and have trouble explaining and understanding sometimes =)
From 250 watts' worth of HPS? Potentially... People used to (and, I suppose, still do) shoot for a gram per watt, so that'd be almost nine ounces. That's assuming everything is perfect (or as near as...), you have a productive strain, your grow space is not oversized for your lighting, your walls are as close to 100% reflective as you can make them, and so on. 250 watts of HID in a space 2Â½'x2Â½' is only 40 watts per ft.Â² - which is not a vast amount by any "yardstick." If your grow space is not full - or is overfull - this would hurt yield. If your strain is not a great producer, more so. Poor reflectivity (less than, IDK, 93%) of the wall surfaces will hurt things, especially if an appreciable portion of your illumination is falling onto poorly reflecting walls. If your plants aren't trained well, causing you to have to keep your light high in order to not burn a tall pant (or portion of same), but you also have shorter ones, that is inefficient (see "inverse square" lighting distance rule). If you have a well-trained garden, a solid canopy, good light intensity which is uniform across your entire grow space area... BUT you have not kept the undergrowth trimmed, this will also hurt because little light will penetrate the canopy to reach said undergrowth.Ok I'm a noob to growing. Started growing bag seeds with 250w grow lights and blue lights also, my box is about 30"x30"x4'.. I use nutes about every 3rd watering I veged her for about 3 months from seed then went to 12/12 to start flower she has been flowering cycle about 3 1/2 weeks she is about 2 1/2' tall and showing good sign of buds but I think they look very small.. I have clipped alot of the large leaves and trimmed others. I guess my question is how much should I expect to have at harvest from this set up?
