    Just curious. If it's an auto, can't it do better with a longer light cycle? Maybe you would finish quicker with 18/6..?

    Ms.Fox... Thanks for stopping in

    ganjagiggle... I would have thought that to but I started out on 18/6 and it never started to flower so I put it on 12/12 and have done well ever sense. I think the auto flower Gene was passes up on this plant for some reason.

    Ohhh, ic. how many days along is the plant supposed to start flower according to the breeder? When did you switch? I am interested in the auto thing, but for outdoors.

    Normally they would start flowering after 3 to 4 weeks and be done a little over 60 days but I am on day 66 from seed and I would guess I have 3 to 4 weeks left before it's ready

    I was able to get one quick photo before the lights went out tonight. I am moving in one week and don't know if I should harvest early or try to move her? If I harvest early will the bud still be ok or will it make it a waste of time?

    It doesn't look that close to being done yet? What color are the trichs?

    There still clear that's why I'm asking if it will hurt it much... I would like to move it with me but it is going to take me a little while to get a place setup for growing and I don't think it would get it's 12 hours of dark that it needs. When I order lowryder seed I thought it would be a fast grower and be done by now but this girl is a slow grower.

    Well, if there's a way not to harvest it early, I would do it. If you harvest when the trichs are clear, the high won't last long. It'd be a waste. ;-)

    Yeah try everything you can to not harvest early... your bud will have a chloriphil after taste... the high wont last as long...not to mention less weight.

    Hmmm, with the amount of time remaining before your move, you probably have little to no options. I've heard of many lowryders not completely retaining their auto-flowering qualities before and light cycles had to be changed to encourage the flowering. I also read somewhere that plants can be further sped along to maturity if the light cycle gets further cut to only 10 hours on per day. Downside is this would cut down on weight. Now, part of that strain's genetics should even expect a wild shift in light cycle considering Ruderalis typically exists in more extreme latitudes.

    Take this advice with a grain of salt as I am still light on real experience but I do like to read what others have done. Good luck on this and I'm sorry if you have to lose a beautiful plant to moving issue.

    Hm good idea munki I don't see why that wouldn't work... I have ever have thought about that before but I would be willing to bet that reducing the light cycle to 10/14 will make it finish more quickly.
