Autoflowering light cycles
Hi guys Im just wondering about something ive done wrong.
Ive got a healthy AUTO ak gummy gun that was supposed to be grown on a 20/4 light cycle from seed to harvest.
I started on the 20/4 light cycle for a few weeks untill I started seeing pistils (white hairs), then I switched to a 12/12 cycle about 2-3weeks ago..
Now I know this can lower my yeild because the plant should be on 20/4 at all times.
What I want to know is, could I change the light cycle back to 20/4 now without effecting the growth too much? The buds have only just started to develop they are tiny at the moment, shes throwing pistils out everywhere and Im sure 12/12 will ruin the yeild!!
Thanks for any help guys!!
im no expert but from what ive read on these boards, it can flower regaurdless of light cycle but the 20/4 would be better as its getting more light u could even leave it on constantly i think, like i said im no expert so just wait for someone with a bit more exprience to coem and help you
if i was you mate i would take it back to 24/0 thats why they are called autoflowering, all there is to it
leave light on
maybe nutes and water
dont worry tho mate, im sure you will get a good smoke
Thanks for the replys guys, I think I will switch to 14/10 for a few days, then 18/6 for the remainder of the growth!
Just been smoking a test sample from my 12/12 from seed auto, getting me stoned but the yeild was wank!
My other gummy gun is alot bigger with lots more bud forming because I started on 20/4, although its been on 12/12 for 2 weeks or so, the buds are just starting to form and hopefully 18hrs light per day will be good
Iv got gummys in as well.so what your saying is leave the light on 24/7 until harvest?
Yeh thats all there is to it if its an auto flowering strain, it will flower no matter what the light cycle is so give it the most light it can get.

Since my grow room is in my bedroom I cant really have the lights on all night, keeps me awake lol even with the cover over the grow box ive made, still too bright to sleep well.
So 18/6 will work well for me. Lights on at 6am, just before I go to work. Then off again at 10pm for the night.
Cheers just been out to the grow room & changed the light times.Really windy outside up here
i got some autos growing now in the grow diary. I got them on 24/7 for first three weeks and dropped to 20/4 until its bulb swap time...
Wow... a 2yr old thread has just been revived..
Aside from that... what are you going to do with the light-schedule once it's bulb-swap time?
i run 24/7 with my autos this time around, all plants are pale even with ec1.2 i wonder if they need a slight break each day to recover slightly
