    Default Ready to trim?

    Would you guys trim already? I've been wondering whether to feed with some extra blooming nutrients. Reduced the lighting to 12 hours now

    You mean like harvest her...cut her down?..if so then no, I don't think she's anywhere near ready yet. Get your loupe out or something that can magnify to at least 60x and check the trichomes..only they can tell you really

    Also,dont quite understand what you meant by, ''Reduced the lighting to 12 hours now.'' You flipped her 12/12 to get her to flower or she already had started to flower and then you reduced her light to 12hrs?

    You took the words out of my mouth there Hotshot brother if only just reduced to 12 hours surely it's got to be an auto and if it is an auto there's no need to reduce the hours surely, auto or photo the answer is simple NO it's not ready but as Ice said you need a loupe or a mini scope with at least 60X magnification, lets have some answers e11 brother and maybe another pic or two, all the best mukka, G'.

    It would be like plucking green or white strawberries, they're not ready. Google the strain mate you'll find a rough flowering time and from there it could be on time or a week or two late, depends how it's developed. Just from guessing I'd say between 3-4 weeks left but don't take that as fact, google the strain if you don't already know the flowering period. If you're wanting to defoliate it's best to start from the bottom stripping leaves that are depleted/yellow.

    Thanks for all of the responses. Eagerness above all else. They're autos. I guess I'll hold off for another month.

    I'm away on holiday soon and I do not trust my timers (from energenie) but unsure if it's a mechanical issue with the plugs or my new router. An entirely separate issue.

    Both really great advice. Especially the white strawberry example. That is really helpful. If the smoke isn't that great earlier then I can invest in extra timers for each plug, short term

    If they are auto's they need as much light as they can get, no less than 18/6 but 20/4 or even 24hr is best.

    If you're wanting to keep the electricity bill down 12/12 is just fine.

    Never grown an auto in my life ,but I'm sure that would compromise your grow on 12/12 regarding final results and also make the flower period longer ,so why drop the light imho ..the stand out problem from pics I can see is over feeding

    I agree, with autos the minimum you should really go is 18 hours anything less and you're really restricting the plant.

    I'll reiterate regarding light schedule, if you're wanting to keep the electricity bill down 12/12 is just fine to flower an auto.

    As for 24/0 during flower, apart from the unnecessary cost, there's also possible effects of no dark period.

    No problem, they grow just fine on 12/12. When I've had autos in with my photos they've just ran on the same light schedule so when the photos were due to flower the autos ran on 12/12, think the most I went to during veg was 20/4 as darkness is part of the circadian rhythm and critically important.

    Im pretty sure auto's dont need a dark period,im not exactly sure of the science behind it but it has been explained on here by someone before.Ive always maintained with auto's, less light = smaller plants/smaller yields as they grow so fast and need as much light as possible. I mean, the last auto I grew finished in 49 days and I imagine it would of been tiny if I didnt keep it to a 20/4 schedule. different strokes for different folks I suppose.

    Have you ever seen anything grown, in the Alaska Summer? When the light is 23.5 hours A day. Things get huge up there. lol

    Borrowed this from elsewhere.... ''Cannabis is classed as a C3 plant, meaning it can absorb CO? during periods of light for photosynthesis. This theoretically eliminates the need for darkness, as they do not need periods of dark to photosynthesis, unlike C4 plants. Autoflowering plants have also evolved in the northern areas of the world where they receive near to 24-hours of light as standard during the seasons of growth. As such, it is safe to say that autoflowering cannabis can thrive under 24-hours of lighting.''
