    thats only really the start of flowering, when the trichs are 50/50 cloudy/amber then you harvest, or some people do 70/30 or 30/70 or w.e

    Cloudy is supposed to give more of a mind fuck, and amber more of a couch lock, so a mix is great..

    So if you prefer mind fuck over couch lock, do 70/30 cloudy/amber or if you prefer couch lock, 30/70 cloudy/amber

    like TOKE said you can leave it much longer. how long ago were the first signs of flowering? cuz it looks awful trich covered for such a young'n may be getting some prime smoke.

    autos go about 10-12 weks from when your seed popped up from the soil, if your 2 weeks in flower then about 6 weeks left mate. she will bulk up alot! in the last few weeks so keep her going a good while yet. dw about your trichmes yet mate give it a month more then start looking and thinking of your flush. head to the autoflower section and the novice section and read the stickies!

    if ur flowering time is supposed to be 45 days and ur 2 weeks in say subtract half a week for pre flower stage that give you about 5.5 weeks of bud plumping growth. she'll probably shoot up in height in the next 2 weeks also.
    GOOD LUCK GAGE

    thank you i did wonder about it as i dont think too many people have heard of it. will i be ok with just the chilli feed? can find out ingredients etc if needed... would rather not put any more money into project at the mo unless it would really benefit the yield. if i need something cheaper the better, only the 1 plant at mo and something i can find on ebay maybe?? cheers everyone

    I've just started my first autoflowering plant so I'm in the same boat, but good luck to you!

    Also one thing, when you said about it being 45 days flowering...just in case you hadn't realised, that's the approximate length of time it spends flowering, not the time after planting at which it'll be done, or anything like that

    Are you letting the soil dry out between waterings or keeping it wet?

    If all the trichomes are still clear you can keep it going for atleast a couple weeks. If you don't mind more of a body buzz you can wait till trics go amber and go even longer, 2 months sounds a bit unrealistic. The way autos can grow a couple weeks in better conditions can make a huge difference. Get more lights, I assume your cfl is 125 equivalent, really only like 40. If you want an ounce gonna need more than that.

    The color of the leaves also tells me they aren't getting enough nitrogen. check your ph in and out, I made the mistake of over correcting, in soil there is nothing wrong with a ph around 7 as most things in the soil will buffer it down. Btw what soil are you using? Also check if there is any n in your nutes, not familiar with what you're using but many flower nutes will have 0, if that's the case and your soil doesn't have any earthworm castings, bat guano, or something to give it any N a little bit now couldn't hurt especially since you should be letting it go more than a couple weeks. Be careful with that though cause you don't want to be adding any N within the last couple weeks. If you're using bottled water switch to the tap, good source of micro nutes as long as its not extremely hard.

    Good luck, and dont get discouraged, most people screw up their first grow.

    yeah i let it dry between waterings, its a 125w dual spectrum grow light, cost £35 its not a household light, i just added two small extra house bulbs to it. i dont check ph, i know i should! its a good quality potting compost im using, im going to get some molasses- sound beneficial? using good tap water. not too discouraged just would like to know its because i didnt have my grow light for the 1st month. i've staggered 2 other plants and they have been under the big light from day 1- too young to know if they are going to be better. i'm going to leave it going untill all are amber in the hope for a slighty larger yield.

    plant still looking good, bit better every day. no height growth but its all filling in now, all trichomes still clear. top leaves getting covered too no, was none before and the buds on the top and 2 nodes below have almost joined into one making the cola? i moved air in computer fan to inside the cabinet blowing directly onto plant as it gets enough fresh air anyway. for the first time my plant is blowing around in the breeze wich should be good for it. might try LST even though its small to get light to bottom of it, the new leaves at the bottom of plant have got no bigger for ages- seems like they are stuck that size. also ordered a tubular heater to boost temps in cab.
    will put new pics up soon, give it a few days to see if anything more happens? i also got some molasses for her!
