some sativas at the equator start and finish in 12/12...they couldn't be considered photosensitive plants, could they?

hmmm, maybe i misunderstood...i haven't smoked in a couple days and am not myself:(

edit...nope, went back and reread...JM just explains the dif between auto, photo, and lite sensitive plants...which i really don't understand the dif between light sensitive and photosensitve...

its that photosensitive requires 12/12 to trigger flower... light sensitive only requires a reduction (ie from 18 hours to 16 or 24 hours to 18) to trigger.. :toke:

I know this is an old thread but just incase this helps anyone loving in south us. the majority of mex seeds are light sensative. I have run across various rudes, hybrid types, and even a few very indica plants from cheapo mexi dirt weed. Imo mexi weed sucks cause the weather is too hot, its not sensi, and most importantly it generally couldnt be cured any worse. That and the fact some strains arwgreat but many are bred for high yield quick finish and little smell so overall, if u take the time with them u may find not only do they make ideal breeding candidates for guerilla growing in subtropic climates, but some of them have outstanding hazy highs when taken care of properly.

Long winded and off topic a little i know, but LS has some great advantages once u get use to them.(took me a few years but i am a slow one sometimes).
autos and sativas go together like yin and yang
Im new to autos and see them in my future for sure, but the last decade i have honed my ls sats and will til i die because its my fav high type but i love autos so far and truely love afn and the community is awesome

With autoflowering seeds how long do you have to have the light on and off for ? and what type of light do you use ?

For autos most people run either 18-6 or 20-4 mate..that light schedule is from seed to harvest no need to change it with autos :bong:

Any mate,there's no specific nutrients for autos.have a read through the forum,decide if your gonna grow soil,coco,hydro etc then look at nutes and if you wanna grow organic or not.:bong:

im growing in soil :) was looking at the hesi range mate, the only thing i dont get about autos is when you switch from veg to flowering so you can change the nutrients haha :S baffles my head
