    With autos you can keep feeding veg nutes until the vertical growth stops,usually around week 5 ish,then switch to bloom nutes.but you really just have to learn to read your plants bud.i suggest you start a grow journal in the new growers section,even if your not ready to grow yet you can ask your questions in your thread and all the answers are in one place fir you,you will also get plenty of assistance through your grow mate and help you get a feel for growing.

    I was in the hope of F1-ing a select early strain---- it just starts a week sooner then takes a week shorter in bloom, comes in two weeks sooner (no hybridization or ruderalis)--Cross that to an auto that is a hybrid of the very same early strain (Rudy). Should I expect a photosensitive--would I get F1 homogeny?

    Hi everyone! I have a quick question on autos. I understand they aren't light sensitive and their flower process starts automatically, but if you were on a light schedule of 20/4 and switched to 24/0 would an auto revert to veg?

    I'm going to throw out a big no.. but strange things happen so.. maybe not impossible but highly doubted. You might stress it out and get a Hermie but stopping an auto from budding once it starts...I don't think so

    I figured as much. I think in my next grow I will keep them on 24/0 from the start. Pretty humid in the basement and the lights being on helps to keep RH where it should be. Not really something I want to try on my first grow though. I've stunted a couple of my plants enough lol

    24/0 is the way I been running for almost a year. It costs a little more on the electric bill but it's easier to control other factors for sure

    I'm not too worried about the electric bill going up. I'm rocking the autocobs!

    They are on a timer that is set for 20/4, but my next auto grow I'm going to try 24/0
