    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

I have had autos that didn't want to, that I put on 12//12 for a week them sent them back to 24/0 and they continued to flower. I've also had some that were put into 12/12 shortly before they flowered and they did almost as well as the 24/0 plants! Go figure........ but maybe it could work. I was just reading a bit on photo-chemical processes in plants and it's WAY more complicated than most of us know. My head's still spinning from that read lol. There are compounds to enhance the process, compounds to reduce damage from too much ;light ( which most plants experience every day outdoors ).
And so on. And then that's just one process we are discussing out of??? thousands? tens of thousands?? Would love to see a funded study of the autoflower process, I bet it's fascinating!
If anyone would, Israel would!

So here is a pic of the double grape x silverback now I had this in a breeding area the buds just weren't really doing tomuch growing so 7 days later I pollenated these buds now within a few days it started making a huge effort to continue now I had this going for 40days or less and have mature seeds now the whole time it was being fed but looked worse and worse so I harvested it now I harvested it based on trics and how fast it was declining because I didn't want to cause any issues in my grow space or with other plant now here are some pics the buds are very different from the original the pic is the most normal looking the rest is different.
So wat your guys thought and opinions on this again it seems like survival mode it realizes it's been stressed in wild say a deer tramples it 2wks before harvest it senses it's been put in jeopardy of not making it again I don't think I would call this a reveg but something did happen. As for the Facebook comment about it reverting back to a prized photo can definitely say that's not the case in my experiment lol anyways sending good vibes to all and I will soon try this again with a different strain.

Dunno i seeded mine with f1 auto/photo hybrid and all in south window.
Its still growing a node but i used bap to try n stop senescence.
Have to make an IAA 10ppm concoction to promote roots n throw it under 18hr light. Surprised no one knows what makes an autoflower flower yet.

Nice I have a few like that @ different generations you may find an auto in your f1s I did and have done/continuing the test to see its stability as far as autoflowering properties. Love hearing others are doing them and having fun with it.

I just harvested a cloned auto. I had a branch from a Dutch Passion's Colorado cookie. The branch snapped during pre flower. I treated her as any other clone and she survived just fine. The thing was she didn't grow any bigger really. She just turned into one 1/8 oz bud.
