Cultivating auto flowering strain question
    #117013 - 09/02/08 12:18 AM (8 years, 3 months ago)

Can you keep a mother of a strain that is auto flowering? It is prob a stupid question, but i really want to know and i have no clue.

Does auto flowering mean that no matter what, the plant will flower at a certain time? Or just when you introduce it to a specific light spectrum? Does it mean you can veg 24 hours, then put in a 12/12 room and it will flower then? Im a noob with questions, what can i say  :shrug:

I am still pretty new to the subject but this is my understanding - an autoflowering plant will flower on its own. It doesn't matter what type of lighting, or what your light cycle is. When the plant is ready, it begins to flower. You don't have change your light cycle or type of light you are using. It just does it's own thing.

When people talk about "mothers" I am not sure I fully understand what they are talking about, but I believe it is when you have a single plant you continually take clones from? If that is the case, then most, if not all, autoflowering species cannot be cloned.

Hope this helps and anyone who knows what they are talking about, feel free to correct me. I would like the information as well.

Yup, you can't keep a mother of an auto-flowering strain, because it'll flower. The plant determines when to flower by its own maturity and not changes in the light cycle. And yes, a mother plant is a plant that is kept continuously in the vegetative cycle (preferably bonsai trained), so that the best phenotypes can be grown again and again. If a mother plant is properly cared for, it'll stay alive and keep producing clones for up to fifteen years. :smile:
