Autoflower - what would you do?
    #543980 - 04/07/11 08:37 AM (5 years, 7 months ago)

So, lets say theres a few autoflower plants growing. Theres a veg room with 200w of CFL that runs 24 hour lighting, and theres a flower room with 400w of HPS, obviously 12 hours of lighting.

After 20 some days, the autoflower plants will show sex and begin to flower.

Would you move them to the flowering room where they will get a more powerful light for 1/2 of the day, or would you keep them in the veg room where they will get 1/2 the light for the entire day?

Does it somehow balance out?

Anyone with autoflower experience...does leaving them under full lighting really improve their performance in the end? Its nice that its an option, but any auto I've ever grown out has been switched to 12/12 just like the other plants (mainly because I didn't have anything else in the veg room to keep going).

Thanks!~

I remember a few years ago I saw someone's experiment where as far as they could tell 20/4 was not much different than 24/0

Armed with that chunk of unproven theory, I would recommend using the HPS

Depending on when I go for this, I might have some stuff to veg anyway...maybe I'll be able to do an experiment :strokebeard:

i'm growing an afgan kush rider, it's been in the same room durring veg and now flower.

i don't have any other light to use, otherwise I've read that auto-flowers work best on 20/4 day/night. I'll let you know how it does in 12/12.

if you wouldn't mind manual moving it around it could be beneficial to give it a few more hours each day under the cpf.

here she is getting a little sun. I was considering having my flower period during night and putting it in the sunlight during the day.


day 28 or so

I've only done one auto grow, but those plants were grown using 12/12 as a light schedule.  Pulled about a 28 gram average on those plants.  Regardless of the light schedule you will always produce better buds under your HID light.  So if that's an option that would be where I would want to stick my flowering girls.

:thumbup:

Its all gonna depend on what else is going on during that time. If I have room, I'll probably put them under the HPS. If I have something else to veg, I'll leave one or two in the veg room.

I dunno. Just trying to gather opinions for now :thumbup:
