Auto stopped growing?

Discussion in 'Absolute Beginners' started by T0aster, Dec 8, 2017.

  1. Hey all!

    First time growing with an auto strain (female seeds auto speed bud). Almost a month ago she started showing preflower pistils and they are at just about every node. She stretched like she should (doubled in size in about 2 weeks)later butw she is just kinda chilling for the last week and change. No swelling. No popcorn bud. No flowering tops. Just stopped. They went through a spell where I lost heat during the strectch and temps were in the high 50s which I know probably had some negative effect. Any advice? Should I just let it play out or try to go 12/12 in case it has some genetic defect? I've read that in some rare cases there are 120 day phenos which would be unfortunate since I got this as a quick flower plant lol.

    Im probably being a total noob but the switch was so quick when I flowered my last photo to actually producing buds..

    Growing under a vipar 300 and 3k qb120.
    Smart pot. Ffof and ff nutes. 20/4 light cycle. 5.8ph. Hanging in the low to mid 70s in my grow area.

    Just popped a RQS critical photo just in case this one shits the bed.

  2. They are pretty finicky sometimes. I just had one that accidentally got topped and it went from being a 60 day straight to a 90 day strain. It sucks but happens. Best thing to do is start another auto while waiting for that one to start back up.

    It's not really as yellow as it looks. It's the light from the QB hitting part and the blurple hitting part making it look weird

  4. The leaves look very thin and the plants are tree like so it's a sativa and that's probably why it's taking time. I would play it out and see how she goes. The plant looks healthy though nice job man.

  6. Pushed a few more pistils but still very much in a holding pattern. Bloom nutes. I germed a photo period in case I need to can this one. Have a separate tent I can keep it in if I need to change light cycles before this thing is done.

  8. Some sativa strains take a lil longer to flower brother . Hell even the photos I'm growing now did that shit to me. But all around it made me happy lol . The second pic is the one that took two extra weeks to start properly [​IMG][​IMG]

  14. Ya still
    still growing getting top heavy now, like you let it grow to tall before I switched, think it was breed to grow under netting. It is frosty and smells great

  17. I appreciate it guys. My dumb ass popped a photo and I thought I could get by with one light in each if I needed to switch 12/12 but it's gotten too big. I may just grow my photo under 12/12 and get what I get from it.
