Newbie question on photoperiods

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by kirrax, May 11, 2011.

  1. I'm planning a grow and planning to end up with 4 plants in a 4sqft grow area. The strains are AK48, 60 Day Wonder, Sugar Mango Ryder, and G13 Seeds Purple Haze. All the strains are Feminized, and all the strains are autoflowering except for the Purple Haze. So as for my question, I'm wondering if it is feasible to have all four plants under the same photoperiod, which would of course be designated by the Purples needs. I assume since the auto flowers are described as quicker flowering strains, that by the time the Purple needs to be switched to 12/12, that the change in photoperiod wouldn't hurt the AF's. I know that an AF strain will flower regardless of the photoperiod, but is it possible to trigger early flowering by switching to 12/12 in an AF strain? I'm still completely new to growing, and would love any input you guys have.
  2. Maybe you should consider starting the purple haze like a month into the AF's grow then in a 4-5 weeks when your AF's are finished just flip to 12/12.
  3. Actually after thinking about it more, I was planning on that before I read this post, that way I can clone out the Haze and not have to order seeds for my second grow :)
