Veg stage and lighting (auto)

  1. Hello everyone.
    im about to grow my 1st autos and what i know is autos managed to flower after X weeks, so my question is does it really matters to put the lights on 18/6 during the veg stage? cuz i know that you put the lights on 18 hours to not make it flower.

    nwe grower
  2. for autos id suggest you keep the lights on 24/0 thru the whole grow.

  4. yeah autoflowering plants dont care about when the lights go off and on like a photoperiod one does.

  5. i see :/
    well thanks man
  6. The longer the lights are on, the more energy the plants receive, and the larger the yield, within reason. Most auto growers probably use 20-4, a lot 24-0, and a few 18-6.
    My opinion is that the only reason not to use 24-0 is if the plants are getting heat or nute stress.

  7. they dont need rest? they're not humans i know but don't you think i should give them some darkness?
  8. I just grew my first Autos and Im going to go ahead and agree with this statement. Here is my first Auto/Cocoa Grow of some Amnesia Haze Automatic from Nirvana Seeds on a full 24/0 light cycle, however I do keep only my Veg switches on during the Veg stage obviously, then switch the bloom on as well once I see flowers and I think the plant can handle it. They are now about 2 weeks out from Harvest and I hit them with some AN Flawless Finish today, so far so good. I have some Lemon OG Auto from Seedsman Seeds that are also going to be on a full 24 as well. It seems to be the best way to go for Ruderalis Genotypes.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  9. God bless your girls:judgekneel: looking sexy, how old are they?
  10. I know people say 24/0 is where its at, but my experience has shown faster growth with a dark period. I run 19/5 the whole run and rarely get less than 4oz per plant.

  11. Alright ppl thanks for everyone who shared his experience with autos, im definitely not going to put them under 12/12.
    happy grow everyone. :Love-Plant:
  12. 24/0 is best for the plants. 20/4 is best for the grower. Long debated google cannabis c3 plant. Needs no darkness. You get more from an underpowered light 24/0. If you have a big light 20/4 can cool things off for a while and give you a break. In summer mine goes off noon to 4 pm. Winter it keeps me warm 24/0. Light is everything to an auto.
