Super early autoflowers taking way to long to flower


New Member
So I'm in the midst of my first grow ever and I'm concerned because I bought some super early auto flowers that were supposed to be done in 2-2.5 months from germination to harvest. They germinated on 4/21 and have been doing really well but are just now showing signs of flowering even though they are technically supposed to be done soon. I sexed them about a month ago and have 4 females. They are under 24 hours of light.

Can you guys take a look and confirm that they are indeed flowering? I just want to make sure it's not something I did causing them to flower so late.Not sure if I should switch their lighting? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you!

I see pistils...looks fem to me. The lighting cycle can definitely use some tweaking. I'd say flip to 12/12 or even as little as 10 on.

Yes. On occasion a auto needs to be flipped to a 12-12 schedule to get to flower. After that turn it up to a 18-6 schedule.

never trust the time frame on what the flowering is "supposed to be" as a lot of the time its only an average time some take longer some start earlier, just let those girls go under the 24/0 or 18/6 and they will finish up nicely

i wouldn't switch it to 12/12 but i would switch it to 18/6.. if it's not stable enough it will never flower under 24/0 even if it has shown sex...even some top breeders don't have some of their autos stable enough to flower under 24/0
