Auto not flowering or am I being impatient
Hey guys I’m in week 7 of this northern lights auto from Seedsman and with my limited knowledge I would have thought I’d have some pistols by now. I thought it was starting to flower but just keep growing new leaves. I was thinking of leaving it for a week to see happens if still no pistols I was goin the switch light schedule from 18/6 too 12/12 to see if that will encourage it to flower. Am I just being impatient. This is my first ever grow so wasn’t sure if this is normal? Thanks again for any advice
Wish I had a solid answer for you. The growing tips look a little like they are trying to initiate bloom, the leaves on the tops are getting thin, but there surely aren’t pistils showing. She will bloom out under 12/12 if you choose to go that route. My very first auto, a Pineapple Express, took forever to flower and even longer to finish. Honestly don’t know why but I know I was over feeding her and I was running under lower power lights to what I use now. Too much nitrogen and not enough potassium can prolong veg but I’m not certain if that is your issue either. Hopefully some other growers will see this and might offer ideas too.
Hey buddy had to check my book of notes , Ran the exact strain and yes she took 16 week ,not a bad thing ,she yielded like a photo, always with the positive waves 🏄♂️
is this a Kelly’s Heroes reference lol?
whats your light ?
Thanks for the response guys. Ok so I think I’ll leave it as is atm. I’m using a vipaspecta 300, I’m hoping to upgrade in the near future but this is all I have for now.
Evening fellow growers it’s me again 🙈🙈🙈. I’m now on week 11 (day 72) and I do have plenty of pistols and have done for a few weeks now but no actual buds, is this right or do I have a problem. I was expecting too see some actual buds by now but being my first plant I’m not sure if I’m just being impatient. She’s defo trying but doesn’t seem to develop flower she just keeps growing 😂😂😂. Could my light not be powerful enough? I’m using a vipraspectra 300
The plant looks happy and healthy, it just wants to take its time. It feels like an eternity on your first plant but she will get there.
wicked plant dude I can't help as I'm new to this myself but wicked plant/plants
That looks like a nice healthy plant and not far off being ready to rock.
I have grown a few Northern Lights auto's, and they tend to take their time flowering. I'd say your plant whilst being an auto is basically content to bulk up before it feels the need to push on into flowering. It will go when it's ready and to me, it looks about ready to make that switch itself. I wouldn't go stressing it, just let it do its thing.
I have seen all kinds of claims on Northern Lights flowering times etc. They just go when they are ready and take a while in flower as well. It will be worth it in the end as they can put on a fair bit of mass during flower. They just take their sweet time to do so.
Here are a few pics of RQS Northern Lights autos I grew a while back. Two plants took up most of a 4x4 tent with just enough room for two other young ones in the back of the tent. There is a little burn you can see on the bud pic. But I push them kind of hard once they start putting on any mass.
Great looking plant. Having a late bloomer is much better than having it flower early and ending up with a midget plant (sorry, I mean little plant) with little yield.
my new light arrived today TS1000. can i set this up now or am i best to leave it as it is untill this one is done? will the change affect it at all?
I would add it if it was doing nothing 😉 might aswell push them a little harder if they can take it
If it's a big step up in power/light, then maybe just set your lights a little further away for the first few
I don’t have any more height room but the marshydro does have a dimmer so I’ll just set that down a bit so hopefully that works. Thanks all for the advice
We’re set up people. Hopefully I have enough height room🙈🙈🙈.
