True Auto strains

Question

Greetings all

 

I've read of so called autos that are actually fast

flower, still needing 16/8 to actually induce flower.

 

I would really like to try my hand at a true auto that i can run 24hrs lights on.

Anyone have experience with true autos?

 

Would really appreciate your advice on breeders and strains.

What's up man... Where are you finding such autos? 

Sounds like some nob is trying his luck at selling seeds without too much knowledge about what is what. 

An auto cannot be anything other than an auto... If it needs any sort of light schedule to induce flowering... It's a photo period plant. 

So even tho they are fast... I'm guessing in flowering... It's still better to grow plants that flower under 12h light. 

Hope that helps a bit! Oh and take a look at the vendors section on the forum... You cannot grow wrong with those breeders!

These guys can sort you out with true autos... Or your flavor photo period

I do believe any auto left on 24hrs light schedule will not flower 🤔 I've seen some growers actually do this to keep an auto mother plant and then grow out the cuttings as one would a standard auto. One way of keeping a fire auto strain in your stable.

Now I've read or seen guys grow them under 24h lights, no issues, very interesting.

Autos have nothing to do with light cycle , its a genetic code . Once the plants reaches a certain genetic age it will flower .

No plant likes 24/7. plants need to sleep , so even though they will flower under 24/7 light there's no way they plant will ever be able to utilize all that light and go into sleep mode so you really just wasting money running lights for 24/7 . This will invariably induce a small amount of stress , I have always had best results with autos under 18/6

Just my 2 cents

If you look at what is happening is the usa none of them grow auto's indoors. The only reason they grow autos is to get multiple harvests outside with out having to do light deprivation. If you want to waist money on electricity by all means grow them indoors. If not just run photo period plants at 12/12 indoors and you pretty much have an auto flowering plant. Auto flowering plants trigger flowering when they become root bound or when the roots hit the side of your container. I have seen massive auto's in 50l pots. My 2c's wait another month then plant your autos outdoors and harvest end on november.
