12hrs or not?

18 posts in this topic

high? everyone,i've just started 'think different' and 'magnum'. they,ve been in cutting cubboard under a t5 on24/7 for 2wks. both doing well. i can,t keep them in there due to lack of space. my only option is to move them into my 12/12 cubboard under a sunmaster dual spectrum light run by a digital ballast set on 660w.i've read that auto's grow best under an18-20hr on 4-6hrs off.i,m growing non autos in my 12/12 and due to my situation this is the only space i can move my autos into. will autos grow in 12/12 or am i wasting my time space? grow is organic in 50/50 light mix and alpha mix using growth technology ionic nutes and boost + bac stims.any feedback very welcome. others on the go are 'holy grail kush' and 'pineapple chunk'. love and peace.canny'.

Yur autos will grow but will be very stretchy and take a few extra weeks + yur buds will more then likely be fluffy as hell avoid if pos but if thts all uve got you might aswell

ta dj, no,my only options at present are those i described. anyway,if i did have the choice i'd rather run them in a dwc indoors than risk an english summer.

If they are only 2 weeks old then they're still vegging so 12/12 now could be disastrous.

That wouldn't be as much of a risk as 12/12 now.

Hey guys,

not trying to hijack the thread but...I have two magnum seedlings and a bubblegummer freebie seedling and was going to put to 12/12 for all once vegged enough. But after reading this im a bit confussed...should I continue my plan, or give away my bubblegummer nd just use the magnum, and leave on 18/6?

:headpain:

hi stoneman,if i had that choice and could do 18/6 i,d go with the magnum if only becaause its potentially the best auto yet produced with all the exciting new possible that conjours up.i like to try new strains and this by all acounts is a goodie.oh decisions,decisions.good luck.canny'.

Hi all , the hole thing with autos is about time not lights or cycles , if u put an auto into 12/12 from the start it will veg then flower in the same time as it would under 20/4 lights ,the yield will be less thats all , in my opinion :)

This is my StarRyder that was on 18/6 for 30 days then 12/12 for 6 weeks
