    HELP! First time Autoflower

    I'm growing my first auto flower, Mystic Blue-Intica, my plant is healthy, huge (outgrowing my space bucket) and is now 6 weeks old, but has no signs of flowering. According to everything I've read about auto flowers it should start flowering at 4 to 6 weeks. Any feedback on this subject will be helpful.

    Welcome to the forum Rookieweeder glad to have ya. Folks here love the weed pics so a photo of your plant is helpful. Got that right it should of started flowering by now but autos are sometimes " turds " who won't do as they should. If you had a light source for MJ and a dark closet for the light you could try putting under 12/12 see if she starts to flower? But then again...…..seed may be a photo not auto mistake by seed distributor?

      Will switch my lighting to 12/12, if this kick starts the flowering process, any idea how many days before it might show signs of flowering? At the rate it's growing I may have to order a tent. I trimmed all the main fan leaves 5 days ago because it's out growing my bucket and know it's twice the size, could that have something to do with it not flowering and going all to growth?

    It should have pistils popping out for sure by now - treat it as a photoperiod plant.

      All my autos were flowering at 3 weeks, even the girl that was to go 120+ days. I agree you may have a photo plant, it has happened.

        What's the odds of ordering 10 auto seeds and the first one I planted is photo? My goal was to harvest numerous plants with shorter harvest time so I could have the 2 oz I need to finally use my Magic Butter machine!!!!

        Heres the question, how many of the other 9 are also photo? Mistakes happen,, I take it they are the same strain,,,
        You can manage them, just veg them a short time (3 to 5 weeks) and go 12/12s once they are tall enuf for you. (remember stretch)

        I ordered 5 ea of auto Blue Mystic & No Lites, will start a No Lites next to see what I get. I have a grow tent on order cause my plant is know beyond LST and bigger than my 5 gal bucket, such a problem to have :-). Thank you for your advise

      Rookieweeder after changing light to 12/12 plant "should" show preflower less than 14days, often in less than 7 from my experience. A picture would be helpful but you say you took a lot of fan leaf off? And that sure sounds like you got a photo instead of auto.

        Since I thought is was a auto like I ordered, I didn't top it or do any LST as suggested. Whatever it is, it is one happy plant. Will keep you posted, thanks for info.

        ordered from Nirvana, guess I'll have to be patient longer with photos

      So its pretty clear my Blue Mystic auto flower is not what I ordered. I have trimmed the fan leaves 3 times now because it was overgrowing my space bucket. I now have it in a tent and have had the lights switched to 12/12 for 12 days and still no signs of flowering, just new growth everywhere. Any suggestions????
