    Autos- modified manifold with high stress training- What do you think?

    The first pix is of 2 plants that sprouted 7 weeks ago, Alcopolco gold photos (supposedly). Clones in solo cups in green container. Second pix close up. Third pix different strain same age. Yesterday they were defoliated and stress trained some more. 24 hours later, what looks like bud flowers on the first two plants. I have never grown auto before so don't have experience on the details of what they look like. They sure look like autos that are starting to flower to me, and the timing is correct. What do you think? are they autos? If they are, Here is the answer to the question- can autos be manifolded and high stress trained?

    Yes they can i've seen many autoflower photos done that way. I just don't do manifolds with them.

        I thought high stress training on autos was a no no? I’m germinating 2 ak47 autos and wasn’t going to touch them but this might change my mind. Keep us posted can’t wait to see how it turns out

          So did I. These were supposed to be photos. Will see what happens.

        yeah there have been pictures on IG of autos as manifolds for a long time, breeders use the pics to sell their seeds even though it's kind of a dice roll because success all depends on the strain and the environment the plant's growing in. Some strains can take it, some not. Your timing has to be near perfect to be sure you're executing the first steps during veg state of an auto, not during transition.

          Update- There has been no new growth on these except for the buds. Do autos stretch like photos?

            Give them time to recover this may of slowed them down. Yes autos will stretch just on a smaller scale.

          Yes they will stretch, they seem to go into a shift for about 4-5 days.
          I see the limbs getting thicker and they really start to stiffen up to support those fat ass colas!

            Perhaps we are seeing proof that we shouldn’t play with autos just let em go lol

              Update on the mystery autos. They are growing like weeds with flowers. Switch to bloom nutrients? Click image for larger version
