    HELP! What do I do?

    I had to move two autos, started 15 July, out of my tent. One of those plants I gave away and the other has been outside. This plant I have outside will not finish before the chill hits in October. I can protect it from frost by placing her near structures and overhangs and even bring it in the house, but is it worth it. It is a very healthy plant that I felt was stunted because it was transplanted from a pot with2 in it. I regret not having a pic but she is about 28 inches tall and looks like a tree.
    What is my best bet as there is no way I can get her under lights. The worst thing I am willing to do is bring her in when frost is in the forecast and keep her in the autumnal sun,
    How about it?

    From what I have read autos should have at least 18 hours of light to finish. If you don't have another grow light, get a cheap 4 foot LED shop light. Better than nothing. As far as the cold goes, rock and hard place, if the frost comes it will need to be moved inside or protected by something, lest it succumb to jack frost.
    Don't worry, be happy, grow sticky buds.

      I can move it from the backyard to my kitchen table with a small amount of effort and I have such a light in the kitchen. Nature provides protection from early frost with overhanging objects, like in my case a Holly tree and proximity to my house. I have a small light made from two 4x4 panels, I could mount it so it only lit up a portion of the plant to see what a difference it makes in the buds. I think these girls may have 6 weeks to maturity at the most according to ILGM, who sold me the seeds.

    How about building a little hot house for it? Heavy mil plastic and 1x2's will make you a great box. Something you can put against your house, even.

      Indeed that is something to consider as the back of the house faces east. This is not in accordance with state customs, you know.

      Give the housing inspector a handle of Jack Daniels to look the other way. And show him pictures of himself on that night he did that thing at that spot.
      South facing walls get more light than any, if it is unobstructed.

    @Gingerbeard​ My neighborhood is made of blocks of 2 story row houses with alleys in the back. I am going go with the kitchen table under 2 florescent lights and a small grow light panel

    I think I am seeing the beginning of buds. I should know better in the morning. The plant is starting its ninth week and I was starting to get antsy. When I brought the plant back into the house earlier this evening I gave it a good looking over. I'll admit to hitting my vape not long after my feet hit the floor and pretty much stick at it all the day, but there are posts that I absolutely don't understand.

      Realize the company you are keeping. Trying to keep a straight train of thought can be a real struggle!
      Do you think any of it were to make more sense in person?

    This plant is at least a week ahead of its sisters who have not shown buds yet. The only real difference is the influence of the Sun and the 40 watts of LED she gets in my kitchen. Would a change light times trigger autos, has it happened you, reader of this?

      Yes. Everyone has experienced some sort of what you probably have going on, in different ways. Iff all variables are equal, your problems are genetic. When something just doesn't have an answer, it's genetic.
      Another option is you didn't mention something you didn't think important. Not that you did. Just that you might. It happens.
      Again, iff all things are equal. The only thing(s) that is/are not equal is/are genetics.

        The plant looks good and I am waiting for my inside outside plant's buds to stack, "stack" how doya like that word, I picked it up yesterday and thought I better use it before I forget it. I can't expect too much because it is only getting 6 hours sunlight and as much as another 18 hrs 40 watts LED. It could be a study if the upper buds are better than the lower buds. I am having a problem attaching my camera pictures,

          Right on. This might need a new thread from you SF. A lot of people have been commenting on this in different threads.

          Gingerbeard That sounds like a good idea. I'll make a new thread to collect reports of issues.
