        Any stray light getting to them in their dark spell? Backlight PowerPoints, LED screens. Is your timer analog or digital?

          As far as I can tell, no stray lights.
          Will remove backlighted LED thermometer from the tent.
          Analog timer located outside the tent.

            Check your timer. Change to a wifi PowerPoint you can automate ir just simply set a schedule at the power outlet. Simple and almost fail-safe. I use em here and they are rock solid reliable

            Should I fertilize using transition or flowering dose?

              If the color is as per the photo then I'd keep veg nutes up at this stage, it looks a fraction low in N but nothing to worry about. Maybe give them calmag nitrate suppliment and keep that up through the transition. Monitor color of leaves, look for lower ones darkening up especially at the tips first, that will be a sign to go full bloom and no added nitrates or very little

            Raise the lights on time to 18/6 and see if that doesn't induce flowering.

              I had a similar issue with GSC autos from ILGM. 10 weeks into growth and it hadn't even started flowering. Could just be a bad cross

                The one thing you can count on with Autos is them being unpredictable. lol. If its an auto a light leak shouldn't be a problem, thats the only reason I can see to grow an auto flower. How long has it been under 12/12? If your not giving it any bloom nutes I can understand not seeing any preflower, until 3 weeks into 12/12 I am going to go out on a limb here and say, any auto flower that hasn't shown signs of flower at 12 weeks isnt an auto so I would treat it as a photo period. If it doesnt show signs of flower after 3 weeks of 12/12 it may be hemp.
                Is it stretching?

                  Beginning 3rd week of 12/12 and no stretching, but it sure could use some thinning out.

                  Well that is odd, who is the breeder?

                I grow autos because of the light requirements. I can grow different strains in the same tent as well as plants that are in different stages of maturity and not be concerned about changing or different light schedules. I am admittedly not a perfectionist. -tom

                  No pistils, nothing? Would like to know if it flowers, LSD-25 seems like a cool strain I was interested in trying. Maybe I'll just get the photo LSD

                    Its odd and I know its tough to call it quits on one. If you do decide to give up on it keep a clone for the hell of it just to see what happens. Photo's and auto seeds getting mixed is not that uncommon but not flowering under 12/12 for 3 weeks is unusual IMO

                  Well into its 18th week since germination, with no signs of flowering, I was about to give up on this disappointing lady but much to my surprise she presented me with pistils two days ago. Many pistils. Nice and white. So now I'm gonna get started on thinning her out in order to get airflow and light penetration. I'm not 100% on whether she wil continue to flourish but I'll put her back on 18/6 lights and week 5 transitional nute recipe while hoping for the best. Long, strange trip, eh? -tom

                    I would not go back to 18/6, 14/10 maybe, but IF its really a photo it'll reveg and cost you about 6 weeks.

                  Some times you have to let them go just to see whats going to happen, other times you have to give up. I think it all depends on how full your jars are.
                  But I would leave it on 12/12

                    Here she is in all her current glory. I suspect she went into a re-veg since there are loads of new leaves on the lower parts of the branches.
                    I applied LST to open up a path for light penetration and did a lot of trimming of the new growth. Looks as though the older flowers will
                    yield some average sized buds, which is more than I expected a few weeks ago. It's my first re-veg so I'm not certain how to proceed with
                    caring for her. Lighting is 12/12 and nutes are full flower, GH 3part, week 7. -tom

                      She's trying and that's all that matters.....though Idk how she'll smoke. Every grow completed is more knowledge gained. The reveg is a bit of a concern. You must have some major light leak for that much to happen. Unless you address the light leak, no matter what you do will end up like this. It's hard to tell from this picture if it's a reveg or if she's really stressed and might be herming like Bluey mentioned. You can keep going forward but if she did reveg like you suspect then you're basically back at week 1 of bloom so i would treat her as a flowering plant....but in the state that she is in, i would never proceed to flowering. You'll end up with a 8th of meh for all the effort. It's your call in the end. I would recommend popping some more magic beans and start preparing for a more successful grow.
