Light Chart for Autos

I’m brand new. Nuff said. Optimum light – measurements/charts available? Where? I do better learning from visual charts. Does it differ per stage much? Going to do 24/0

Hi @GrnyGrows lots of questions but there are answers here,check out all the video tutorials on this site…I am currently finishing up a grow for the first time with Auto’s. I ran 24/0 at the beginning and then went to 20/4 about half way thru and now I have them on 12/12. I grow in hydro and it my setup I think they need the rest more

@GrnyGrows these are pretty much minimal of what’s needed. Up from here means a little more produced at a higher cost in electricity. i use 18/6

Why did you go all the way to 12/12 with your autos?

@GrnyGrows I went to 12/12 in my hydro set up for a few reasons, this is my only auto grow and only 3 plants

  1. Normal light cycle for flower
  2. had one auto at 8 weeks no sign of flower changed light 12/12 and 2 days later she starts to flower
  3. cause I saw better growth as when I had it at 24/0 then 20/4, never went to 18/6

@GrnyGrows well I went back to 20/4 since I stopped seeing bud growth and boom they are growing again. I think I may have confused myself because when I trimmed them they stopped growing under 20/4 lighting and when I put the lights to 12/12 they appeared to bounce back faster after the trim but then after a few days I could see slower growth. At this point I shouldn’t have to trim much if anything anymore so I am staying at 20/4 lighting. Maybe after a heavy trim with auto you help her by cutting lights back and then after she recovers back to regular lighting…not sure since this is my only experience with auto

Soon as I get seeds I’m gonna try my hand at autos. Will be watching for any tidbits I can pick up.
