To get them to flower best switch to 12 hours and use the yellow-ish Flowering lights. Also add some kind of flowering ignitor, bud enhancer or Potassium - PK 13/14 is fine. Strange that an AUTO did not flower under 18 hours, so I guess they are not reallly Autoflowering .

Hello friend, 

 

 

If your plants are automatic (auto-flowering), you no need have to switch the light to 12/12.  With 18/6 or 24/0 is valid for automatics.

 


Please specify all data of the grow. 

 

Day of germination, photos if possible, etc ... to assess the problem :)

 

 

Have a nice weekend bro

I'm currently growing a Big Bang Auto and it has been under 24 hour light since day one and went into flower after about 3 weeks.

It does seem strange that they not auto flowering , did you buy the seeds yourself or were you given them? There is also a non auto big bang.

Like Jose says give as much info as you can, do you have original pakaging?

Peace

Lams

Yes it is strange but it is not the first time i hear about it, it happens soemtimes on the big bang auto, it seems 1 phenotype is a little less auto than the others so most of the time you will need to go to 12/12 with this pheno. but the good side of it is you can grow some nice yeild ;)

 

good luck man

Like Dust mentioned some pheno aren't fully auto, getting all ten with this pheno trait is highly unlikely but not impossible, abit like the lottery 14 million to one to win it but sometimes people do win it.

It may be the case you lucked out with this pack of seeds and got the non auto pheno in all 10 seeds, but lilke Dust said the yeild should be good. Hopefully there is some work to stabilise this strain, so it becomes fully automatic. ;)

Will you post your grow in a journal as it will be interesring to follow this grow?

Peace
