    Sure if it's outdoors in the right situation. Meaning getting full sun for those 12 hours. You could actually get a good yeild. I put my indoor plants in my spare room and open the windowand when about 4-5 hours of straight sun hits it, it perks up more than the lights make it. I do think lighting though is very important in starting the plant, I would at try to get some cfls even just 1 26 watt 6500 k cfl to start it per plant. Once you get to 4 leaves depending on where you got it you should be good.

    You might as well just put it outdoors if you can IMO.

    hello jap2020.most auto`s will flower whatever light cycle you put it on.on 12/12 you will probably just get a smaller yield than you would on 18/6 or more.i havnt grown any under 12/12 lights,so it would be interesting 2 see what kind of yield you get,compared with what the seed co.says it will produce.try and sort yer lights out tho,light is life 2 plants and obviously your yield will be bigger with more.can you keep me posted on the results if you keep lights at 12/12,i am thinking of growing regular along with auto`s. so at some point the auto`s will be on 12/12 light.i believe it tightens the buds up.i will keep an eye out 4 your thread,and results.good luck with your grow.

    Yes, you can grow auto plants just fine under 12-12 lighting.

    They just won't give you as much yield as you'd see under longer lighting.

    Don't forget, quality of light matters. 12 hours of good sunlight is probably better than 18 hours of underlit CFL.
