    Researched Autogrow strains and decided on 60 Day Wonder

    Yields of 20-40g suggested

    Ordered 1 Seed ($25 with s&h) from http://www.marijuana-seeds-canada.com/

    Arrived 10 Days Later - No Problems - Discreet Package - Seed Packaging

    Easy and Quick Germination

    CFL for first 15 days - 400w MH for Next 15 - Switching to 400w HPS and 12/12 for Next 30 (to start other girls)

    Concerns: Reports of poor taste quality; Lower than expected yield - Will keep you posted

    I would maybe start em on 400w mh sooner. Just see how quick they grow!

    Thanks - The MH does make a BIG Diff. - Used the CFL at the start because I wasn't sure and didn't want to risk a valuable seedling - how much earlier would u suggest? A Week? or Right from the start? IF this one works out I may try another @ some point.

    don't switch to 12/12 its an autoflower so leave them on 24/0 or 18/6. the only reason people switch to 12/12 is because they are growing photoperiod plants and need the reduction in light time to force flowering. if you switch to 12/12 you'll drastically cut down on your yield. also i'd put them under an HPS after 14 days as they'll start showing around that same time. have 2 60-day wonders going now along with a La Diva and an Onyx.

    Understand the reasoning (my first 60 Day Wonder Grow NOT my first Grow) but as I stated in my original post the 12/12 was for the benefit of the other 6 Girls - If the 60 Day yield goes down, its unfortunate but necessary. My next attempt @ 60 Days Wonder will allow for full 60 Days of 18/6 under 400w HPS from start to finish just to compare. Will post results.

    didn't realize you had others growing as well. makes sense i guess, but why waste good seeds like that when you've got 6 others going.

    im doing the same. i got the seed for free. and its growing with my white russians. its a mikromachine. and on the website. it says to use 12/12. its wierd idk. but i dont think it will yield less...may just take longer to finish.

    I'm confused isn't the whole point of the auto-flowering strain so that you don't have to switch from 24/0, 20/4, or 18/6, whichever cycle you prefer for you veg stage to a 12/12 cycle for flowering. If it is truly an auto strain all you need to do is switch your MH bulb to HPS when the plant begins to show signs of flowering and all without having to change your timers. Nvm should have kept reading the thread I guess, so ur doing the 12/12 cycle for your strains that aren't auto-flowering gotcha. Yeah actually that would be kinda interesting to see the diff in a reg strain vs. an auto flowering strain.

    IDK from what I've read about auto strains it seems that you might be sacrificing overall yield in order to decrease the time needed to reach maturity. Hey and since they r inbred does that mean that like with some inbred ppl it will come out with some janky deformity growing out da stem, AAHAHHHH maybe an eyeball will open up on the tip of the cola so u know its ready, ya know like dat thing on da turkey dat pops out when its cooked. The eyeball would be like that so u know when its time to harvest!!!!! Sorry I just took a big bong rip.


    MMMmmmhhmmmmmmmm Chocolate, DOH!!!!!!!!!!!! BART!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    More yield on a 12/12 cycle with auto-flowering strains seriously? Now is that for both veg and flowering stages u do a 12/12 cycle, or just flowering. If that's that case doesn't it defeat the purpose of the auto strains don't u think u could get more yield if u just went with more traditional strains.

    you have to be joking of course?

    more yield over what doing them in the dark? no way will 12/12 produce more than 24/0 or 18/6. going 12/12 is to get a photoperiod plant to flower nothing else. Auto's do that automatically thus the term auto-flower.

    Dont waste time with CFL because autos are having a very short veg. period comparing to classic seeds. And you cant define the exact date of vegatative period ending thats why its better for you to let them suck more light. some even dont use mh bulp, from begining till the end hps only.

    This is my first auto - just testing the waters - everything is a learning experience - ideally I would have started them earlier and keep them on 18/6 until the auto was ready (something to smoke while waiting for the others) and then switched to 12/12 but alas I am under certain time constraints that do not allow that at this time - next time - 400w HPS 20/4 right out of the gate, see what this baby can do.
