    Sure the plant will flower with any amount of light. The problem will be low light levels which mean low budd production. I say yes it will flower but with low yeilds. Try using CFLs much better then the window sill.

    i agree , not even worth the price of the seed if you dont even have a cfl,and even with 1 cfl it will still be low.autoflowers are good for people who want a quick crop with the proper lighting (HPS) Although my friends doing about 20 autos now under a 1000 watt and there are pretty cool to watch grow ,but i wouldent waste my time on them.

    see, this is a fairly common misconception - autoflowers will *flower at a certain height, age, root mass, etc., but whether those flowers will be big enough to smoke is what matters to us, right? winter sunlight is hardly enough for most things to stay alive under, much less flower. the best you're gonna get is a tea tip with some pistils growing out of it. keep in mind your plant is still going to know it's winter.
    think about it: nature wants things to flower to coincide with their pollinators showing up (ie. summer/fall). in the polar extremes, conditions at that time are 24h sun aka midnight sun, right? which means that autoflower strains evolved to flower under *too *much light as opposed to *not *enough, because "not enough light" happens in winter no matter which end of the planet you're on and who wants to flower then?
    that and plants in your window are your ticket to having a gun shoved in your face. the cops may be able to tell you don't have some lights blazing away in your basement (i/r scopes, etc.) but some thugs might be willing to drop by just to make sure.
