5 autos 3 strains growing and started all the same time. I am at week 5 and all except one are showing flowering.
If I change the light schedule from 18-6 to 12-12, would that hurt the rest or stunt whats already flowering? or just continue and make room

I wouldn't change anything they are auto's when they are ready to go they will just start flowering . Sometimes the same strain will flower differently , some plants mature faster then others as a result when this happens with auto's they will start flowering . Regardless if you change the lights or not the plant that's in flower will continue to do so . They're designed to flower upon maturity . You can try to slow it down with some lst but at this point I'm pretty sure its just going to do its thing ! There's absolutely nothing wrong with your garden tho your doing really well and I'd like to say keep up the good work ! :D I hope this information helps you to understand a bit better how plant maturity plays a big part in the autoflowering world . - Happy Growing!

Hi, Go on like now, givng your Plants 18hours of light. That is the minumum for automatic plants to grow very nice and vigor and develop sweet flowers. I wont cut the light down to 12 12.. thats only for photoperiods a sign to go into flower. Automatics dont need that light cylce. you can give them 20 hours or even 24 hours of light( but i wont recommend 24 hours).

Lowering the light hours will not hurt the plants, but it will make them develop slower, for the simple fact that they will have less light to take advantage of. I would wait a week or two before doing anything, just to see if it starts flowering or not. Even then you would have to make a decision: (a) keep the 4 autos that are flowering and cull the other; (b) Let the AK47 veg while the other 4 finish flowering and then let it go to 12/12 on it's own (would require some training); (c) lower the lights to 12/12 so everything flowers at the same time.
