Hi there @victor_Lion! Typically in these situations with Autoflowering plants there are two things that can happen. 1: You put it to a 12/12 light schedule and give it light educed flowering.. this happens when the dominant photo-period genetics come out and overtake the Recessive Autoflowering genetics. (this is not the case for you!) The 2nd situation is what happened in your case - You just had an extremely long vegetative stage. Most people would consider this a blessing with Autoflowering plants because it generally always ends with a higher yield! This happens every once in a while where the Auto plant has determined its environment is well better equipped for an extended veg state. Nothing to worry about friend this happens all the time (although you case is VERY long) and only ends in higher yields! I hope I was able to bring some insight into your late flowering stage Victor! Feel free to ask anything else you are curious about. :sunglasses:

All seeds are unique....like people. Even seeds of the same strain or variety or breeder will have differences. Also its a projected time frame the breeders give us...but i doubt they've grown all their strains under all conditions and climates etc....so they can't predict everything completely accurate. Also just personal opinion i feel like a lot of plants usually go a few weeks beyond their projected time.
Happy harvesting, your buds really are looking wicked, totally worth the wait.:green_heart::seedling::v:

In my experience the answer to your question is really as simple as “it happens”. I wish I could pretend I knew why. I’ve grown the same strain in the tent using the same soil, same feedings and the same training techniques and often find fairly radical differences, like one is slower to switch to flower than another. Personally I feel autoflowering, while very damn good these days, is not perfect. Meaning while they might produce similar looking, smelling and tasting buds, they won’t all grow the same. Some take a longer amount of time to mature than others (like people). But eventually they all grow to maturity. On a side note, I’ve also found the autos that take longer to switch to flower usually grow the largest and yield the most at the end. I’ll add one more note, don’t get over excited about “harvest in 8 weeks” or whatever the breeder claims, I find that is BS in reality most of the time. The plant will tell you when she’s ready to harvest if you know what to look for. Personally I find it common for autos to go 10-12 weeks (or more).

Not enough light and food wat u think was a long veg was a nutritional lock out that slowed down her growth and tbh your yields will be smaller now because of the deficiency 12 weeks you should be way futher along with the lack of light u gave even tho its a auto it still needs the resources to produce :+1::+1::writing_hand::writing_hand:

Hello ! It is perfectly normal, your plant is in flowering stage since 2 weeks and the first 2 weeks are called the stretch (sometimes 3 weeks sometimes 10 days , it depend on the strain ) : it is the period when you plant is gaining height before the full flowers starts. So now your plant will start to produce more and more pistils and the buds will start to get bigger during next weeks. I hope it will help you :grin::v::skin-tone-3:

Genetics + a good environment made her veg for longer than usual. Consider yourself lucky, the more veg time, the better yield you get in the end! Keep up the great work on these babies and happy growing :facepunch:

hey man, cream cookies is a girl scout cookies cross right? the good thing with GSCs is that they were short flowering, but the problem with GSCs is that they were low yield. So the cream cookies cross was made so that we could keep the taste of the GSCs but get a better yield. better yield means more veg and flower time, simple as that plus you're outdoors so add a couple weeks. You still probably have only four more weeks of flowering before the chop total 14 weeks 16 weeks max. It's all good ! :rocket:
