Do you have any experience with autos that did not automatically flower under 20/4 and switched to 12/12 for flower?

Hi yes.. waited for almost 5 weeks on 20/4 and nothing in flower department. Then I flipped 12/12 and after week flowering started. So maybe you should flip if space is issue.. anyway they could need some more time than usually after bending them under net. Low stress but stress and it takes flower couple days further when plant recovers. Hope this help!
Happy Growing! *PEACE*

It never happens to me but I am growing my autos under a 12/12 light schedule. I saw serval diaries with Autoflowering strains that in fact requires a 12/12 schedule , It is due to the fact that to obtain a potent Autoflowering strain you need to cross a Ruderalis with the auto gene to a Sativa/ Indica or an Hybrid with the genes responsible from the thc production ( ruderalis have very low thc level ) And sometimes the photoperiodic gene can be dominant ( generally in the 3rd generation: F3 ) and that is your case. Just flip to 12/12 and you'll harvest a nice fake autoflower :blush::+1:
