HueyBrown started grow question 3 years ago
She had a slow start but now I am noticing that there's big space between the nodes and she doesn't have a lot of leaves when I compare to other NL Auto and she has a lot of white pistils, is she really on flowering stage? Should I do something to increase the number of leaves

Hi @HueyBrown! Window growing is always full of challenges :) Your plant has definitely entered flowering stage, the space between the nodes is due to the "stretch" phase. She's not going to produce big leaves anymore, only sugar leaves (bud tiny leaves) from now on. So I would recommend not to defoliate anymore, she's going to need those leaves to handle photosynthesis and help buds to expand. Next time, give it a bigger and better container, such as AirPot or SmartPot, your rootzone will then be able to breath, roots will auto-prune themselves instead of being in a situation of rootbound, and this will help you to prevent overwatering. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

Stress slows down auto's quite a bit, but it is entirely possible you have 2 different pheno's as well. I wouldn't worry about it too much and just focus on keeping the plant healthy the rest of flowering. This is the time where the plants start to get picky about nutrients and everything else. Good luck and happy growing!! :muscle::muscle:

It looks good! those are preflowers and it's starting it's node flowering period. Not much you can do on that node spacing. Well more sunny spot maybe..? One thing you could add at this point when readying for flowering is early PK-boost. Just 1/5 of normail dosage and once only with watering. It helps the flowering transition and it could help plant form more flowers to come. :+1:

Yep. Thats a flower. Not much you can do but learn next time. Autos hate stress. When they stress, they immediately flower and die.

At this point there is very little that you can do. The plant remained small because you kept it in a 1.5 liters pot, you might want to try to up pot it and it will grow some more The big spaces between the nodes is a result of low temperatures; when they are below 23°C, the grow rate slows down to a crawl, additionally if the night temperature if a lot lower than the day, the inter nodal space increases. A bigger pot and nicer temperatures will do wonders for your results next time.

Hi there Mate firstly your plant is showing her preflowers which means she is just beginning to transition into flowering.
During this time your plant will also begin to stretch ( basically building a strong framework to hold the flowers)
And during stretch some plants actually double in size.
Having looked at your situation your plant is already showing signs of inadequate light (internodal spacing longer than ideal)
Could you possibly add some supplemental light to the plant during the daylight times ?? Even a small cfl could help with yields
Hope this helps mate
