Zkittlez Auto Feminized --- Runt??

Post by TommyT »

This Zkittlez Auto Feminized plant is not doing what I expect her to do.
She is so small. Does anyone have experience with these? Is she just a runt?
I started her on 01/01/2020. I moved her to 12/12 light on 02/15/2020 She is 10 weeks old and has been in flower for 3 weeks in the picture. She hasn't changed much since. (I'm at work and can update pic when I get home)
The breeder says:
FLOWERING TIME: 9 weeks from germination
Any insight would be helpful.
This is the plant from my diary viewtopic.php?f=111&t=4771

The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.

Thank You Nanook for the reply. I really appreciate it.

I realized after it was too late that I switched to 12/12 about two weeks too early. She was supposed to auto switch at 9 weeks and I manually switched her to 12/12 at 7 weeks.
I wonder if I stunted her.
I'll just let her grow till I harvest the Chem OG next to her. Just to see what happens.
Then my room will be empty and I'll give it a good cleaning before starting anything else.

Autos actually switch from veg to flower around the four week mark all on their own. No need to change light schedule up. That nine weeks for this strain is the whole grow, but it seems most autos for non-professional setups, end up in the ten-twelve week range. I had a really runty looking RQS NL auto end up putting out a decent amount of fat dense flowers. A real pain to trim though.

It's good to know that there is such a things as an auto runt. This is the very first auto I've ever grown. LOL maybe it's a sign.
