When should I harvest my outdoor autoflower? (pics)

Recommended Posts

I planted some Auto Critical Ogre  autoflowering seeds outdoors this year as an experiment.


Unfortunately I think I planted them about 4 weeks early and they didn't get enough light initially.


Breeder says 9-10 weeks indoor, they have been growing now for 9 weeks outdoor and have little buds with some red hairs - they look like they might be ready in a week or 2 but very small - should i harvest then or leave them longer? I have been told to ignore the red hairs and just wait until fan leaves go yellow and drop off?

Not this year. Early next year they might be nearly there or getting close..


In the meantime, hit them with a bit of potash or potassium.


really, that long for an autoflower? I was hoping to harvest before xmas. i'll post another pic in a couple weeks and see what you think


I've been giving them potash once a week since budding started, i think it was the first 4 weeks of low light that left me with small buds on the first plant but we'll see what happens

How long have they been showing signs of budding up? I see you mentioned they're 9 weeks old. I'd guess they've been budding 3-4 weeks?


Pics in a couple of weeks would help for sure.


They started budding after 4 weeks ...  they are actualy in the 9th week, it will be exactly 9 weeks since they popped on Saturday... so budding for almost 5 weeks, just started fattening up recently, i thought it was going to be a dud but maybe not - here is a pic from 13th November:
