Best light schedule for auto-flowering strains?

by Nebula Haze

Cannabis strains have two main stages of life, the vegetative (first) stage, and the flowering (second) stage. Think of them as the "children" and "adult" stages of marijuana growth.

Most strains of marijuana (photoperiod strains) rely on the amount of light, or their light schedule, to determine when to start making buds. Generally, if a marijuana plant receives 14 hours of light a day or more, it will stay in the vegetative stage (it will focus more on growing leaves and stems without any buds).
