Is it okay to grow Auto seedlings in a tent on 12/12 schedule?

I have a large photo plant taking up my tent. It is on a 12/12 schedule flowering now

I sprouted 2 Autos but they are too small to put outdoors in the 95 F heat.

So is it okay to keep them in the tent with 12 hours of darkness?

Yes, but for optimum results, make sure you are meeting DLI requirements and making up the difference with intensity if possible.


Ok good point. I have them in the shade of the big photo so that might be fine if it was 18/6 but not necessarily 12/12. Will check on that right now

Also, will they stretch more with those more hours of darkness?

Thanks in advance!

I don’t think so. Excessive stretching is usually an intensity issue rather than a duration issue.

Good point.


You can always elevate the two smaller plants to increase the intensity making the 12/12 work.
