Pruning autos

So I have a couple snowryder autos outside one is 4’ the other is 5.5’ tall. I am shocked it also has many branches, would you all still prune the bottom branches of the plant? A lot bigger than the other autos I’ve grown? The buds aren’t as fat on the taller one but there are more bud spots. Anyways I’m a newb so forgive me.

I’d let it do it’s thang you go and start stressing it it might make it unhappy are these super autos or something seems like a large plant for an auto ( pics would help) if it’s into flower I wouldn’t fuck with it.

Are you sure those are Autoflowers?

Autoflowers can get that tall…but rarely.

Did you get the seeds right from a breeder…or through a friend? From what I was able to find online…two things…First, its an Indica dominant strain…meaning it should be shorter… second…Short stuff seeds refers to the Snowryder as a dwarf variety…

How long ago did you plant them? For seedling to finish is under 70 days. That is a lot of growth in that time

I grew some of Reikox ghost toof x sugar black rose autos and they got huge even with topping and pruning them. Right at 5’ tall and 3 of them packed a 4x4

My mother had a 2 that are extra large like that. There sibling all finished long ago. Sometimes autos will act as a photo period plant. I’ve seen it several times.

Sorry if I posted this earlier in this thread…

Autos can be all over the map size wise…just depends on how much sativa has been bred in to delay the the onset of flowering…

Look at the difference in these three autos all planted at the same time…

I have two autos that are easily 6 foot under my 1000 watt hps. They are green headband. They seem to be finishing early, really alot of fluff. Think I’m going to make some ice hash out of it. I’ve done some trimming but that was initially a week into flower it needed some leaves gone, now it seems to be starting to finish, and the buds like I said sadly didn’t get big.

Yea the short one is packing in more it seems. I wish I had started more photos to have this area filled with those I only have 1GB photo had two but one was male, I have an indoor setup ready to go except light which I’m getting in less than a week! So I’ll be poking around here for indoor tips soon.

Yeah, I’ve known Fluff since he was a punk kid. I’d hoped he’d grow out of it but after 11 years I’m thinking prolly not. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
