Even though they are autos they still need 18 hours of light a day to reach their true potential...If you slack on the amount of light you will hurt your yield....you cld probably get by with 16 if your electric bill is a problem but I go with 18 on 6 off...I think that is why I hve had such good success with my auto grows....

This thread should be a sticky. I can't believe I haven't read it until now . The 1st big advantage for me is the low height. I grow in a storage shed with about 54 inches of height - that's total height for pots, plants and 300 watt HPS. The 2nd big advantage for me is no separate flower and veg areas (each of which are too small but combined will be a nice size).

I just ordered ONYX from dope-seeds based on Spearchucker's advice. My planned fall querkle grow just got bumped.

I wish someone would make a satori auto .

Hey does anybody know whats the maximum amount of autos that can go under a 400hps with adequte spacing for side growth in a 20 sf area growing auto ak47 and easy ryders, (which are the biggest...) I was thinking 16...I'm trying to get 1oz dry per plant...Although I know if i use a 600hps or 1000hps I can put more plants and yeild more per plant, but funds have just become a major isssue..maybe after 2 harvests, ("perpeptual") I can buy what i really want...

Talking step to step guide for a noob to grow outdoor autflower ?

nice post compadre but could ye help me i'm an ubber noob - needing a step to step guide...help would be immensly appreciated =D .
Before anyone says, i'm not being a "lazy stoner" i honestly can only find small amounts of info on how to grow autoflowering strands(which isn't helpful), no step by step growing guides can be found !

I was going to grow some autoflowering weed called "lowryder # 2" and wanted to know a step to step guide of how to grow:
how to plant indoors in preperation for outdoor growing?
How to transplant?
How to plant it outdoors?
How often to water?
Iv'e done some research, and here is the information on the strain of weed
Lowryder #2
is a cross between the autoflowering dwarf, Lowryder, and a variety known for copious resin production, exotic taste and soaring highs (Santa Maria is an indica/sativa mix originally from Brazil).
This cross produces compact, bushy very-early flowering plants with prolific budding.
The aroma combines the earthy, mossy tones of Lowryder with the wonderfully spicy yet sweet aroma of the Brazilian.
This cross is suitable for compact indoor or closet cultivation, as well as outdoors for a very early harvest (end of July to mid August).
Yields superior to Lowryder. Flowering is complete after 9 weeks from the seed and it begins since the third. Height is 45-50 cm (17-19 inches). Production is 28-42 grams per plant. This variety is now fully stable and auto-flowering.
Also does flowering in 9 weeks mean it only takes 9 weeks to harvest and grow ?
Please help i'm a noob
Note Autoflowering strains are different to light cycle ones

Hve you ever grown before? I ask because the basics of growing autos is the same as for growing normal strains...I will break it down:

Step 1. Germination is the same as any other strain
Step 2.Transplant to the final pot now(I go from cups to 1-2-3 gallon pots depending on the room I hve). No nutes as they go through the seedling stage
Step 3. Day 18-21 they show sex
Step 4. Pick the plants you are keeping
Step 5. I start them on Bloom Nutrients(I don't keep males)at about 1/4 strength..I up it a 1/4 strength each feed watching for nute burn...
Step 6. Check trichs to tell me when they are done...
Step 7. Harvest

This is for soil obviously...I run the lights 24/0 till like week 3 then down to 18/6 for the rest of the grow. PH is kept at 6.5

hey guys question on autoflowering, i hear these strains need 18hours of light but do they go through the whole flowering process under 18hours of light? i have a william's wonder that keeps flowering under 24/24 fluros i keep trimming them to let them vegging but it's been too much trouble i still manage to get clones from them but never tried keeping them 24/24 or 18/6 under HPS i thought they might just keep vegging if i do that, thx for the help, cheers

can you grow lowryder or Lowryder #2 indoors? niravna doesnt have it in their outdoor seeds so I was wondering if it was strictly outdoor which really doesnt make sense to me but I am kind of thickheaded on alot of this, new to the growing game!

Auto strains do best indoors...so yes you can grow them indoors...you can grow any strain indoors if you wanted to...even the "outdoor" strains can be grown indoors if you want....you wld need to train them to keep them on the smaller side though...

Autos do their thing regardless of the light schedule you use...they do best with 20/4 but 18/6 works fine...they will veg and flower under the same light schedule...the more light you gve them the bigger they will get..to a point..using longer then 20 hours of light will not increase their growth and you will just be wasting electricity.

Just wondering about the compact nature of autos. Would it make sense to move the light a little further away to get more of a spread when flowering so that some of the slightly hidden buds have a chance for more light? They definitely grow very bushy.
