    I have some auto seeds and am needing some guidance on how to care for them.

    I live coastal Georgia and am wanting to grow outdoors in a planter. If/when it gets below freezing I’m hoping I can bring them indoors in my sunroom.

    Is this feasible? If so, what kind of planter, soil, nutrients, etc should I get? TIA

    I don't know what your temps run like (I've always lived in the northwest), but when the temps get below 60, the plants don't grow much. Also, autos do best with about 20 hour of light a day. You have got to be real close to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of dark and the days will continue to get shorter and the sunlight further away and weaker. I'm thinking that they will probably not produce much with so few hours of sunlight.

    Please tell me why Auto’s do best with 20 hours of light ! I’ve been growing my Auto’s next to the photoperiod plants and getting 16 hours ! The Auto’s started flowering at 3 weeks !

    Autos take advantage of being able to grow under 24hr light.
    They need no dark time. That being said....dark time interfears with their photosynthesis.
    Less light means less harvest.

    I have not grown Autos for years but when I did I always ran them on a 24-0 lighting schedule. They don't need a dark period so hit them with as much light as you can 24/7.

    The lights are on my autos 24/7. I had a couple of photo period plants in there with them until I set up a second room and I have them on 12/12 after I flipped them to flowering
