    Autos made it through week three. Hows my first budget grow looking? A couple of them have sprouted taller and faster I am wondering if these are potentially males.. 20200219_221921.jpg 20200219_221921.jpg 20200218_214459.jpg 20200218_214339.jpg 20200218_214339.jpg 20200219_221926.jpg 20200219_221931.jpg 20200219_221933.jpg

    I would be more concerned that they are that small at 3 weeks. No way to tell sex at this stage.

    I'm guessing my lights are the issue. Idk. I have not given the any nutrients either.

    18 days to be exact. Not quite 3 weeks.

    When you bought the autos, were they fem seeds by any chance? I dont see too many regular autos out there

    I find starting in Solo cups instead of bigger pots helps with growth. I start with Solo cups, then move to 1/2 gallon pots then to 1-gallon Smart pots for flower.

    Upon further reading they are fems and are not suppose to get very big. so that's my mistake. Also I remember reading somewhere that your not suppose to transplant autos is why I started in the big pots. I did buy these seeds because they were described as good for first time growers. Anyways it's all a learning experience for sure.

    Just get through the grow. Dont worry about yield or plant size just yet. A full complete cycle through harvest is the prescription here. Just my opinion. How close is that light?

    Just watch for bleaching or leaf curling, but i think it was the right move
