I am very well aware of autos, and have no problem with them. All I said was I don't get why people grow them indoor when you can control the photo period at will, over a plant that does that regardless... I just didnt get it. I guess for me im just used to and expecting a 2 month flowering, I wasn't thinking of the faster growth period. Which is why I also stated, "thats just my personal preference" just like with your personal preference being towards Autos. No need to come across cocky, when no one ever really knocked autos in the first place.. Kinda quick there to jump the gun.. Although we value shared knowledge and constructive criticism, I feel (with all do respect), you got a bit triggered there and somewhat unloaded some aggression that you apparently have toward people who oppose Autos. But if you look around, you'll see that a vast majority are pro autos... Maybe most the stuff in there is outdated because most people here after many years of growing, are not troubled by another few weeks of growing for a better payout.. Nothings wrong with autos, just most people usually grow regular Sativa/indicas.. Autos are under the genetics of "Cannabis ruderalis" Which is more high in the CBD aspects of marijuana as opposed to THC. Although Autos can produce fairly well in THC around 15%-20% most autos will produce more towards CBD... Of course this all depends on the genetics, however, the point im getting at, is it's usually more beneficial to grow a regular Sativa or Indica or a hybrid of the two, over an auto. You might want to calm down a bit and realize that we are all here to help, not flex nuts... Welcome to MP by the wayforget those nay sayers about the auto strain. they are about as antiquated as the auto section they have here. true you wont get a pound from them as you might from a photo but the quickness makes up for that. autos finish in about 12 weeks or less and I have grown both the vast and fast and the newer thc bomb auto getting about 4 ounces per plant under the t5. I did try the vast and fast under a 1k hid and saw no difference in weight but not the thc bomb as of yet. I will agree if you looking for weight and have time then sure you will get more weight from most photos if that's your thing. as far as potency its comparible to the photos. I don't care what the nay sayers say. everyone that has tried what autos I grow love the stuff and I am not giving this stuff to kids. the auto strain, depending on the strain, is every bit as respectable as most photo strains and should be given attention. I am sorry but I am smoking some good stuff at 12 weeks verses most photos after 9 months. and I get to sterilize. earlier. if you decide to try the auto way give me a shout and I will help you out. disregard the nay sayers, they are just not inlightend yet. lol..
and I am NOT tring to be disrespectfull but I love the autos and getting tired of everyone saing stay away or it isn't worth it or the photos are better. since your antiquated thread about autos was put up in what 2007? they have made major strides. ****, maybe all I need is 4 ounces every 12 weeks! I would rather grow a different strain every 3 months then 1 strain to last a full year. that gets kinda dull in my book. and I can always trade what I grow a lot more frequently then the photo growers, so I get diversion more frequently. I see nothing but pluses.
Wait... 3 Gallons under t5!?!? This seems very unlikely Sir/Ma'am. Common now... were your t 5's putting out 120k lumens or more? Cause theres just no way you could push that much per plant under just a regular set up of t5's..it was a 3 gallon pot in cocoa under t5 the first one. the 2nd grow was under 1k but still only yielded 4 ounces. I don't have the pice anymore but I will try to get the pic from the forum I did it at and post here. they only got to I believe 28 inchs.
