I have placed all 10 beans in water and I am gonna Germ them per Crop king Seeds Method. 15 hour pre soak then to paper towel with NO bag. Let's see if I get 90% Germ Rate. I still think crop king seeds is a great place for a Rookie to buy seeds from.

Are you going to be organic? Are they going in the ground? What is your plan?

Autos outside?
The outdoor light schedule does not lend itself to autos.

Ummm I think I am gonna go in to Promix and use Medi one from Green planet. I will sprout inside for 30 days then Transplant to 5 Gal pots and probably put the whole pot in the ground still not 100% on what I am gonna do

Autos should be planted into final pot from day one... the deeper the better...

As long as it doesn't get root bound it's fine but I see why you would say that. When it gets root bound it starts to flower
has nothing to do with being root bound... once the tap root hits the bottom growth will stunt... you said 30 days and most autos ive run have started flowering 15-21 days from seed... Id go 2gal min from day one...

If you put a MJ seedling in a huge pot it doesn't do so well autos are Diffrent?

JAAM is right, autos don't like to be transplanted, their veg cycle is so short you don't want to interrupt it with the stress of transplanting.

Why not start them off in a biodegradable pot and plant the whole pot in the ground when you put them outdoors. Autos are going to want 20 hrs of daylight and you wont get that outside, they will produce, just prob less bud than with 20 hours.
I have lots of outdoor experience with regular seeds in Ontario and since we are neighbours if I can help let me know

Stank, do you have room to rock an outdoor grow? If so, here is my first suggestion. Get the soil tested. It is the smartest thing you can do and costs between 20-40 dollars. This will give you valuable info. It will tell you what you need to add to your soil, but more importantly what is already in your soil. It will tell the PH, all the minerals etc.

It is the best money i ever spent in my yard!

LOL--Didn't even notice that these are autos.....

I would be for growing reg plants outdoors and keeping the autos indoors where they can get the 20 hours of light a day they really need.

Autos for inside, period. 20-24 hr light, no transplanting, some autos will lock themselves out if you do.

Unless you can control the temps and live in Alaska or way the **** up there, ruddies will not do their thing outdoors.

You guys kill me . So the breeder is an idiot and tells people to grow them outside so they fail?

Autos will grow outside period. Not the best they could under 24/7 lighting and controlled enviro men but they will grow.
Rose it more of an experiment as I'm not Lic for this grow you dig?

Thanks for your input but I believe they will grow

Us guys never said they wouldnt grow, they will.
Im guessing this will be a guerilla grow right? your not putting these in your yard around here I hope.
Find a spot to plant them north of hwy 7 but keep them inside until last week of May-June 1.
