    1. Myth Busting - Autoflowers Revegging (can autoflowers reveg? Give us your thoughts!)

    Come give us your thoughts; we want to hear from you!
  • We're looking for grower submissions for any autoflowers that they have had tested by a lab or using a home testing device. The idea is to create a grouping of tests that we can use a resource to show growers (both new and experienced) what kind of cannabinoids and terpenes some of the strains we're growing are testing out with!

    Appreciate any help and consideration! Click here for the thread!

Hi, long time grower, first time auto grow. I’ll be using a 2.4x1.2 tent, and I have just orders 25 + 10 free autos. Assuming I use 24 of them, what size pot could I get away with?

I’ll be using a brand new Lumatek 600 Pro LED, and if I cant afford another one before I start, a 750 Gavita. So a side by side

Depends on how your going to grow. Soil runs in a 4x4 I get 6 plants in 3 gallon bags.
Coco can run smaller bags, and maybe 4 plants in a 4x4. Large and extra large strains a single plant in coco, grown well could fill a 4x...
If your an experienced grower, and know what's what with plants, you should be ok.
to be big girls, autos need a smooth start.
Remember, you don't get to decide when veg is over, so time lost can't be made up by vegging another week or 2.

Having grown bonzai for 50 years, I got familiar with growing in small containers so started my own auto journey with 2-3 ltr pots of soilless medium such as bio bizz light mix, promix etc 15 years ago and still do. After 15 years I still stuff at least 6 pots into my 3x2 flower tent and let'em rip. I actually found my yeild were just as good at 2 ltr vrs 3 ltr but never grew in anything larger. Just get started, you'll figure out your best grow size and methods. No problem starting small...ya may just wanna stay there.

I’ve posted a pic of the strains.

Coco is my current method. I’ve grown NFT, bubbler, autopots, and now I have a RhizoSystem (IWS run to waste), but I’m thinking of just running these on a light drip and not the full system. The 12 pot system I have can take 15ltr pots. But as I’m now in a 1.8m tent in the loft (I may scrap the tent later on) I need to be wary of potential height issues.
