Thinking about growing autoflowering strain.
    #341390 - 01/06/10 02:06 AM (6 years, 10 months ago)

For my first grow under an HPS. A few questions cuz I want to do this right after all.

1.)Do autoflowering strains do well in soil? (I was thinking foxfarm products)
2.) How big of a pot do you need for an autoflowering strain?
3.) From start to finish on average how long do autofloweing strains take to grow?
4.) How tall does an autoflowering strain get (on average).
5.) Are they easier to grow than a normal strain?
6.) Any good breeders that you know of?

1. yes fox farm and ff nutes work magic.
2. I have had mine in 3 1/2 gallon buckets but they didnt even use it all.
3.85-100 days closer to 90 usually.
4.I had only one go over 2ft mostly 20-22ins.
5.I threw the seeds in cubes than transplanted, they were outside so nature did the rest but give nutes.
6.I grew lowryder 2 and lowryder X ak-47 with great results.

That or I was thinking growing 1 or 2 normal size plants and choping them or tying them down....which would be a better option?

A buddy of mine was growing lowryder #2 outdoors a year or two ago and he had them in 5 gal pots and the roots were all the way to the edges, probably dosent need that much though  :shrug:

Im planning on trying some of them outdoors next spring since they stay so short :happyweed:

I love LST methods like ScrOG and tying down. If you put one plant in a 5 gallon bucket with a 3x3ft screen ontop with the right strain you could pull a pound. If your doing 2 plants you should think about growing hydro like a deep water culture or a ebb n flo system, both easy and good for new hydro growers. If your looking for time period than go auto but if your looking for starting a mother and growing the best weed you have ever smoked for an indefinite amount of time go with 1 or 2 plants. What wattage is your HPS and whats your grow area look like.

Id assume its hard to ScrOG an autoflowering plant seeing as there is just one main stem and not really any branches (usually)

Right now I'm thinking just a plant or two, not as a mother or anything. I think I'm going to do a soil grow. My wattage would be a 400 watt HPS bulb. Not sure what my grow area will look like right now. Although it would be nice to get a lb. off a plant I dont really need that much. I just need to learn how to do things the right way. I would do a hydroponics grow but its to expensive for me. I think I'm just gonna get some good soil and nutes and make my one or two plants really happy. I'm thinking about growing some GDP or something that will chill me out cuz I have anxiety pretty bad.

Time would be an issue possibly where I am at now, but if I move to where I want soon then I dont have to worry about time or landlords.

If you have to worry about landlords than dont grow PERIOD. Ok first off I am hydro biast because thats one of the classes I teach,:naughty:. Hydro is cheap as fuck, go to home depot, get 2 buckets 2-3 gallons is perfect for this,some verm and perlite maybe even hydroton(I do), and a drill if you dont have one. Go here http://www.petco.com/product/109838/PETCO-Air-Pump.aspx?CoreCat=LN_Shopping_FishSupplies_AirPumpsandAccessories and get the strongest one. Drill shit ton of holes in the bottom of one bucket like the size of lincolns head on the penny. hook up the 4 pump outputs,4 airstones, and tubes and place the 4 airstones around the center of the bucket and fill with media mixture. place this bucket inside a non-hole drilled one, add enough water so that the inner bucket has water like 4 inches above the bottom. Single stage nutes are cheap. Your total 35 bucks and that thing will grow you a huge plant. get clones from a buddy or fem seeds online. fuck auto, learn on real plants first.

Eh, if you're looking to save money fuck DWC.  Just go hempy, no need for pumps or airstones.  All you need is a bucket, some perlite (verm too if you want), and that's it.  Drill a hole two inches from the bottom of the bucket, fill the bucket with your substrate, and place your plant in.

Water the bucket until water dribbles from the hole and you're good to go.

Shit can you draw me a diagram in paint? Is that what you are doing with your autoflowering strain? And how do you do nutes with that?

Yeah thats what he's doing.

Putting holes a few inches above the bottom ensures that the roots don't dry up and always have something to feed on.

It's basically like a poor mans DWC but it works great.

I just love my soil though and would stick to that as it is more forgiving to mistakes.
