fem auto/reg mix {grow report}
    #638106 - 09/24/12 03:38 AM (4 years, 2 months ago)

i have about 20 diff auto fem seeds i plan on using. how  many watts would I really need to get the most from these???

would a couple hundred watts of cfls be plenty?? thats what i planned on. Or should I used a 100W HPS? which would have less light heat? and what time cycle you think is best for autos?

autobb autoak,wwafghankush skunk47, wonderwomen, blackjack are the straiins growing

How many are you going to grow at a time?  Personally I would go with the hps.  Also I think lights on 24/7 is best for auto's as they don't really have a lot of time.

I've grown autos under 24 and 12 and I think 18. The finished product didn't differ enough between them to make much of a difference. So I just do them like normal plants. 24 until flower, and flip to 12. You're more than welcome to run the lights 24 instead but the extra bits of growth weren't worth the extra stress on my equipment and the extra few bucks on the power bill.

Your biggest determining factor will be the pots you start them in in my experience. I find its best not to transplant autos. Start them in the container you want them to finish in. I used to start them in party cups like my regular ladies and clones but stopped and just went strsigt to gallon buckets. The difference was noticablr for sure.

Why should that mean it isn't real?

I'm not sure where I remember reading this, but I know it was here, and I THINK it was Magash that broke it all down in the thread... But watt for watt, CFL's produce MORE heat than HID lights produce. I would recommend using an HID light, in all honesty, but what you decide is up to you. I've seen people get pretty decent buds from just using CFL's. Nothing really stellar, mind you. Just nice decent mid-grade herb...


--------------------
My best run so far

well i plan on using maybe 200 watts of cfls. all diff spectrums. than if i change my mind i most likely will add a small HPS. I know i can get good personals rom cfls and this. i will buy 2-3 more cfls bubls and i will get something nice i know it. with cfls i can use 2 small peronal fans and it would be enough to cool lights.

i have bomb strains and from germ to finish shold only take 7 weeks.

20 seeds under 200w isn't gonna amount to much.

Well the autos are auto so lighting with them you don't really have to worry about.  Just pay attention to the reg and fem seeds and do what they need.

true. I meant more about the reg and fem seeds fucking each other up and getting seeds on my femz easier. I will have to keep an extra eye for males and herms. or perhaps veg the reg seeds in a small sep area?? this is all personal and nothing huge. I decided i may go with a 150W HPS and about 100+ watts of extra cfl for flower and 147W of cfl for veg.

EDIT...going with a 250W HPS and 100+ watts of cfls for flowering..
