Outdoor / Indoor Autoflower Question
    #743557 - 08/10/14 09:18 PM (2 years, 3 months ago)

I had to edit this, it was a question about autos moving from outdoors after a month of summer light/dark to indoors under T5's for yield and possible herming.

I'm thinking maybe I posted in the wrong section, I certainly hope not but excuse me if I did.

I understand that 20/4 is optimal from seed, but they would be grown for a month outdoors. Is it advisable to finish them outdoors and to do a different batch with 20/4 (some say 18/6, or even 24/0), or to risk some stress and bananas by changing their light pattern in order to increase the harvest? I don't even know if autos will herm, but I assume they will have their limits with respect to light stress. Thanks again.

It may help a little to put them under the light but don't expect a whole lot. The key with autos is no transplanting. They like to be in their permanent home from day one. Next time get a normal plant and take clones off it and just flower the clones as soon as they root.
A few different versions of what I'm talking about that I've done over the years.

I doubt it would be a problem to just take them out of sunlight into an indoor light source as long as they don't have random dark/light cycle, and even then I'm not sure if there's any definitive info on the subject yet. I'm not much help here, but Check out samsara's autoflower guide. It seems to be a good little collection of information, and there may be something helpful in there. Direct link to the PDF http://www.samsaraseeds.com/media/growers_guide_autoflowering_plants.pdf

I know this is a potentially unwanted or out of place opinion, but... In general I think more people should establish if they NEED their plants to automatically go into flower regardless of the hours of light. Like maybe if you have no grow lamps and live somewhere in the world that it's sunny 20 hours a day, you would absolutely need to choose autoflowering/loweryder/ruderalis crossed genetics, but beyond that, what reason is there to choose autoflowering genetics? I know they are getting a little better at making ruderalis crosses bigger/stronger, but I'm willing to bet it's still not enough to make them worth choosing if you don't need to. Although.. I suppose it would be cool to just have a plant flowering in your bedroom or around the house and not have to worry too much about the light cycle. throw one near the tv or by a lamp you use.

There is proof that autoflower strains are natural and not some Monsanto creation, right? because they are surely working on clever plans to sneak their genetics into every breeders collection of seeds and then go around claiming the rights to those strains and bankrupting breeders just by initiating a legal battle.


--------------------
Be sure to read up on "autoflower"/ruderalis seeds before choosing them. Unless you NEED autos, you might do much better with anything else. No more hoarding ultra genetics! We need more of the best not less!

I would get them to try as a novelty. Also if one grows outdoors they provide an early harvest so you don't go all summer without meds. Maybe these are best suited indoors though, I'm not sure. It would save money to do them outside however. Great link, a few things I hadn't heard b4 like transplanting being a no-no.

I assume Ruderalis is a real thing but Monsanto has their grubby hands in everything. Fuck those dry cunts.
