    Start autoflowers directly in soil or in root riot cubes?

    Hey all! My current grow is soon finished and I plan the next one.

    A question for you: I will use Jack Herer autoflower and with autos you should preferably sow the seeds directly in the last pot. But what do you think of my idea, Air Pot 3 gallons, Biobizz All Mix Light soil, then place the seeds in a root riot cube in the pot in the soil? Or should I just sow the seed straight in the soil?

    What do you think? Appreciates all comments ...

    Thanks in advance!


    I have grown 50-60 autos, 70 with this grow now.
    I’ve always been sowing right directly in the soil.
    never had a problem with it 👍🏻


      If you are putting it in its final home, forget the cube/plug/root riot!


        I've got 3 out of 5 remaining (2 males already pulled) in different size pots, they are experimental for me in every aspect as they are my first autos, I stuck 5 seeds in the dirt, got 5 to germinate and grow, better averages than my photo seeds for sure, I do those the same way. There are no root cubes in nature and cannabis will grow just fine without a human around.


          I am not sure how to quote all of you, but thank you for the input! I will put the seeds directly in the soil in their final home.

          Btw, two tumbs up for this forum, you guys are great!


            Autos show sex so quickly may as well give it it's best shot and put into it's final pot right away.
