    Tips for autos

    I have grown 3 NL #5 fem autos and all
    of them except 1 had died and the 1 is dwarfed now and growing slow. I got another set 2 NL and 2 super kush from another breeder and the same. 2 are not sprouting and 2 have but growing super slow and appear sick?
    the germination process for all seeds was almost overnight with bright white taproots ready to transplant but then boom!
    slow to grow. Even outside in my greenhouse.

    I think I need some help from some auto growers.
    any tips would be great.

    That's a pretty bad failure rate EzPz !
    If you need help from the guys on this forum you're going to have to provide some detail about your growing method.
    600W LEDs (when growing indoors)
    70% John Innes #3 compost. 15% Perlite. 15% coir

        No info to go on so
        1 When raising autos, dont make any mistakes, there is no time to fix them.
        2 Try photos, they can be fixed when having issues and still get a good haul.


          I'd try some photos. I grew two dwarf autos this year.

            I grew 5 outdoors and all of them were pretty short (tallest one was 2 feet), but the buds are developing nicely. Probably pulling them by end of the weekend.

              Those buds look nice. Even though my 3rd auto plant's seed grew twins and I waited to decide which one to cull, and it was chewed on and FIMMED early by my cat, it is the best of my three by far. The first two seeds germed in my Aero-Garden, they weren't in there for long, grew nice roots fast, but they're tiny weirdo plants. More so the NL than the Lemon but both are miniatures. Teacups, in dog breed language. If/when I auto again I'm starting seeds in the pots.

            Try a different strain and don't give any nutes, don't over water and fill the pot with light fluffy soil. Don't over think or over love.
