    1st. AUTO grow. Hot Damn!

    I started seeds for my first all auto grow on 5/17.
    By 5/19 all of them had sprouted. Put them into peat plugs in solo cups.
    By 5/21 they sprouted
    By 5/25 the first leaves popped.
    On 5/30 I transplanted them to their final home.
    On 6/16 they started flower.

    That's thirty days from seed! Sweet Lawd Have Mercy! I know that Autos are fast but I was unprepared for this. I have grown occasional autos but never a whole crop. I wonder if the excess heat in my tent has something to do with it?

      They do have some advantages and that's one of them. But ya never know when they begin. I got 2 outdoors in not good enviornment too cool again and wet. I'm checking them too often because they also are in preflower. Began them 5/3 in the soil cup and transplanted them once they outgrew the solo took about 3wks only had a small t-5 single tube over them. Once i put them in a 3gal fabric they exploded and we had really nice temps. They love the heat, they loved it last year on my roof. But mine are slowed down now cause of the friggin rain and coolness. By now it should of been in the low 80s f I enjoy growing them like little dwarf photos just need to grow many LOL

          My autos are verging on fem timings. Both times I’ve done them they’ve taken around 8 weeks to flower. 14 weeks from seed this grow for 2 out of 3 plants and one of them could’ve gone another week easy

            I read you can force them to flower with light schedule and feeding.
            And both re-potting and training/topping your plants may slow them down..
            Could it be the case?

            MagicMike66 So there's no advantage to autos except for smaller plants...

            You cannot force an auto to flower or not to flower. Some autos start at 3 weeks old while others start at 8 weeks old, its in their genetics. Some run 60 days while another will take 130 days, also in their genetics.

          alltatup not sure about the small part 🤣
