This year I bought more seeds and decided to try some auto flowers. I have 5 different auto strains and I have no experience with them. I understand that they are "programed" to finish by a set number of days no matter the light cycle. My thought was that I could start them later and finish them earlier than the traditional seeds that I’ll be growing.

I’m considering the autos as "extra" plants and a learning experience. Not hoping for much from them butit’ll be nice to start late and harvest early! Is it ok to plant them in the ground or are they really best done in containers? I grow big trees in the ground but thought that the smaller size of autos would be nice to do in containers and be able to move them around but I’ve neve rbeen clear if they do better in containers

I was thinking the same as you this year. I wanted to do about 10 plants but didn’t want to be cutting down 10 plants all within a few weeks. So I did 4 photo periods that should finish in September. And I got some autos that should finish at various times. Hoping to spread the harvest over about 7 or 8 weeks instead of 2-3 weeks.

Hey everyone. I pulled off a very successful outdoor grow last season and everything went well. The only part I had trouble with and was overwhelmed by was having so many plants coming down all in the same window of time and not having any help to trim. Some finished a bit early and some came down due to damage or slight bud rot but I spent most of a month trimming for hours every couple days after a long day of work and it was too much for me

Im in SW Ontario, Canada so as a general rule of thumb we don’t put things outside for good until the End of May due to threat of frost

Does anyone have experience with autos outdoors? Does it make sense to hold off on starting auto seeds til June 1 (or so) and have them finish mid August (75 days)? I figure this allows me to start them late, finish early and have them flowering in pretty strong summer sun.. but I dunno.. Is this what people do?
