Last autos didnt turn out good...let's try it again. Same setup as last grow except starting in smaller pots. Nute amounts will also be less. Only doing 2 autos this time.

Pictures taken from dec 10 - day 8 since popping from soil. Watering once a day with spray.

Day 12 - Humidify was low in tent around 20%. Found a humidifier in storage and now it's up to 35% on medium setting, may bump it up to high to raise it a bit more.
LED light both veg and flower setting turned on which raised the temp to around 26celcius. Conditions I think are pretty ideal right now. Watering roughly every 36 hours with spray 6.1ph no nutes yet

Edit: turned humidifer up to high. Humidity is 50%

Suggestions when these girls should be repotted to their final pot 3gallon??

I typically wait till they are pretty big, 10-12 inches out of the ground and plenty of growth. I also watch for roots growing out of the bottom of the pot, as well as even turn them over and gently tap them out of their houses to visually inspect the root ball once the soil really firms up.

You could probably grow in those containers for quite a while, but you'd see a slowdown in growth and general malaise, droopiness eventually once the roots outgrow the container and bunch up on the bottom and become root bound. I think I have a good pic of it, let me see...yes here it is...any long here and I probably would start getting root rot (actually you can see some starting).

Nice root ball! I've yet to have one close to that. Do you water around the edge mostly and minimal around the middle? Not sure if they will develop enough before they flower in another couple weeks. I'll have to repot in a couple weeks or so as I do want to give it a couple days in its final pot before flower. These autos seem to start flowering fairly early. My night temp goes down to 16c, wonder if that is what's hindering the root growth?

Day 15 - growth seems a bit slow...see how it things go over the next week or so. Blue cheese got some shoulder lean happening, straighten her out with some wire, noticed acapulco had some decent growth overnight.
Have not added nutrients yet, thinking they are still too small. Around 6.2ph water roughly every 36 hours.
Lights are 20/4 about 26 inches from tops. Should be ready for watering tomorrow. Also not watering to runoff...I spend about a minute spray down the soil.

Also added a heater on low during lights off for 4 hours as temp was going down to 15c which may have been reason for slower growth

Day 18

-plants are growing a bit slow still....waited 48 hours before todays watering...first time watering to slight runoff 6.2ph no nutes
-day temp 25c, night temp 20c....humidity at 30% and cant seem to raise it....have a humidifer plus cups of water.

will most likely repot next week even though they arent quite ready but Im thinking another 2 weeks before they start flowering, thinking about adding half coco half promix hp with some added perlite

Day 24 update

Blue cheese auto - shes still looking a bit small considering shes day 24 from soil break....thinking another week or 2 before flowering start, hoping for some good growth till then!
watered 500ml ph'd to 6.2 - no runoff

Acapulco gold auto - shes even smaller....pot was still heavyish from last Saturday's watering and as well the soil used to repot was pretty damp so might give it another couple days and check again.

Temp is around 25-26c
Humidity at 40-50%

Day 27 update

Acapulco gold - some growth in the last 3 days, still a bit slow but looking healthy with no issues. Last watering was 8 days ago but pot still has some weight. Top up with promix hp soil as it has sunk about an inch since repotting

Blue cheese - although slower growth as well smaller leaves have gotten bigger, looking healthy. Soil slightly damp a couple inches down so will leave her a couple more days before watering. Also topped up with some promix hp.

Stem looking strong for thick for both!

Happy plants! Nice job @780grow are you gonna top those?
Wont be topping since the growth was too slow. I do know these strain starts flowering in around 2 weeks maybe sooner and they need to be much bigger.

Heard not a good idea to top autoflowers but lst if the plant can handle it
