    Question its guerilla time in the north and autoflowerers are the choice (help)

    I am going to start my Grow as soon as get some info on nutes, strains and caring for autos as i dont know much about them. i'll give you a brief description of my site it is well secured and off the beaten track its on a south facing slope with good sunlight its has an uphill water source with which i am currently in the process of piping down to my grow site (bloody hardwork) but i think it will be worth it for a auto watering system. my bed will be approx 10ft x 6ft soil is good so planting direct. any tips or advice would be appreciated.
    kind regards.

    Hi headonistic, don't know how big auto flowerers grow, but my plants generally are about 1 metre in diameter, so 6 or maybe 8 would do rather nicely in a 10 ft by 6 ft plot. I hope this is helpful. Happy growing and good luck

    i do know that autoflowerers grow to max 20-24 inches depending on strain and growing conditions this maybe wrong as i have read it somewhere before i'm a new guy to the autoflower scene but they ssem like such a good idea, quick turn around hardy and from what i hear a good chong if cared for right. cheers for the info man i'm thinking of growing some ppp outdoor next year if things dont go well with the autos so keep an eye out man.

    Re: its guerilla time in the north and autoflowerers are the choice (help)

    Headonistic,
    I am currently growing some AFs, White Dwarfs...an AF variant of White Widow. Now in my case, I'm using them in my first indoor/hydro grow after many years growing outdoors, and here is what I can tell you.

    1-These got a bit larger than the breeder claimed...about 30" high with extreme branching.
    2-Outdoor plants almost always grow larger.
    3-There are AF strains that, due to the parent line, branch less and grow shorter.
    4-Without knowing what strain of AF you are growing, there is no good way to project how many you could grow in your space.
    5-Even with the strain, it will still be difficult to tell.

    I would reccomend that you decide on a strain, and then post it here and we'll have a better idea. If was me, I would pick a strain, order 5 femmed seeds, grow those and go from there.

    Take a look at the last picture, on the last page of my grow journal and you'll be able to see how crowded 4 WD are in an 18g DWC setup. There is one other plant in there with them, a Gigabud I had to move in with them, it is in the back right corner and you can't even see it...You obviously will have more space than I do, but use it wisely...much better to have 5 well developed plants than 10 stunted light starved ones. Hope this helped!

    Those are all good strains from good breeders. The AK and Blueberry strains have a rep for being a little tempramental, but if you are willing to put in the time, they are excellent plants that should provide a decent yield. I'm pretty lucky to have a friend who has been growing AFs, outdoors, for some years now, and while he has accused me of going to the dark side with hydro, he is still a fountain of info, and he is willing to share his knowledge. Let me know what strain you decide on and I will be more tham happy to pick his brain for you.
