Well hello first let me start by thanking everyone on these forums for all the outstanding knowledge that is shared so willingly and freely amongst growers. I am currently setting up multiple tents and will be growing a variety in my garden, hopefully. I will expand on each individual grow tent as I get more set up. Of course I am impatient and wanted something growing while I set up my variable grow operations so I decided I would jump in to the auto flower arena and see what it was about. I am currently growing Four ILGM zSkittles autos. Currently they are in 5 gallon cloth pots in ff ocean, this may have been a mistake but I just filled the pots with straight potting soil. I germinated 3 seed and put them in a little finger hole in the soil loosely covered them with ff ocean, watered lightly and waited. Two popped quickly and the third I thought I messed up on so I germinated one more seed. Put it in the pot I thought I messed up and boom now it’s sisters in the same pot. They are different sizes but both seem to be doing well. Currently the are in the lower section of a multi tent 4’x1’ with a Mars hydro 600led. The nursery is on the shelf above with another 600led so the autos will get more light from above. You will figure out I have a love hate relationship with punctuation and run on sentences… back to business. The girls were on a 24h solid light schedule for a week and seem great. After reading more about autos on this forum I am switching to a 20/4 light cycle so they can rest a bit. I would love to learn from others growing autos what worked for them light wise from watts to recommended distance. I have the light roughly 18” above the girls. Let’s see if I can figure out how to post some pictures of the girls.
Also my first question is splitting up the two in one five gallon pot. Should I split them? Could they be trained? One is also a week younger so?
