Do I need a bloom/veg light for autos or can I just use my cheaper LED veg light the whole time? I have photos using up my good light and I’d rather avoid buying another If possible.’
quality of bud is directly related to quality or light once in flower you will need a good light
Autoflowers needs just as much light if not more then photos you dont get buds like this tangerine dream with cheapo lights do you and your plants a favor and get a good red spectrum boosted light
What size space are you needing to light up you may be able to get a quality LED light very reasonable.
The area isn’t very big. 4x4 ish. I CANNOT spend more that 100 this cycle, I just can’t. I can upgrade next cycle but is there nothing that will work in a pinch even though it won’t produce ideal results?
The sun is pretty cheap and reliable this time of year. Best light available. Have you considered moving your autos outside?

For amazing Bud production in my research you can do 2 plants successfully. (At your budget)
I’m my opinion… you’d be better served using the sun, saving the money and throwing down on the best light you can afford next round.
4 x4 space with quality lights can get expensive. You might consider smaller space 3 x3 space an purchase one quality light. Outside will always be your cheapest grow. Or small Greenhouse. quality lights will pay for itself in time with quantity and quality buds.
