Is it too late to start autoflowers outside?

Zone 5 here Indiana. I thought about getting a last grow in before winter outside. Frost will happen within 30 days but I can bring the pots in. Do you think we have enough sunlight to make it happen?

Autos really don’t care about a light schedule. They do what they want, when they want.

So if you can bring them in, go for it. :+1::+1::+1:


Nope, is what I say but I don’t know much
I’d think outside in your climate would be a no go

Can’t hurt to try if you have your heart set on it though

Oh your bringing them indoors, sounds good if you have light
Substantial amounts of light

It really depends on the strain there’s some strains that claim to be able to grow even if there’s morning frost. I’ve never tried and don’t recall what the strain was I just remember reading it

Our house was 39 degrees for 70 hr 9 min when they turned out power off due to the hard freeze in Feb. The plant did fine. She did foxtail but that was the only negative.

Geez I wouldn’t unless maybe you were in the southernmost states or Central America . I’d say even doing it mid September is cutting it closer then I’d like. Just do an indoor grow if you have a spare 600-900$

Long as you don’t leave them in the cold then you should have no problem.

Give it a shot. Experiment!

I’m in a similar climate. If you have seeds to burn give it a shot. I really don’t think it’ll be that great but who knows… keep an eye out for bud rot mold and wpm

what part of Indiana you from, i also am in Indiana
