I love autos for the same reason. Variety is the spice of life. While I might potentialy need 2 auto harvests to equal 1 photo harvest, at the end of those harvests I’ll have 14 different strains to choose from.
I’m too new to answer. But the answers above sums up my expectations. My reason for doing autos is trying to test as many strains as possible in the shortest time period. An ounce or two per plant is all I’m hoping for. But anything that causes the plant to stall effects yield. I mean anything! So this round I have two that are performing well and two that I slowed down with mistakes. Those two will barely produce anything.
I like the autos for indoors. My Northern Light did real well about four oz. Per plant. yield has a lot of different factors lights Being a big one. I think you’ll be very happy with the northern light. Good luck
In the seed shop, pick any strain. On the left side of its web page, you will see a graphical representation of the various characteristics of it. If you actually mouse over the green “bar graph” you will also see a numerical representation (e.g. 3oz/ft2 or 3oz/plant) of that characteristic. These numbers are likely optimistic, but will still tell you which is more likely to have a bigger yield than others.
I don’t have dry weight numbers, but I grew 13 autoflowers (11 WW,1 colorodo cookie, 1 pineapple express) in two waves in a 33"x46"x80" shower under 400HPS+400MH lamps. It produced 22 qt sized jars of weed and supplied my wife and I (both heavy users) with 9 months of weed, had to have been around a pound+. They were my first and second grows and I did all sorts of horrible things to them, so they probably could’ve produced even more than that.
The blueberry auto seeds are trash. So far 1 of 7 have sprouted.
2 words. Rapid Rooters. I had all kinds of problems with blueberry autos until I found out about them.
Are they similar to rock wool?
Nope. They’re a peat pod with some kind of root starter added. They feel like a moist sponge. They sell on Amazon. I believe @raustin told me about them.
What size of space are u useing
I grow completely outdoors.
Rapid rooters are amazing. Compressed peat with a spongey texture & water holding capacity. Make germination fool-proof.
Rapid Rooter or Jiffy Pod. Both are great!

Rapid rooter always works with a heat mat germination station when they hit the roof take autos right to the big pots and bury once roots come out the bottom
I’m new to growing and ty for suggesting curing very slowly. Any other advice on curing? Pic is sexy as hell.
Cut the whole plant at the base and hang upside down for 7-10 days (till the stems bend but not break off). Then take down and trim the buds off with the stem they live on. Put those in a brown paper bag for another 7-10 days. Shake every day. From there, you can clean the buds off, trim to clean up, and jar. Vacuum seal the jars and open daily to let them breathe off the gases (burping the jars). Do this for 10 days (or so). From here, you can jar them with 62% Bovida packs (no vacuum seal). Burp once a month.
This is how I was taught. There is “set in stone” way though.
Thanx a bunch
Do you really need to vacuum seal the jars every day, or can you just put the lid back on?
