4 Diff. AUTOS in a "VERTICLE" Perpetual/Stagger crop A.K.A. AUTOBOTS, TRANSFORM!!

I will be growing 4 different "AUTO" strains...they are as follows;
AutoAK 47 (13)
Buddah White Dwarf (4) fem
AutoAK 47 x Auto Blueberry (5)
Starting this many because we all know the male to female ratio on Autos is high,(with the exception of white dwarf fems) not to mention some that might not even germate...my target # is 16-20...[hopefully!!]
Anyways, my equiptment, (which was expe$ive as F***) goes as follows.....
