Sounds good man!
So I've grown from seed several times and my preferred way is keeping a mother and using her for clones. I've been growing the same strain for several years now and decided I wanted to try something new. I ordered some seed from Attitude when they were having their big October Promo and got four free seeds when ordering 3. One of the seed was G13 Labs Auto AK Feminized.
I've never grown an AutoFlower before but my smaller cab with the 400w HPS is free right now so I decided to start with the Auto first.

Container closed and sitting on a heating pad in my clone/seedling chamber with the light turned off.
I've had good luck with this method and usually have a spouted seed within 3 day.
Once the seed sprouts, I'll move to a container with FFOF for soil and turn on the lights in the clone/seedling chamber. The lights are 2x14w T5s and are set to a 18/6 light schedule.
Once I have a second set of leaves I'll move the pot into the veg chamber. The lights in the veg chamber are 3x55w T5s and are also on a 18/6 light schedule. Probably leave the pot in the veg chamber for another week and then I'll move it into the smaller flower cab. That will have a 400w HPS which I'm going to run 20/4.
Sounds good man!
i hate autos but you have the right method, good luck!!

seeds. From a single mother I can keep myself going for years by taking clones and in fact that's pretty much what I've done.

Total days: 4
I've got a nice tap root on the seed so I moved it to a pot.

Planted the seed in a 1.2 gal Air-Pot. I'm going to be growing this in the smaller cab so I need to watch the size. I've got a Diet Coke can in the shot for scale.
I received this same freebie. Can't wait for the smoke report.
Life's simple treat.
