    Just couious , is anyone running auto flowers during short season? I’m thinking about trying a few soon.I know I’ll have to supplement light this time of year but that’s ok too.
    I’ve done a few pretty good closet grows of phot period plants , using just CFL’s. But I’m thinking w the cost of some of the household LED’s one down and in the right light spectrum , it could really help keep med.s coming in fresh. Can’t afford to run a full light system I think electric is around .48c a Kwh.

    Auto-flowers outdoor during short season? I've never done it, but I'd guess they'd stay pretty small. One way to find out though :mrgreen:

    I’m thinking I’ll use LED’s, and maybe a couple T-5 Florecent grow lights as well.
    I think if I can add 4-5 extra hours light a day that should h play w veg. Somm

    I think most people flower their autoflowers under longer light periods than you would growing photo period plants, but I could be wrong. I've never looked into them really. I did read of some guys flowering out autos in their veg rooms though. And some good autoflowers actually might get a decent size. I saw some decent sized auto flowers someone was growing here in the islands (I think it was Molokai actually) on instagram yesterday. I was surprised they were as big as they were with it being short season. Too bad I can't remember who it was or I'd let you know so you could check them out for yourself on IG.

    Did you check them out on Instagram? They have plenty of posts on there and I think you can buy seeds direct from them. That's probably the best place to hit them up. I don't know anything about their other strains. And just on a side note, I'm pretty sure Ed Rosenthal is hanging out with those guys right now which is pretty cool

    Ho waterproof! Nice! How's the smell? Have you grown Headbanger before and is that the only one you have going?

    Its my first run with them and I have 4 pheno's flowering right now. They mostly have a sweet lemon pledge, og/diesel smell to them some a little sweeter than others. The runt of the bunch is impressing me the most with her smell, kind of a candied grape kush and the undersides of her leaves are turning dark purple.
    We got hit with some pretty bad rains the other week and only one of the phenos was affected by it and she is probably my least favorite overall.
    The only negative aspect is the longer flower time but I think they have enough resistance to get to 10 weeks without too much babying. I would recommend trying it if you are looking for a straightforward sour kush strain thats easy to grow. Mine should be due to harvest right around christmas day.
