OK, so I've been growing for a few years now and can say with confidence that I'm pretty experienced. I used to be a straight photo grower but the last 2 years I've been trying out auto's in a few of my tents for fun/knowledge. Over the years I've heard every rumor there is about autoflowering cannabis. Don't do this and don't do that BS. So I decided i was gonna do an experiment to test some of this stuff out. You always hear don't transplant,top,train/lst/mainline,defoliate etc etc. Basically from what i gather auto's just pop them in the ground and let them do there thing. Well I said fuck it I'm gonna do all that and see how she goes. Strain: White Widow(Nirvana Auto) Nutes: GH Flora Series,Cal Mag, Mammoth P Pro Mix HP, 30% Coco, Extra Perlite, 3 Gallon(Ghetto smart pot lol) Lights: (2) 300 watt Mars Hydro Reflector Series So far I've transplanted,topped,light lst,heavy defoliate and use full strength nutes since her first 3 leaf set. Well here's my outcome so far. Transplant: Yes, it slowed her down but didn't seem stunt her at all. Topped: (3rd node) Again yes this did slow her down but topping has made her stack amazingly. Light lst: Only did small tie downs till she started flower and removed them. Doesn't seem to have stunt her. Heavy Defoliate: 1 week before flower and again at day 21 of flower. Working great so far. Nutes: Full strength nutes hasn't bothered her at all. I did get a tiny burn last feeding but is very very minimal. She's in week 3 of flower and I am going to keep updating this post all the way through curing and let you guys know my overall thoughts.
