    So you are say to start spraying after i see hairs? Thought you wanted to start spraying a week before flip so with an auto that take say 90 days and starts to flower around the 3/4 week area i would start spraying around the two and a half week mark right?

    when ever you can see its a boy or a girl. if its a girl start spraying. if its a boy kill it or leave it to have natural sex

    insteadof growing an auto gg with the intent of breeding the auto out.. why not just start off with non auto gg? :/

    If you have a fem auto you are misting, start misting at 6”. I’ve talked to the TMist peeps. That’s what they recommend and works well.

    If you have reg autos, and want fems, then yes you would wait until white hairs show and hit it.

    Don’t mean to step on anyone’s toes.

    Currently doing that with a BD auto ( HSO ) .... Hit branch with Tmist / Silver Mountain
    Mix .... I was low on Tmist and bought a bottle of silver mountain (50ppm).

    Tmist sprayer is just right. As soon as she sexed she got blasted ... Once a day .
    In about 12 days I got LADYNUTS. ............ I am planning to SELF this plant to keep the seeds ( instead of buying more ). Then use on some other plants ( autos ).

    It's pretty easy ... I cut a styrofoam cup to make a COLLAR , like a dog collar ( from the vet ). Place over branch , spray a couple times . One to two times a day .....
    Morning and before lights out ....

    I've got a few pure auto crosses
    Auto ultimate x magnum
    Syrup x magnum
    I also made some auto x photo seeds
    In every auto x photo strain I have made at least 90 percent are auto flowering .the other 10 or so percent are photos but they will flower weeks before normal photos start to flower. I made over 4 different auto x photo strains using a female ghost train haze 1 fem sprayed with colloidal silver as the pollen donor. The photo x autos can make autos up to 5 foot tall. With colloidal silver start spraying as soon as you see the sex and keep spraying twice a day until pollen sacks start to open.
    At the moment I'm planting new autos strains to make seeds for a spring crop here in aussie
    Strains are
    Dinafem xxl auto white widow
    Pyramid seeds auto white widow
    Buddha syrup auto
    Black skull seeds auto diesel matic
    Barney's farm auto blue mammoth
    Barney's farm auto tangerine dream
    Blimburn seeds tangie auto
    Big head auto big Stilton
    Big Buddha critical mass auto
    Will make reg autos using a syrup male and fem autos using a xxl auto ww .
    I'll give you an idea on breeding from what I've discovered throughout growing autos over the years.
    Auto x photo - 90 percent auto.
    (Auto x photo) x photo - 100 percent photo. I've got a couple of auto x photos still out bush there bigger plants and you can grow them using less water then pure photos. Hope that helps .just telling how my grows and breeding programs have turned out.

    HSO BD pollen sacs - CS sprayed an auto and began to dust the host plant.
    These will be used on some other girls ( GG4 ) .....

    Very nice. I managed to pollinate some females yesterday before the rains set in.
    Gorilla bomb
    Black d.o.g
    Critical super silver haze
    Ghost train haze 1
    Chocolope kush.its good to always have plenty of seeds and strains.

    Those pollen sacks will open up by themselves over the next 3 or 4 days big you take a branch of male flowers like them and cut the branch off the next day pollen will be falling out if them.

    Phase 2 :

    Candy Dream ( 1 gallon grow bag ) flipped two days ago on 12/12.
    Will wait for her to sex out then blast whole plant for a " pollen plant "

    This strain is a ( Kandy KUSH X Blue Dream ) cut ... Perfect for crossing .
    Phenos are variable , some shorter nodes , some a bit more stretchy ...

    This one has a tighter node space so I want to use her. Once popping lady nuts she will be moved to mature fully on the plant .

    I ran out of Tmist a few runs back so I use Silver Mountain mix ( 50 ppm ) and refill sorayer as needed.

    OP, now that you have all those nice auto seeds, you should think about hitting one of the females with some photo pollen. Like bobqp said, most will have the auto trait. You can veg then with long light hours to get better size.
