If it was a regular seed instead of auto I would say keep it. However since it is an auto I would just kill it. It will likely only get about 6 inches tall you will get less than an 1/8th off of it because it will be stunted. Might as well kill the runts to keep more room for the larger healthy plants. You can always pop more seeds if you run out I can always send you more. When you make your own seeds there is literally unlimited supply you can just keep popping more don't waste time on runts unless its outdoors and you have unlimited space and free sun. In that case it doesn't really matter.

if i had a bag of soil with gnats in it would i have noticed them while mixing the soil or could it be eggs that hatched after it started getting wet ? i have not noticed any bigs at all while making the pots but gnats are there

The eggs get in the there at the factory where they make the soil. They hatch when conditions are ideal. I have had them on a few grows but honestly I never treated for them I just ignored them. In my situation they never really got out of hand and they didn't effect the grow at all. However one of my buddies got them really bad once. I wouldn't be too concerned unless they really get out of control.

Thats for sure a male. 100% no doubt go ahead and kill it and don't feel bad about it. What's awesome about autoflowers is that the males usually show sex before the females. And also when the males show sex they usually all do it around the exact same time together. This being said if that is the only one of the headlight kushes showing balls right now then chances are the ones that are not showing balls yet are females. This is of course assuming that they were all germinated right around the same time. Usually it is right around week 3 that the males start showing balls. Sometime females wont show until week 4 to 6.

Those plants are looking real good I like the leaf structure and dark green color. They are really gonna start to hit exponential growth mode soon autos really take off once they start showing sex.

also not seeing as many gnats so i guess the sticky traps and diatomaceous earth is working . i did by some neem oil and i put a small cup over the smaller plants and sprayed around them on the top of the soil tonight i also ordered some gnatrol that will be here next week . i will be using it as a preventive care

Looking good man. The headlight kushs are doing great obviously the larger ones were started sooner than the little ones. Thats whats nice about autos they can all grow on the 18 hours light cycle regardless. The Afghans aren't looking so great maybe those older seeds are finally starting to loose some vitality. The Afghans look a bit yellowed and weak.

I mean it's possible that its something your doing. The only thing I might think is maybe overwatering? It's really hard to say exactly. In the past i have seen some runts in the mix. I remember last year I was running a whole bunch of autos and sometimes I would go through and just kill a few runts here or there. Usually there are really good specimens mixed in. I feel like with your Afghans every one is a runt. This is why Im starting to think they are loosing vitality. If so no big deal I will run a bunch of them and see if i can get a few good males and females to rerun them again. I have over 100 seeds so Im sure there are still some good ones in there.

i really don't see how I'm over watering but I'm still new at this

You might not be. I don't know the only reason why I say that is because yellowing leaves on young plants is a classic sign of that. Overwatering is common amongst beginners. If anything me saying overwatering is just a stab in the dark because Im not there to actually follow along. Only a possibility. The Headlights kush look great so obviously you didn't overwater them. I say just keep chugging along and pull any runts that don't get with the program.

Actually now that I have really paid close attention to the pics of the little afghans it looks like really only one of them is yellowing. The other two actually look really healthy especially considering they were just germinated 4 days ago. Those two seem to be doing OK.

found another male and i believe 1 female had 1 afghan just fall over and die and the other 2 afghans aren't growing so they will be gone soon.

First pic is a male. second pic is a female for sure. Bummer on the afghans sorry about that brother. Hopefully those other little headlights on deck will grow to be females as well. As long as you get at least 3 or 4 females in total you should be good. BTW I just started a test run of 4 new auto strains. I will take note of the strongest strain during my testing and let you know. So far the Gelato Auto cross is leading the race all 8 beans popped. Headlights kush (same one your running) also has a high germination rate.
