Hey I'm new at this so. I'm sure I'm doing everything wrong. So I have 5 autoflowers under some t5s and a vs1000 18 days old. Why are they so short? How can I lst?
Id use the 1000 mh lifted right up if it was me man but what do I know I can’t even get my timers right pretty sure 2 plants 1 pot no good though mate might work but surely they just be fighting each other for root space nutes ect someone a lot more experienced than me will chime in eventually and set ya [email protected] or @Frankster @GNick55I keep seeing alot of tiny autoflower plants. So that was my thoughts on that and also I have a 1000watt hps/mh. Waiting. Wouldn't that be way overkill right now?
Ok so don't water to runoff. But you water to water the media evenly. Roots won't grow into dry soil.
When starting something new, I find it best to start small. I only started with one Auto so that I could get a feel for the grow of them first. Two plants per pot is going to be too much even with LST If your plants grow anything like mine.
Here is an example of mine at day 26:

This is a 5gal pot and you can see this one plant is covering almost all of the surface area. Give them time... They start off slow as the roots are developing and look like they are not making much progress but believe me, they are working under the soil. These plants also don't get very large indoors.
I started LST in week 3 for my plant but if you're gentle you can start now. I started a little too late but I like the way the plant formed anyways. Round one is a learning experience . Don't sweat it too much and just give it time my friend.
Don't start over. Separate the pots that have doubles (You might lose the transplanted ones). Just give them time bud, seriously. You have months to go on this grow still.I think I fucked em up bad. Should I start over? I can't see getting that much growth in 3 weeks.
