I 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?

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 @GNick55

What media are they in?

I would put 2 plants in a single pot... gonna make for some crowding issues once they grow.

Don't spray them with water.

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.

Promix organic ultimate . I plan to feed when they use up what they got. And yall can help with that too. Lol
Ok so don't water to runoff. But you water to water the media evenly. Roots won't grow into dry soil.

But you have to make sure you allow them to dry back well before watering again.

Can burn the leaves when under bright light.
Yup yup, if you look closely at the bottom leaves on my plant, you can see where water got on the leaves during a feeding and caused some spots. I've been getting better at not splashing the plant lately though...Lol.

Also, I would fully water those plants hard. It looks like there are cracks in the soil and the soil is pulling back from the edges which means it's really dry in areas not directly under the plant. Maybe it just looks that way though.
