I grow autos and photos sometimes side by side in the same tentsee if you want high yielder than auto's arn't the way to go. You simply don't have enough time or abilities to do much with an auto. This is why i said, the pros of autos is that you can drop with photoperiods and get consistent yield. Photoperiods you can do all sort of trainings and hit a homerun with lots more yield.
So, the question you gotta ask yourself is that do you want to have consistent grow and have weed or can you go through some month without smoking and just growing that plant to its potential?
