    Default help for germinating autos outdoors

    hi 👋🏻 after a good start to growing indoors i have decided to purchase 3x sweet tooth auto & 3x sin tra baji auto. I have a roof i can grow on that gets a lot of sunlight and was just wondering what would be the best way to start them off? I was thinking of using the paper towel method then transplant them over to a small pot outside with a dome over the top of them and bring them in if it gets too cold at night, then eventually move them to a bigger pot. But after reading around a bit i have seen some people say with autos its best to pot them in their final pot to prevent stunting growth. Im not really sure what to do tbh so could someone please give me some guidance on how to start them off i will be internally grateful 👽👽

    Always start autos in their final pot mate. The reason is to avoid the stress of up-potting on autos so that they have every chance of developing their full potential

    so would you suggest starting them off in a paper towel then just putting them in a pot outside in direct light with a dome or without a dome?

    Starting them in paper towels will be fine

    I start mine in soil, not too many paper towels in nature .

    With autos its two pots beginning and final. Germinate somewhere like the hotpress and then a south facing window for a bit if the temps are on the low side before their final home. I've also planted in the one pot but not noticed any difference.

    Start them in the shade until they get some good roots on them, before introducing them to full sun light. You will burn those seedlings if you don't keep them wet when in full sun light.

    What I do is wait until it is plenty warm outside, fill a 5 gallon bucket with my soil mix, then dig out a small solo cup size area and fill it with a seed starting soil like black gold. I plant the seed directly into it (no paper towel) and place the bucket in it's final location. Seeds always sprout no problem (of course you still have to water them and whatnot).

    What sort of sun/shade spot do you put it?

    Oh also not a fan of domes over my plants cause I feel like all it does is increase your chance for mold, but I live in a naturally humid area already so that makes a difference i suppose.
