    Default Increased yield?

    My first grow was 4 autos (various), soil, 425w cfl 20/4, biogrow,biobloom. - got 3.5 oz dried, well pleased.

    Time for my second grow. Unfortunately I've been unable to upgrade any of my equipment so it's the same setup.

    Desperately looking for any tips, hints, products that can help increase my yield under these conditions.

    I have picked 2 x auto mazar, 1 x G13 NL auto, and 1 x autopounder. as these all seem to be good yield/smoke.

    Also got some 8l root pouch.

    Any help hints very appreciated.

    Seen as they're autos then topping is a no go...

    Go for the lst or the scrog, lst being the easier of the 2 imo..

    No, autos grow too quick and you will end up with a small stunted plant. I've read that light training LST is the way to grow.
    I'm gonna try it on my next grow.

    Yo dude, good yield from some autos for a first grow man, maybe increasing the size of their pots might help, how much soil did they have each? and as said LST will help as well. You should look in grow diaries for the one from a dude named, I think, seymour, he uses LEDS and autos and get's some pretty damn impressive yields goodluck

    Also might not be possible, but the closer to the light the more useful light hitting them so if you can get your plants any closer if it's not too hot it might improve it

    They had 6L square plastic pots - I've just got hold of some 8L root pouch (allow roots to breathe and form better yields). I'll look for Seymore, cheers.

    planting in their final pots from seed is well recommended - repotting stresses the plant and stunts growth.

    I used LST on two Big Bang auto's in seperate grows, but same conditions and pulled around 1.5oz off each plant.

    Have a read and don't be scared of giving it a go. I have moved off auto's and am currently 12/12 with photo plants and have been using supercropping. The ladies love it lol

    Bubbling your water for 24 hours before watering. You can do this while your leave the water out to let the chlorine evaporate.

    I've seen experienced growers do this in order to increase yield with autos. I'm trying it now but only on my first grow so can't give any comparison.

    Ha, I've heard this will increase your yeilds - I have 4 autos - just popped, and my bubbler is on oreder. I'm gunna bubble all my water - auto's usually give around 1oz per plant in soil, that's what I got off my last grow, I'm usung the sme setup so I'll see if I get ne improvement - I am also using bigger pots (8L root pouch) and gunna do some lst.
