    Default New Outdoor Grower

    Unfortunately in an illegal country but luckily have a large south facing garden to make use of. I make my own compost.
    I’m growing for fun, not yield for the first time so it’ll be interesting to see how it goes.
    I currently have 5 autos at the moment, 2 are tiny but look healthy, 1 is not well, the other 2 are healthy but are abit small due to lack of sunlight this year.

    Ahhh okay. I was told Autos are hardy so that’s why I chose them. I understand they don’t recover from stress well due to their clock and I have made mistakes along the way.

    It's mainly the difference between day and night temperatures that cause Autos to be slow to develop.

    UK I assume?

    Whilst the weather is fine (ATM) watch out for temperature dips at night. As Jingo says, it can really slow things down... and, beware of any frosts!

    Thanks, I’ll keep that in mind for next time. How low can the plants tolerate at night?

    TBH, in a grow room, we would treat 14c as unacceptable. Outside I would treat this as the minimum I'd like, with 12c being too cold

    Whenever I've grown outside, I use the same process as I do with my tomatoes..I start them off indoors in mid to late April, and then I'll plant them out in the last week in May to avoid frosts and that timing has always done very well for me.


    Some grow them in greenhouses with great success too, but that presents it's own challenges..


    The cheaper greenhouses can end up in someone else's garden if you're hit with some heavy winds, (yeah.. that's actually happened to me before )


    Humidity can also be a problem, so I've always opted to grow them outside and I've had decent success!



    This is an auto I grew in the garden last year ;
