Is it too late for some autos?

High guys and gals :oldtoker:

I've had a successful harvest indoors a fair few times now.....outdoors not so much. Anything from it snowing in May, to nosey dog walkers and Police finding them, I'm yet to have a successful crop outdoors. But this year was going to be different! Yeah, was it fuck! Back in May I sowed 5 Nirvana Swiss Cheese which were started indoors under natural light. All was going very well but to cut a long story short they basically all got eaten by presumably deer or rabbits. :furious: Just my bloody luck.

So I've ordered some autos in a desperate attempt to get some smoke. 5 Kannabia Hobbit for their mould resistance and flowering time of 9 weeks and 3 Pyramid New York City, as according to Discreet seeds also have good mould resistance, were cheap as chips and flower in just 8 weeks. My theory was that these would be ready by late October like my Swiss Cheese (R.I.P) would be anyway. But now I'm worried that it's already August and I'll get bugger all from them. I was reluctant to the idea of autos in the first place let alone this late.

Should I just wake up to the fact that I've missed the boat and save the beans for a more likely harvest next year? Or do you think I should stop fannying about, invest in some chicken wire and give them a punt? I'm in the South of the UK by the way at lat 51. Unfortunately growing indoors is not a possibility for me anymore in my current housing situation. If it was I would have some Exodus Cheese in bloom as we speak!!!

Any advise on the matter would be much appreciated as outdoor growing isn't exactly my area of expertise.

Thanks,

Sensi

If growing indoors ain't possible no more, you may as well get planting outdoors mate, something's better than nothing!!

I'm sure you know your stuff, but check @@912GreenSkell and @@autodog to see how well they do Autos outdoors.

Hey from cannada! Autos can certainly pull there own weight, especially if you give them an excellent indoor start to life. I like to hit them with 24 hours of light for the first 20-30 days in bigger airpots, and then plant them directly in the ground. Ive never tried the strains you got, but if you check out my journal in the grow diaries section, you might get some good tips to help whip up a nice harvest. Good luck to you

just after lunchtime for me Bro :upside:

Perfect outdoor growing conditions..... fertile volcanic soil, plenty of sunshine. Problem is we have these jumbo 'rabbits' that have big tails and bounce around on their huge back feet. Plus the land is teeming with Brown snakes and Red Bellied Blacks. Oh, and a Landlord that likes to play Tarzan when he comes over..... I have a plot in mind, it's perfect, but that bastard will find it for sure.

Real snow in the southern uk used to be a fairly rare event,when i say snow i mean stuff that lies on the ground,we used to get a couple of flurries normally jan or feb,yet i have seen 3 feet fall in one day in ontario earlier this year,no contest weather wise,hotter summers,far colder winters,falls are nice both countries though.

Thinkin on this...about 90 days + needed so it's worth a go if nothing else is cookin. A few grams is way better than none.I've got photo plants coming through in october, i hope, that's why I stopped doing more outdoor autos last week.

Hope they work for you
