Starting a photo in final pot?!

Hi all, 

 

I have read in numerous places that an autoflower should be potted in its final container...

 

Can this be done with a photoperiod? Or should it not be done with a photo?!

 

And what size pot is recommended, i was looking into 12 ltr smart pots (fabric ones)

 

Planning on using Bio bizz light mix and the biobizz nutrients...

 

Thanks in advance

This, you really need to pot up gradually mate, 3-4 times is good, this creates a denser root ball and leads to bigger yields ime.

 

It also makes watering much easier and less chance of a stagnating medium where the soil stays wet too long due to not enough roots to drain it often enough.

Usually I go from 200ml party cup > 1.4 litre > 3.5 litre>6.5 litre (final pot) around 2 weeks in each pot maybe a tad more,when rooted out pot them up and get a good rootmass established before you flower them.

Agree with Tenchie here. My seedlings are in a tiny pot, then I'll pot up to a slightly bigger one then in a 6.5lt finisher.

If space isnt an issue such as outdoors, and you are using large pots then Id go straight in to finals, this will produce more explosive growth leading to bigger plants.  Indoors can be better to have slightly more controlled, smaller plants.

I grow in hydro so clueless on these things me. But if I wanted 1 plant in compost like a 60litre pot would 1 of them air pruning pots of a smaller size do the same job? 

Have plans on a big mother

Ive done this several times in a 65 litre no till pot.But the soil is kept at constant moisture level.

 

Unless your running no till id follow the above advice.
