Nice start and great choice as a 1st grow. soon as she is sprouted and ready for transplant , use her final pot as autos are very sensitive and do not do well with repotting. Bigger pot , bigger plant in general so about 20L min but a 30L would be even better. They grow very very quickly once settled , be prepared for any training you fancy doing ( to get the best result from her) and keep some calmag handy as led does leech cal mag from the plant. As your in soil , an organic calmag would be a good option. Until you see 4 sets of real leaves , just keep using water only too. They cant really take nutes until around that point.. Water a little and often and do it in an outward spiral to encourage new roots to go searching. Once potted up , keep the same watering routine initially. Once they get growing you can then water from the outside edges inwards. This will churn the soil around the rootball gently , bringing much appreciated oxygen to the rhizosphere ( rootball and life within) as the water travels through the pot sucking it behind it. If you need any help , please dont hesitate to drop a message or post on my journal and I will happily walk with you if needed for extra eyes. Welcome to grow diaries , good luck

@Lionsshare,heehee thanks mate and good advice on humidity too. I use towels hanging into buckets of water to keep wicking it up. another simple solution is also to spray your tents walls with fine mist every so often. just to the point they try to form runs of water then let it evaporate. Worked for me last summer in heat waves. Problem with humidifiers and their opposite is they both add heat , great in winter but summer is another matter !. looks like we have it covered with willing eyes now

@Ganjagrandaddy, great advice right there where were you my first auto lol

@BostonDparty, reminds me a lot of my first grow I had same tent size. If your humidity is that low try and raise it up until you start seeing some buds that’s when you want your humidity down low but no lower than 45% when I started and didn’t have much options I used a bucket with water changed regularly or a moist towel hanging in the corner to raise humidity inside the tent. Humidifier is the way to go but they take up a lot of space in a tent this size I found a personal USB powered humidifier on amazon pretty cheap just needed to fill it once a day. Once the plant starts putting on leaves and you water more frequently your humidity should rise naturally. Good luck welcome to grow diaries.
