Hi @starphish! Don't move these out yet, it's too cold, this will lead to slow growth and stunted plants for the whole run. Autos are very sensitive to EVERYTHING. Plus, they're too young for transplantation, you will probably kill them. Keep them inside for a few weeks, within good containers such as AirPots/SmartPots (11L/3gal). They will appreciate the comfort of your tent for a good vegetative stage, before having to live into the outdoor wildness :laughing: Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

Are the temps outside or in the greenhouse. If you have under 15C° at night you should wait some weeks.(greenhouse)

I think as long as you have them in a spot that's getting at least 6+ hours of direct sunlight then going outside should be fun. The only thing I'd maybe be wary of is that powdery mildew and botrytis thrive around the 16 temperatures. But if you're able to utilize a green house you should be alright. If you didn't have that I would maybe think its a smidge early...but the autos are after all crossed with the ruderalis strain which is built for colder short summer climates...they may even be a bit more resistant to disease as well (but that might not apply to all autos).
I want to do some out door autos this year and my outdoor season starts about the same temps, maybe just a touch warmer.
