I like to put autos straight to final home and give them in growing stage good amount of Root juice and cal - mag + humic acid to boost vigorous growth. Too much nitrogen in that stage can make flowering stage to take longer to kick in.
Happy growing!

Hi @Thomas! I start my autos into tiny AirPots container (0.5L). This way I'm totally unable to overwater, I can watch the roots progress and find my perfect transplantation day, and they require less space so I can start under a tiny light in a tiny box/closet. Transplanting autos can be risky, but with AirPots the ease of use makes this process stress-less for the seedlings. Hope this will help, keep us updated and happy growing! :facepunch:

You want to minimize stress by avoiding any transplanting or environmental changes. This means starting it in a 5-7 gallon and using a humidity dome to keep moisture in, and then periodically remove the dome the first week. I would also avoid any high stress training and just use tie downs to get the canopy to spread evenly for light. Happy grow and God bless!

Starting in a solo cup seems to work best for me. The short wet / dry cycle really helps in building a healthy root zone. After that train in whatever way you like best; for me it's topping with LST
