    Just to add to conversation. Would it be correct to say that autoflowering cannabis is more mold resistant than photoperiods,due to ruderalis gene in them?

      Generally speaking, these are hardy plants. Autos tend to be bug and mildew resistant, but a few strains are more challenging than others. The ruderalis genetic tends to toughen it up a bit, which makes it ideal for first time growers.

      People who are over or under feeding or struggle with some basics might want to grow autoflowers. Their fast flowering time will allow you to continue to try if your plants die out.

          Yes photoperiod strains also don't mind flowering nutes all the way through. I prefer to do this as I don't particularly want overly lush, leafy plants.

            I am growing autos for the first time under mh and hps I am wondering what's the best way to tell when you should switch your lights over is it same for lights and nutes wait till the stretch is over or slowed down?

              18/6 or 20/4 throughout cycle.

                  You could run either light start to finish on autos, but hps has more lumens so I would go with it especially now that it is blooming.
