Hi guys, keen to know everyones experiences of training autos. I have read a number of conflicting reports on the topic, some say to stay away of training autos, others say it can be done in the right conditions.

Β 

If you train, what method would you use, and has anyone got any tips?

At the moment I am thinking SCROG but open to suggestions

Β 

thanks in advance

one of the main things to consider when training autos is your time frame, you want all your training to be all set before your plant is beginning to flower.

Monkeydo has said on the podcast a few times about how he trains his autos, always within the first 30 days.

another useful thing to consider is container size and shape, when the main tap root hits to bottom of the container the root's spread out to the sides, once it starts to get root bound the plant will start to go into flower.

multiple toppings and a SCROG, can definitely be done just make sure its all done before she starts going into flower. with a SOG set up with smaller square containers can also yield good results. square containers allow you to more effectively fit plants into your lights footprint.

bare in mind i haven't done any of these myself this is all mostly based on reading Ive done and the podcast, but i definitely plan on trying various training methods.

above all enjoy the journey of learning to grow, there may be set backs but keep going and keep growing.

Yes you can train, LST, top, Auto's whatever you want as long as you stop when you start to see her sex, like @Zictex said just stop when she starts flower. If you have a strong growing auto it can take a lot of abuse. If you take a strain like Girl Scout Cookies then hell yes you can do whatever you want. They will produce a lb per plant and if not trained they can grow out of control. Each plant will be different in each environment so if their growing well then have at it. I've topped one auto 9 times and was huge, and @Bubblehok isn't capable of growing a small auto and doesn't believe in topping an auto's, I think it's a religious thing. lol So in the end it's your auto do what you want. Have fun!! 🀣

Autoflower plant can mean anything between 10cm - 200cm plant. So training techicues really depend on your strains and phenos and growing style.

Β 

If it has hairs, then dont top anymore. Too late. Lst after hairs.

@gmac2k22 After about 4th node when they are tall enough to effectively do it, I attach green garden wire near the top in a sturdy spot and bend the plant over 75-90ish degree angle attaching other end of garden wire to either grommet on pot or tucked under the pot.Β  It is super effective for growing monster autos!Β  Β  Just be gentle and go slowly.
