Hi, Im preparing on my first indoor grow.
Strains- Ak47x Diesel, Ak48
Lights- 600 watt HPS with switchable MH


Grow Tent- 56''x56''x78.5'' or in other words [4.5ftx4.5ftx6.5ft]
the grow tent is going to be lined with mylar with a 4" High Velocity Inline Fan hooked up to a carbon filter.

Im going to be starting off the seedlings under the MH on 20/4 as most suggest for autoflowering strains in dixie cups with fox farm happy frog.
Once there sexed they will be moved to 5 gallon grow bags filled with FFOF and some perlite


Main question is Will a 600 watt HPS be enough for 10-12 plants?

Also if I let a female get pollinated with another male autoflower will the seeds produced from the female be autoflowering seeds so I dont need to make another investment?

Thanks :D

Im about to do the same thing with the same plants. Although Im doing, akxdiesel, akxblue, and easyrider. Using a CAP ebb&gro and wantewd to do about 12 in same size tent. I have a 600wt switchable BUT, going to be using a 6ft light rail diaginaly. I think the light rail is key if you are using 600watts, especially with that many plants. This will be my second autoflower grow with this. The first was lowryder#2. Turned out very well but I could see that a light rail would help alot!
