advice on how to grow auto seedling outdoors HELP PLEASE

  1. i ordered some autoflower seeds and wondered after germinating and planting them how i go about them getting direct sunlight outdoors. i live in south texas where its fucking hot and the seedlings ive tried growing usually end up with the typical fried cooked leaf look and die. when my germinated seed is forming into a seedling in my soil mix should it still get sunlight or should i keep it in the shade till i see that it has sprouted? there is a spout ive considered that gets direct sunlight from 8:30 to around 3 and is a bit cooler than the other wide open sun spot where i tried to grow previous plants, does this sound like it would work for anybody that has grown autoflower strains outdoors before? advice is greatly helpful thanks guys
  2. Def shade. It'll be fine. But before they pop out of the soil you should keep them inside and in a closed container with some holes or a hole big enough to let a little humidity out but most contained.

    Them put them outside. Make sure to use good soil, good water that is ph'd at 6.5, and a 3 or 5 gallon bucket.
  3. thanks so much. btw would 8 hrs of direct sunlight be enough for the vegging and flowering stage or should i transplant it to a spot with more sun when it starts to flower?
  4. Plant where they will get the most sunlight. Germinate first, then sprout in the buckets with a good soil mix. DO NOT let the seedlings dry out.
  5. thanks for the help i think im about ready to get this started :)
