I decided to search for any products designed specifically to meet the requirements of autos to make the grow as simple and foolproof as possible. I checked the websites of 47 nutrient companies and was surprised to find only 4 products specifically for autos. Initially I was also surprised that 3 of them were Spanish but then I realized why that probably was, Spain has probably got the second richest marijuana culture in Europe after the Netherlands and Spain is also the home of the Sweet Seeds seed bank which has been at the forefront of developing top quality auto flowering varieties since the beginning. If you already like or want to try autoflowering plants you can’t go wrong with one of the many auto strains from sweet Seeds!
Below are the products I have found, all are by reputable manufacturers. If anyone knows of any other similar products I would be very grateful if you could send the information (send to firstname.lastname@example.org ) as I would like to add a “Growing Autoflowering Plants” section on our website.
Please note – I am not affiliated in any way with any of these companies and I have received no money or favors for promoting them!

This is the first of two videos looking at ventilation and air filtration/odour control. In this video we look at the 4 reasons for ventilation and get an idea how often you need to change the air in a grow space. Later it covers the different types of fans (axial and radial) and the strengths and weaknesses of both types.
The second video will cover air filters and the different types of activated carbon (charcoal) used in them and the difference between the types and which is most suitable for grow space odour removal. Finally you will get to see a revolutionary new ventilation system from Plant Photonics which has been designed from the ground up for tent and small cab growers.
