First of all, you decide where to start your autoflower grow. Of course you can do this in a grow tent, grow box, a specially reserved room, but maybe you prefer to keep it simple and grow your autoflower in a sunny spot in front of the window. In any case, make sure there is enough light available.
Yes, you can very well grow an autoflower indoors without lights. These plants love to stand on the windowsill in front of the window or in the conservatory. In any case, choose a sunny spot. A window sill or conservatory facing south is preferable. This way you ensure the plant of maximum sunlight.
Note: autoflowers grow quickly and therefore have an increased risk of burning. Keep a close eye on your light and place it a bit higher rather than too low. LED lighting significantly reduces the risk of burning.
As the flowering stage proceeds, you’ll want to continue lowering the humidity if you are growing indoors yet keep your plants well-watered. It is very easy to develop mold during the flowering stage, and that can ruin all of your hard work. That’s why you need to pay attention to the amount of water in the air and soil. A watering can helps you keep track of how much you are giving your plants. We include one in our Complete Kits.
To start germinating your seeds, you will need the proper soil mixture. In general, autoflowers will need fewer nutrients than regular seeds; still, they will need rich potting soil to help support their rapid growth.
You have finally reached the point where your time and energy are about to reap good results. Before you officially get there, you must maintain the perfect conditions, so your plant remains infestation free.

4. Choose the right medium
If the pH drops below 6, the roots will not be able to intake vital nutrients such as magnesium, calcium, and phosphorous. Similarly, if the pH is too alkaline and goes above 7.5, the roots cannot take up micronutrients like copper, manganese, boron, etc. It’s very important to regulate the pH at all times to prevent nutrient deficiencies.
What yield can I expect per autoflowering plant?
The yields depend on genetics, environment, stress, growers skills, and etc.. But in general, you can expect between 50-110 grams per plant.
