The 7gal fabric pot is holding a ManBearAlienPig seed....somewhere. I was putting the seed in the soil last when it fell outta my hand into the soil in a random spot. I tried looking for it to no avail. Should I keep watering it and wait for it to sprout or should I take the L and pop another seed.

The red cup is holding a 3Bears OG crossed with Heisenberg Special, Tooth Decay and Strawberry Nuggets.

Both of these are auto flowers

you should be able to grow two autos in a 7 gallon container pretty comfortably.

I would imagine a 10gal would. The plants won't suffocate? Or get root bound to one another?

Depends. Usually these trees can germinate in a napkin. Try germinating a larger sample in a collection of smaller pots. 10 4-inch pots is a good sample size. You can step them up to bigger pots later. Also, contact your seed provider for germination instructions. There should be something on the packet.

They broke ground even the one I lost. I did 24hr in cup of water and 48 hr in napkin before I threw them in soil

Haha. Sorry. For some reason I thought this was a germination thread, but you really just want to find the seed you dropped. Glad you found it OP. Lol. You can usually depend on cannabis to germinate, even if you just drop the seeds haphazardly. Honestly, randomly sprinkling seeds on the media is probably a lot closer to the way cannabis germinates in the wild, than planting by hand.

I'm so used to clones anyway. I get large teen clones for about 20$ and I veg them for about 2 months before I flower them. I got 2 good plants from seed but they aren't autoflower, these two in the thread are autos and for me, it's taking a bit to grow.

Raising fron seed certainly does take longer than cloning. I like to raise plants from seed, because I feel guilty about using most plant propagation techniques.

Yeah, I thought autoflowers would've sped up the process, unfortunately I know that's not what an autoflower is.

OP, why did you plant that seed in a giant fabric pot from the get go, instead of starting in a smaller container?

Because that's how I've always done it. Transplanting autos is no bueno. Regular seeds don't get shocked when transplanted but autos do. Although, I have one auto in a solo cup as you can see. For me, my results have always been better when I start I'm the finishing pot. The site where I go these autos from say you should start them in the finishing pot to avoid shocking the plant.

I just harvested my pieface og 40grams.

We start plants in smaller containers when they're being stored in an outdoor nursery, because it prevents growth of weeds on the seedling. In a big pot there's too much empty space around the seed where weeds can grow. It looks like OP's growing indoors, so it's a lot less likely that weeds will pop up in his pot.

Do the autos go into shock, even if you transplant into fertilizer and water with cold water immediately afterwards?

I bring them indoors and supplement with indoor light. I give them all the sunlight available, not a nursery, they just sit on top of my patio roof for Max sun.

This is my first time growing an autoflower. I've only read transplanting shocks the autos but I haven't read too much into it, I'm just winging it honestly. I've grown regular seeds before but I'm much more comfortable with clones. I've grown regular seeds in much bigger pots and also even dixie cup shot glasses. I'm assuming autos are much more sensitive. From people who grow autos -"it takes more skill to grow an auto than a reg" from people who grow regs - "autos are for people who can't grow" it's a trip. I'm not an expert grower but I know what works for me, and so far what works for me doesn't work for an auto.
