Ive tried autos, maybe a few years ago, they just cant withstand the guerilla hardiness test
they get a knock back and it just ruins the whole season.
I need hard as fuck plants, like British bulldogs
(Bad example pic is from site that says they are so inbred/ill they may never be returned to former glory)
I dont pick the environment to suit the plant, the plant HAS to suit the environment, that means adapting local varieties.
The nepal x deimos is a fast version of nepal landrace and that seems to be doing really well but its in neat compost, will try it in the ground next year.
This may be the way I go, Auto crosses of proven strains/fast versions
