Autoflower Cannabis Seeds

Autoflower cannabis seeds are genetically programmed to start flowering automatically after 8-10 weeks of growth. They are usually short in stature and ready to harvest in as short as 8 weeks, which makes them perfect for novice or beginner growers.

What are autoflower cannabis seeds?

Autoflower seeds are the result of crossbreeding cannabis plants with a wild strain of cannabis called, “Cannabis Ruderalis.” These Ruderalis hybrid cannabis plants flower fully automatically without changing light cycles.

Usually a traditional cannabis plant would require reduced lighting hours to initiate its flowering sequence. But autoflower marijuana strains will begin flowering fully automatically, hence the name.

This makes it extremely easy for new growers and cannabis hobbyists to start growing their own weed from home.

What are some other benefits of autoflower marijuana seeds?

Auto-flowering marijuana seeds have a few additional benefits compared to traditional photoperiod feminized cannabis seeds.

Firstly, autoflower cannabis plants grow faster and can be harvested in as little as 8-10 weeks, which is significantly faster than photoperiod plants that require a specific light cycle to trigger flowering.

Secondly, autoflower cannabis plants are generally short in stature, which can be beneficial for indoor growers who have limited space or outdoor growers who want to be discreet about their marijuana plants.

Autoflower cannabis plants are also more resistant to pests and diseases, which, again, can make them easier to grow for new growers.

6 awesome tips on how to grow your own autoflower cannabis

Here are six great tips for growing autoflower cannabis seeds:

  1. Choose the right soil: Use a high-quality soil mix that has excellent draining properties, and has a pH level between 6.0 and 7.0.
  2. Provide plenty of light: Autoflower cannabis plants do not require a specific lighting schedule like a traditional photoperiod cannabis plant. However, they still need plenty of light to grow and produce good yields. We recommend providing 18 to 24 hours of light per day.
  3. Feed appropriate nutrients:Start with a low dose of nutrients once a week will suffice before it flowers. Once it begins to go into the flowering stage, you will need to feed it 2-3 times a week with focus on phosphorus and potassium.
  4. Control humidity and temperature:Most autoflower cannabis plants thrive in warm and humid environments. Make sure to keep the ambient temperature between 70 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit and the humidity between 40 to 70%.
  5. Don't over-water: Water when the soil feels dry to the touch. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so be careful not to overdo it.
  6. Harvest your plants: You will be able to harvest your long awaited buds in 8 to 12 weeks. When the buds are ripe and ready, cut them off and dry them before storing or using them. Make sure to handle them carefully so you don't lose too much of the resin from the trichomes. Once it is thoroughly dried, carefully cut away any branches, twigs, and leaves around the flowers so they won't impact your smoking experience.

How much cannabis can an autoflower seed produce?

The amount of weed produced by autoflower seeds can vary greatly depending on various factors such as the growing conditions, genetics of the strain, and the expertise of the grower. On average, autoflower seeds can yield anywhere between 20 to 200 grams of weed per plant. However, some experienced growers have reported yields of up to 500 grams per plant under ideal growing conditions.

It’s important to note that the yield of autoflower seeds is generally lower than that of photoperiod strains, which can yield up to 500 grams or more per plant. However, autoflower seeds have the advantage of being easier to grow and having a faster life cycle, so you can grow more of them at a faster rate.

How tall do autoflowering strains get?

Autoflower cannabis plants typically grow to be between 1 to 3 feet tall (30 to 90 cm). However, the actual height can vary depending on various factors such as the genetics of the plant, growing conditions, and how the plant is trained or pruned. Some strains may grow taller than others, and plants that are grown in optimal conditions with plenty of light and nutrients may also grow taller than those grown in less favorable conditions. It’s important to note that auto-flower plants have a shorter life cycle than photoperiod plants, typically around 8 to 10 weeks from seed to harvest, which can also affect their final size.

What are the first signs of flowering in autoflower seeds?

The first signs of cannabis plant flowering are the appearance of small white hairs, called pistils, on the plant. These pistils emerge at the nodes where the branches meet the main stem of the plant. Initially, they may be difficult to spot, but as they grow, they become more noticeable.

In addition to the appearance of pistils, the cannabis plant may exhibit other signs of flowering, such as changes in the shape and color of the leaves, and the growth of small, bulbous structures called calyxes. The growth of these structures is a key indicator that the plant has entered the flowering vegetative stage.

It’s worth noting that the timing and duration of the flowering stage can vary depending on the specific strain of cannabis and the growing conditions. Some strains may begin to flower after just a few weeks of vegetative growth, while others may take several months. It’s important for growers to be familiar with the characteristics of their chosen strain and to closely monitor their plants during the flowering stage to ensure a successful harvest.
