Autoflowering Marijuana Seeds

Autoflowering cannabis varieties are hybrids, the beginning of the transition to the flowering phase of which does not depend on the light regime. This means that autoflowering cannabis varieties begin to bloom when they reach a certain age, which is genetically determined. Indica and Sativa are not endowed with this ability, it is found only in the wild weed hemp – Ruderalis.

The breeders decided to cross the common photoperiod varieties with Ruderalis to combine the positive qualities. This is how hemp seeds of autoflowering varieties with Indica, Sativa and Ruderalis genes appeared.

Rapid growth is the main benefit of cannabis autoflowering marijuana strains.

Feminized Auto Seeds

Feminized Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds are seeds from which only female cannabis grows. Therefore, there is no need to worry about the quality of the crop due to the appearance of male plants.

Lighting autoflowering varieties
Photoperiodic and autoflowering marijuana varieties require fundamentally different lighting conditions for the growth and reproduction of offspring.

The flowering stage of autoflowering cannabis varieties is much easier than that of fotik. The fact is that the autos switch to color on their own, regardless of the length of daylight hours. The main thing is that the day is longer than the night, and the weather conditions contribute to growth. This allows the grower to grow several crops per year in the open field, and completely relieves the grower of the need to control the light regime in the closed field.

Growth phases of autoflowering

An autoflowering plant goes into the flowering phase on its own, about 3 weeks after germination of the seed, regardless of the season and light conditions, and the flowering itself lasts about 5-7 weeks (depending on the variety). The entire life cycle of an autoflowering plant lasts an average of about 8 weeks. Thus, up to 4 crops can be grown throughout the year, depending on night temperatures during the cold period.

Features of growing indoor autoflowering

Lighting

Since compliance with the light regime is not required for autoflowering varieties, it is customary to set an 18/6 cycle in indoor conditions throughout the life of the plant. However, there are growers who recommend 20/4 during the growing season and 18/6 during the flowering phase. Blue light is the best for plant growth, while red is more suitable for flowering. Therefore, it is recommended to use lamps with the appropriate spectrum for each stage.

The soil

Autoflowering cannabis strains prefer loose soil with little fertilization. You need to choose one where the amount of nutrients (NPK) is the least. However, perlite and vermiculite must be present in the soil. Their number should be approximately 30%.

Pot volume

Since the life cycle of autos is small, their root system does not have time to develop strongly. A pot with a volume of 3-15 liters will be enough for them. It is important that the seed is planted immediately in the selected pot. Otherwise, in the process of transplanting, the plant will undergo stress, and precious time will be spent on getting out of it.

Temperature

The most favorable temperature range for the growth of autoflowers is considered to be the interval between +22 and +35 degrees. It is better to maintain one value all the time so that the plant feels safe. The best temperature is +27 degrees.
