autoflowering seeds feminized

Autoflowers also need much less time to grow. Some varieties are ready to harvest in a short 8 weeks after sprouting. Plus, autoflowers are compact, which makes them great for indoor growing. Because they are so convenient, autoflowers are (not just) ideal for beginners to cannabis cultivation. More experienced growers can also take advantage of the unique growing traits of autoflowering cannabis.

With autoflowers being smaller and having a smaller root system, they will also drink less than large feminized photoperiod plants. Don’t overwater, and allow the soil to dry out between waterings.

Particularities of Autoflowers

These days, autoflowers can satisfy even the most demanding of users: Recreational users won’t have difficulties finding automatic varieties rich in THC, and holistic users can get autoflowers low in THC but high in CBD to benefit from the non-psychoactive cannabinoid.

Lowryder was the very first “commercial” autoflower, released in the early 2000s. Based on these legendary genetics are Royal Queen Seeds’ Quick One, Diesel Automatic, and Solomatic CBD—the latter of which is aimed toward holistic users, as it contains 21% CBD and less than 1% THC.

In general, autoflowers are smaller than feminized photoperiod cannabis. Smaller plants require less nutrients than large plants.

We recommend sowing seeds in waves every few weeks across the growing season for a harvest every fortnight.

Autoflower weed seeds contain genetics from Cannabis ruderalis, a subtype that originates from Russia and surrounding regions.

If you’re a beginner and unsure where to start, we suggest using the Autoflowering Starter Kit for the easiest experience possible.

How To Grow Outdoor Autoflower Seeds

When it comes to watering, be careful not to overdo things. Autos have a smaller root system than photoperiod strains and require much less water.

Autoflowers are easy to grow outdoors during almost any time of the year.

As a rule, we suggest using half of the recommended dose when applying RQS products such as Easy Boost, Easy Grow, and Easy Bloom.

Although hardy, autoflower cannabis still requires certain temperatures and humidity levels to provide optimal results. Aim for these parameters:

The best of all worlds? Possibly. Autoflowering, feminized cannabis seeds will flower without a change in the life cycle and will result in nearly 100% female plants. Like any autoflowering seed strain, you should expect a slightly smaller harvest than a crop of the same strain grown from “regular” seeds. And of course, the convenience of autoflowering marijuana seeds make them a bit more pricey.

You may recognize the name, Amnesia Haze, it’s pretty famous. With genetics from both South Asia and Jamaica, this is a high-yield strain that will produce up to 500 grams of flower per square meter of grow space. Keep in mind, that Amnesia Haze grows tall, so make sure you have enough room. With THC levels over 20% expect a strong head stone and little to no body-buzz. A tasty smoke, you’ll get earthy notes with fruity undertones.

Autoflower seeds begin to flower according to their age. “Regular” seeds flower in response to a change in the life cycle, i.e. when your plants are developed enough to flower, you would switch the light cycle from 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness (18-6) to 12 hours of light and twelve hours of darkness (12-12). Autoflowering strains are “easier” in the sense that you don’t have to switch the light cycle, they just start flowering when they’re ready.

This mostly Indica strain is great for taking a break from the hustle and bustle of daily life, providing relaxing effects and a pleasurable smoke.

This particular cultivar will go from seed to bud in about 65 days. This dwarf strain is a great choice for growers who’d like to keep a low profile grow without sacrificing yield (30-45 grams per plant). Users report a blueberry flavored taste and smell.
