Autoflower cannabis seeds are a Seedsman speciality. In fact, we were the first seed bank in the world to sell Autoflower cannabis seeds.
Additionally, the smaller size of the plants suits a grower who has limited toom. And they’re easier to look after. An Autoflower cannabis plant hardly grows over four foot tall, which makes the harvesters job of caring, trimming and training an easier task throughout each stage of the grow cycle.
Autoflowering cannabis seeds are seeds that automatically shift from vegetative growth to flowering stages with age rather than the systematic ratio of light exposure. Most ‘autos’ will be ready to harvest in less than 10 weeks from seed.
An Autoflower does not rely on the same amount of light to reach flowering. This means that you can stagger your outdoor grows to harvest multiple times a year.
Autoflowers are also perfect for beginner growers due to their less demanding harvest cycle. Regular strains need constant monitoring and adjusting of the lighting to ensure the plants get their full 12 hours. If you get this wrong, it can lead a plant going back to a vegetative phase which means a ruined plant. Autoflowers mean no worrying about constant lighting. Plus, they grow faster, for those of us who are impatient!
Many growers value speed above all else. If you want to harvest in as little time as possible, autoflowering seeds fit the bill.

We know what you’re thinking; how on Earth can a female suddenly grow balls?! Well, there are two different ways to achieve this.
They developed the ability to flower based on time and age, instead of a change in light exposure.
You’ll save a tremendous amount of time not having to sift males out of your growing space. You can rest easy knowing that your grow tent or garden will remain pollen-free.
Germinating your Auto seeds should take no more finesse than any of our other cannabis seeds in the online store. In fact, they should be treated exactly the same in accordance with our germination guide. You will want to soak the seeds in water for 14 to 18 hours, and then transfer them carefully to a damp, folded paper towel. Keep this entire set up damp in a dark warm place for anywhere from two to seven days. Try not to disturb the seeds in any way during this period, as autoflowering seeds timing can be thrown off if they are handled roughly. Just spray the paper towel with water a few times daily to ensure the seeds do not dry out. The ideal temperature range for autoflower seeds germinating is around 70 to 85 Fahrenheit. Ideal Humidity to crack the seeds is nearly 100%, but just for these first few days.
The Cannabis Ruderalis that helped to define the modern world of autoflowering seeds was native to some places in the Northern hemisphere such as Siberia and the Indian Himalayas. Autoflowering plants are intrinsically good at surviving in harsh climates because these sturdy plants had to grow, flower, and seed in a very short summer season before the harsh northern winters began.
Depending on your state’s local regulations, you may well have restrictions on how many plants that you’re allowed to grow. Autoflower plants are in fact smaller than most typical strains of cannabis, but they do allow for a quick turn-around time. So, if you set things up properly in a well-designed grow room or dedicated weed-cultivation space, you can have a continuous crop of excellent marijuana. With even just four autoflowering plants, you can rotate your planting schedule so that you always have one new auto seed germinating when your most mature plant is ready for harvest.
Autoflower Super Silver Haze
Autoflowering cannabis is inherently smaller than many photoperiod strains and as a result yields will be limited to how much weight the small plant can support. Auto flowering growers can typically expect anywhere from a half ounce to two ounces of bud per plant. There are also Super Autos that can produce up to four to six ounces per plant, when grown by an experienced cannabis grower. Try some of our top producing auto strains such as Auto Triple XL Fem or Auto Bruce Banner Fem. Having autoflowering seeds feminized creates the perfect opportunity for beginners and you can still achieve a premium crop by following the tried and tested methods approved by 149 seed bank growers.
One of the biggest questions of debate within a grower’s own mind is ”when should I start flowering my marijuana plants?” The flowers are ultimately the most valuable part of the plant, containing the most cannabinoids. The easiest way for new growers to avoid the struggle with this internal debate is to buy high quality certified auto-flowering seeds that will begin the flowering cycle all on their own!

Even though the technology behind auto flowering seeds is quite simple, the cost was initially high because of the novelty factor and also the shortage of supply. Now we have the access to bulk seed breeders that specialize in auto seeds, which has brought down the cost considerably. If you want to find the best deals on high quality feminized auto-flower seeds, be sure to scan through the inventory that i49 seed bank has to offer. We aim to put out the most competitive pricing on the market, and then occasionally throw some autoflowering seed coupon codes out to our return customers.
