Yo, what’s up people! It’s your boy Dan coming at you with some straight-up knowledge on autoflowering cannabis seeds. If you’re looking to grow some fire without all the hassle of switching up your light schedule, then you need to get your hands on some of these bad girls. They don’t just save you time, but they also produce some dank buds that rival even the best feminized photoperiod strains.
So, what exactly are autoflowering seeds, you ask? Well, let me break it down for you. Unlike feminized photoperiod plants, which rely on changes in light to initiate and maintain their flowering phase, autoflowers bloom based on age. That means you can keep them on a regular 18/6 or 24/0 light schedule from seed to harvest. And get this, they only take about 8-10 weeks to grow from seed to harvest, making them perfect for those who want a quick turnaround.
Autoflowers also stay small (usually at 1-3 feet), making them great for stealthy grows in small spaces or balconies. And because they’re compact, they’re ideal for outdoor growers looking to keep things low key.
You might be thinking that autoflowers don’t pack the same punch as their feminized counterparts, but let me tell you that couldn’t be further from the truth. These days, breeders have refined autoflowers to create strains that are just as potent, if not more so than traditional photoperiod strains. Plus, they come in a variety of terpene profiles that offer unique tastes and aromas unlike anything else out there.
Now, I know you might be thinking that growing autos is difficult and requires a lot of maintenance. But trust me when I say that it’s actually quite the opposite. Autoflowers are easy to grow and require less nutrients than their larger photoperiod counterparts. If you’re using commercial nutrients, you only need to give them about half or a quarter of the recommended dose. And if you’re using pre-fertilized potting mixes, you won’t need to feed them until they start to bloom.
When it comes to water, autoflowers will drink less than larger plants. So, make sure not to overwater them and allow the soil to dry out between waterings. The optimal pH level for your autoflowers is around 6-7, so make sure to adjust your water accordingly using natural pH “up” or “down” products.
Now, let’s talk about some of the best autoflowering strains out there. If you’re into Kush strains, then you’ll want to check out OG Kush Auto and Purple Kush Auto. These are autoflowering variants of classic strains that offer fruity and spicy notes. And for those who love Haze strains, there’s Amnesia Haze Auto, Super Lemon Haze Auto, and Jack Herer Auto. These offer cerebral buzzes that are perfect for daytime smoking.
If you’re a fan of Cheese strains from the UK, then Cheese Auto and Blue Cheese Auto are right up your alley. And if you want something a bit more mellow, then check out CBD Kush Auto, which is fairly low in THC but rich in CBD for a clear and mellow high.
So there you have it folks, everything you need to know about autoflowering cannabis seeds. Happy growing!
