Autoflowering cannabis seeds
Autoflowering cannabis seeds are seeds that flower automaticly when reaching maturity in about 2 to 4 weeks. Unlike regular or feminised seeds, which need to be exposed to a 12-hour lighting schedule to invoke flowering, autoflowering seeds will start their flowering period regardless of light conditions. To create auto flowering seeds, various Indica, and to a lesser extend Sativa strains, are crossbred with Ruderalis strains to obtain their autoflowering genes.
Autoflowering seeds contain as well feminised characteristics, thus removing the need to identify and remove any male plants.
Autoflowering seeds are very suitable for beginners, since they provide a simple and easy growing process with good harvests. These automatic plants are very suitable for indoors, as well as outdoor growing on balconies or in small gardens. With the right growlights, they can reach maturity within a period of just 10 weeks. For the best results, autoflowering plants should be exposed to at least 18 hours of light daily.
Because of their wild cannabis genes, autoflower seeds will produce more robust and pest resistant plants, that will flower faster and much earlier in summer then Sativa or Indica species. Autoflowering seeds have a quite short growing and flowering period, are cold resistant and can give multiple harvests a year even outdoors. Howerever, because of their smaller and shorter size, yields and THC levels will be slightly lower as well.
