Once again the geographical origins of Afghan Fem strain seeds factor heavily into its growth cycle. The harsh climates within which it originated created the necessity of a fast flowering time.

Generally speaking, the strain flowers in between seven to ten weeks. Patience is a virtue when growing cannabis seeds at home so novice growers will also do well with the shorter flowering times gaining valuable experience in a lessened period of time.
