autoflowering seeds feminized

In addition, these strains are a great choice for gardeners in less warm climate areas who wish to grow on open ground, or on a balcony or window ledge, but find themselves restricted by short summers.

Grown outside, automatic seeds can produce two or more crops in the course of a normal summer. Under lights, ‘autos’ can go from seedling to fully mature plant in as little as 10 weeks. As an added bonus, most are also very hardy and resistant to fungal infections, mould, pests and even frost, due to their extremely robust, northern Eurasian genetic lineage – the Ruderalis – that evolved the ability to flower at will in order to survive. Seeds that automatically flower can be grown indoors, out of doors or in a greenhouse. In addition, all seeds in this category are feminized and from a wide range of genetics, offering different kinds of flavour, aroma and effect.

In terms of turnover, these seeds are capable of producing reasonably sized yields even with a less intense light source. However, the general rule that the greater the light intensity, the better the results, holds true here too. It should also be remembered that how much these types will give is governed by the final size of the plant – a windowsill crop of virtually dwarf cannabis is never going to produce as much as it would in large pots under high-intensity light. In general, however, the amount of bud eventually gleaned from seeds in this section is favourably comparable with that of regular or feminized seeds from the same variety.

Feminized autoflowering cannabis seeds are easy to cultivate: They flower without the need to change light cycles or remove males. Automatic seeds are ideal for new growers, and for those who want a low-maintenance growing experience. Sensi Seeds’ sativas, indicas and hybrids (high THC or high CBD) are ideal for medicinal and recreational cannabis users alike.

Ideal for beginners

Yes, ruderalis is one of the most forgiving cannabis strains because it has experience with colder environments than other cannabis varieties. This doesn’t mean, however, that you can put your autoflowering seeds out in bone-chilling winter temps and expect them to survive.

Let’s be frank: people in the 21st century have no patience . Whenever we want something (especially cannabis!), we want it right now. Many home growers don’t want to invest the time it takes to grow an average indica or sativa strain of cannabis. Yeah, yeah, it’s probably true that “enduring patience is the highest austerity,” but there’s nothing wrong with wanting to speed the weed process. Luckily for impatient cultivators, there is an easy way to cut your total growing time down to about ten weeks: invest in autoflowering seeds.

Cannabis cultivators recommend growing autoflowering seeds outside to take advantage of the natural sunlight. If, however, this isn’t a possibility in your region, be prepared to pay extra on your electricity bill.

Learn Training Techniques

It’s worth highlighting the pro that autoflowering seeds take away the stress of monitoring your plant’s light cycle every day. You could literally give this plant about 16 hours of light every day, and it will reach maturity with no issues.

Use common sense if you’re growing your autoflowering seeds late in the season. If it’s going to be cold outside, then cover your plant with a blanket or bring it inside for warmth.

To squeeze the most yield out of their autoflowering seeds, many home growers give their cannabis plant the maximum amount of light possible every day. Obviously, this strategy will add a not-so-pleasant increase in your energy costs.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when growing your first batch of autoflowering seeds.

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!

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.

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.

Due to their genetic composition, Autoflowering plants are usually smaller than other regular seed cannabis plants. When you compare an Autoflower grow to photoperiod feminised cannabis plants, they’re better at surviving pests and mould.

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.
