These are the really interesting ones, the ones that offer a great balance between speed and performance. The automatic genetics that take the least time to produce a large crop usually have a whole culture cycle of 70 to 75 days, and among them the following stand out:
Don’t rely too much on people telling you that you can harvest a cannabis plant in less than 50 days from germination, because it’s impossible for it to be ripe or to have reached a good size.
Automatic flowering varieties are the easiest to grow, resistant, adaptable, strong and especially fast. Some stand out for their large production, others contain a good aroma and taste, some are quite powerful, but in this post we will review the autoflowering genetics with a faster cycle. Are you in? Let’s have a look at them…
? Faster and more productive autoflowering seeds
Autoflowering plants don’t rely on light or dark hours to grow and flower like photo-dependent cannabis plants. Auto strains begin flowering once they reach sexual maturity, and it may come 3 or 4 weeks after germination.
From the Lowryder came the Lowryder#2, which needed a few more days to complete its cycle, but it is of higher quality. The vast majority of autoflowering strains nowadays come from crosses with Lowryder#2, and have a total growing cycle of 65 or 70 days or more
One way to speed up the pace of cultivation is to plant the autoflowering seed in a small pot. When the roots realize that they do not have enough substrate they anticipate their flowering in order to be able to finish the cycle with the available nutrients.
The fastest autoflowering plants are those that bloom with only 20 days of growth. The problem with these plants is that they do not have time to reach a good size before they start to flower, so they are quite small.
One of the largest reasons growers choose autoflowers is how fast they can mature from seed to chop. Autoflower seeds like Fast Buds’ are ready in 8-10 weeks, meaning you can harvest twice or even three times in the time it would take you to grow a photoperiodic plant.
Below, we break down the fastest growing autoflower strains from Fast Buds. If speed is what you’re after, you’ll find it here. Don’t forget to check out our guide detailing when is the best time to harvest autoflowering cannabis.
Feminized cannabis seeds are designed to produce only female plants. Feminized seeds will produce a female plant 99.99% of the time. Don’t waste your time trying to produce flower from a male plant – they will only pollinate you females, resulting in seeds rather than bud.
Our autoflowering varieties, on the other hand, are the fastest in our archive. Infused with Cannabis ruderalis genetics, these cultivars don’t require external cues to flower. Instead, they surge from seed to harvest in a matter of weeks, making them perfect for stealthy home growers.
Easy Bud received her name for good reason. As well as being one of the easiest cannabis strains to grow, she also boasts one of the fastest growing cycles. Her speedy and robust nature makes her ideal for those seeking a fast turnover, and those ready to take their first step into the world of growing weed.
Some of our most popular selections in this category include:
Quick One is one of the fastest auto-growing strains on the planet. The plant is based on the original auto flowering strain – Lowryder. This strain was created from a cross between William’s Wonder x Northern Lights x Ruderalis. These plants are usually ready for harvest in 8 weeks from germination. The plants also reach between 50 and 60 cm and can yield up to 150g per plant.
You’ve never seen flowers like these before. Seriously. Alongside her fruity terpenes and high THC content, Watermelon Automatic boasts stunning shades of deep purple, bright orange, and dark green. You won’t have to wait long to experience their beauty. The strain develops a canopy loaded with flowers only 8–9 weeks after germination.
