Tips for growing autoflowering cannabis seeds

Autoflowering cannabis strains are very specific, so it doesn’t hurt to have plenty of knowledge on how to grow these cannabis strains. If you’re a beginner and don’t know much, we’ve put together some useful hints and tips on how to get the most out of these strains. Let’s do it.

Prepare the soil for cannabis seeds cultivation

The most important thing here is to choose a medium that contains sufficient nutrients. It should not be fertilised in the first few weeks, so it is important to give the plants what they need to grow. There are many combinations of how to make but a good quality medium, but only one option is best. Black soil from the field works best. Of course, you need to put some layer of airier soil on top for the germination stage. Some may argue that dirt from the field is unusable. For those people, we recommend looking at some threads where colleagues are growing in corn. Most of the time they don’t even fertilize and the results are impressive.

The Germination method

It is a good idea to germinate with moistened napkins at the beginning, then put them in planters and finally directly into the substrate in which the flower will go through its entire cycle. Some even grow in a planter all the time. The most convenient for many is to put the seeds directly into the soil. Some species take longer to germinate, so it takes a while for the first specimens to show, but only the best ones break through to the surface and continue to grow much better than the specimens you tinker with and still don’t want them. It is also essential that the plant should hardly be repotted at all, lest it get a shock, which could have catastrophic consequences.

The Vegetative phase

Here it is a good idea to let the ward pull up. Choose a place where the sun does not shine all day. The flowers will pull up and have longer stamens in bloom. Add fertiliser for growth after about 3 weeks. If you have the right substrate, there is no need to fertilize at all. Some models are prone to overfertilization, so use caution and do not give higher doses than recommended by the manufacturer. Be sure not to cut or tear the leaves.

The Flowering phase

The males will be a few days quicker if you are growing for seeds, pick the best ones and pull the rest. About half way through flowering (or even earlier) it’s a good idea to make a plastic shelter for them, if the flowers get a shower they get mould very quickly. Resistance is really poor, so keep an eye on it. In bloom I fertilize at the recommended rate about once a week for the first month, then flush. Typical trait is yellowing and leaf drop from about the fifth week of bloom, even if you feed the plants well. Leave them in as long as you can, but again, not too long for them to start …to begin to rot.

Your cannabis is ready to harvest

Then comes the favourite season and that is the harvest. How do you know when to harvest your cannabis plants? Simple, as soon as the colour of the stamens on the cones turns brown, you’re good to go.

We hope that this knowledge will be of benefit to you. We must also point out that these are not generic tips, but rather a compilation of personal experiences. This is to say that not all people use similar methods and practices, it will always vary in some way.
