What to know about autoflowering cannabis seeds?

Autoflowering cannabis seeds germinate into plants that start flowering on their own after 2-4 weeks of growth. Unlike light-flowering varieties, growers do not have to worry about changing the light cycle to induce the flowering phase.

Autoflowering varieties need much less time to grow. Some varieties can be harvested as early as 8 weeks after germination. These varieties are also compact, making them great for growing indoors. All of these reasons make autoflowering varieties a great choice (not only) for beginners. More experienced growers can take advantage of their unique characteristics.

Non-photoperiodic varieties: what does this actually mean?

cannabis buds autoflowersFeminized (light-loving – photoperiodic) cannabis plants grow according to how many hours of light they receive. In nature, these plants start to flower when the days start to get shorter at the end of summer. Indoors, growers must initiate flowering by changing the light cycle to 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness.

On the other hand, autoflowering varieties flower according to their age and not according to the hours of light received. Autoflowering varieties have several important characteristics:

  • Plants flower automatically after 2-4 weeks.
  • On average, they are ready for harvest 10 weeks after planting.
  • Autoflowering seeds are also feminized so you don’t have to worry about male plants.
  • The plants are small in stature (30-100 cm).
  • They don’t attract as much attention and so are ideal for discreet growing.
  • You can harvest multiple crops in one season.

Peculiarities of autoflowering cannabis seeds

growing cannabisAutoflowering strains first appeared on the market at the turn of the millennium and were not very impressive then. They were not strong varieties, they had a weak aroma and also low yields.

But they have come a long way since then. Modern autoflowering varieties can compete with (and in some cases surpass) light-flowering varieties in terms of vigour, yield and flavour. However, they still retain the unique characteristics we have already mentioned and remain hardy and stable varieties.

These days, autoflowering varieties can satisfy even the most demanding users. Recreational users will have no problem finding a variety of autoflowering strains that are rich in THC, and holistic users can find low-THC, high-CBD autoflowering strains.
