Autoflowering marijuana seeds
Autoflowering cannabis seeds have become an essential product for marijuana beginner growers. These varieties are the result of crossing a Ruderalis with an indica or sativa strain and they stand out because they flower automatically without needing photoperiodic changes. This means that buds grow naturally much faster regardless of them being grown indoors or outdoors. These non-photoperiod dependent strains flower spontaneously after between 2 and 4 weeks of growth, therefore, they require less growth time. Autoflowering plants are short and compact, they rarely grow past 100 cm in height and offer various crops per season.
Autoflowering Seed Characteristics
- They can be grown indoors or outdoors.
- Their harvest period is short and fast.
- Easy to grow.
- More crops throughout the year.
- Small variety that won't grow past 100 cm of height.
- Great resistance against plagues, fungi and weather harshness.
Their adaptation to cold climates is greater than the one offered by feminized seeds. Thanks to the latest developments and research, these strains compete with their feminized counterparts in aroma, flavor and yield. Recreational consumers interested in high THC levels as well as those seeking high CBD percentages can find a great solution within autoflowering strains.

How to Grow Autoflowering Marijuana Strains
Autoflowering cultivars have become the most effective solution for cannabis growers. For best results, the soil has to be light and properly drained and the temperature should be kept at 21° C within the grow area, as drastic climate changes could damage the plants. High humidity levels during the first growth weeks is also very important, but once plants flower, humidity ranges should be lowered in order to avoid mold.
When applying fertilizers, take into account that these plants are smaller and therefore, require smaller doses. The same goes for water, they shouldn’t be excessively watered and soil should be allowed to dry in between. Ph levels should range between 6 and 7.
Autoflowering strains aren’t suited for apical pruning as it delays their growth. When grown indoors, there is no need to change lighting to a flowering scheme. Outdoors, this cultivar is not season dependent and can offer various grows throughout the year.
Benefits of indoors and outdoors autoflowering seeds
The most obvious indoors advantage is its fast growth and flowering.
- Easy cultivation
- Various crops within the same year
- Great quality buds
- These strains are very resistant thanks to their Ruderalis gene.
- Its discreet size and height keeps prying eyes away.
Tips when Growing Autoflowering Plants
Although growing autoflowering cannabis plants is easier, there are some basic notions that should be taken into consideration. First of all, we recommend growing them when the weather is good and days are longer, basically during the summer.
These plants should be exposed to at least 18 hours of light when grown indoors. Greater light exposition promotes better and faster growth.
Due to their short life stages, it is best not to stress them with transplants or prunes that would pose a recovery period. For this reason, it is best to make sure that all the seeds are growing correctly by closely monitoring them without having to exceed our care.
Last but not least important, high quality substrates should be used to enable better root development. Using nitrogen-rich and phosphorus rich fertilizers or even trichodermas is highly advisable.
