Autoflowering Seeds For Sale
Feminised autoflowering cannabis seeds are simple to grow because they flower without changing light cycles or removing males. Automatic seeds are ideal for first-time growers and those looking for a low-maintenance growing experience. Sensi Seeds’ sativas, indicas, and hybrids (high THC or high CBD) are ideal for both medicinal and recreational marijuana users.
These strains are ideal for gardeners in colder climates who want to grow on open ground, a balcony, or a window ledge but are limited by short summers.
Advantages of Autoflowering Seeds
When grown outside, automatic seeds can produce two or more crops in a typical summer. ‘Autos’ can mature from seedling to fully mature plant in as little as 10 weeks when grown under lights. Because of their extremely robust northern Eurasian genetic lineage – the Ruderalis – that evolved the ability to flower at will in order to survive, most are also very hardy and resistant to fungal infections, mould, pests, and even frost. Automatic flowering seeds can be grown indoors, outdoors, or in a greenhouse. Furthermore, all seeds in this category are feminised and from a diverse genetic background, providing a variety of flavour, aroma, and effect.
Autoflowering seed strain growth factors
Even with a less intense light source, these seeds can produce reasonable yields in terms of turnover. However, the general rule that the more intense the light, the better the results, applies here as well. It should also be remembered that the final size of the plant determines how much these types will give – a windowsill crop of virtually dwarf cannabis will never produce as much as it would in large pots under high-intensity light. However, the amount of bud obtained from seeds in this section is generally comparable to that obtained from regular or feminised seeds of the same variety.
This is the first group of strains to produce superior bud with elevated cannabinoid levels without the use of intense light for extended periods of time. Whether artificial light or sunlight was used, care and attention were always required in terms of timing the plants’ exposure to it and ensuring that the hours of darkness were truly dark. Even minor light pollution has been shown to confuse their internal ‘clocks’ as to whether they should be vegetating or blooming.
Autoflowering seeds, on the other hand, can complete their life cycle regardless of the length of the days, though at least eighteen hours of light is recommended for the best results. Unlike regular seeds, ‘auto’ seeds produce crops that do not require the standard cycle of 12 hours of light followed by 12 hours of darkness to bloom successfully, whether they are indica, sativa, or hybrid. They appear to be immune to light pollution, tolerating irregular and unpredictable periods of light and darkness. Outdoor gardeners with short summers can cultivate their automatic cannabis seed crop during the warmest weeks, knowing that the majority of these hours will fuel flower production rather than vegetation.
How does cannabis flower automatically?
This necessary trait evolved as a necessity for survival in the harsh, inhospitable regions of central Russia where Cannabis Ruderalis, the original autoflowering strain that bred this almost magical ability, originated. Lacking the longer, warmer summers of the Indian continent or the tropical and equatorial zones where Indica and Sativa evolved, their relatives could not wait for the change in light cycles that signalled the beginning of summer to begin flowering – the weather would become cold enough to kill the plants before pollination and seeding could occur.
