What Are Autoflowering Seeds?
Autoflowering marijuana seeds are seeds that have special qualities. These seeds are automatic, and will grow on their own without the need for special lighting schedules. Compared to regular seeds, autoflowering cannabis seeds won’t need a 12-hour light/12-hour dark schedule to stimulate flowering.
Automatic plants are unique plants as these are smaller than their regular counterparts. Flowering is quick usually at just 7 to 9 weeks, and this gives growers a headstart on cultivating their plants. You can even grow weed twice or thrice a year with autoflower seeds.
Most autoflower seeds are feminized seeds as well. This way, you won’t have to deal with male plants that will only ruin your work. With autoflower weed seeds, you can confidently and productively grow weed at home.
Why Use Autoflowering Marijuana Seeds?
There are many exciting reasons why you should choose autoflower seeds.
- Autoflower cannabis seeds will flower quickly
You won’t have to wait too long because these plants will flower almost immediately after you sow the seeds. Most strains will bloom in just 7 to 9 weeks or even earlier, and this way, you can cultivate weed twice or thrice a year.
- Plants are small enough for stealth growing
No matter what hybrid strain you have, you will grow very small plants. But don’t worry because, with good growing techniques, you can get decent yields. And because of the size, shape, and yield of auto plants, these are good for indoor stealth growing.
- You’ll save time, money and resources
Autoflower seeds will save you a lot of time as you don’t need to wait too long for your plants to flower. You will also save money as the growing and flowering period is cut down by a few weeks. Finally, you don’t need to waste resources growing male plants that you’ll only destroy once flowering time starts.
- Autoflower seeds can fit in a small growing area when they grow
Small plants like autoflower plants can fit in a small growing cabinet or a growing tent. You can grow three, four, or more plants in a small area without anyone suspecting! If you live in an apartment or a small home, you don’t have an excuse not to grow weed anymore. You can confidently cultivate all your favorite strains in automatic form.
- Autoflower cannabis seeds are for first-time growers
Probably the best news for beginner growers! Autoflower seeds were made for novice growers because they are the easiest to grow. Just give your plants good soil, the best nutrition, and lighting, and they will bloom automatically.
How To Grow Automatic Seeds?
As we mentioned before, autoflower seeds are the easiest to grow. These are so easy to cultivate that even first-time growers won’t have any problems. Also, there’s no special strategy to grow autoflowering plants.
Germinate your autoflower cannabis seeds using the technique you want (in soil, in peat pellets, or in moist paper towels). We have a strict germination technique to guarantee the highest viability of our seeds, and we recommend you follow this. Visit our germination guide to correctly sprout your seeds.
After your seeds have sprouted, transplant these in large final growing pots, we recommend fabric pots as these have better drainage and aerating qualities. We also suggest using sandy, loamy soil as this type of soil can absorb and drain water and fertilizer better and can aerate plant roots better as well.
When it comes to the flowering stage, there’s no need to use a 12/12 lighting schedule for your plants. Auto plants will flower according to their maturity. When all the growing and flowering needs of autoflowering plants are met, you can expect good yields at the quickest time.
Are there Special Techniques to Grow Autoflower Seeds?
If you wish to enhance the growth of your automatic plants, these tips can help.
- Use special fertilizer for autoflowering plants
Special fertilizer and supplements are made for autoflower cannabis seeds. We recommend using organic fertilizer products so you can make the most out of your plants’ growth. Take note that fertilizers should be used according to the growth phase of your plants.
- Prune or trim your plants to improve air circulation
Strains that grow small and compact need regular trim and pruning, especially large fan leaves. Removing these will help improve air circulation, which can prevent the growth of molds and pests. Trimming also improves light penetration to reach the small buds located at the bottom and inside the canopy.
- Grow your autoflowering plants indoors
Although autoflowering plants can be cultivated indoors or outdoors, we recommend growing your plants closely indoors. This will allow you to monitor your plants closely and to check and treat for molds and pests closely as well.
- Monitor your plants for pests and molds
Pests like spider mites, grasshoppers, crickets, caterpillars and slugs as well as molds and mildew can ruin your plants overnight. You must always be vigilant no matter what type of cannabis plant you want to grow.
