autoflowering cannabis seeds grow guide

You’ve reached the best part of this autoflower grow guide – the end. Depending on your specific strain, you may be ready for harvest anywhere from 10-12 weeks. You’ll know it’s time when most of the trichomes are whitish, and the pistils are brownish-red.

In week 5, small, ‘hairy’ sacs start to form on the nodes. These will become sticky buds.

You have finally reached the point where your time and energy are about to reap good results. Before you officially get there, you must maintain the perfect conditions, so your plant remains infestation free.

Week 7 – 8: Monitor and prepare

Harvest up to a pound

Potting mix is ideal for autoflowering seeds. Primary ingredients should include decomposed moss and compost.

As the flowering stage proceeds, you’ll want to continue lowering the humidity if you are growing indoors yet keep your plants well-watered. It is very easy to develop mold during the flowering stage, and that can ruin all of your hard work. That’s why you need to pay attention to the amount of water in the air and soil. A watering can helps you keep track of how much you are giving your plants. We include one in our Complete Kits.

Yay, your plant has reached the vegetative stage. That means you should be focusing on creating the best environment. This is when you’d add the reinforcements. Wait, you don’t have that? If you started with the Complete Kit, you would.

Most seeds that you will buy are regular seeds as described above, but here are a couple more types.

One drawback of clones is they need to be taken during the vegetative stage of a plant—flower is too late—so if you have a small setup with only one light, it can be hard to keep clones alive while flowering other plants, because the two need different amounts of light.

How weed seeds work

Autoflowering strains require some preparation, as they will grow quickly and start to flower whether or not you’re ready for them.

Make sure the area the seeds are in is warm, somewhere between 70-85°F.

Cannabis seeds require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. There are many methods to germinate seeds, but for the most common and simplest method, you will need:

Autoflowering strains typically move from seed to harvest in 8–10 weeks. However, some varieties can take up to 12 weeks to fully mature. Strains such as Bubble Kush Automatic and Quick One fall towards the faster end of the spectrum, whereas varieties like Royal Creamatic and Royal Haze Automatic take a few more weeks to ready their buds for harvest.

HOW LONG DO AUTOFLOWERS TAKE FROM SEED TO HARVEST?

As the name suggests, autoflowering strains don’t require a change in the light cycle to enter the flowering stage. Many growers choose to keep their autoflowers on a light schedule of 18 hours on and 6 hours off during the entire growing cycle. Other cultivators choose to keep their lights on around the clock in hopes of maximising photosynthesis and growth rate, however, this can get quite expensive.

8 weeks, with subsequent weekly harvests when growing fast strains.

Because of this unique trait, outdoor growers can achieve multiple harvests during a single growing season. By germinating seeds week after week in early spring, you can theoretically rake in your first harvest after
