In addition, these strains are a great choice for gardeners in less warm climate areas who wish to grow on open ground, or on a balcony or window ledge, but find themselves restricted by short summers.
Autoflowering seeds, on the other hand, are able to complete their life cycle regardless of how long the days are, although at least eighteen hours of light will give the best results. Unlike regular seeds, ‘auto’ seeds grow crops that do not need to undergo the usual cycle of 12 hours of light alternating with 12 hours of darkness in order to bloom successfully, whether they are indica, sativa or hybrid. They seem virtually immune to light pollution, tolerating irregular and unpredictable periods of light and darkness with impunity. Outdoor gardeners with short summers can wait until the warmest weeks to cultivate their automatic cannabis seed crop, safe in the knowledge that most of these hours will fuel the flower production, not the vegetation, period.
Feminized autoflowering cannabis seeds are easy to cultivate: They flower without the need to change light cycles or remove males. Automatic seeds are ideal for new growers, and for those who want a low-maintenance growing experience. Sensi Seeds’ sativas, indicas and hybrids (high THC or high CBD) are ideal for medicinal and recreational cannabis users alike.
Yield factors for autoflowering seed strains
In terms of turnover, these seeds are capable of producing reasonably sized yields even with a less intense light source. However, the general rule that the greater the light intensity, the better the results, holds true here too. It should also be remembered that how much these types will give is governed by the final size of the plant – a windowsill crop of virtually dwarf cannabis is never going to produce as much as it would in large pots under high-intensity light. In general, however, the amount of bud eventually gleaned from seeds in this section is favourably comparable with that of regular or feminized seeds from the same variety.
In recent years, the automatic flowering trait has been transmitted to THC, photoperiod strains through several breeding steps, thus achieving automatic flowering plants with high psychoactivity. At the same time, the yields of the original Ruderalis varieties have been increased notably, since they’re normally very low.
Autoflowering seeds do not depend on photoperiod – which is to say, do not respond to the day / night light cycle – but will start flowering three or four weeks after seed germination.
Characteristics of automatic marijuana seeds
Autoflowering seeds can be grown at any time of the year. However, in order to optimize their performance, we recommend planting them from March to late August. Notice that it can take from 60 to 70 days from seed germination to harvest, so it would be possible to make 3 to 4 crops per year, mainly depending on the latitude and evironmental conditions of our growing spot.
The auto-flowering gene occurs only in Cannabis Ruderalis species. They usually come from Canada and Russia and produce very low levels of THC.
Indoors, we recommend a photoperiod of 20h of light and 4 hours of complete darkness a day for the entire cycle. Since autoflowering seeds can be harvested after 60 or 70 days from germination, a 10L pot is enough for the entire cycle. There’s no need to grow in larger containers since we will get virtually the same harvest, and we should always plant our Auto seeds into the definitive container (they hate transplants).
Flowering Stage – This portion of the autoflowering plant’s life cycle is really where the unique attributes shine. As we have mentioned, the typical cannabis seed of the past has required the grower to ensure a 12h/12h lighting cycle before the plants will know it’s time to flower, whereas the wonderful autoflowering ruderalis genetics ensures that flowering starts exactly when it’s time, regardless of what you do with your lighting. Flowering starts early when there are roughly five to six decent-sized branches. Flowering nutrient mixes will contain higher Potassium and Phosphorus contents as these are needed for healthy cannabis flower development.
Today there are hundreds of autoflowering sativa seeds and autoflowering indica seeds available that have come from crosses with the original Lowryder and other ruderalis strains of marijuana. Some of the best autoflowering seeds for growing indoors or outdoors are available at our online store – such as Auto GG#4, Auto Bruce Banner, and Auto Blueberry. The cost of autoflower seeds has come down considerably in the last decade and i49.net features some of the best prices on auto flowering seeds available on the web.

Autoflowering cannabis is inherently smaller than many photoperiod strains and as a result yields will be limited to how much weight the small plant can support. Auto flowering growers can typically expect anywhere from a half ounce to two ounces of bud per plant. There are also Super Autos that can produce up to four to six ounces per plant, when grown by an experienced cannabis grower. Try some of our top producing auto strains such as Auto Triple XL Fem or Auto Bruce Banner Fem. Having autoflowering seeds feminized creates the perfect opportunity for beginners and you can still achieve a premium crop by following the tried and tested methods approved by 149 seed bank growers.
