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.
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.
Grown outside, automatic seeds can produce two or more crops in the course of a normal summer. Under lights, ‘autos’ can go from seedling to fully mature plant in as little as 10 weeks. As an added bonus, most are also very hardy and resistant to fungal infections, mould, pests and even frost, due to their extremely robust, northern Eurasian genetic lineage – the Ruderalis – that evolved the ability to flower at will in order to survive. Seeds that automatically flower can be grown indoors, out of doors or in a greenhouse. In addition, all seeds in this category are feminized and from a wide range of genetics, offering different kinds of flavour, aroma and effect.
Yield factors for autoflowering seed strains
How is cannabis able to flower automatically?
Autoflowering cannabis seeds are seeds that automatically shift from vegetative growth to flowering stages with age rather than the systematic ratio of light exposure. Most ‘autos’ will be ready to harvest in less than 10 weeks from seed.
An Autoflower does not rely on the same amount of light to reach flowering. This means that you can stagger your outdoor grows to harvest multiple times a year.
Autoflower cannabis seeds are a Seedsman speciality. In fact, we were the first seed bank in the world to sell Autoflower cannabis seeds.
Due to their genetic composition, Autoflowering plants are usually smaller than other regular seed cannabis plants. When you compare an Autoflower grow to photoperiod feminised cannabis plants, they’re better at surviving pests and mould.
Autoflowers are also perfect for beginner growers due to their less demanding harvest cycle. Regular strains need constant monitoring and adjusting of the lighting to ensure the plants get their full 12 hours. If you get this wrong, it can lead a plant going back to a vegetative phase which means a ruined plant. Autoflowers mean no worrying about constant lighting. Plus, they grow faster, for those of us who are impatient!
Ideal for novice growers or those looking to get into cultivation, auto-flowering marijuana seeds allow you to create a high-quality yield without worrying too much about the complicated bits, such as light cycles.
