Autoflowering Marijuana Seeds
Autoflowering marijuana seeds are marijuana seeds that start to flower once the plant has hit a specific phase of development. In contrast, photoperiod flowering plants only flower under certain light conditions, which means growers must maintain a strict 12/12 light schedule.
As a result, many breeders use autoflowering seeds because they’re easier to grow and ready to harvest in under 10 weeks. Breeders use autoflowering seeds instead of regular seeds in places with low sunlight, such as Northern Europe and Russia during winter.
5 Benefits of Using Autoflowering Marijuana Seeds
They Harvest Faster
If you want fast growth, autoflowering marijuana seeds are terrific options. Some autoflowering cannabis plants can flower in fewer than 30 days after planting the seeds. However, many photoperiod varieties take months to transition into the flowering stage.
There’s No Change to the Light Cycle
Autoflowering seeds switch into a flowering mode because of their genetic programming instead of environmental factors (i.e sunlight hours.) Therefore, you don’t need to change to a 12/12 light cycle to begin the flowering stage; they require far less maintenance.
They’re Small and Compact
Autoflowering seeds are small, and the smaller size makes autoflowering cannabis plants ideal for compact spaces, such as your closet, fridge, or balcony. In addition, the compact size of autoflowering seeds makes them straightforward to look after.
They’re More Resistant
Because autoflowering plants contain ruderalis, they’re resistant and hardy to adverse weather conditions. Ordinary cannabis plants are susceptible to disease and pests, but autoflowering plants stand up to those threats.
Many Autoflowering Plants Contain CBD
Although research into medicinal marijuana is ongoing, the ruderalis genetics in autoflowering seeds makes them high in CBD. So autoflowering seeds are perfect for anyone who wants the medical benefits of cannabis.
