Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds: Where Did They Come From?
Auto flowering cannabis plants were specifically cultivated by cross breeding the subspecies cannabis ruderalis with high-quality Indica and Sativa seed strains. The cannabis ruderalis plant is found in the harsh environments of Russia and Central Asia where shorter growing seasons and colder temperatures dominate the region. These hearty plants learned how to auto flower on their own to push into a flowering state regardless of daylight.
The cannabis ruderalis itself does not contain the THC content of the marijuana plants we are accustomed to, and the original autoflowers hitting the market a couple decades ago left a lot to be desired with potency, aroma and taste. The autoflowers of today however, have come a long way and give growers a great option for guaranteed flower regardless of light with high-quality, tasty buds that deliver on the THC and CBD you have grown to know and love.
The Benefits of Autoflowering Seeds
There are many benefits of growing with autoflowering seeds, which allow growers to produce top shelf buds which are now on par with regular cannabis seeds. The quicker growing cycle from plant to harvest is one benefit, allowing for more cultivation cycles. They also take the guesswork out of adjusting your lighting to take your plants from vegetative to flowering stage. Auto flowers are typically smaller and more compact than regular cannabis plants, making them ideal for indoor hydroponic growing.
Autoflowers: Pros and Cons
With advancements in cultivating autoflowers to produce tasty, potent buds, there are many advantages of using autoflowering seeds. Some of the most obvious pros of growing with autoflowers include:
Faster growth and shorter life cycle
Full harvest in 7 to 10 weeks
Shorter, stealthier plants
No need to adjust lighting
Wide selection of autoflowers now available
Less time for disease, mold or bug infestations to occur
Can harvest quickly before cold weather
When growing autoflowers outdoors, they will start to produce buds regardless of the sunlight hours they receive. When growing indoors, you can rapidly grow strains from start to finish without light deprivation. You can even keep your lights on 18 hours a day instead of reducing to 12 as is required when taking photoperiod plants into a flowering state.
Autoflowering cannabis plants are a great option for beginners as well as experienced growers who want to take advantage of the many benefits. Some cannabis growers, however, may prefer regular cannabis seeds if they are looking for larger plants and maximum yield. Additionally, by not reducing the light exposure, autoflowers can add to the electric bill over plants that require a reduction in lighting. With the quick cycle time and smaller plant profile, you lose some ability to train your plants to make the most of your growing space.
If you are new to growing, giving autoflowering seeds a shot is a great idea as you are guaranteed a flowering stage with a quick life cycle.
