What is autoflowering cannabis?
Autoflowring cannabis is the third and smallest specie of the cannabis genus, which includes cannabis Sativa and cannabis Indica, this third specie is also called cannabis ruderalis / autoflower / auto cannabis / automatic cannabis.
So what is autoflowering cannabis? It means that this variety of cannabis will automatically flower under almost any light, that means that autoflowering cannabis plants don’t need the 12/12 light cycle to start producing flowers and they can grow under 24 hours of light from seed to harvest.
The Ruderalis plant is a wild variety of the cannabis Sativa and it is small bushy plant that has adapted to automatically flower and reach full maturity anywhere from 8 to 11 weeks in harsh climates and conditions. The first autoflowering cannabis plants were found in the former Soviet Union and they were some left over hemp plants that had adapted to the harsh region. Now we can see ruderalis plants all over the world and these strong plants are well adapted to the diseases and insects that surround them and they do everything to flower as soon as possible and produce flowers and seeds faster than any Sativa or Indica plant can.
Although the wild ruderalis cannabis plants contains little or non THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) breeders from all over the world have produced some amazing autoflower strains by crossbreeding these wild ruderalis strains with some of the best commercial cannabis strains and now the market is flooded with new and exciting autoflowering seeds that start the life on autoflower plants that can be ready to harvest in 60 days from seed, stays between 50 and 100 cm and contain 20 to 30 % THC.
Automatic cannabis is becoming the next big thing in the grower’s community because it can be grown very fast and it doesn’t need the light cycle change and that eliminates the need for different growing rooms for plants that are flowering and those that are in the vegetative stage. Autoflowering cannabis seeds are perfect for beginner growers because the plant stays small and can be grown in small growing places and it is also a very strong plant, so beginner mistakes won’t damage it and it will most likely recover from thing like Over or Underwatering , potbound roots , Temperature fluctiations , transplanting and Nutrient burns
Why autoflowering seeds?
The question “Why choose autoflowering seeds?” is discussed more and more and now we can find almost every commercial success strain crossbred to produce autoflowering seeds to have the small ruderalis and regular plant traits in them.
So why so many people nowadays choose autoflowering cannabis seeds over the regular ones?
There is not one correct answer to this question but there are many advantages to autoflower plants that have traits that regular cannabis plants just doesn’t have.
Fast growth and short life cycle
The first thing why people choose auto seeds over the regular ones is their short life cycle. Fastest autoflower plants can grow from seed to full maturity in under 60 days and that gives limitless possibilities to indoor and outdoor growers.
For example – if someone plants a regular seeds and some autoflowering seeds , then he can see that these small bushy plants are ready to harvest long before the regular strains start to produce flowers and that makes autoflowers less likely to be damaged by critters, bugs, diseases and even inexperienced growers.
Indoors the short turnaround of autoflowering cannabis plants can be properly exploited to have some continuous harvest setups or even “Sea of Green”.
Outdoors these dwarf plants are harder to see because of their small size and that makes them more stealth and less likely to be found by other growers, law officials, tourists or ripper gangs so they are perfect plants for stealth guerrilla grows.
Indoors small plants can have a big advantage to growers who have limited space for growing or growers who want to produce their bud stealthy. These short autoflowering seeds will produce plants can be grown almost in any space and an empty closet or refrigerator will do just fine. But small plant doesn’t stop there and some growers are even growing these cannabis plants in their PC-cases and ice-boxes and this is called micro grow. Even if these cannabis micro growers don’t get much yield they are still growing cannabis and without autoflower seeds this would not be possible.
Advantages of autoflower plants
The advantage that characterizes all ruderalis plants is that they can automatically flower under almost any light cycle. This privilege means that indoor growers don’t need separate grow-rooms for plants that are in vegetative stage and those who are flowering. Commercial growers can even put some autoflower plants in their vegging room and get some fine bud before harvesting the regular cannabis plants.
Outdoors autoflowering seeds gives growers multiple harvests every season and it also allows cannabis to be grown in climates where regular strains wouldn’t be able to mature in time.
Autoflower Breeding, seed production
Auto plants are easier to breed and produce seeds because they are small and their life cycle is short.By breeding autoflowers you can get about 250 seeds from a plant that is just 7 inches (17.78 cm) tall and you can get them in under two months.
Breeding autoflowering strains can be done much faster than with regular strains, because where the regular strain takes 5 to 6 months from seed to harvest, at the same time period you can grow two autoflowering cannabis plants from start to finish and therefore make more stable hybrids faster.
