Transplanting autoflower plants

Date 8th Aug 2011   Comments 5 Comments »

Autoflower cannabis plants have a very short life cycle and they use all their power to develop buds and grow them as fast as possible. Some of these small marijuana plants can be ready to harvest in just 60 days so there is no room for any stress that would stunt them. Basically autoflower plants are best to start in their final pots and not to stress them and slow down their development in any way.

Transplanting autoflowering plants can stress them and stunt their growth by 1 to 7 days and if the plant only lives for 60 days then that means you can cut almost 10 % of its life time by just transplanting it.

Cloning autoflowering cannabis plants

Date 31st Jul 2011   Comments 6 Comments »

The thing about autoflowering plants is that they flower by time and they cannot be fooled to stay in vegetative period by turning the lights on 13 + hours a day.

This means that these ruderalis plants know how old they are and they will start flowering two to tree weeks after sprouting no matter what light cycle they receive.
Because of this autoflowering trait these plants cannot be cloned effectively. For example if you manage to take a clone from this auto-flowering marijuana plant and you manage to plant it , it will flower exactly at the same time as it’s “mother”. This means that you’r newly taken clone will probably start flowering a few days after the cloning and nothing will return that little cutting back to vegetative stage as it is possible with regular short-day cannabis strains.

So as you can see autoflowering plants can be cloned but there is no point of that because you cannot set it back to the vegetative growing period and it will automatically flower and produce a harvest at the same time as the “mother” plant and you will get a one bud plant if you are lucky.

Autoflower plant size

Date 30th Jul 2011   Comments 5 Comments »

The size of  these autoflowering cannabis plants is directly related to the post size, light intensity, spectrum and cycle, fertilizer, growing medium(soil) , training(topping, LST-low stress training, SCROG-screen of green), PH level, watering and other stresses like transplanting, temperature changes, bug problems, diseases and even humidity levels.

The typical auto-flower plant size is from 7 to 20 inches (17cm to 50cm) but it may be smaller if the conditions are harsh or exactly the opposite if they are perfect.

Basically all of these previously mentioned conditions can affect the plant size but some may affect it more than others and there are also those SUPER autoflowers that grow huge so be careful what strain you get!

Here are the most common environmental factors that influence your plants size the most:
