buy autoflowering cannabis seeds online

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.

Additionally, the smaller size of the plants suits a grower who has limited toom. And they’re easier to look after. An Autoflower cannabis plant hardly grows over four foot tall, which makes the harvesters job of caring, trimming and training an easier task throughout each stage of the grow cycle.

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!

Many (still) inexperienced growers choose to grow autoflower seeds, because of their unique genetics. These have many advantages, such as:

It is possible to grow autoflowering strains indoors as well as outdoors. This choice is completely up to you. You can choose which way suits your personal situation and space the best.

The benefits of autoflowering seeds and plants

Growing autoflowering seeds is perfect for those who live in countries with colder weather and short (and relatively cold) summers. For example, in The Netherlands, Germany, The United Kingdom and Belgium. Autoflowering plants are cold weather-resistant and do not mind growing under artificial light. Compared to autoflowering strains, regular strains will experience stress during the ‘’dark periods’’ of artificial lights.

Autoflower seeds are Indica and Sativa strains that are crossed with Ruderalis. Ruderalis originally grows in areas with extreme weather conditions, such as Russia and Siberia. This makes the strain resistant to pests, cold weather and fungi. Unlike regular cannabis seeds, autoflowering cannabis seeds grow independently of light. This means that the cannabis plant will start to flower automatically after a few weeks. The flowering process will start automatically based on a time cycle, instead of a light cycle.

In case you grow autoflowering strains indoors, the modest size of the plant probably has your interest. Are you an (still) inexperienced grower? Then you are most safe with autoflowering plants that contain a higher level of Indica. These autoflowering strains grow a few shoots (branches), so you do not have to prune much. Autoflower plants that consist of a higher level of Sativa, do grow more shoots. Therefore, you have to prune the plants more often. This might sound easy, but actually it is not. You have to be a more experienced grower for doing this.
