cannabis flower seed

For the typical homegrower, it may be easier to obtain cannabis seeds rather than clones. Growing from seed can produce a stronger plant with more solid genetics.

Cannabis is grown from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Seeds carry genetic information from two parent plants and can express many different combinations of traits: some from the mother, some from the father, and some traits from both.

How weed seeds work

If growing male and female cannabis seeds, they’ll start to show their sex organs, or “pre-flowers,” after 8-10 weeks from germination.

Germination is the process in which a seed sprouts and begins to grow into a new plant. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your weed grow.

Germinating cannabis seeds doesn’t always go as planned. Some seeds will be duds. Others will be slow and take longer to sprout. But some will pop quickly and grow rapidly.

The simple lighting demands of autoflowering strains serve as another advantage. As we mentioned above, they don’t require a change in light schedule to begin flowering. This trait allows growers to be extremely flexible with lighting.

Regardless of the schedule, the lighting demands of autoflower strains are easier to meet than those of their photoperiod counterparts.

SIMPLE LIGHTING DEMANDS

Growers who don’t mind splashing out on expenditures might choose to run their lights for 24 hours. Some cultivators report more explosive vegetative growth and enhanced yields using this method. Others argue that a 24-hour schedule might deprive plants of their natural resting period.

Life Cycle: 8–9 weeks
Flowering Time:
5–6 weeks

Modern cannabis growers are spoiled for choice. There are more strains on the market than ever before, and many growers have taken a liking to the new and improved selection of autoflowers.

Autoflowering strains are the go-to genetics for beginner growers and those looking for a fast return. But they’re not perfect. Find out what makes them great, and where they run into issues.

Auto Kush CBD Fem is a gentle and therapeutic auto flowering strain that provides psychedelic effects, sweet aromas, and moderate yields.

Autoflower Cream

Also knows as “Original Glue”, this powerful hybrid strain is created through crossing the infamous Chem’s Sister x Sour Dubb x Chocolate Diesel strains.

DO – Keep it Simple. Autoflower strains were designed to keep life simple, so don’t go and overcomplicate the process. Sterilized potting medium, moderate nutrients, and adequate light, water, and air circulation. Don’t go crazy on pruning and just let the beautiful sativa or indica auto plant unfold how nature designed it.

Because Cannabis has been around for so many generations, growers eventually got curious about how we could make this domesticated plant serve our needs better. The first autoflowering strains to hit the market were descendants from the Ruderalis stream of the Cannabis plant family. Rather different from Indica cannabis and sativa cannabis plants, the ruderalis genetics behold a very low THC product. The upside of these plants though is that they switch to flowering automatically after a set number of weeks in growth, and NOT determined by the number of light hours provided each day as with standard cannabis seeds.
