What Are Autoflowering Seeds?Autoflower seeds, also known as autoflowering or auto seeds, descend from the Ruderalis subspecies of cannabis. This variety of marijuana is found in the harsh, unforgiving climate of Eastern Europe. Given the short growing season in the region, Ruderalis plants have adapted to flower automatically, regardless of the light cycle. In contrast, most Indica and Sativa strains won’t enter the flowering phase if they receive more than 12 hours of light. These cultivars, known as photoperiod varieties, will continue the vegetative period forever if given 18 to 24 hours of sunlight. Growers cultivating photoperiod strains typically use an 18/6 light and dark schedule during the vegetative period and a 12/12 cycle during flowering. Because autoflower strains flower regardless of the light cycle, growers don’t have to worry about setting up light timers or deciding when to switch to flowering. They can grow their plants on any schedule and achieve excellent results.
Autoflower vs. Photoperiod SeedsIn the past, photoperiod strains were known to be much more potent and high yielding than autoflower varieties. This is because Ruderalis plants are typically very small and produce little to no THC. However, in the past decade, breeders have dramatically improved the quality of autoflowering strains by cross-breeding them with photoperiod cultivars.
Today, most high-quality auto seeds are just as potent and productive as their Indica and Sativa counterparts. Growers no longer have to sacrifice quality and quantity when cultivating these strains.
What Are Feminized Autoflower Seeds?Autoflower seeds come in two varieties: feminized and regular. Regular seeds produce both male and female plants, which can create some challenges in the garden. Feminized seeds, on the other hand, yield all-female plants.
Most growers prefer to cultivate female plants, as only female plants form flowers that are rich in THC and CBD. In contrast, male plants produce pollen sacs that contain very few cannabinoids.
If pollen fertilizes the buds of female plants, they will begin forming seeds. When this happens, the yield, potency, and overall quality of the flowers are drastically reduced. Therefore, most growers try to produce “sinsemilla,” or seed-free buds.
The biggest downside to growing regular seeds is that approximately 50 percent of the plants will be male, and 50 percent will be female. That means you could spend months growing cannabis, only to find that most or all your plants are male. This could be a huge setback for those in states with limited plant counts.
By growing feminized autoflower seeds, you won’t have to worry about separating the male plants from the females, as over 99.9 percent of the plants are female. At Greenpoint Seeds, we produce feminized auto seeds so you can save time and money in the garden.
Why Buy Autoflower Seeds?Autoflowering seeds offer numerous benefits to growers and, as a result, have become widely popular in recent years. When deciding between photoperiod and autoflower seeds, there are several things to consider. How experienced are you at growing? What kind of climate are you growing in? How much space do you have to cultivate marijuana?
Growers who live in cold climates with short growing seasons may benefit from growing autoflower seeds, as these plants tend to be hardier and have a shorter lifecycle than photoperiod plants. Those with limited space also may be better off choosing an auto strain, as the plants tend to be shorter and more compact than Indicas or Sativas. Finally, growers who take a hands-off approach to cultivation or who want to produce a bumper crop should consider buying autoflower seeds. These seeds are hassle-free and can be grown alongside flowering plants or vegetating plants.
