marijuana seeds feminized autoflowering

In addition, these strains are a great choice for gardeners in less warm climate areas who wish to grow on open ground, or on a balcony or window ledge, but find themselves restricted by short summers.

How is cannabis able to flower automatically?

Ideal for beginners

This essential characteristic evolved as a necessity for survival in the harsh, inhospitable areas of central Russia where Cannabis Ruderalis, the original autoflowering strain that bred this almost magical ability, originated. Lacking the longer, warmer summers of the Indian continent or the tropical and equatorial zones where (respectively) Indica and Sativa evolved, their relative did not have the luxury of being able to wait for the change in light cycles that signal the beginning of summer to start flowering – the weather would become cold enough to kill the plants before pollination and seeding could take place. Instead, it had to begin flowering as soon as it was old enough in order to have enough time to complete the reproductive cycle and make new seeds. Breeders immediately saw the advantage of this for other strains, and began breeding seeds with this ability to ‘auto flower’.

Feminized autoflowering cannabis seeds are easy to cultivate: They flower without the need to change light cycles or remove males. Automatic seeds are ideal for new growers, and for those who want a low-maintenance growing experience. Sensi Seeds’ sativas, indicas and hybrids (high THC or high CBD) are ideal for medicinal and recreational cannabis users alike.

Ruderalis doesn’t have time to mess around. These plants need to reproduce before the short summer comes to an end and the freezing temperatures of autumn grip the landscape.

CBD strains offer a wide range of benefits and provide a clear-headed effect without a high.

If you want nothing but resinous flowers from your grow, then feminized seeds are for you.

Fruit Spirit

Breeders have also created regular hybrids by combining the genetics of two different subspecies. This results in a progeny that expresses the traits of both parent strains.

Breeders collect this “female pollen” and use it to fertilise female flowers to produce feminized seeds.

Autoflowering strains get their name from their ability to flower without a change in the light cycle. They are easy to grow, fast to flower, and maintain stealthy sizes.

They developed the ability to flower based on time and age, instead of a change in light exposure.

It’s worth highlighting the pro that autoflowering seeds take away the stress of monitoring your plant’s light cycle every day. You could literally give this plant about 16 hours of light every day, and it will reach maturity with no issues.

Since these plants flower quickly regardless of light schedules, they also tend to be more forgiving than traditional sativa and indica strains. This makes autoflowering seeds ideal for new home growers who don’t know the intricacies of the cannabis plant’s light cycles.

Power Plant Autoflowering

The main draw for autoflowering seeds is their rapid growth cycle. Once these seeds get going, they move from the vegetative to the flowering phases in a matter of weeks. If you get a high-quality autoflowering strain, then you might be able to harvest your plant within about nine weeks after planting your seeds.

While nutrients are essential for healthy growth, please don’t go overboard. It’s far easier to oversaturate your autoflowering seeds with nutrients than for them to be nutrient deficient. Only add nutrients at a snail’s pace and ramp up if you see warning signs of nutrient deficiencies like drooping leaves.

Once botanists discovered the ruderalis strain, they immediately began scheming ways to create hybrid weed that would mature quickly and offer a high yield. So, these researchers set out crossbreeding ruderalis plants with the other major cannabis varieties and, voilà, we now have autoflowering seeds.
