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.
Autoflower cannabis seeds are a Seedsman speciality. In fact, we were the first seed bank in the world to sell Autoflower cannabis seeds.
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!
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.
Due to their genetic composition, Autoflowering plants are usually smaller than other regular seed cannabis plants. When you compare an Autoflower grow to photoperiod feminised cannabis plants, they’re better at surviving pests and mould.
When you first see the seeds beginning to crack open, the next feature to look for is the autoflower’s tap root emerging. Once this long white root has reached half an inch to one inch in length, you can transplant it to a shallow hole in the growing medium of your choice. This taproot is one of the huge advantages that you get when you grow cannabis from autoflowering seeds rather than simply clone another autoflowering or feminized plant. The taproot establishes a strong connection with the earth, good for physical stability and also excellent water exchange rates. Ideally growers will use tweezers to transplant the seed first into the soil. At this point we enter the autoflowering seedling stage, which doesn’t require constant moisture like we did for the past several days of germination. Once the autoflower plant has developed four to five branches and is around two feet tall, it will start to produce flowers. No need to wait until late summer for the days to shorten. No need to tarp over your greenhouse or set an automatic timer for your indoor LED lights. These babies will just take care of flowering on their own, a skill genetically bred into their overall biology.
Autoflower plants may be ready for harvest anywhere from 10 weeks to 18 weeks after planting.
Germination – So long as the seeds are provided with consistent warmth, dark, and moisture you can expect your i49 seeds to germinate in two to seven days. Watch for the taproot to reach at least a half-inch in length before attempting to transfer to your growing medium. We guarantee that at least 80% of your autoflowering seeds will germinate, so if you have trouble, contact us through the i49.net page as we deal with these issues on a case by case basis.
Auto Critical Purple Fem
The Cannabis Ruderalis that helped to define the modern world of autoflowering seeds was native to some places in the Northern hemisphere such as Siberia and the Indian Himalayas. Autoflowering plants are intrinsically good at surviving in harsh climates because these sturdy plants had to grow, flower, and seed in a very short summer season before the harsh northern winters began.

The growth cycle of the autoflower seed into a full-fledged cannabis plant looks very much the same as any other strain, except the timing may be slightly different. Generally, autoflower seeds spend less time in just the “veg” cycle and more time in “flowering” cycle. To be more accurate, one could even say that the plant continues to display vegetative growth while the flowering stage continues, so these two phases of growth have blurred lines in the world of the autoflowering bud plant. Following is a brief explanation of each growth cycle and an introduction to what involvement is needed by the grower for plants to flourish.
As far as the best lighting schedule for autoflowering plants, growers have a great deal of flexibility to explore and experiment with different options without stressing out the auto flowers plant. Some growers choose to provide 24 hours of continuous light to the auto plants during vegetation phase to maximize growth. The downside of this approach is primarily the cost of lighting, but also that plants (like humans) seem to do better with at least a short period of darkness to rest and repair. Cannabis Plants typically experience healthy growth rates during the nighttime. Therefore consider 20 hours of light followed by 4 hours of darkness to give your plants (and your electric bill) a break. The autos will even flower on 24 hours of light (unlike photoperiod strains which require 12/12), but most autoflower seed cultivators will continue with the 20/4 or 18/6 cycle.

Here are some of our most popular indoor feminized strain seeds:
Our range of feminized auto-flowering marijuana seeds is bred to ensure no male variants enter into the mix. Feminized marijuana seeds produce female cannabis plants which, in turn, produce buds. Consequently, this makes sure that you can get the best results possible time and time again, without compromising on flavour, power, or yield. If you’re new to the art of growing, or just looking to witness the benefits of auto-flowering cannabis seeds, give our selection a try!
