An autoflowering cannabis strain switches from the vegetative stage to the flowering stage automatically instead of requiring closely timed hours of light and dark. Photoperiod flowering seeds start to bloom after the summer solstice, while autoflowering seeds flower after a specific phase of the development period. In other words, they grow automatically (hence their name, “autoflowering”) when they reach the right size.
One way is to stagger your plants. Start a couple of plants a month or two before the rest. That way, you can harvest some plants while others are nearing maturity, and the harvest cycle continues.
Pros and Cons of Autoflowering Seeds
Whether you are a large-scale commercial grower or a hobbyist, you can benefit from the space economy that autoflowering cannabis varieties provide. Since these plants are small, practically anyone can grow their own cannabis plants.
Choosing an autoflowering seed is just one of many ways to grow weed. In our opinion, there are more pros than cons, so we came up with 10 pros and 5 cons to get you started.
Older strains of cannabis ruderalis had few desirable qualities, such as an ability to grow very fast. This is because it is native to Siberia, where the growing season is shorter and daylight hours are fewer. As a result, ruderalis outside of its original growing zone adapted to maturing quickly and switching to the flowering stage regardless of how many hours of sunlight it is receiving.

2. What is the harvest per hectare?
Scientists still don’t know exactly which gene is responsible for flowering with autoflowering varieties. However, we do know that in this case, flowering is triggered by age rather than changes in light. Most autoflowers will begin to flower between 6 and 8 weeks after planting.
So if growing is illegal there then why do you sell seeds there? You said you cant ship the US for the exact same reason. BTW marijuana is becoming more and more legal across the USA, so when do you plan to start shipping seeds here? I mean, there are a lot of fake companies out there selling your product anyways, and they ship here.
Regarding your first question, I cannot answer that. You must ask God.
That being said, you should not expect more than 2 ounces per plant (regular seeds) under such conditions.
Optimal humidity for your autoflowers depends on your plant’s age. In the first few weeks, they prefer a more humid environment. Reduce relative humidity to 40–50% when your plants start to flower to reduce the risk of mould.
The autoflowers that first appeared on the market in the early 2000s didn’t really impress. They weren’t very potent, their aroma was lacking, and their yields were not great either.
When growing in soil, the optimal pH level of your water/nutrient solution is 6–7. You can adjust your water to the correct pH level using natural pH “up” or “down” products.
Can you grow feminized photoperiod and autoflowering cannabis in the same grow room?
Autoflowering cannabis seeds produce plants that flower on their own after 2–4 weeks of growth. Growers don’t need to worry about switching the light schedule to initiate and maintain the flowering phase, like they would if growing feminized photoperiod cannabis.
You can, but it isn’t optimal. One issue can be the difference in size between the two types. The other is that you’ll need to switch your lights to 12/12 to flower your photoperiod plants, meaning your autos will get less than the recommended 18 or 20 hours, and your yields will be smaller as a result.
Indoors: No need to switch your lights to a flowering schedule like with photoperiod cannabis. You can keep your autoflowers on an 18/6 (18 hours of light, 6 hours of darkness) or 24/0 light schedule from seed to harvest.
Here are some of the most popular autoflowering varieties based on well-known cannabis strain families.
