Our autoflowering strains are extremely popular. We offer a huge range of strains and can imagine that it is hard for you to decide which one(s) to choose. To make it easier for you, we made a top 5 of our most popular autoflowering strains:
Growing autoflowering seeds is perfect for those who live in countries with colder weather and short (and relatively cold) summers. For example, in The Netherlands, Germany, The United Kingdom and Belgium. Autoflowering plants are cold weather-resistant and do not mind growing under artificial light. Compared to autoflowering strains, regular strains will experience stress during the ‘’dark periods’’ of artificial lights.

In case you grow autoflowering strains indoors, the modest size of the plant probably has your interest. Are you an (still) inexperienced grower? Then you are most safe with autoflowering plants that contain a higher level of Indica. These autoflowering strains grow a few shoots (branches), so you do not have to prune much. Autoflower plants that consist of a higher level of Sativa, do grow more shoots. Therefore, you have to prune the plants more often. This might sound easy, but actually it is not. You have to be a more experienced grower for doing this.
By growing outdoors, the autoflower seeds will be more exposed to diseases, fungi and pests. Fortunately, the amount of Ruderalis in the plant ensures that they are resistant to this.
Besides growing indoors, it is also possible to grow autoflower seeds outdoors. Because of the high level of Ruderalis, autoflower plants will remain relatively small. This makes them less noticeable between other types of (non-cannabis) plants in your garden.
Autoflower seeds are Indica and Sativa strains that are crossed with Ruderalis. Ruderalis originally grows in areas with extreme weather conditions, such as Russia and Siberia. This makes the strain resistant to pests, cold weather and fungi. Unlike regular cannabis seeds, autoflowering cannabis seeds grow independently of light. This means that the cannabis plant will start to flower automatically after a few weeks. The flowering process will start automatically based on a time cycle, instead of a light cycle.

The Floating Flower Market, or Bloemenmarkt, is in full bloom every day along the Singel canal. The market, held in barges floating along the Singel, is the place to find thousands of seed packets, bulbs, and cut (and dried) flowers for mere euros.
(Please note: US Customs doesn’t want American tourists bringing home just any old bulb or seed, of course. The agency carefully regulates what agricultural items it allows back into the States. When seed shopping, make sure you choose items labeled as “cleared for US Customs.” See comments below for more information.)
