Unlike photoperiod strains, autoflowering seeds flower without having to change the lighting cycle. The Ruderalis genetics present in the lineage ensures a short period of vegetative growth (3-4 weeks) before the flowering process begins.
They can flower with any amount of light, though should receive 18-24 hours per day in order to maximise production. Most auto seeds are feminised by the breeder, so there is no need to deal with the removal of unwanted males.
Their convenience and overall shorter cycle from seed to harvest makes autos a great choice for both indoor and outdoor environments. This also makes them ideal for beginners.
The quality of autos is better than ever; potency, terpene production and yields are absolutely comparable to other seed types because of continuous efforts by the best breeders in developing these genetics over recent years.
