Autoflowering seeds can be both sativa and indica. However, they have been crossed with a type of cannabis called ruderalis. This enables them to flower on their own in as little as 2-4 weeks without exposing them to strict 12 hour light regimes.
Fast Flowering strains are hybrids of these and autoflowering strains. They are genetically coded to produce flowers quickly with little care, but still rely on a change in photoperiod to flower.
Our autoflowering varieties, on the other hand, are the fastest in our archive. Infused with Cannabis ruderalis genetics, these cultivars don’t require external cues to flower. Instead, they surge from seed to harvest in a matter of weeks, making them perfect for stealthy home growers.
This hard-hitting auto offers a hearty THC level of 20%, with a high that sends a wave of relaxation crashing over the body. Her terpene profile adds an extra layer of chill to the experience, along with tastes of succulent watermelon. Expect to harvest up to 500g/m² indoors and 50–90g/plant from outdoor plants.
You’ve never seen flowers like these before. Seriously. Alongside her fruity terpenes and high THC content, Watermelon Automatic boasts stunning shades of deep purple, bright orange, and dark green. You won’t have to wait long to experience their beauty. The strain develops a canopy loaded with flowers only 8–9 weeks after germination.
There are a few indicators that will give you a sense of whether the seed is worth germinating.
Germinating cannabis seeds doesn’t always go as planned. Some seeds will be duds. Others will be slow and take longer to sprout. But some will pop quickly and grow rapidly.
If buying from a reputable breeder or seed bank, growing from seed is the best way to ensure your plants will have solid genetics and start clean, meaning they won’t come with diseases or pests.
Are you ready to grow?
Finding a cannabis seed in your stash is not ideal, but we’ve all been there before. Although much less common than it once was, it still happens. Sometimes you’ll notice one when grinding down some flower, or you’ll see one pop, spark, and crackle from the heat of a lit bowl.
Cannabis is grown from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Seeds carry genetic information from two parent plants and can express many different combinations of traits: some from the mother, some from the father, and some traits from both.
Take four sheets of paper towels and soak them with distilled water. The towels should be soaked but shouldn’t have excess water running off.
You can also minimize headaches and avoid the hassle of seed germination and sexing plants by starting with clones.
