FAQ

GENERAL QUESTIONS

1)  What are autoflowering seeds?

Autoflowering seeds grow to harvest in less than half of the time of traditional "photoperiod" strains. They are especially useful in milder climates, and for growers with limited vertical space indoors. The plants bloom by themselves, without the grower having to worry about controlling the light schedule.  

Be sure to check out our All About Autoflowers series for more info!

GROW QUESTIONS

1)  I am a first-time grower. Is this going to work?

Our seeds are suitable for beginners and pros alike! They require very little maintenance for respectable yields. For best results, experiment carefully with different conditions and techniques.

2)  How do I germinate my seeds?

Check out our Germination Guide.

3)  If I live in a mild climate, will this affect my crops?

Our autoflowers are all capable of maturing within the space of even a short summer of 2-3 months.

4)  Should I grow my plant indoors or outdoors?

All of our strains can be grown either indoors or outdoors, but if you have decent indoor conditions, yield will almost always be superior. The most important factors are lighting and nutrients, both of which are easier to control inside.

5)  How much do autoflowering strains yield?

The bud yield from autoflower plants will vary depending on the specific strain, as well as the grow conditions (soil, light, etc.) and the grower's skill. Our strains can achieve between 400–750 g/m2 of bud indoors, and between 100-350 g/plant outdoors.

 

6)  How can autoflowering yields be improved?

We can't endorse any particular techniques, as every grower's setup and skill-set is different. One of the advantages of autoflower strains is that they require less maintenance, and using advanced methods to improve yields can easily backfire and end up producing less. One thing we do explicitly caution against is transplanting your plant (e.g., moving an indoor plant outside.) Autoflowering strains mature so quickly that they don't have the time to recover from the shock of transplantation before harvest.

7)  Can’t grow all my seeds now, how do I store them?

You should keep seeds refrigerated between 8-12 ºC (45-55 ºF.) Where there is no fridge, keep seeds away from light and humidity, and as close as possible to the temperatures mentioned. Refer to our cannabis seed storage guide for more information.
