Grow tips:

  • She loves frequent watering and can take a heavy nutrient solution with no issues at all.
  • We recommend LST in the first 4 weeks and pruning the lower parts of the plant before blooming begins, this will increase the amount of energy the plants used on its top buds, and ensure that there will be no unwanted popcorn buds forming.

11. In Conclusion

No matter where you live, if you’re looking to start your next grow cycle with the right foot, autoflowers are the right way to go. As you may know, autoflowers are bred from the Ruderalis subspecies of cannabis which originates from very harsh climates so they inherit certain characteristics such as the autoflowering trait but also a higher resiliency to less-than-ideal conditions.

Because of this, most autoflowering strains are an excellent option for outdoor growers dealing with both hotter and colder climates but there are certain autoflowering genetics that will thrive in hotter climates due to their inheritance. In cases like this, Sativa-dominant hybrid autoflowers are the way to go as they originate from places with tropical climates such as Jamaica, Mexico, and Brazil so they can withstand higher temperatures and humidities with ease.


These strains will perform extremely well in hot climates, you can’t go wrong with any of them indoors or outdoors!
