These buds will be heavily coated in crystals and offer a mouth-watering diesel and sweet berry taste that comes in hand an uplifting creative high, great for conversing and creative activities (novices may want to watch out!).


“This particular lady took an incredible amount of abuse from someone who was only learning how to grow in DWC... and she really didn't care very much! There were so many times I was going to pitch her - but she kept insisting that I not give up... So that I've gotten ANY harvest out of her has earned her a very special place in my heart. I'm growing another at the moment that is doing MUCH better thanks to what I learned with this one... and I will definitely grow this strain again - I have never seen anything as loaded with trichs as this... she's been unbelievable! Trimming her up, it was easy to "feel" which buds had had the most light - they were rock hard - which tells me I need to do a little more defoliation on Bruce #2 ... I've had great fun growing this strain!”

Grow tips:

  • Make sure you have enough vertical space because this strain grows super tall!
  • Have your trim bin ready because the sugar leaves are extremely frosty.

This strain packs a flavorful punch, sweet hazelnut notes followed by sharp fruity flavors, give it a mouth-watering flavor profile delivering a fully functional Sativa high while completely functional, the perfect strain for daytime and getting stuff done any users claim Pound Cake Auto helps maintain focus and is great for recreational and laborious activities. 


“I have not tried such a positive effect for a long time. at the same time, euphoria, joy, fun, energy and a complete sense of happiness take possession of you. I would compare its effect with the effect of Amnesia Haze. with a ratio of 70% Sativa and 30 Indica. I think it's definitely a good choice for those who like to have fun and be energetic. I think it's a great cure for depression. The effect is instantly felt after the first puffs. I never try to estimate the amount of THC in varieties. but here I’ll take a chance and say that, according to my sensation, it contains 25-30%. the smell and taste are definitely citrus sweet with a hint of hazelnuts.”

 Grow tips:

  • Be sure to give a nice long cure to bring out all the delicious terps.
  • A carbon filter is needed due to her strong smell.
  • She’s a heavy eater, so be ready to feed her frequently and be sure to flush properly to optimize the flavor profile.

A wonderful flower to start the day with, enjoy socially with friends, long walks in nature, sunny days at the beach, and enhance your inner creativity. She is a truly tasty strain that anyone would enjoy, with hints of ripe papaya, sweet cookie dough, and tropical flavors that will keep your taste buds guessing after every puff.


“Papaya Cookies is sooooo strong - yet she is still not a Couch Lock Strain. She got me flying high for hours the first time I tried her and ever since she is the strain I turn to when I need an extra boost in THC. I love the Fruity Terpenes and how rock hard her Nuggets get. On top of that she is incredibly frosty and has an amazing bag appeal…”

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.
  • Remember to provide support for the large buds and prevent them from falling over with the excess weight.

9.  Forbidden Runtz Auto

Our Forbidden Runtz Auto is our take on the two Cali strains, Forbidden Fruit and Runtz. Thanks to her heritage she performs very well in the cold and can achieve outstanding results in hot climates.

It’s a perfect representation of an Indica-dominant hybrid in all aspects, a medium-size strain that will grow between 90-130cm (35-51in) and will grow multiple side branches with short internodal spaces and beautiful buds covered in trichomes. At the flowering stage reeks of a unique combination of fruity, spicy, citrusy, and sweet flavors.

  • Flush for at least 7 days to wash the excess nutrients from the medium and get even better flavors.

10.  Apple Strudel Auto

The Apple Strudel Auto is a modern legend with an insane resin profile, making it one of the most flavorful strains in the last few years. This strain will produce incredible results outdoors and can withstand hot and cold weather with ease.

The effects are uplifting and clear-minded, she will keep all systems going, perfect for smoking when you’re busy, keeping sharp and alert. Her high is not too racy and will transcend into a relaxing state the more you smoke with a spicy, earthy, and sweet flavor, delivering a particular taste that the old-school generation will love.


“Smoke report on these is taste is super smooth with hints of a creaminess. The flowers came out with either shades of purple on them or covered in red, but both density and taste the same. Sticky would be a highly understatement as they are almost sappy. I did find multiple spots where sugers have seeped out the flowers leaving a sap. Over all definitely recommended if your an indica lover it's not to couch lock but enough to know your relaxed. All 3 plants came out to a dry weight of an astonishing 270g or a little over 9 and half ounces. So an average of 3 ounces a plant I'd put it more on the heavy yielding strains. For sure a fun one from sprout to harvest I'd recommend to any level of grower. Happy Growing”

Grow tips:

  • Highly recommended for beginner growers new to autoflowers, this is a sturdy reliable strain that can be left to grow with very little maintenance.
  • She also performs incredibly well when grown in a Sea of Green.

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!
