Autoflowering cannabis seeds produce plants that flower on their own after 2–4 weeks of growth. Growers don’t need to worry about switching the light schedule to initiate and maintain the flowering phase, like they would if growing feminized photoperiod cannabis.
In general, autoflowers are smaller than feminized photoperiod cannabis. Smaller plants require less nutrients than large plants.
Non-Photoperiod Strains: What Does It Mean?
If you’re using commercial cannabis nutrients, give only ½ or ¼ of the recommended dose to your autoflowers. When using commercial potting mixes that are pre-fertilised, you will likely not need to feed until your autoflowers start to bloom, at about week 3 or 4.
But autoflowers have come a long way since then. Modern autoflowers rival feminized photoperiod strains (and some even surpass them) in terms of potency, yield, and aroma. Yet, they still provide the same great benefits as mentioned above, along with having a reputation for being particularly stable and sturdy.
Autoflowering strains are created by crossbreeding indica or sativa plants with ruderalis. Ruderalis is a wild subtype of cannabis that grows in regions where the summer is very short but features many hours of daylight (e.g. Northern Europe or Siberia). These plants have evolved to not rely on daylight hours to flower, instead flowering according to age.

Many cultivators either start with or switch to autoflower seeds because of how easy they are to grow. Here are a few reasons growers choose autos above everything else:
Because autos aren’t responsive to light when it comes to flowering, cultivators can choose to keep the lights on for anywhere from 18–24 hours.
Why Choose Autoflowering Seeds?
The content on RoyalQueenSeeds.com is only suitable for adults and is reserved for those of legal age.
If costs don’t concern you, keeping the lights on for 20–24 hours each day throughout the growing cycle could result in larger yields and faster growth.
When selecting a potting soil for your plants, you’ll need to choose a light and airy substrate low in nutrients.
