growing autoflowers outdoors in canada

Sunlight means better yields and fatter buds
• You can achieve several harvests in a single growing season
• You can grow them outdoors at any time of year (weather depending)
• They are less susceptible to pests due to faster growth
• They fit in tiny spaces on your balcony, terrace, or garden
• They are ideal for stealthy outdoor grows/guerrilla grows due to their small size

When you’re ready to harvest, swiftly cut the branches with the buds off of your plant, and don’t waste a lot of time drawing unwanted attention. Once you’ve safely brought home your harvest, you can trim the buds further. Alternatively, you can hang the branches with buds still attached for drying.

WHEN TO PLANT YOUR AUTOFLOWERS OUTDOORS

Then again, cannabis, including autoflowers, grows best when it can get at least 10–12 hours of sufficient sunlight. As such, it is still best to plant seeds in spring, sometime from late April to early May in Europe, as the days are already longer, which will benefit your plants’ growth. You can then harvest in late July and start another crop in early August, which will be ready in October. If you happen to live in a warm climate with no frost, you can reap up to four harvests in one single year!

If you are growing your autoflower in a container, make sure that you choose a big-enough pot. Although autoflowers can normally do well with smaller pots compared to some of the larger photoperiod ladies, you still don’t want to restrict their growth. A pot that holds 7–15 litres will do. Again, keep in mind that your chosen pot will also be your final pot.

As autoflowers normally grow to a smaller size, they will not need as much water as a vigorous photoperiod sativa, but you still want to make sure that your outdoor auto has enough to drink. How much and how often you need to water will once again depend on your climate and the needs of your individual plant. Just like with any other type of cannabis grow, you want to avoid overwatering in particular, although underwatering isn’t ideal either.

Does anyone have experience with autos outdoors? Does it make sense to hold off on starting auto seeds til June 1 (or so) and have them finish mid August (75 days)? I figure this allows me to start them late, finish early and have them flowering in pretty strong summer sun.. but I dunno.. Is this what people do?

I’m considering the autos as "extra" plants and a learning experience. Not hoping for much from them butit’ll be nice to start late and harvest early! Is it ok to plant them in the ground or are they really best done in containers? I grow big trees in the ground but thought that the smaller size of autos would be nice to do in containers and be able to move them around but I’ve neve rbeen clear if they do better in containers

Hey everyone. I pulled off a very successful outdoor grow last season and everything went well. The only part I had trouble with and was overwhelmed by was having so many plants coming down all in the same window of time and not having any help to trim. Some finished a bit early and some came down due to damage or slight bud rot but I spent most of a month trimming for hours every couple days after a long day of work and it was too much for me

This year I bought more seeds and decided to try some auto flowers. I have 5 different auto strains and I have no experience with them. I understand that they are "programed" to finish by a set number of days no matter the light cycle. My thought was that I could start them later and finish them earlier than the traditional seeds that I’ll be growing.

I was thinking the same as you this year. I wanted to do about 10 plants but didn’t want to be cutting down 10 plants all within a few weeks. So I did 4 photo periods that should finish in September. And I got some autos that should finish at various times. Hoping to spread the harvest over about 7 or 8 weeks instead of 2-3 weeks.
