Autoflowering cannabis is extremely easy to grow, yet difficult to master when it comes to cultivating the plant to your exact specifications. For those who are new to growing hemp, it is an excellent training tool because it requires fewer nutrients and does not need a specific light cycle to thrive. It reaches maturation differently than sativa or indica plants, so there are some things that cultivators need to know before growing it on their own.
First and foremost, you need to do thorough research to determine whether it is even legal for you to grow autoflowering cannabis in the state you reside in. Growing hemp without the appropriate license or permits can open you up to serious legal trouble, so make absolutely sure that you have covered all of your bases prior to planting your first crop. That said, autoflowering plants are wonderful for learning how to grow hemp because they will flower regardless of the amount of light they receive.
How to Care for Autoflowering Plants
There are differing opinions in the community about how much light you need to give an autoflowing cannabis plant. It will do fine if you leave it in light for 24 hours a day, but some people suggest giving it six hours of darkness and 18 hours of light per day. What is great about these plants is that you can experiment with these details and find the balance that produces the best plant for your own needs.
One of the other advantages to autoflowering seeds is that they do not require as much nitrogen or to be fed as often as their indica and sativa counterparts. This makes their cultivation less expensive and time-consuming. You will need to be sure that you keep the plants at the appropriate temperature, as this will have an impact on their maturation. Having a greenhouse is almost essential to making sure that the temperature and humidity needed to grow these plants is kept at appropriate levels.
When fed lightly and trained for two weeks, autoflowering seeds will produce flowers. Make sure to top each plant after it has grown three nodes and allow the bottom flowers to gain density. It is okay to experiment with different types of seeds to find the plant that best suits your taste. Some of the best seeds to try are Blue Dream, Cheese NL, NYC Diesel, Critical Thunder, Early Miss, and Bluetooth. There are many more to choose from, so do some research to find a seed with the traits you seek.
