I see many people list every minute detail of their grow, and then list autoflower. By that point, you’ve worked more than auto needs. There are situations where autoflower is the answer.
What is autoflower? It’s your fav strain crossed with ruderalis. Ruderalis is the third and extremely low thc species of cannabis, that flowers independent of light input.
Autoflower has a lifespan of 7ish weeks. It switches from vegetation to flower automatically, when the plant recognizes it is sexually mature.
Pros of autoflower; timely and reliably provide medicine and is a great intro to cannabis.
Cons; pruning techniques, training, and problem correction take time and potentially stress your plant. If you stress your plant too much while she’s in flower, she will go hermaphrodite on you.
This picture is my re-veg’d Mystery Meat. I’ve been working on a nitro deficiency for about two weeks. That is roughly half the veg of autoflower. If I were under the gun like that, I’d be tempted to do too much. That’s the death of reefer. Doin too much.
