Regular Autoflowering Cannabis Seeds

Autoflowering seeds produce high-quality cannabis in a short time with no real compromise in recreational or therapeutic strength. Have mature plants in ninety days.


Regular autoflowering seeds are another way of saying that they are not feminized seeds. Regular cannabis seeds have the potluck factor of any seed-grown crop with regard to the percentage of males appearing. Typically cannabis expresses 50-75% males in the aggregate seed count of a particular crop. When you choose to grow regular autoflowering seeds you will need to keep a keen eye out for males.

The autoflowering characteristic remains the same. The plants will flower after a specific time and are not reliant on photoperiod. Autoflowering plants can also tend towards a higher CBD content. The ruderalis heritage common to all autoflowering strains is naturally high in CBD.


The most distinguishing feature is the price. Regular autoflowering seeds are considerably less expensive than feminized seeds. This should suit the novice grower well as it makes mistakes a lot cheaper when you are learning. Breeders and other mad scientists like regular seeds as the males give the opportunity for crossbreeding to create new strains.

Males also give the opportunity to line breed favourite plants ad-infinitum which consolidates characteristics and fortifies pure strains. Not being reliant on photoperiod autoflowering crops can contain plants of many different ages. Removing males and replacing with fresh plants keeps a good turnover with staggered yields.


There is a possibility of male plants in the crop. What is an advantage to some, is a disadvantage to others. If you are not interested in breeding and only want a cupboard full of sinsemilla then you might be disappointed. Males aren't inevitable, but be prepared because early detection can save a whole crop from fan forced pollination.


You can clone autoflowering plants, but it is an exercise in diminishing returns. It is certainly not possible to have an autoflowering mother plant.

A plant from a well-timed clone can grow to be 80% the size of the parent. The plants retain the same biological age as the parent so the clone will have a very brief vegetation period. Autoflowering plants flower in response to hormones rather than photoperiod. Taking a clone from a lower branch the moment a plant expresses sex to guarantee a female clone can increase vegetation time. If you have the space clone all your plants from lower branches as soon as possible and remove males as they are revealed.

Quick cloning is a must and cloning and growing autoflowering cannabis will certainly test all of your growing techniques. Cloned plants can be cloned again, but eventually the hormonal age catches up. A third generation clone will flower in the cloning medium and be nothing but a puffball.
