Growing auto-flowering cannabis seeds does not differ a lot with the regular marijuana strains but they are a few differences that you will need to consider so that you will be able to grow them just fine.
The most important thing to consider about growing auto-flowering cannabis seeds is the fact that it is not dependent on the light cycle used. It flowers automatically as soon as it reaches a certain maturity. That is the reason why a lot of growers like growing this kind of marijuana.
What are the requirements in growing auto-flowering cannabis seeds?
There is not much requirements that you should follow so that you will be able to grow auto-flowering strains successfully. When it comes to hours of light to be used, you don’t need to follow a certain light cycle to use because these strains are not dependent on light. You can just go for 18/6 light cycle.
Soil to be used should be airy. This is what auto-flowering marijuana strains love. They should relatively be low on nutrients but do not go for the standard pot soil. It’s much better to buy your soil from a grow shop. Go for the light mix.
During the first 12-14 days, you don’t need to feed your plant anything but water. After this grow period, you could start feeding them with nutrients. Again, go for the light type. Continue this until the marijuana plants reach flowering.
Flush well and then switch to nutrients which are designed for the flowering period. About a week before harvest, you should stop giving them nutrients.
Do remember not to over feed them with nutrients. Commercial growers may advice very high concentration of nutrients for your cannabis plants. However, we can advice to use less especially for the auto-flowering marijuana strains.
