    Idiots Guide to Auto Flowering

    Plenty of growers are choosing auto-flowering marijuana seeds for their continuous harvest setups. These fast growing marijuana strains, from seed to bud within two months, are perfect at supplying an enthusiast with weed all the time.
    Unlike traditional continuous harvest setups requiring multiple grow rooms, auto-flowering marijuana seeds can be grown in the same space because the light cycle does not need to be changed. Making auto-flowering marijuana plants perfect for continuous harvesting or people with very small spaces to grow grass in.

    How is this achieved?

    Eighteen hours of light per day is recommended from start to finish. Switching light cycles down to twelve hours will diminish auto-flowering marijuana yields.
    It's important you stagger the planting of your auto-flowering marijuana seeds.
    Plant new seeds immediately when males are removed or marijuana buds are harvested. This ensures your grow room is always full and always producing fresh buds.
    Male marijuana plants will show themselves within 17 - 20 days. About a week earlier than female plants. Remove these male plants and replace with marijuana seeds.
    Auto-flowering marijuana seeds grow very well in soil or soil-less systems. If you are considering growing sea of green you can't grow wrong with auto-flowering marijuana strains.

    For best results plant your auto-flowering marijuana seeds directly into 1-2 gal.pots. Using smaller pots will simply result in smaller yields. Auto-flowering marijuana strains present amazing new possibilities. These marijuana seeds usually grow no taller than 16-20 inches. 12-16 inches is typical. Light intensity, pot size, and marijuana fertilizer all play an important role in determining the size of your marijuana plants at maturity.
    The better the conditions. The bigger the yield.

    How to use marijuana fertilizer on auto-flowering plants?

    After the first two weeks of growth, auto-flowering marijuana seeds should begin a light feeding of a grow type nutrient solution, with micronutrients. When the marijuana plants pass into full flower, they should be started on a bloom regime. About weeks 4 through 6.

    Root stimulator have shown to increase growth dramatically. Remember when using marijuana fertilizers that less is more. And don't forget to flush.

    Given it's quick growth it's important to pay extra attention to marijuana fertilizers. You should consider two weeks of vegetative fertilizer and four weeks of bloom fertiliser.

    Auto-flowering marijuana seeds grow one main cola. Though with plenty of great light they are known to develop some side branching.

    Marijuana buds are compact with excellent bud/leaf ratio. Thick pistils with orange coloration, and medium-sized, individual calyxes. Yield and height are dependent on obvious growth factors. For example, marijuana plants kept in small peat cups on a windowsill may yield as little as 1 g. and grow no taller than 6 inches, with no branching whatsoever; while a plant in a 4-gallon container under high-intensity lighting and good cultivation methods, can turn into a profusely branched, two-foot wide 45-gram bud monster.

    What is the marijuana high like?

    Awesome.

    There are several different kinds of auto-flowering marijuana strains that taste and have an amazing high. The original Lowryder and Lowryder #2 have hints of Northern Lights and Williams Wonder, while Automatic AK47 and Masterlow both live up to their original strain pedigree.

    Auto's perform very well in soil mix (pots or beds) or in soil-less systems, where it can be cultivated from seed to bud in 2 months (18 hours of light per day is recommended all the way through). Switching light cycles down to 12 hours may diminish yields and shorten the already-short life cycle slightly.For best results, place jiffy pellet or plant directly into 1-2 gallon pots. Alternatively, start in 4-inch peat pots, then place rootbound females into 10-20ltr pots after sexing (at approximately 17-20 days). This may result in smaller plants than the first method. Grown under a 12 to 24 hour daylight cycle from start to finish. Recommended is 18 hours per day; this can be decreased to 16 after the first month with no loss of yield.Yield and height are dependent on obvious growth factors. For example, plants kept in small peat cups on a windowsill may yield as little as 1 gram and grow no taller than 6 inches, with no branching whatsoever; while a plant in a 4 gallon container under high intensity lighting and good cultivation methods, can turn into a profusely branched, 2 foot wide 45 gram bud monster.FERTILIZER During the first two weeks of growth, Auto's should have weekly light feedings of a “grow” type nutrient solution with micro-nutrients. When plants pass into full flower, they should be started on a “bloom” regime for weeks 4 through 6. Mycorise-type biological amendments (root stimulator's) seem to increase growth significantly.Use this as a guide myself,I apply this method to almost all auto's i grow,Hope it helps

    Yeah, 20-4 all the way.
    I do use airpots, & if you look at the first posts you can see how I use 2 seperate soils in the same pot to allow me to plant in its final pot.

    Default Idiots Guide to Auto Flowering

    Yeh you should add bloom nutes now as its in flower. Start with a low amount. As for repotting it should be in its final pot from the start really or repotted before flower. What size is it in now?

    Default Idiots Guide to Auto Flowering

    Auto flowers grow and flower over a period of time not the change in hours. They say the best is 20 hours in 4 off. I Spose you could grow it in your window but you would need some decent sunlight for good results.
