Have autoflower strains progressed to the point where they're worth the money?
    #705472 - 01/08/14 11:14 AM (10 years, 1 month ago)

Since Amendment 64 passed here in Colorado It's now legal to grow in an enclosed, locking space. Thankfully I have a greenhouse in my backyard that locks so I'm thinking about popping some plants in this summer to see what happens. I was thinking about running some Autoflower seeds so they'll be flowering in mid-June or July, but last I checked (like 4 years ago) autoflower strains were basically junk. The heat of mid-summer flowering creates fluffy, lame buds with terrible yields. Would I be better off just throwing some real clones out there in June and letting it veg and flower until october?

They aren't junk anymore.  Even Magash is starting to do some breeding with them.  I don't have any recommendations though.

The variations in the breeders claims is so vast I can't decide what to believe. Barney's Farm alone has two different strains, says one will yield 15-20 grams per plant and the other strain says upwards of 200 grams per plant. Seems to me that if both those numbers were actually true then the first strain should be tossed in the dumpster and never spoken of again.

Chat with magash about it.  I wouldn't believe the second claim.  Sounds like a huge load of horse shit.

Well I just grew out some autos. Started 10 reg. seeds,5 were female.

I did nothing to stress them that I know of and three I only got like a 1/4 but
the other 2 were like a 1/4 just on the top spike!


The finished smoke was killer put me to bed!!


:stayfunky:



They were my first autos to grow, Can wait to start some more!!!!!!!!!

They were Mags :thumbup:


I would put reg. clones in the green house they will get way bigger I think.

Ive grown 2 and have another one going right now. All Sagamartha Seeds AK48. Smoke is great, yield was pretty shitty. I wont grow any again unless they're freebies...I like to be able to clone my plants.

The only real benefit that I can see is they finish faster and you can grow them just about anywhere without worrying about light leaks.

I'd say that the 200 gram claims are pretty much false.

My strain (which I'm just getting started on they are still F1s) is in the 1/4 to 1/2 oz per plant area.

This is a small bud from it that was manicured with my fingers so it looks a little rough. Pretty hard to tell the potency from a non-auto strain. In other-words if I didn't tell ya you wouldn't know.



I recommend them for people just starting their gardens. Grow them next to the vegging plants. Just about the time you are ready to flower or to take cuttings or put the cuttings you have just taken into flowering you are harvesting the auto's. This will help to keep you from picking at the non-auto plants as they flower. Don't pretend like we all don't know the pick and nuke routine from back in the day. :crazy2:

Is your greenhouse small enough to throw a tarp over? You could force flower with some photo period plants in the spring time when temps aren't quite as high. Autos would be even better to do since you wouldn't have to fuck with a tarp every day. Why not pull 2 harvests out of that greenhouse and do autos in the spring and photo's in the fall?

I'm putting up a small 10' x 20' greenhouse this spring. If all goes well it'll be filled with magash's maneater :vaped:

That's sort of what I was thinking. I want to get a harvest out of it, but I don't want to wait until september or october for that. Plus my greenhouse is very small so vegging a plant in there all summer is basically just silly, so an auto harvest in like june or july and then some photo plants for the fall is exactly why I was asking! But I suppose I could also grow a photo plant all summer and just LST the ever loving fuck out of it so it's the bushiest, low to the ground fucker of all time.

Alright so after some thought I've decided it might be fun to give some autoflowers a try! Anyone have any recommendations on which strains are the best? Perhaps I should head over to one of the bigger sites and read some reviews...

Ive grown three autos, 2 Sagarmartha AK48's and 1 that I forgot was an auto until just now...Delicious Seeds Northern Light Blue. The AK48 was really good smoke but the yields were very small. The Northern Light Blue was really good smoke too, tasted amazing and smelled like Blueberries. Yield was a lot better, I got close to a zip dry under CFL's for the majority of its life.

A zip from one Northern Light Blue plant. I just weighed and jarred it today actually...26 grams right now. I guess it may lose a little more weight while it cures, but not much. Smells amazing and puts me on my ass. It grew extremely fast too. I don't think I let it go long enough but I need the space. The buds probably could have grown even more.

The AK48 autos only gave me about a quarter-half a piece.

I'm thought to grow some auto's this year... only think I can't figure out is:
I read that auto's don't like root bounding, but I want them to grow a little bit inside till they are big enough for outdoor..:shrug:
maybe put them in a big pot so they have enough room and them put them outside when they are about 15 cm high?!

That's actually a pretty good quantity for an autoflower I would think. What was the total time from seed to harvest? How big did it get, and did you take any pics?

No pics sorry. I can take one of the final harvested product if you want. I let it go for around 65 days (that could be off, I just recently started keeping a good log) from seed in a 3.5 gallon bucket using FFOF and it got around 3 ft tall.  Lots of long branches with lots of buds. It was growing under CFL's until the last two weeks it was under a 400w hps. I really wish I could have let it go longer, most of the pistols had turned but there were still quite a few toward the bottom of the plant that weren't ready.

Yeah it sucks. I didnt even know my NLB was an auto until after I had already cloned it because it was a free gift that wasn't tagged as auto. The clones grew some big colas though.

so the clones will flower at the same time as the mom, no matter what?  kinda wild that the clones can go into flowering that fast.


I can see why seed banks like selling autos.....

Yep mine did. In fact they started flowering 3 days after I clipped them, same exact time as the mom. They still rooted though.

I have a few autos on the way. I ordered some "amphetamine" auto's by cream of the crop seeds, and it came with a free "cash crop" auto by the same breeder, along with a photoperiod "obsession" by world of seeds. the descriptions seem pretty good, so we'll see. I was planning on doing it up with the autos from march-may outdoors so I will have something to smoke while I get some monsters to grow in the swamp until harvest time in november-ish. I plan on doing a grow log, so watch for me!  :happyweed:

Its great. So far my favorite strain out of the four Ive grown. My critical kush is more potent but this stuff tastes amazing and the high is very narcotic. I should have let it go another week or two but I needed the space.

About 2 weeks ago


This is about when the pistils started growing outwards and right before the growth spurt, still no bud formation yet, but I'd imagine it should be coming in the next week or two.
Also for a bit more insight: I did not feed her anything for the first 4 weeks, just plain PHd water. I fed her a dose of Grow big right before this picture so this is pretty much all genetic strength. Also in FoxFarm Ocean Forest.

Hope it helps Harry! My wife has 00Seeds Bubble Gum Auto going right now, bout a week and a half old and it has four leaf sets already. Definitely grown faster than Anubis did in the beginning but I am a n00b at growing so factor in the human error.lol.

Peace N Love Brother!

i would recommend doing autos, if your looking for quick bud with good yield. my first grow ever, i badly burned with heat, light, and nutes. and still got 4 ozs

here is the release of a dutch passion strain think different in 2012 i beleive, seymour grew this, and his final weigh in was around 350 grams i beleive, with led lighting only.
now this is not the norm, seymour is experienced and chose the best of 3 but if he can get over 12 ozs on an auto, im sure you could make 8 pretty regularly.

if you want to see for yourself https://www.autoflower.net/forums/f52/autoflowering-think-different-dwc-under-l-e-d-4467.html

thats the link to his grow on autoflower forums. also his auto mazar was really high yielding.

i would recommend any of dutch passions autoflower strains, i currently only grow autos and the quickness that they grow is really fun to watch.

also i only grow in dwc, so soil could be a different story. im hydro only.

thanks.

This is about when the pistils started growing outwards and right before the growth spurt, still no bud formation yet, but I'd imagine it should be coming in the next week or two.
Also for a bit more insight: I did not feed her anything for the first 4 weeks, just plain PHd water. I fed her a dose of Grow big right before this picture so this is pretty much all genetic strength. Also in FoxFarm Ocean Forest.

Hope it helps Harry! My wife has 00Seeds Bubble Gum Auto going right now, bout a week and a half old and it has four leaf sets already. Definitely grown faster than Anubis did in the beginning but I am a n00b at growing so factor in the human error.lol.

Peace N Love Brother!




Dude looks great! I was just reading the description of the AutoAnubis and it sounds incredible, how'd the rest of the flowering run go?

Sorry I have been absent Harry. Didn't see your question until just now. I stunted her about a week with nute burn but it was a graceful recover. Anubis is definitely some good bud. Looks awesome when done. It took about 3 weeks past the given 60 days finish time.
The bad of it.....My yield was about 3/4 of an oz. good bud but not a lot compared to a photoperiod girl.
I think it was awesome for learning experience and it definitely provided some really good personal, but the supplies, nutes, and space that was used up didn't really add up. Kinda made me swear off autos, but my wifes bubble gum auto from 00 seeds is doing really well. They get pretty tall, but look amazing. I have auto ak49 from vision seeds and I may give one of them a go later, but right now I am going to hone in my skills with the photoperiods.

If you already have plenty of buds saved up for yourself then its definitely worth trying out, but for yield, eh...
If I didn't have 5 other strains and like 20 clones to tend to as well I probably could have focused on her more.

Give it a shot Harry!
Sent ya a pm!

I got 5 of those germinating right now

also 1 auto critical(feminized seeds) and 1 auto purple (pyramid seeds)

the purple isn't potent but damn it looked purty

Man keep me updated on that, I have found with the two autos I have grown so far that they seem to always take way longer than what the seedbanks say. Maybe its me and the conditions in which they are growing that makes them takes so long, idk.

I really wanna grow out an ak49 because I have never smoked ak before, but right now in my opinion its not really worth wasting the space on it when I have other strains I want to grow out and work with.

Let me know how she treats ya man!

Same for you brother. I'd love to see how those things are doing. DO they have decent branching? The bubble gum I have finishing up was a great seedling and then about 2 weeks after germin' she shot up about 2 feet and then started flowering. Tho there is a lot of sativa in her. She is currently at about 4 to 4 1/2 ft tall.

Will do. Ive grown a few AK48's, didnt get shit off them but what I did get was great smoke. Grew a Northern Light Blue that tasted amazing and had a very good yield as well. Im expecting this AK49 to turn out similar to the 48's...dont know why, probably just because of the name.

wait what's special about a full moon when it comes to plants?

As for autoflower strains. There sure are a ton of them out there, and more coming out every month, but I don't know what kind of options there are for the ruderalis part of the genetics. All the seed companies ever list for part that makes it autoflower is "Ruderalis" or "lowryder".

I'd expect low profile plants with potential good THC maybe 14-20%(20 might be pushing it) or less.

Personally I think of autoflower plants as the option for people in constantly cloudy areas or with ultra short to no growing season. Not sure why someone would pick autoflower if they didn't HAVE to.

Because from germ to harvest is usually significantly faster.

I disagree! Maybe in great conditions, but with the two I have grown its taken around 2 to 3 weeks longer to finish up flowering. I prefer photoperiods, but if I had a lot of room or had the ability to do outdoor grows I would go with autos hands down. Low profile. earlier harvest. Especially great for guerilla guys. But for an indoor tent grom room setup. I wouldn't do it again for my situation, unless I was just curious or wanted to try the strain.

It helps you learn about nutes though. You really learn how strong or weak your nutes are when you are trying to figure out the right amount to feed the ladies. They are beautiful plants though.

2-3 weeks longer than popping a seed, vegging it out, and then flowering? Or 2-3 weeks longer than JUST the flowering period for a photo?

Regardless, autos make the most sense outside so you can harvest in June or July, for sure.

Shit sorry man, I was high and I guess that didn't make sense.lol.

Basically I veg my photos from anywhere to a month to 3 months. Mostly just because I want to make them how I want them before they go into flower, so I don't really judge on veg time, just flower.

With the bubble gum, it was in vegetative state for about a month, add a week and a half for seedling stage. So the bubblegum flowered in my first veg tent for about 3 weeks after the initial month+, then I moved it to my other tent and it has been flowering ever since. Damn thing is still flowering. I think day one was around feb 1st. I got it wrote down for sure in my little book.

I believe it will finish with the rest of my ladies around the first or 2nd week in May.
