Autoflowering Plants Vs Photoperiod Plants

What Are Photoperiod Weed Plants?

Photoperiod marijuana plants comprise the Weed Seeds cannabis seed collections which have either been unmodified or left in their original form, and it covers those which have been feminized. Photoperiod marijuana strains rely on shifts in light duration and color temperature to let them know when to start the flowering phase. In indoor spaces or controlled environments, this is at the whim of the grower and is only triggered once the grower is satisfied that their plants are ready for the shift. Starting at eighteen to twenty hours of light per day, a photoperiod strain grown indoors will continue its growth cycle, otherwise known as vegging, until the grower switches the lighting systems to a twelve-hour cycle. Once triggered, photoperiod marijuana plants stretch, then start to flower. For unmodified or regular seeds, this is the time when males will reveal themselves and must be removed, unless left for breeding purposes. Females will show calyxes and males put out pollen sacs that resemble little flowers, so telling them apart is easy. Feminized seeds will all become rich with flowers, thus negating the need to sex crops at preflower. Photoperiod strains grow bigger, bolder, is higher in cannabinoid concentrations and they deliver much more than their autoflowering counterparts. Finally, photoperiod strains grow award winning weed when parented appropriately, in the right venue and through right training methodologies, so take your time with them, treat them well, and your efforts will pay off come harvest time.

What Are Autoflower Marijuana Plants?

Autoflower marijuana plants make up the fastest flowering family in cannabis. Born of photoperiod strains and crossed with cannabis ruderalis to become automatic, autoflowering cannabis plants are fast, undemanding and simple for anyone to grow. Ruderalis was discovered flourishing in Eastern Europe’s cooler climes and over time it has developed into a fast and resilient species of cannabis which, due to short, cold seasons, has evolved to flower without environmental triggers. Crossing this little lovely with history’s most famous strains has turned the growing world on its head. Autoflowers provide the space for anyone with a bit of a green thumb to be able to grow weed, regardless of their impairments, lack of experience or time constraints. Because automatic strains are on a timeline rather than their behavior being dictated by the wobble of the earth, it is wise to disrupt them as little as possible. Plant autoflowering seeds directly into soil or rockwool, and as soon as they break the surface, they are already growing strong. Though some more advanced growers have seen success with topping autoflowers, we do not recommend it. Autos need only LST or low-stress training, such as bending and tying, and growers would do well to spread the branches out as much as possible to spark deeper bud sites to life. Finally, inside or out, these plants generally go from start to finish in as little as a couple months, so growers are free to fit a couple runs into a single season.
