People called Ruderalis plants weed not without reason.

Autoflower cannabis strains are hybrid blends of Ruderalis, Indica and Sativa. The short lifespan lets Ruderalis give offsprings in the wild during short summers and cold falls of Canada and northern USA.

What Size Pots Do You Need for Autoflowers?

Light Cycle for Autoflowering Plants

THC in Autoflowering Strains

Can Auto Cannabis Seeds Be Feminized?
These days, seeds of auto cannabis not only can be feminized but in fact often are. They are known as “autofem”. Feminized seeds bring forth only female plants, which means more yields, higher levels of THC and CBD, and no efforts wasted on growing male plants.
Training of Autoflowering Marijuana
Training helps your plants to grow faster, moreover, the harvest becomes richer. In the great outdoors, where hemp naturally grows, only the top bud harvests. When training, you make all the cannabis plant bring forth lush buds.
Also, training is good for health, even if we speak about plants. It prevents numerous diseases and makes the plant stronger.
There are two types of training:
LST which means low-stress training. The method requires bending the plans as it grows with a special adhesive tape. Long branches should be tied. Most of the buds will be on the surface producing a healthy Cola.
HST stands for high-stress training. The method is more complex and also harmful for the plant, however, thanks to HST, you can get the biggest yield.
There are three types of HST method:
The first method, Super Cropping is similar to LST. The difference is that you have to bend the branches harder, so they almost break. The benefits are better lighting for all the plant surface. The light increases the harvest.
Topping is pretty simple, however, it is not recommended for total newbies. You just cut away some of the top parts of your plant to stimulate lower buds. When they grow, you will get a large amount of Cola. Unfortunately, topping puts your plant at risk. If the plant is weak or too little, it may become ill or even die.
FEM is the most difficult training. First, you cut off the top of your plant. Then you form the bush by cutting and bending branches. This way you get four off-shooting branches instead of two.
