Benefits of Auto Flowers
Benefits of Auto Flowers: Auto flowering seeds are a great choice for beginning growers, because they’re very easy to cultivate. But they offer other advantages too, making them attractive for experienced growers as well. Read more of the Autoflower Grow Cycle.
1. Continuous Harvest
Because photoperiod plants depend on light and the changing of the seasons, your harvest options are limited. Usually, you can only harvest two or three times a year at most (except for when you live on the equator). However, with autoflower seeds you have more freedom and more moments to harvest, independent of the seasons.
Your main focus when planting autoflowers outside is temperature. They can generally withstand temperatures between 15 and 35 degrees Centigrade. Plus they’re adequately resistant to temperature changes. That’s why these plants are very suitable for our northern climate.
Furthermore, you don’t have to depend on light. This is a useful characteristic for people who like to cultivate the plants indoors. Usually, growers use a light cycle of 12 hours of light, followed by 12 hours of darkness. If you want multiple harvests, you have to wait until your plants have flowered before you can plant new seeds. That’s because they need a different amount of light than flowering plants. If you have autoflowering seeds, that isn’t necessary. They’re not dependent of light, so you can sow the next batch whenever you want.
2. Small And Compact
These plants don’t grow as big as other weed plants. Usually, they’re quite compact. This makes them attractive for both indoor and outdoor cultivation. Outside, they don’t stand out between the regular plants, because they won’t stick out that much. Having plants that don’t take up so much space can be a real advantage indoors as well. You can just put them in a corner of the room or some other convenient spot.
3. Very Easy
These plants don’t need much to grow. Even for beginners, they’re fairly easy to take care of. When you plant them outside in the soil, they’ll just do their thing. If you plant them inside, you don’t have to change much in the lighting they get. You can have them growing and flowering on a light cycle of 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness.
4. Strong: Highly Resistant Against Disease
These autoflowering seeds were developed for ease of cultivation as well as for resistance to disease. These plants are highly resistant against many common pests, molds and diseases. The usual suspects are a lot less likely to ruin your harvest because of this.
