Autoflowers are becoming increasingly popular, and it is easy to see why. Autoflowering strains often take less than ten weeks from seed to harvest – there is no other way to grow weed faster. Due to the short life cycle, several harvests can be realized even when grown outdoors. The addition of the Ruderalis genes means that autoflowering varieties are more resistant to cold and can therefore be cultivated in northern regions of Europe without any problems. Finally, auto strains are often smaller than traditional cannabis strains, so they are easier to manage and can be nicely camouflaged on the balcony or in the garden. Without further ado, here are five varieties with the best autoflower genetics:

Santa Maria Auto is one of the best-loved autoflowers currently available and is known for its extraordinarily quick time to harvest. In as little as six to seven weeks, you can enjoy the fruits of your Santa Maria crop. Santa Maria Auto genetics are derived from an impressive lineage including Northern Lights, and Santa Maria, as well as a Hawaiian Sativa and an Afghani element.
Santa Maria Auto is a small but mighty plant. Outside, she will develop into a nice manageable height of about a metre. Indoors, she will thrive on an 18:6 light cycle, although you may wish to experiment with 20:4.
The strain doesn’t produce enormous yields, but the quality is outstanding, and the amounts of smooth, dense buds are certainly satisfactory – ranging from 250 to 350 g/m2 when grown indoors. Outside, you can expect to harvest a very pleasing 55 to 75 grams per plant.
Santa Maria Auto is the ideal strain for beginners or those who want a mellow high with a balanced blend of Sativa and Indica effects. The smell is pleasantly floral and very smooth on the throat.

Two massive, coffee shop classics united in one fast autoflower, that is what you get with Northern Light x Big Bud Autoflower. By crossing an automatic Northern Light with Big Bud, the flowering phase has been shortened to nine weeks, bringing the total cycle from seed to harvest to only eleven weeks.
Weedseedsexpress is mainly aiming for the maximum autoflower yield with this crossing, as both Northern Light and Big Bud (Citral x Skunk) are known for their generous yields. But this strategy also gave the cross a slightly more refined taste and a somewhat lower THC content than the Northern Lights alone. An excellent medicinal strain that does not nail patients to their couch, but allows them to make their own medicine. This autoflower is very easy to grow.
Put the seeds immediately after germination in a large pot with an airy medium such as coconut or even better, a hydro system without a medium. They will quickly grow into a large plant, especially for autoflowers, reaching a height of 130 cm, which can yield up to 500 grams per square metre. It also helps to keep the light cycle at 18:6 throughout the grow.
