Autoflowering seeds are a popular alternative to photoperiod seeds - both for outdoor and indoor cannabis cultivation. Not only do they allow for quick and uncomplicated harvests, but they also flower independently of the light cycle, requiring less maintenance and energy costs.
Seeds66 offers a top selection of high-quality autoflowering seeds for indoor cultivation in the best quality, with which first-class yields can be achieved within the shortest time.
What are autoflowering seeds?
Autoflowering cannabis seeds are also called "autoflowerers", "automatic seeds" or "autofem", because they change into the flowering phase by themselves after a genetically determined time - independent of the light cycle. This characteristic is in stark contrast to traditional photoperiod plants, which require a set number of light and dark hours per day to form flowering.
Autoflowering cannabis has a significantly shortened flowering time and often produces high-yielding, strong buds after just a few weeks. The plants have a small, compact size and are particularly resistant to external influences. Due to their characteristics, they are suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation of cannabis - even beginners manage to achieve satisfactory results with Autoflowers on their first grow attempt.
The secret of Autoflowers lies in the special Ruderalis genetics. This comes from Siberia and the surrounding regions, where summers are very short and low temperatures prevail most of the year. Ruderalis cannabis is ideally adapted to these conditions, in that the plants not only grow particularly quickly, but also begin to flower regardless of the incidence of light of the seasons.
The autoflowering varieties are a relatively new development on the market and are already delighting numerous cannabis fans worldwide. Even though autoflowering plants do not produce the same massive yields as photoperiod cannabis plants that thrive in the sun for many months, autoflowers still impress with their high resilience, fast growth and easy cultivation.

However, regular autoflowering seeds are also available in principle. These are especially interesting for experimental growers who want to create new cannabis strains and experiment with different genetics.
Advantages of autoflowering seeds
An autoflowering plant has several advantages in cultivation. Especially for beginners and occasional growers, autoflowering seeds are recommended because they are much easier and faster to grow.
Below we list all the advantages of autoflowering seeds once again:
Resistance: Autoflowering cannabis is particularly robust against external influences such as temperature fluctuations and changes in humidity. But the strains are also resistant to pests, mold and diseases.
Easy to grow: Autoflowering plants are not dependent on a certain number of hours of sunlight and can therefore be grown indoors and outdoors almost all year round without much effort.
Compact: Autoflowering plants usually remain small, compact and bushy. This makes them suitable for growing in small spaces.
Fast cultivation: The short growth phase of the plants makes it possible to harvest yields after only a few weeks.
Good yields: Due to their short flowering period, multiple harvests can be achieved per year, making the strains especially popular with impatient growers.
High quality: In terms of effect as well as taste and aroma, autoflowering strains are in no way inferior to their photoperiod Counterparts.
The darlings of growers
Fast, easy, and robust, autoflower seeds are the favorites of growers of all experience levels for a reason. Especially for beginners and growers who don't want to invest too much time and energy, autoflowers are ideal. The plants are not picky about location, nor do they require a special light cycle or have high demands in terms of the rest of the growing conditions.
Autoflowering seeds are so forgiving of some growing mistakes and still offer high-quality, THC-rich yields that meet the requirements of all growers.
Autoflowering seeds - indoor cultivation
Growing autoflower seeds indoors doesn't require a lot of experience, energy or effort. On the contrary, growing autoflowering seeds indoors is considered the easiest and fastest way to grow cannabis.
Nevertheless, it is advisable to deal with the ideal growing conditions of autoflowering plants before starting to grow cannabis, so that the best possible yields can be achieved. Below, we have summarized the most important tips for cultivating autoflowers so that the cultivation is successful.
Growing autoflowering cannabis - legal regulations
Basically, in Austria, the cultivation of cannabis seeds is legal as long as it does not serve the "purpose of narcotic drug production" (Narcotic Drugs Act § 27). This means: Autoflowering cannabis seeds can be purchased and grown completely legally, but the plants are not allowed to produce flowers.
Exceptions exist for persons with medically-indexed special permits as well as for manufacturers of medical cannabis products.
Choosing the right soil type
Autoflowering cannabis is not particularly picky when it comes to choosing a substrate, nor does it require much space to grow. At best, choose a light, airy substrate that doesn't contain too many nutrients - otherwise there's a risk of oversaturation.
Even flowering cannabis plants love - both indoors and outdoors - a soil enriched with oxygen. Ideal is 70-80% organic soil, which is mixed with coconut fiber or stretched with the help of vermiculite or biochar.
Tip: Seeds should be planted directly into the final growing pot after germination, as Autoflowers have a delicate root system that does not survive repotting well.
Even though autoflowering plants move into the flowering phase regardless of light cycles, they benefit from balanced lighting and plenty of light exposure. This can be kept the same throughout the growing phase - a cycle of 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness is optimal. In our experience, a 20/4 light cycle is also suitable for growing Autoflowers successfully and again improves the yield. Usually the harvest can be done within 10 weeks.
Ideal humidity and temperature for autoflowering plants
Autoflowering cannabis is robust and thrives in a wide variety of climatic locations. Nevertheless, when growing autoflowering cannabis indoors, there are some aspects you can pay attention to in order to maximize yields and grow beautiful, strong buds. For optimal results, it makes sense to...
- Maintain a temperature of around 21 degrees Celsius in the grow room.
- Adjust the humidity to around 50-60% during the growing phase.
- Reduce the humidity to about 40% during the flowering phase.
But don't worry: Autoflowers are so forgiving of some fluctuations in outdoor conditions and - unless exposed to frost for extended periods - will produce satisfactory yields even under fluctuating temperatures. So, should other, more sensitive photoperiod cannabis plants be grown in the same grow room, autoflowering plants will also endure under the appropriately adjusted conditions.
Autoflowers are efficient, compact plants with a comparatively weak root system. Therefore, even unlike photoperiod cannabis plants, they require few nutrients for successful growth. It is therefore recommended to give only half of the indicated dose when adding nutrients.
Tip: For autoflower plants, it is true that too much fertilizer can actually do harm. Therefore, a high-quality soil is usually already sufficient to cover the nutrient requirements during the growth phase.
The type of water
Autoflowering cannabis plants should be watered carefully, as they have a significantly reduced water requirement due to their size and there is always a risk of root rot. In this regard, the watering water should ideally have a pH of 6.5 to 7.
As a rule of thumb, plants should not be watered again until the soil has already dried completely.
