Autoflowering seeds do not need a decrease in available hours of light to trigger them to flower. Instead, they’re genetically programmed to bloom at a specific point in their life cycle even if the lights are on around the clock. This makes it easier for novice growers to reach a quick harvest while they learn, even if they don’t have a fully furnished grow room. More experienced growers can get a lot of value out of autoflowering seeds, too. In grow rooms, they can be sprinkled in with photoperiod plants during the vegetative stage for variety or an early harvest while more traditional plants are just starting to flower. Outside, most will germinate quickly, adapt well to harsh conditions and grow rapidly as soon as they take root. This helps both backyard and guerrilla growers complete multiple runs during a single season if the need arises.
