It has been several years now since auto-flowering varieties stopped being just a fad to become solidly established as a growing modality.With some very good varieties on the market, improving these genetic strains was a logical step to take, as growers are increasingly demanding better results from auto-flowering varieties.
Although one mix that we tried improved both the yield and the flavour, it proved to be unstable. Having discounted that, we created our new second-generation varieties. Although their flowering time is slightly longer (set by the flowering time of the reversed pollen), the results are better, while other characteristics — resistance to light pollution, performance outdoors and resistance to pests and disease — have remained the same or even improved.
Kannabia Seeds has developed its new auto-flowering varieties by crossing feminised pollen from varieties in our catalogue with stem strains obtained from crossing with the rudelaris subspecies. The result: plants with minimal auto-flowering characteristics and flowering times that are set by the pollen of the reversed plants.
Our main goal was to create a variety that would give excellent results outdoors. And our trials have backed this up. The plants are large, with fairly big, compact buds. The rudelaris gene is manifest, and the plants flower and finish over a period when standard plants are just beginning to flower. KANNABIA SEEDS RECOMMENDS OUTDOOR USE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY.
Since some people prefer to do their growing indoors, our trials have shown that these plants develop best if you:
In any case, WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USING OUR AUTO-FLOWERING VARIETIES WITH PHOTOPERIODS OF OVER 16 HOURS, AS THE PLANTS WILL TAKE A LONG TIME TO END THE PROCESS, TENDING TO GROW TO A HUGE SIZE AND RISKING GROWING BEYOND THE GROWER’S CONTROL.
