How long do autoflowers take from seed to harvest?

The fastest autoflower strains such as Auto Blueberry can be ready to harvest in as little as 8 weeks after autoflower seed germination. There is simply no faster way to grow cannabis!

Some of the heaviest yielding autoflower strains can take up to 15 weeks from seed to harvest. This shows there are a range of autoflower seed options, some much faster than others. Read on to understand more about autoflower grow cycles.

Autoflower cannabis average time from seed to harvest

The average time it takes for an autoflower seed to grow and reach harvest is around 75 days. This can partly depend on the specific phenotype as well as environmental conditions.

When compared to a typical photo-dependent feminised (or regular) strain this is a huge time saving. With 5-6 weeks of vegetative growth and around 9 weeks of bloom it can take 15 weeks or more for a feminised strain to reach harvest.

That’s almost twice as long as a crop of fast autoflowers. Anyone interested in reading more about the fastest photoperiod and autoflower strains may find the following interesting.

What is the fastest autoflowering cannabis strain?

Auto Blackberry Kush and Auto Blueberry are fast autoflowers

Auto Blueberry is the fastest autoflowering strain in the Dutch Passion collection. The fastest phenotypes can be ready just 8 weeks after seed germination. Auto Blackberry Kush is another very fast auto, which can be ready as little as 9 weeks after seed germination.

What is the slowest autoflowering cannabis strain?

Auto Desfrán can take 12-15 weeks from seed to harvest. The heavy yielding, pure sativa genetics simply cannot be rushed! The ultra-heavy yielding Auto Ultimate can also take 12-15 weeks, as can Auto Glueberry OG.

It pays to research your autoflower seed choice carefully. The beauty of autoflower strains is that they offer the grower a choice of harvest times from fast autos to slower XXL yielding super-autos.

Seed to harvest time vs flowering time for cannabis

Auto Blackberry Kush growth cycle

The seed to harvest time is a guide for growers, showing the likely time it will take to complete a full autoflower grow cycle. Just like feminised cannabis seeds, autoflower seeds will produce a range of phenotypes. Some will be faster than others to reach harvest.

Cool grow room temperatures will slow down the growth and bloom, so ensure your grow room conditions are optimised. Note that outdoors, most auto strains will take an extra few weeks to finish compared to indoors.

Hey @ Marcia 2021-06-16 21:52:06 If you do not have any idea what strain it could be or where it comes from it is really difficult to determine what strain it is. You can look at some traits of the plants and compare this with certain indica's and sativa's to get a clue! Greetings, Jay Dutch Passion

I was gifted one autoseed, but I have no idea of the strain. How do I determine what that is. Nobody seems to know... Can you help? Plant is growing well. it's about 8 weeks old with lots of flower!

Hello @ Susan Moon 2021-05-12 15:21:30 That is quite an impressive height you have reached last year. We would love to see some pictures :) For autoflowers it is important to not train/stress them to much so we advice against pinching the flowers. Additionally, to improve the growth you should germinate the seeds in big pots, you should not start with a small plant pot because this will slow down root growth and will influence your total grow. Greetings, Jay Dutch Passion

My auto flowering CBD plants are only 30 t0 40 cm tall and have started to flower. Last year the same plants where 270 cm tall and very strong, Can you tell me what I can do, ie: do I pinch out the flowers to enable them to grow to full size?
