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.

Seed to harvest time vs flowering time for cannabis
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.
