Amsterdam Seed Supply offers a large range of award-winning ‘Auto-flowering’ cannabis strains. When a marijuana plant is “Auto-flowering”, it will flower automatically when it reaches a given maturity, regardless of photoperiod. Auto-flowering cannabis seeds are in almost all cases crossings (hybrids) between Cannabis ruderalis and Cannabis indica and/or Cannabis sativa, these Ruderalis strains come from the far east, where there are limited light hours that force the plant into flowering as quickly as possible to thrive and reproduce. As said before, they start to flower automatically, this in comparison to the ‘classic’ Cannabis sativa and Cannabis indica which need a reduction of sun hours a day in order to flower.
Autoflowering cannabis seeds are also well suited to be grown outdoors in regions that do not have many hours of sunlight per year. Places like the northern and southern hemispheres are great to grow autoflowering cannabis seeds since the limited amount of light will not affect the growth and flower cycle of the plant, nor will it get stressed into flowering less or interrupting the flower cycle altogether. This means that all our autoflowering cannabis seeds will make for great balcony plants that can be planted in the spring and harvested by the end of the summer.
Choose Amsterdam’s Legendary AutoFlowering Seeds
Autoflowering marijuana seeds with Cannabis Ruderalis heritage simply start to flower when they reach a certain age. These strains originate from Ruderalis genetics that includes strains like “Low Rider” (which you might spot in the genetic make-up of many autoflowering cannabis seeds) combined with the normal Indica and Sativa strains and are native from extreme regions of the world like Siberia. Most autoflowering cannabis seeds start to flower around week 3 and although autoflowering cannabis seeds have already been on the market for a while, in the last few years, the popularity of autoflowering seeds has skyrocketed thanks to the ease of growing them. It is the go-to plant of choice for up and coming growers that are looking to experiment with growing cannabis as a hobby.
It is possible that one of the few downsides to growing Autoflowering seeds is the little yield that they produce, compared to a feminized strain that can have its growth controlled to make it larger, autoflowering cannabis seeds need to be grown as quickly as possible since they will immediately begin to flower and in the worst-case scenario the plant will be so small that it would have only one cola.

Many (still) inexperienced growers choose to grow autoflower seeds, because of their unique genetics. These have many advantages, such as:
In case you grow autoflowering strains indoors, the modest size of the plant probably has your interest. Are you an (still) inexperienced grower? Then you are most safe with autoflowering plants that contain a higher level of Indica. These autoflowering strains grow a few shoots (branches), so you do not have to prune much. Autoflower plants that consist of a higher level of Sativa, do grow more shoots. Therefore, you have to prune the plants more often. This might sound easy, but actually it is not. You have to be a more experienced grower for doing this.
The benefits of autoflowering seeds and plants
Autoflower seeds are Indica and Sativa strains that are crossed with Ruderalis. Ruderalis originally grows in areas with extreme weather conditions, such as Russia and Siberia. This makes the strain resistant to pests, cold weather and fungi. Unlike regular cannabis seeds, autoflowering cannabis seeds grow independently of light. This means that the cannabis plant will start to flower automatically after a few weeks. The flowering process will start automatically based on a time cycle, instead of a light cycle.
Amsterdam Seed Center doesn’t only offer you a wide collection of regular seeds. We also offer you a wide variety of autoflower seeds.
Sativa-rich strains are very interesting for the ScrOG method (Screen-Of-Green method). With this method, the plants are guided along a low stretched grid (made of mesh). Growers use this method to make sure that the beautiful buds will remain at a safe distance of the lamps. In addition, more buds will grow on the plants, which are also larger due to the ScrOG method. As said before, the most important benefit of autoflower cannabis seeds are the fact that they will grow indoors and outdoors as well without regarding to light. This is determined genetically. Autoflower plants will start to grow if they reach a certain age. Generally, this is within 2 till 4 weeks. This is called a ‘’timecycle’’. Although autoflowering strains do not rely on light, more buds will grow if they do get enough light. Most of the time it is possible to harvest the buds already after 10 weeks. Many growers choose to grow autoflowering plants with 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness. They also often choose to grow them with 20 hours of light and 4 hours of darkness. The first option will save you more energy, because less light is needed.
