    Autoflower vs photoperiod

    Due to circumstances I am only able to have 2 plants maturing at the same time. I have read and re-read the article on the website (autoflower vs photoperiod) numerous times but I can't seem to come to a decision of which is better.

    Due to my limited number of adults I can have I am trying for as high a level of THC possible and greatest yield.

    It states in the article that auto's tend to be less potent and tend to yield less. I would like to hear from those of you that have grown both types (hopefully the similar strains) as to your opinion. Yield may be a non-factor over time as more harvests may equal greater total yields.

    If it only a question of time/care on the autos you are all a great resource for the care part and I am retired. All I do is watch the health of my plant and bowl lol.

    Any ideas and help would be appreciated.
    It's not how crazy I am, but how much I enjoy it that makes me dangerous.

      Most autos will allow you to get another grow in per year if you're able to grow all year round. Like green said, the world of autos is changing there are some autos advertised with 22% THC and higher with yields 400-600g per m^2 which is pretty good for a grow that only lasts about 10 weeks.

        Some breeders claim their Auto strains are almost equal to their photo version of the same strain.

          I think auto's inherently have CBD in them due to their ruderalis genes. Anyone know for sure?

            I believe ruderalis is similar to hemp. I believe hemp has negligible, if any THC. But I'm wondering if all auto's possess a significant amount of CBD in them inherently. I'm talking at least 1%

            Yes....from my research autos were at one time higher with cbd...now...back and forth with what you want

            I agree with Green75 - it's a way to get high CBD without paying the high prices-

          A breeder just announced a 29.9. 0.1 strain though this is a photo fem you can see the direction plant genetics are heading.

            I dunno how legit this article is but apparently we have some pretty potent weed here. Never heard of THC being so high though..

              I will 2nd that on the Fast Buds even tho I'm only on my 1st grow lol I think a lot of the negative you read on autos is outdated info. Just look at some of the the auto grow pics on GWE. At least you can get like 1 1/2 grows out of autos compared to photoperiod. But photos have their pluses too. I like both.
              Maybe I just got lucky but I have a little bit of everything going on in my grow box and the Fast Buds Girl Scout Cookies Auto is outdoing everything else. To spite my beginner mistakes she 's been absolutely beautiful thru it all. I've even cut numerous fan leaves off of her which you're not supposed to do to an auto, and she comes back thicker and better in a matter of 8 hours! They recommend extra nutes on their website and she loves it. I
              I have going...2 bag seeds, 1 freebie photoperiod fem, and 3 autos of different strains. I've had little issues with each one that has slowed them down a bit but she takes my ignorance in stride and cowgirls up every time.
              Oh yeah, when I went to plant her I dropped the seed and it bounced off the counter and onto the tile then into a crack between the tile and wall! Just when I was starting to think I wouldn't find it I finally did and spent several mins trying to fish it out w'out crushing it. Luckily the tap root had not come thru yet. She was the 1st one to break ground.

                I'm moving to Australia. Make room Oz, I'm a big dude and I eat/smoke a lot... but I think you can make due

                I read this in the comments, "Can i have some to see how strong it really is. Cuz I took 65% THC laced it with some Bruce banner and was like so high i was stuck in my car for 8 hours so I want to be the judge of that".

                Made me lol!

                Look at Mephisto genetics for some absolutely killer autos. They are of legendary status. Sold out today from Black Friday keep an eye out when they reopen. Worth the wait. Also considering full auto but need to weed out the photos. Plus have 4 white widow 2 ak47 2 white queen photo in back.

                  Have they got any strains over 20%THC? Seedsman don't list any.

                I tend to be a bit conservative. I have found in my own limited experience that the GWE website and you folks here are the best. I should have searched for more info but, I can easily get caught in 'analysis paralysis'. On my next buy (from Nirvana, told you I was conservative) I will be buying autos.

                Thank you all.

                  Lets start a GWE bowling league, that would be so much fun! And whoever gets me on their team will get a high handicap every week because I am terrible bowler. I took my team to the league championship 2 years in a row because of that. LOL

                    We have some fem photo White Widow and some Auto White Widow on the way. Maybe I'll suggest to hubby that we do a side by side grow. except give the auto the longer light cycle.
