These strains make for a cannabis gardening journey with significant rewards. Thanks to modern-day cultivation methods, growers have taken much-loved strains and improved their development abilities. Autoflower seeds are especially favored because you enjoy less work, faster-growing, and super generous harvests.
Grow your high-yield seeds with the following tips to achieve the best results.
Before you get started growing, your first step is germination. Our favored technique is the paper towel method.
- Two non-porous paper towels
- Two dinner plates
- Room temperature purified water
- Your high-yield marijuana seeds
Once you've gathered the tools, follow these instructions:
- Wet your paper towels with purified water. Wring out any excess, so they're damp and not soaked.
- Place one towel onto one of the dinner plates and use the tweezers to spread your seeds over the towel.
- Cover the seeds with the other paper towel and gently sprinkle some water over the top. Remember, the environment must never be drenched, only moistened.
- Lift the paper towels from the surface of the plate to ensure there isn't additional water lying beneath.
- Close the seeds inside with the second plate to create a warm, dark environment. Put this setup inside a cupboard or drawer that doesn't receive direct light.
- The germination process takes 24–120 hours to complete. Regularly check your seeds during this time. The towels should never dry out.
- Once your high yield cannabis seeds present their taproots, they're ready to move to your growing medium of choice.
What kind of nutrients do they need?
Cannabis plants thrive on macronutrients like nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), and potassium (K). They also need micro nutes like calcium, iron, copper, and zinc. Marijuana crops need different nutrient feeds at each stage of growth. In their vegetative phase, they need a lot more nitrogen to enhance the development of leaves and stems. During flowering, crops produced from heavy yield seeds need more phosphorus and potassium.
The primary nutes N–P–K ratio is displayed on nutrient packaging as 4:2:3. It indicates how much of each compound is available in the product.
What kind of water is best for high yields?
Distilled water (soft water) is best for your marijuana crops since it's free of salts or heavy metals that usually hinder nutrient absorption. Using purified H2O eliminates the presence of bacteria that causes contamination to the roots. Ensure the water for your crops growing from high yield marijuana seeds is tepid at a temperature of 68℉. The quality of H2O is greatly affected by the pH balance. If it's too acidic or alkaline, it negatively impacts the growth of your crops.
- Acidic water: 0–4.9
- Alkaline water: 7.0–14
- Balanced pH: 5.0–7.0
A couple of words about growing high yield marijuana seeds
Sufficient airflow is vital for crops growing from high yield seeds if you're cultivating indoors. Keep relative humidity regulated at all times. Autoflowers need a milder humid environment during flowering than throughout the seedling and early vegging stages.
Cultivating seeds indoors requires quality lighting, especially if they're regular or feminized photoperiod variants. Although autoflowers don't depend on light exposure to switch to flowering, they still need warmth to grow.
High-intensity lights like metal-halide lamps are ideal if you don't mind spending extra pennies on electricity bills. LED lights are an excellent alternative for milder heat generation and lower costs.
For indoor setups, an 18/6 light provision is beneficial in encouraging robust growth and increased bud production. Mother Nature takes care of the lighting outdoors.
Plant your seeds directly into large pots to encourage healthy root development and growth patterns. To increase results, use 15–20 liter pots.
If you choose to raise your crops produced from high-yield cannabis seeds outdoors, protect them from the elements of nature, including pests.
For your autoflower seeds with high yield production, use a light growing medium. Autos grow fast and vigorously, and airy soil makes it easy for them to develop a healthy root system. The ideal pH for soil-based growing is 6.5.
Add a root stimulant to enhance development further. Ensure you have sufficient support for those heavy budding colas on the crops grown from this type of seeds. Adding side structures like bamboo sticks or trellis netting helps the plants carry heavy loads.
Choose your water carefully. If the H2O is unsafe for human consumption, it's hazardous for your crops. Reverse osmosis water is ideal as it doesn't contain all the impurities usually found in what comes out of a tap.
Crops produced from heavy-yield autoflower seeds don't need as many nutrients as photoperiods. Lightly fertilized soil is sufficient for autos.
Marijuana plants need more nitrogen during vegging to promote growth and more phosphorus and potassium during flowering for bud production.
With high yields come more foliage. Train your crops to encourage lateral growth. Low-stress training (LST) techniques allow you to do this without stressing the plants. Once more bud sites receive additional light, it encourages the development of higher yields.
Sometimes you notice ripened buds at the top of your crops produced from high yield cannabis seeds. Flowers usually mature faster at the top than they do further down on the plants. Harvest the ready ones, and wait another 1–2 weeks before clipping the others.
