Fast flowering cannabis plants thrive in almost any climate
Although autoflowering cannabis strains prefer a high temperature, fast flowering strains are not as demanding. The main difference between autoflowering and fast flowering cannabis is the time it takes to reach flowering. Autoflowering plants take longer to reach this stage of their development, while fast flowering ones will mature within a week or two. This means they’ll be ready for harvest several weeks earlier than their autoflowering counterparts.
Choosing the right fast flowering strains is essential for a successful outdoor growing experience. Fast flowering cannabis plants are clonable because of their photoperiod attribute. Then, if you’d like to grow your own marijuana, you can simply clip off a branch and start a new mother plant. In general, “fast-growing” cannabis seed packages have strong photoperiod genetics. This makes them great mother plants.
They produce smaller harvests
While autoflowering cannabis plants are ideal for indoor or greenhouse cultivation, the F1 Fast Version strains are better for outdoor use. Fast version cannabis plants finish a shorter flowering period than their photoperiod parents but retain their genetics. They’re also more cost-efficient than autoflowering cannabis plants, which require long-lasting lighting. The advantages of F1 Fast flowering plants include smaller harvests and improved plant health.
Autoflowering cannabis plants are the quickest-growing strains of marijuana, as they start flowering within three to 30 days of seed planting. The autoflowers are often smaller than their photoperiod cousins, which take months to reach the flowering stage. Autoflowering plants produce smaller harvests, but they can still produce a moderate amount of cannabis. In some climates, fast version cannabis can be grown with greater success.
They retain their genetics well
Fast strains, also known as Early Version or Quick Strains, are non-autoflowering but carry the autoflowering gene. The fast-growing cannabis plants change from vegetative to flowering phase in record time. These plants will grow nonstop until the photoperiod is changed, then flower for eight weeks. In addition, they are great for northern regions, where they can be harvested before the weather turns cold.
They are cheaper to grow
The benefits of fast version cannabis plants are numerous. These strains have been bred to flower quickly, which means that they are cheaper to grow and harvest. The rapid flowering phase occurs right away, making them resistant to pests and fungi. In addition, they have lower water and pesticide requirements. In addition, they can be harvested much sooner than the regular variety. This is great for cannabis enthusiasts and recreational users.
Growing a fast version cannabis plant is much cheaper than cultivating a traditional strain indoors. Moreover, fast versions retain their genetics and make excellent parent strains. Cannabis cultivation can be costly, but indoor cultivation allows you to keep it under wraps. Growing indoors also enables you to monitor the plants, adjust their conditions and make notes on the best practices. You can also avoid pests like spider mites and black flies.
They can be cloned
Cloning marijuana is not impossible, and fast versions are not even that much smaller than their mother plants. However, this method can produce very large, healthy buds, and you’ll be able to enjoy their unique aroma as well. Here are some tips to help you clone marijuana plants. First, determine which type of cloning technique will work best for your particular cannabis strain. Next, you’ll need to select the correct cut.
When cloning marijuana plants, choose the lower branches. Lower branches are generally more mature and healthy than their higher counterparts. Clones created from these branches are likely to survive better. Avoid branches with suspicious features. Always examine branches carefully before cutting them to make sure they are healthy. You don’t want to risk the growth of your new cannabis plants. It’s better to have a few healthy, cloned plants than nothing at all.
