So any Comments so far?
Ok this is all my own work I borrowed the base material from raz1012 and added a lot more to it this is part 1 as I’m still sorting through all the base information collected from breeders seed banks est.. Figures should be taken with a pinch of salt and is a guide to help people make a better choice off auto flowers even though straight strains are better for most situations but not all. This guide should help noobs to auto flowers not asking questions on auto's all the times to please the anti auto flower clans (which I’m not a part off) also so everyone wins.
Information is not 100% accurate and contains personal reviews
Also crosses that contain ak47 may contain larger pheno type bigger than the average. Also most lr crosses there is tiny micro pheno which yields virtually nothing. Do some research on these because not all auto flowers auto flower if in the description they are 100% auto you should be ok
Also constructive information is well recieved smile.gif
Breeder: (Sweet seeds) Speed devil
Autoflowering and feminized strain.
Our first work with a strain of genetic autoflowering plants, this strain can be grown all year round since the start of its flowering is independent of the season and photoperiod. All the plants start flowering from the fourth pair of true leaves around.
This variety produces plants that are super-fast, ready to be harvested with resinous and fragant buds, ripe and perfectly formed just 60 days after germination of seeds, this group of flowering varieties are the fastest known today.
The height of these plants at the end of flowering is small, no higher than 31,50 inch in height, which makes it very fast and discreet. In addition, these plants, are not afected by normal flowering by light pollution, such as street lights, which inhibit flowering in other cannabis strains.
Indoors, the greatest yield is achieved with a light cycle throughout the life of the plant of 18 hours of light and 6 of dark. Outdoors the best period is from April until October.
Wanted to grow this myself but lucked out on the compo

Breeder: (Joint Doctor) Low ryder 1
Harvest within 60 days from seedling - Staggering Automatic Flowering!
Lowryder is a short small and stubby dwarf cannabis plant. At 60 days a very resinous plant will be ready for harvest! - A very wise investment!
Indoors, Lowryder completely eliminates the need to induce flowering by
reduction of day-light hours; indeed, it eliminates the need for a timer,
period. Yes, it will grow consistently well and finish under 24 hours of
light, from sprouting to harvest, in eight weeks. You can achieve similar
results with 18 or 12 hours of light per day, if you like to give your room
time to cool down.
LowRyder from the joint doctor is a great strain for just about anyone.
i used lowryder outside and pulled 2 and a half crops so far.
but for this grow i put 2 lowryders in a 5 gal bucket and they really took off. lowryder autoflowers all the time it has two or three phenotypes has a mild well balanced stone and gets fairly resonous. it could be more potent but it does a good job as a niche plant.
i would give the bag appeal a 7.5 on a well cured bud of lowryder.
my lowryders were grown in 18 hours of light for 69 days from seeds to bud.
you cant clone lowryder so you must make seeds to carry the strain on ,but you can flower a male in your veg room and store pollen with out pollenating your crop.
addtional notes its been mentioned that LR#1 should not be grown anymore as there far better strains out now and only should be used by serious breeders as it give the trait to more off it off spring.
Breeder: Joint Doctor
Genetics: William’s Wonder / Northern Lights No. 2 / Mexican Ruderalis
Type: Stable Hybrid
Growth andFlowering Period: 8 weeks+
THC Content: 10 - 12%
Yield and Height: 20–35g 12-16 inch
Characteristics: . Smoke is very dankish and earthy
Breeder: (Joint doctor) Lowryder 2
The long-awaited successor to the Joint Doctor’s flagship strain is finally here. Lowryder #2 is the newest product of the breeder’s quest to improve the strength, yield and flavour of his original variety while maintaining the unusual characteristics that made it so popular.
Lowryder #2 has been infused with superior Santa Maria genetics, a variety known for copious resin production, exotic taste and soaring highs, it is an indica / sativa hybrid originally from Brazil. The cross was subsequently selectively inbred for three generations.
The result is an auto-flowering dwarf that yields a wonderfully strong, head-turning smoke with intoxicating taste. The strength and flavor is backed by copious resin production and much-improved yield and stability. Buds are larger, tighter and more aromatic than the original Lowryder.
As with Original Lowryder, no separate room or light cycle is needed to flower Lowryder #2. Outdoors, Lowryder #2 will mature quicker than any non-auto-flowering variety.
This is one of the most beautiful autos I have seen. Resin coated compact buds with a very reasonable yield 14-30g on average. They do have a minor stink factor moreso than masterlow or bluestreak but the buds bag appeal will blow you away.
Breeder: Joint Doctor
Genetics: Santa Maria x Lowryder
Variety: Lowryder 2
Type: f1 Hybrid
Growth andFlowering Period: 9 weeks+
Yield and Height: 28-45g 17-19 inch
Characteristics: . Aroma earthy, mossy tones with the wonderfully spicy sweet aroma of the Brazilian
Breeders: (Mdanzig) Masterlow (lowlife) Automatic Hindu kush
Master Kush x Lowryder. Selective Master Kush Females (Dutch Passion) crossed with 12 inch Lowryder Males (Joint Doctor), resulting offspring were then carefully picked through, crossed again to Lowryder, and inbred repeatedly (Lowryder/Master Kush/Lowryder X Lowryder/Master Kush/Lowryder). This cross is sure to satisfy, as you will notice a strong Kush presence, with the plant 100% auto-flowering. You will also see lots of resin production, as plants will finish with medium height, and yield. This is the staple for some of Mdanzigs best auto-flowering plants.
Review (Mdanzig version)
“Excellent plants to choose for small compact garden grows minimal branching and you can fit a lot in one area stay short on average I havent seen many top 1ft tall(avg 6"-10"). Avg Yield 5-15g per fem(but can be made up for by putting a lot in small area). Smell lemony citrus, a little less potent then the new wave of autoflowers but even still the taste is delicious and it produces a mild buzz.

Breeder (Mdanzig)BlueStreak Aka blue ryder (Lowlife) Auto Ak x BB
Finally! Underground breeder MDanzig’s own compact, 100% autoflowering plant is now ready and available only through High Bred. MDanzig’s aim was to create an autoflowering strain with Blueberry characteristics in appearance and taste. Hats off to a Cannabis pioneer, we think you’ve done it! Life cycle is 8 weeks from seed to bud. Blue Streak is Dj Shorts Original Blueberry Female crossed to Master Low Male, and then resulting females crossed again to Master Low Male.
Everyone wants to grow Blueberry, just the name appeals to your senses. Think of Blueberry and you can almost taste it and smell it. Well I’m happy to tell you that if you grow our Auto Blueberry, your senses will be satisfied! Auto Blueberry is a cross of DJ Shorts Blueberry and the original Lowryder. A lot of growers have found normal Blueberry to be sensitive to over feeding and to not actually smell too fruity. We couldn’t fix both issues but I think we reached a good half way. Auto Blueberry is, unfortunately, still quite nutrient sensitive and as such, should be fed more lightly than other strains but on the plus side, we’ve managed to get her consistently smelling (and tasting) fruity. The difficulty rating of 6/10 is a reflection of her nutrient sensitivity and intolerance to root restriction, the growing medium should also never be allowed to get too dry or she will punish you with a severe lack of performance. If you start seeds in 5litre pots, feed lightly and never allow the medium to dry out, she will reward you with an extremely resinous and bulky main cola, medium branching with plenty of smaller, frosty nuggets and a truly delicious strong and fruity, berry-like aroma. An excellent hash making strain, her potency is amongst the best we have to offer.
(Mdanzig) while being his own harsh critic says this has fallen behind the lastest in the autoflowering world, I disagree. Bluestreak has a wide range of phenotypes. The yield is anywhere from 7g(Masterlow pheno)-35g and the potency is up there with the best tasted in the auto world. Smell varies from light skunky odor to the more masterlow citrus scent.
(lowlife)This has to be one of the most interesting autos I have tried. It has a large amount of diversity in its phenos but you cant go wrong on any of them. yield is anywhere from 14g(blueberry pheno)-40g+(ak pheno). The blueberry pheno smells like straight blueberries its probably the most delicious smelling pheno i have encountered. While the Ak pheno has subtle blueberry tints but the smell is mostly citrus w/ a hint of skunkiness. fantastic bag appeal on all phenos. This cross has definitely boosted the frost factor from the original AK.

Breeder (LowLife) Auto AK ,(Joint Doctor) Easy Ryder, (Grass-o-matic) AK47 x LOWRYDER
The new wave of auto-flowering hybrids is finally here, and leading from the front is the Automatic AK74. This was our first foray into the auto-flowering world and still our favourite. Crossing the very best AK47 we could find with the auto-flowering genes of Lowryder, we have produced a strain that is the perfect blend of the two. Everything that we loved about the AK47 has been left intact from its beautiful aroma and resin encrusted buds through to its unique bud structure and astonishing potency. The cross with Lowryder means that now it can be grown virtually anywhere. Balconies, patios, window boxes, indoors or outdoors, connoisseur grade marijuana is now attainable for every grower. Auto-flowering strains flower in response to age rather than light cycle. Automatic AK74 will grow vegetatively for approximately 14 days then enter into a rapid, almost violent flowering period. For the next 56 days they will branch out profusely, throw out pistils in their thousands, calyxes will swell and a coating of resin glands will make the mature plant glisten as if dusted with fine diamonds. Odour levels are quite high and a large quantity of flowering females can certainly produce quite an aroma. There are 2 distinct variations in aroma, one is somewhat spicy and the other is sweet but both types produce the same effect. Previously, especially in the northern hemisphere, the average grower was limited to the strains one could grow successfully. Now with Automatic AK74 you can grow marijuana that before, many would have no chance of fully ripening under natural outdoor conditions. With a lifespan of a mere 70 days from seed to harvest it is not only possible to get an early harvest of high quality marijuana but multiple harvests per season. Indoors, a perpetual harvest has never been easier to maintain. The increased height compared to earlier auto-flowering strains brings with it increased yield. Indoors under lights is the optimum growing environment for Automatic AK74, coupled with a light regime of 20/4 and adequate root space, yield can easily surpass 40g per plant but even outdoors with no supplemental lighting during summer, 30g per plant is very common. We believe that our Automatic AK47 is the most potent auto-flowering hybrid available as well as the heaviest yielder.
This ones for yield. Auto AK should be a building block for making larger autoflowers with a yield 28g-50g+. The knock on auto ak is thats its resin production isn't the greatest but its potency is still very nice. Definitely produces a nice day buzz.
Currently in most peoples opinion this is the choice for yield, good strength and autoflowering trait

dude ur review rocks. been looking for info on auto flowers for a while because im tryimng to start a small hobby grow. thanks for the effort.
I have not smoked alll these as these were put together from diarys and grow shop info smoke reports est.. currently for yield and ease ak is the way to go but if you like it more fruity dont mind a little less then blues or diesel is an option
seeds for auto. another thing i germinated seeds from a bag i had in paper towl. once i saw a root i put them in soil. I put my plants under light but it turns out it was the wrong kind. i thought the halogen lights would work because they are so bright. my soil was get'n so DRY.then i was on youtube and saw a vid on greenhouse method for seedlings. i am currently doing that but none of them has pop out the dirt. do you think i messed them up? i've been doing alot of reading up and keep get'n diff info. but the halogen light was my idea lol.
Good start. I have sum auto AK goin. I think I just hit the "violent" flowering period because mine are REALLY taking off.
ok where to start my method is wet paper towel soon as they crack put into Seedling/cutting compost (not strong compost) normally come up in 48 hours, Halogen is not the best light. a couple of CF (energy saving light bulbs) or a window sill not in too much direct sunlight normally does the trick. Best breeders probs either joint doctors low life seeds but lots are coming to the market now and i havent seen enough info to comment on them. Soil should never dry out in the seedling stage cannabis normaly slows growth below 10c but you should get ok results as mississippi has better weather than the UK
I got the lowlife white russians and 3 out of the 5 germinated. One is growing insanely quick but the other two dont look like much tiny compared to the one. My opinions were answered this summer. Just get 15pack of unfemenized and do the work myself. For some reason genetics I think that the seeds were unmolested as much to get it right. I know how to pick out males but went the female route this summer. 6 of 10 germinated and everything from greenhouse is insane. Thanks Arjan. grady
"ALWAYS FORWARD, NEVER STRIAGHT"
I had trouble finding Autoflowering in my local headshops here in BC (Canada)
Ended up getting lowryder,lowryder2,and an auto Lemon Skunk from the UK
Cost me $200 bucks ........ OUCH thank god I have enough friends interested in
autofloworing seeds to easy take the loss. Do you know anything about the autofloworing
Lemon Skunk? 2-3 weeks into lowryder looking good. Will let all know on yield.... window sill grow.
