Best yielding Autoflower strain?

    I run some autos. The Nirvana Short Riders always yield about 1 - 1 1/2 oz cured... consistently. I've grown quite a few. Very stable. Afghan Kush Ryder yielded about 2 oz cured. I'm trying some Paki Ryder next.

    You hear all sorts of BS about autos. Ignore it. They are great to grow and yield good solid smoke. Now that it's summer I've got mine outside.

    I just got done growing Kannabia Afrodite Autoflower under 600w hps with miracle grow soil(Yes i know it sucks Im using fox farm now with grow big, tiger bloom and big bloom) Just weight it the other day, weight was 205 grams wet. was about 18 inches tall and grown in a 1 gallon pot. Had an extra pot and seed so I tried it out and stuck it in the corner of my grow tent and still did amazing. Very Very crystallized and smells kinda like peppermint mints. Only autoflower I grew other then Himayalan Blue Diesel which was done under cfls so I won't count that. Hope this helps.

    Pandora from Paradise seeds is by far the best auto I've grown so far. Even better than Easy Ryder. Started off a little stretchy (for an auto) but filled in nicely. I grew it along with AutoMaria II and while the AutoMaria II was garbage, the Pandora really impressed me. Picked one at 10 weeks from seed and the other at 11 weeks. I feel the extra week was worth it, but still a fine plant at 10 weeks.

    Oh BTW I did these outdoors and pulled about an oz dry from each plant.

    yo! I have recently grown 2 pakistan ryders from world of seeds, which are auto flowering. I used a small tent, 160x160x140 which is the smallest u can buy. I grew in canna coco & vermiculite, veged for 3 weeks using a blue 160watt cfl, then i switched to a 250hps. was amzed with the results, i checked the ph every day & also kept the lights on temp 25.28 degrees, ph 5,8-6.2. they finished on week 9. total dried crop was just under 6oz. I was expecting 3 at the most, but ended up getting almost 3oz per plant. I dryed for 1 week & cured in jars for 3 weeks. now i have the most amazing smoke, very devastating. check out the picks

    I've been able to achieve 2-4 oz on Mi5 outdoors in the past, in 5 gallon pots FROM SEED using myco and rhino skin for getting that taproot deep as i can and making a massive rootball, that is the key. Short stuff Auto's are all bushy and yield quality bud, some strains are finicky and can herm but the buds at top quality.

    Why would anyone switch their lighting schedule to 12/12 for an Autoflower??? That's ridiculous. It's an autoflower, hello!? In my experience with several different autoflower strains, a lighting schedule of 20/4 is what autoflower responds best to.

    TsmokeTrain Well-Known Member

    All plants grow best on 20/4, but people are still fighting the whole 18/6 & 24/7 thing.
    I'll be checking these out, thanks guys, gotta get autoflowers for the next outdoor grow, would be awesome to get 1-2 maybe even 3 harvests in one year.. if im lucky.

    I've grown Dr. Greenthumb's Iranian Indica (short season but not true auto). This strain will continue to grow in veg under 24/0. I have started indoors in March and cloned the Mom. Even the clones were very high yielders, 8-12 z per plant. Planted outside in early June, harvested late August. Big buds, average potency.

    Could i get a big devil #2 to chuck some female pollen on another big devil#2 and several other autos and have my own feminized big devil #2 seeds & thier respective crosses ???

    Of the autos I've grown La Diva is probably the only one I'd bother with again, but probably not. None of them were very good.

    LaDiva was a good one. My first time with her I was getting at least an oz per plant. That's not bad for a beginning grower without any help. Soil, 5 gallon pots and basic Alaska fish emulsion for veg and TNT tomato booster for flower is all I used with tap water set out for 24hrs. The smoke was right up there with my photos that were in the tent. It's not the best pic but its the only one I have left of them. One of the two in the center is her....can't remember which.

    I'll actually second the motion on Delicious Seeds La Diva....did that one a few years back as one of my first grows.....definitely had a really nice berry flavor and killer trichome production! not heavy on the yield but I was doing it under a 400w light and was just beginning ......definitely hope for that one!

    The bud in my Avitar is from an Auto flower, Short Ryder from Nirvana.. Grew four, didn't weigh anything, I never do, I judge by how long my newly harvested plants keep me stoned and these were over 3 months.. I toke daily and so does my wife so I'd say over 4 0Z. Not bad for a plant that was ready in 55 days from seed.. The smoke is very stoneable,(new word I just made up meaning you will get wasted) Another favorite Auto is Afgan Ryder Kush. Not quite as fast growing as the Short Ryder but also very stoneable. Currently growing CriticalKush from Attitude. Not an auto but claims to have 25% thc content we'll,'ll see. I'm in week 3 of flowering and I must say they're looking good.Sorry no pictures but it's dark time as I'm writing this.

    ps Only auto with poor yield and not very stoneable smoke was Bubblicious.I'll never grow that shit again.
    And in case you are wondering I have a 5x7 tent with a 400 watt dual MH/HPS.and I use Fox Farms Ocean Forest and Fox Farm Trio of nutes..

    Unless that's the only way to go, maybe late season or something, I see no purpose for autos when a timer and a bit more time will yield one some amazing smoke (breeder dependent of course). Wasted space in my tent on two autos, never again. Bird seed. I know a grower who grows autos due to (his misconception, imo) time. Really he'd be better off with just fems and not doing a perpetual due to lack of clone space. I haven't enjoyed an auto that comes close to what most growers have. Quality is inconsistent, listed times are inconsistent and yield is variable. Always something 'off' with the high. Unless you absolutely have to, just grow photo plants. You will be much happier with your results. Best of luck either way.

    Autos def aint all theyre cracked up to be but if i could breed me some auto seeds all the local newb caregivers will buy the shit out of em ! Far as im concerned junk is all autos are , photo fems are way better seeds being better than clones of course

    I do find it weird that care givers are growing it. The guy I know is a "care giver" growing autos.. I don't get it. Now I'm a tad younger than some of you folks, and I'm not sure of the validity of the claim, but people always reminisce about some old sativas. Sativas that are hard to find now, and due to breeding (perhaps poorly), we've lost collectively good genetics, or at least narrowed the availability. Breeding autos into the gene pool all over the place probably isn't the best of ideas. Just an opinion.

    I don't worry about auto's ruining the mj gene pool, TY. We both have enough beans to last this lifetime, and regs to make more if supply lines were ever cut off [ highly doubtful ].

    For some reason, and I don't know any more than you do, lots of auto growers are very happy w/ what they grow and smoke. I say it's time to live and let live, smoke and let smoke.
