What do sativa autos look like?

In terms of appearance, Sativa autoflowering plants typically grow tall and with long narrow leaves and a slender structure. The buds are also usually a little less dense than what Indica autos produce, but that doesn’t mean they are any less potent.

They grow very fast during the veg stage and typically begin flowering in just a few weeks (3 to 4) after germination. This accelerated lifecycle allows for multiple harvests within a single year.

How much do sativa autoflowers yield?

On average Sativa autoflowers can produce anywhere from 150 to 300 grams per plant when grown in the right climate outdoors, or 300 to 500 grams per square meter indoors. Again, this is a very rough estimate, with some Sativa autos being able to easily top these figures, so make sure you do your research before you start growing to get the most out of your plants.

 Growing tips for sativa autoflowering strains

  • One effective technique to enhance light exposure and airflow while ensuring minimal stress on the plant is through the use of Low-Stress Training (LST). By carefully bending and tying down the branches as they grow, you can create a more even canopy and encourage the plants to produce more buds.
  • Sativa autos generally do well in slightly warmer and more humid environments, so make sure to provide them with the right conditions to thrive.
  • Consider using organic soil, as it can help enhance the flavor and aroma of Sativa autoflowers.
  • These strains are particularly well-suited for cultivation methods such as Screen of Green (SCROG) or Sea of Green (SOG), which optimize space and maximize yield.
  • For optimal growth, it is recommended to maintain a light schedule of either 18 hours on and 6 hours off (18/6) or 20 hours on and 4 hours off (20/4).
  • Due to their compact size, these strains are ideal for small indoor setups, making them a convenient choice for growers with limited space.
  • It is important to exercise caution when it comes to nutrient application, as these strains tend to be sensitive to overfeeding. Taking a gentle approach with the nutrient regimen will help ensure healthy growth and development.
