Because they grow and flower quicker, growers can fit in multiple autoflower cannabis harvests into the span of one regular harvest.

After completing these steps, it’s time to wait. Check the paper towels once a day to make sure they’re still saturated, and if they are losing moisture, apply more water to keep the seeds happy.
Within a week or so you should see a seedling begin to grow from the soil.
Time to germinate
A couple big drawbacks, though: Autoflower strains are known for being less potent. Also, because they are small in stature, they usually don’t produce big yields.
Male: Small green sacs full of pollen will be seen on the node areas.
Female: Two pistils (the pistil contains the reproductive parts of a flower) will be growing on the buds (flowers grow above these leaves, one cluster on each side).
