I've had 2 harvests in that time with autos. Quality difference in 2020 isn't enough to justify photos for small personal grows imo. I switched to autos now I can have babies w adults in late flower. I don't have to worry about light leaks. They require less nutes. Set timer 18/6 and done. Easy peasy and always have plants in all stages in one space. So far I get 1 to 4 zips per plant depending on strain. Average is 2 oz per plant I'd say. 70 days seed to bud. Other than that nice job! Just throwing it out there bc my growing is so much easier and more productive now. Switching to autos was best thing ever!
I'm curious about this. Isn't the potency lower? I thought it was a cross with a different strain to make it an auto. This strain doesn't produce as much THC so the auto plants produce less than the normal.
Can you clone autos or are you always paying for seeds?
Gonna go ahead and add my experience with autos. I didn’t hate them, but I wasn’t completely in love with them. Though it might have something to do with the fact that I was running 5 at once instead of the normal 2-3 in a 2×4 space. I loved how fast my seeds from Sweet Seeds (Cream Mandarin & Devil Cream) were and they turned out to be pretty amazing plants. The other 3 were Dutch Passion’s Auto Colorado Cookies and Auto Lemon Zkittlez & Fast Buds’ GSC. They all turned out pretty good! I think the main reason for sticking to photoperiods for me, is that majority of the newer genetics that I’d want just isn’t available in auto form. You won’t be getting any good stable newer genetics with autos, but that wouldn’t really be a problem for most other people. One thing i really did love with autos was being able to start new seeds during the end of flowering because I usually keep an 18/6 or 20/4 light cycle which means they don’t need that extra change in lighting. Overall
Malawi is a pure sativa strain that comes from the Salima region of Malawi in southeast Africa. This strain has an extremely long flowering time, sometimes up to 120 days. Always worth the wait, Malawi produces long and resin-coated buds, a great smoke for any occasion.
Romulawi ♀ is a hybrid of Romulan and an heirloom Malawi from the Santa Cruz Mountains. Plants are tall and stretchy with dense, heavily trichome laden buds smelling of sweet grape funk. Some phenotypes show pink hairs. Most finish in early October.
African Orange ♂ is a cross of Agent Orange and an heirloom Malawi from the Santa Cruz Mountains. The African Orange male providing pollen was big and stretchy, with long node spacing and heavy pollen production. These some of the largest plants we have seen outdoors in the Emerald Triangle, displaying long colas with somewhat weaker branches that appreciate being supported with trellising. African Orange phenotypes have aromas ranging from a musky citrus, to a deep orange funk.
