Thanks to breeders with a passion for developing the best strains, we can now see many autoflowers being appreciated. Growers were apprehensive about autoflowers mainly because of the unforgiving nature of the plants. They also weren’t good in terms of yield when compared to photoperiod strains.
So, now that we have covered how to get the best yields out of your autoflowers, let’s move on to the top 5 high yield autoflowers that can make your friends turn green with envy.
To grow autoflowers or not to grow…that is the question. Autoflowering cannabis strains have been a hot topic for many cannabis growers. Just a few years ago, there were many people that wouldn’t touch autoflowering seeds with a ten-foot pole. However, things have changed. And how!

Most autoflowers don’t require a heavy dose of nutrients, but there are exceptions like Zkittlez Auto that require nutrients from the very first week.
