DIY Autoflowering Cannabis

An Easy Way to Grow Your Own

by Jeff Lowenfels



Cannabis prohibition is ending around the world and there’s a new bud in town — auto-flowering cannabis. As easy to grow as tomatoes, auto-flowering cannabis is the perfect new plant for the home gardener who has limited time and space.

Unlike commercially grown cannabis, auto-flowering cannabis plants are small, container-grown, day-neutral, require no special lights or equipment, and grow incredibly fast – from seed to harvest in as little as seven weeks.

Written by gardening authority Jeff Lowenfels, DIY Auto-flowering Cannabis is a full-color, illustrated guide for everyone wanting to grow their own. It covers:

  • The history and benefits of auto-flowering cannabis
  • Its origins, chemistry, and growing habits
  • Step-by-step growing methods, including tips, tricks, supplies, and seed sourcing
  • How to harvest, process, and breed your new plants.

If you are a home gardener or already grow cannabis, you too can learn how to grow this new plant with ease, all while reaping its many benefits, such as harvesting it for medical use, recreational use, or simply as a decorative, sweet-smelling flower to enjoy. If you like to grow tomatoes, you will love growing auto-flowering cannabis.
