If you’d really like to earn a stash of OG Kush buds but would like to defer facing the strain’s demanding needs, growing her autoflowering seeds is an excellent option. Auto OGK plants grow between 80 to 180 cm, with wide fan leaves and short internodal spacing. Because this variant is quite small, she is perfect for growing in limited spaces, such as stealth boxes and spandrels (the tiny room underneath the stairs). You may also place her outdoors, like in balconies and terraces, and still keep your all-important privacy.
Auto OG Kush grows vigorously yet requires little care, making her ideal for novices. If you reside in regions with humid climates and short summers, her autoflowering capability is a tremendous benefit. Moisture is this strain’s kryptonite, just like her older photoperiod sister, because her dense and compact structure tends to interfere with air circulation and light exposure, two crucial factors in controlling dampness. The good news is that since an autoflowering lifecycle ends fast, fungi and plagues cannot proliferate quickly enough to affect or start an infestation. Plus, with a lifespan of only 10 to 11 weeks, she can grow outdoors and make the most of the warmest and sunniest season, avoiding the cold autumn breeze.
As one would expect from a cannabis autoflower, OGK Auto needs an adequate diet and as much number of hours of daylight as possible to show her full potential. Indoors, providing 20 to 23 hours of light is common practice amongst autoflowering weed growers. Lack of daylight hours does not impact her growth and she will start flowering regardless, but light is crucial in photosynthesizing and bud production, so less light may mean less buds. We also recommend using 10- to 20-liter pots. Besides getting the suitable container size, you must ensure that the substrate stays well aerated, so the plant roots can readily absorb all available nutes. In addition, water frequently but sparsely to prevent accumulating standing water.
Growing Auto OG Kush outdoors requires constant monitoring as the little lady is susceptible to bugs, molds, and diseases. Moreover, while she can hold out to cooler nights, she needs plenty of sun and ample warmth to produce decent to satisfactory yields.
