The AK-47 auto plants will grow fast and tall in the beginning, focusing on vertical growth in the first few weeks after germinating. Right before flowers start to appear, the plants will produce a decent amount of side branches. After this period, the plants will mature really fast. You will the strongest of hybrid phenotypes in the offspring of these Ak-47 cannabis seeds. Growing like a sativa dominant in the beginning, and maturing fast like an indica dominant strain towards the end of its cycle.
When growing this strain indoors, the grower could decrease the time needed to fully flower the plants by increasing the amount of light the plants receive per day. For instance, good results were obtained by letting the AK-47 cannabis plants grow under 20 hours of light per day. Make sure that the plants receive enough nutrients in this period. Another big advantage of this grow style is the limited height that the plants will grow to. So, increasing the amount of day light hours per day will help growers that have limited maximum height in their grow room.
Although the THC percentage of this AK-47 strain is identical to its non autoflowering ancestor, it is not as strong hitting as the original AK-47. The main reason for this is the slightly less favorable “cannabinoid to biomass ratio” that the plants that are grown from these AK-47 cannabis seeds will have in the final stages before harvest.
