The realm of the autoflowering strains is populated by a great variety of contenders, but the real difference in the outcome of the product is not easy to spot. The idea behind an autoflowering strain is derived from two very distinct yet interconnected concepts: security and timing.
Autoflowering strains guarantee a low profile thanks to the small size and fast flowering time, allowing growers to operate in very small spaces indoor or in otherwise impossible conditions outdoors (urban terraces, guerrilla outdoor grows). But it is the timing issue that makes these strains uniquely interesting for all kind of growers, from the personal user up to the money maker. In fact thanks to the autoflowering characteristics it is possible to flower during any photoperiod, allowing crops to come in at times when outdoor production is not possible otherwise.
Thanks to a long and peculiar selection process of the existing autoflowering strains Green House Seed Company is now proud to introduce the new standard in autoflowering genetics, 100% feminized: the GREEN-O-MATIC.
This genetics represent the best autoflowering on the market, stable, fast, reliable. Contrary to most autoflowering strains, the GREEN-O-MATIC is not only short in size and short in flowering time. It is also a true photoperiod-unrelated flowering strain.
This differentiation is the most important one: the true autoflowering trait derived from Ruderalis genetics is here preserved in all its efficiency. These girls flower as soon as they have reached sexual maturity and do not reverse into vegetative growth, no matter how long the days will get.
It is a true improvement from the many existing strains that can flower in less than 60 days and stay short, but still react to changes in the photoperiod.
Having tested these genetics under very different conditions, both indoors and outdoors,
It is clear that the formation of the flower clusters follows the sexual development of the seedling, and begins when the plants are 10 to 15 cm tall and have developed 3-5 small internodes (averaging 3-4 cm). From this moment on, the metabolic functions of the plants are fully dedicated to flowering, independently from the photoperiod.
The aroma of the GREEN-O-MATIC is already kicking at week 4-5 of flowering, and the resin becomes frosty and thick at week 6. The total flowering time is under 8 weeks, with commercial production growers harvesting at 7 weeks on the day. It is a sweet indica smell, with a flowery bouquet and a slightly spicy background.
The main advantage indoors is that the small size (30-40 cm at harvest) allows splitting normal size rooms in 2 grow floors, doubling production per square meter. Outdoors the GREEN-O-MATIC is very easy to camouflage, even during times when there is less vegetation around.
Planting is possible at any time of the year as long as the temperature does not drop below 15 degrees Celsius at night. In places like the Mediterranean coastline it is possible to plant all year round.
The cannabinoid profile of the GREEN-O-MATIC is complex, and not too far from the White family. It is a mostly indica feeling, stoned and fast-hitting. The cerebral side of the high shows itself but never prevails, and the dazed and confused feeling it leaves is a very pleasant one.
The GREEN-O-MATIC is dedicated to all urban outdoor growers, to all guerrilla growers, and to all those who need a short, fast, reliable autoflowering strain. With the 100% quality guarantee you only get from Green House seed Company.
