Unlike photoperiod strains, autoflowering strains start to mature and make flowers/buds on their own without any change in light schedule. This keeps plants small and it acts more like a house plant (just water it and wait for
harvest).Auto-flowering strains are essentially immune to problems from light leaks (light at the wrong time can cause accidental re-vegging or hermies in photoperiod plants). The biggest downsides are reduced strain choice and plants stay
verysmall at harvest if they get a slow start.
