What is the difference between autoflower, fast and feminized seeds?
Orange Skunk feminized seeds produce a regular cannabis plant when grown, one that flowers when it thinks the summer is over, or when you change the light cycle. By choosing Orange Skunk feminized seeds over Orange Skunk regular seeds you run next to no risk of finding male plants in your batch, males which will pollinate and contaminate the bud-producing females.
Not all growers are as dedicated and some of us just want to grow some weed at home with as little effort as possible. Autoflower seeds give you a cannabis plant that doesn't need a change in light-cycle to enter bloom.
Orange Skunk autoflower seeds are a genetic mix of hybrid and ruderalis, the plant has a gene that tells it when to flower; based on size and age. More and more growers are turning to fast versions, specially bred strains that flower in two weeks less than a regular strain.
Fast versions are produced by breeding in some ruderalis genetics with the hybrid strain to make a plant that will reach harvest even quicker.
Will Orange Skunk feminized seeds grow better outdoors or indoors?
Outdoors or indoors really depends on what's available for you, the state you live in, and the climate there. Factors like space and cost play a big part in deciding whether to grow outdoors or indoors.
