For someone who has never grown autoflowering cannabis before, what would be the first growing tip you would offer?
Get great lights. The best light you can give them will result in the best cannabis.
Autoflowering Cannabis plants do not need specific photoperiods, but lighting is extremely important. You can experiment with how many hours of light is best, but for your first grow indoors go with 20-24 hours.
Outdoors, grow your plants in full sun.
Where is the best place to source autoflowering seeds?
Look on the internet. Check local dispensaries. If you are not in a legal area, perhaps you know someone who is and who can get you some seeds.
Some people are looking to grow plants with a higher CBD to THC ratio, is autoflowering cannabis the plant for them, or should they stick with growing hemp for this purpose?
YES! You can find cbd or thc autoflowers...there is a lot of autoflowering hemp, for example.
