Big Bud auto is another XXL auto from the Seedstockers collection. The Big Bud genetics produce plants with huge growth potential, especially in optimum conditions. THC levels are high, 22% or more, but the XXL harvests are one of the key attractions of this variety. She grows well indoors in any grow system but reaches her highest yields in hydroponic systems and can easily produce several hundred grams of dry bud from a single plant. This is another great choice for outdoor auto growers. Indoor growers will love the great smoke quality and heavy harvests.

For the first couple of weeks the Big Bud Autoflower appears to grow slowly as she builds a strong root network to support the later rapid growth.
During the 3rd and 4th week, Big Bug Autoflower starts to stretch and increase in vertical hight.
The pre-flower stretch can allow the plant to reach an average hight of around 75 – 100cm, though occasionally the genetics will produce plants that are above one metre tall.
Big Bud Autoflower is a reliable indoor auto, the genetics have been proven over several decades.
As the plants approach week 5-6 the baby blooms can be seen developing on the main cola, at this point the Big Bud Autoflower often starts to produce staggered, alternating nodes. This means that the branches do not grow symmetrically on either side of the stem.
Instead the branches grew in a stepped fashion, often an indicator that the pre-flower stretch is complete and that the plant is ready to enter the final bloom phase where the buds increase in weight and volume.

One of the features of Big Bud Autoflower is the heavy yielding nature of the genetics, and a key part of this is the vigorous growth of side blooms.
In this weeks grow review, the side blooms reached up to within 10 cm of the hight of the main central bloom. With 10-15 heavy yielding and fast growing weed side blooms, the yield on Big Bud can easily be several hundred grams.
Growers with high light levels will get particularly heavy yields.
