Many growers like to grow this great autoflowering Haze under 24 hour light for the first 2-3 weeks. This gives the plant a great start. This variety is simple to grow in any grow medium.
Santa Marta Haze Autoflower is a THC rich autoflowering Haze variety which is very easy to grow. The genetics come from Amnesia Haze x Santa Marta, which is a Colombian jungle Haze. This autoflowering version takes around 75 days from seed to harvest and grows well under 20 hours of daily light indoors, reaching around a metre tall. Outdoor she takes 90-100 days. The buds have a sparkling resinous appearance and deliver an exceptionally powerful and long lasting psychedelic Haze high with a fresh, fruity and pine aroma. It’s an easy and uncomplicated variety to grow with THC levels over 20%. Yields are very high on this variety, but most repeat growers love her for the top quality high.
This plant was grown in soil, but she grows well in any of the normal grow mediums/systems. Growers that prefer to use coco fibre or hydroponics should see even faster growth rates and heavier yields. Once the autoflower reaches around 3 weeks old most people grow her under a 20/4 light cycle. This means 20 hours of daily light followed by 4 hours of darkness. Some growers do like to grow under 24/0 light (permanent light with no dark period), however this can make nutrient deficiencies difficult to control and in general most growers prefer a 20/4 grow cycle.
Santa Marta Auto delivers a nice combination of extremely potent harvests together with simplicity. You don’t need extensive growing experience to get a harvest of powerful weed from this variety.
This is one of those remarkably robust varieties which Seedstockers also recommend to first time growers. Soil growers will note that this really is a simple variety to grow.
If you grow this variety in a large container of soil, e.g. 30 litres or more, then there is no need to worry about extra nutrients until the last 4-5 weeks of growth.
And at that point a simple bloom boost from the grow shop or garden centre will do a great job. Of course the experienced grower will get great results from this variety and will find that the genetics are quite capable of being pushed for several hundred grams of harvest from each plant, especially under sophisticated hydroponics conditions with powerful grow lights.
Santa Marta auto usually starts to show female pre-flowers around day 25. And many people harvest her indoors around 75 days after gemination. However, these powerful and heavy yielding Haze auto genetics can be allowed an extra week or two at the end of bloom and they will continue swelling.
As this weeks pictures show, Santa Marta Haze autoflower can deliver some very chunky blooms. This variety really responds well to intense grow room lighting during the last 4-6 weeks of life. The genetics are good enough to ensure that even the lower branches and side blooms can deliver exceptionally heavy results. But the real beauty of Santa Marta Haze autoflower is the resin production. These genetics were selected specifically for soaring psychedelic high which comes from the intense potent THC production and resin formation.
This weeks blog shows a plant home grown in soil/perlite mix and grown under LED grow lights.
Seedstockers see lots of repeat growers enjoying great results from this variety.
Outdoors, with slightly less optimized lighting, environmental and temperature conditions, most autoflower seeds take longer to complete their growth cycle. An autoflower seed which takes 75 days indoors (with 20/4 lighting) might take nearer 100 days outdoors.
Santa Marta Auto usually takes around 100 days outdoors. She prefers warm climates without the risk of frost, and also loves a sheltered outdoor position which enjoys the maximum amount of sunlight each day.
Santa Marta Haze Autoflower establishes a good root network quickly, she thrives in good quality soil and will produce large (1 metre+) plants outdoors in good conditions.
Just try to select the sunniest 3 months for her growth cycle, sit back and admire the results!
Anyone who has enjoyed smoking/vaping a well cured Amnesia Haze will love the chance to try Santa Marta Haze autoflower. You can expect a powerful initial sense of euphoria, Haze does this wonderfully well. The high lasts for several hours and is supremely stimulating as well as relaxing. You will notice a strong creative energy, typical of the best Haze genetics.
It’s a great variety, equally suited to smoking outdoors on a bright summer day or enjoying inside on a cold winters night when the fire is roaring. This is a very pleasant feel-good vape/smoke. For some home growers there is nothing that quite matches the exhilaration of a powerful Haze.
