Most weed plants require a certain amount of sunshine to graduate from the vegetative to the flowering phase. This process happens best during autumn because that’s when there starts to be more darkness. This nighttime darkness tells plants it’s about to start getting cold outside. But with the best autoflower seeds, the ratio of sun to darkness doesn’t matter.
