Since the mid- 1990s AK genetics have been in demand by a large number of breeding projects. It’s a beautiful balance of Sativa and Indica, although the Sativa side of the strain tends to take centre stage. AK gives of a very specific smell as it matures and has a flowering period of just 65 days from seed to harvest. This is due to its amazing autoflowering nature, this express plant is ideal for anyone who doesn’t feel like waiting around for the perfect crop.
It produces hard, tight buds and grows to a height of around 50 – 70 cm. Like almost all other strains it will grow taller outside than in, but this is ideal for indoor growers who don’t have a lot of vertical space. For any growers who are planning on growing indoors ventilation is extremely important. AK has a potent and extremely distinctive scent which may become quickly overpowering. This is something that outdoor growers might need to keep in mind. However if privacy isn’t an issue it grows well in a nutrient-rich environment with low humidity and consistent sun.
This strain also grows well in specialised setups. It responds particularly well to Sea Of Green or Screen of Green and other Deep Water Culture methods. This is due to AK’s short, squat structure. It is wise to leave these plants for as long as possible before harvesting.
AK Auto Feminised is consistent and easy to predict. This is partly due to the fact that it is a feminised strain. The flowers may take a little while to come in but after that growers can basically watch them burst into bloom. The autoflowering and feminised genetics mean that AK is excellent for novice growers. It is perfect for learning everything about cannabis growing and gives great, high quality yields even with some minor mishaps.
