Super Skunk Automatic is compact, with relatively few branches. It’s strong and sturdy, and produces colas with big, sticky calyxes. Visually, it closely resembles other indicas, with a typically ‘Christmas tree’ form.
This cannabis strain is 80% indica. Its buds are dense and lime green. Much of the flower growth occurs on the central cola. Techniques like fimming or topping aren’t suitable in this instance, as autoflowering strains don’t have a long enough vegetation cycle to allow the methods to take effect.
Super Skunk Automatic is a great choice for gardeners who want a skunk that can thrive in cold, damp climates with short summers. The combined genetics of Super Skunk and a premium Ruderalis results in robust plants with a short flowering time of around seven weeks. The plants will automatically begin blooming around six weeks after germination.
The plants are slightly smaller than other similar strains, which means yields can be lighter. However, they are ‘harvest ready’ more quickly than other plants, which can be an advantage.
Some growers maximise Super Skunk Auto’s potential by planting the seedlings in large pots, as soon as they grow their first set of true leaves. This approach is unusual for cannabis in general, but is recommended for autoflowering strains as they can catch growers by surprise with how swiftly they start flowering. Having a large space for root growth right from the start means that the plants can vegetate and flower without any further disturbance.
