Speed + is a hybrid of Critical Mass Automatic and Speed Devil #2. This is a third generation strain which has taken on the extremely fast flowering and pleasant aroma of its two parent plants.
Critical Mass has been a popular strain for a long time and is most famed for its rapid flowering a distinctive aroma.
It is also well known for its huge yields, hence the name Critical Mass and was created from Afghani and Skunk #1 genetics by the Mr Nice Seed Bank. Speed Devil #2 was created between 2009 - 2010 and is also extremely well known for its extremely fast flowering and its increased height.
So Speed + is not only extremely fast flowering, making it perfect for those experiencing short summers, but is also a strain born from high quality stock.
This speed + strain is both auto-flowering and feminised making it extremely easy to grow for any level of grower. These genetic alterations were introduced into the cannabis community as a way of making growing a little more accessible and just plain easier.
Auto-flowering has a lot of impressive attributes that make growing an absolute breeze.
For a start it gets the name auto-flowering from the fact that an auto-flowering plant will flower at a certain time in its life completely on its own, this means that the grower does not have to figure out a specific light cycle in order to convince the plant to flower.
This in turn means that the flowering time of auto-flowering plants is much shorter than that of regular plants, making them perfect for those who experience short summers.
It also means that growers need not keep separate areas for vegetation and for flowering saving a lot of time and space.
Feminising a strain simply entails ensuring that the seeds will only grow into female plants. For a lot of growers this is extremely useful as they have no need for the male plants. The only thing that the male plants actually do is produce the pollen necessary for fertilisation.
So for many growers the male plants are a hindrance, feminising seeds means that the male plants simply don't grow.
Thus, growers can just buy as many seeds as their desired number of females and they can save time and energy on not having to remove the male plants at the start of the flowering period.
The flowering time of this plant is just 49 days with an indoor yield of 350-500 g/m2 and an outdoor yield of 30-150 g/plant.
Please remember that the growing of cannabis plants and the cultivation of seeds is illegal in some countries - please check the laws of your country and don't be growing any plants if it is against your country's laws.
