The breeders spent two years stabilizing Quarter Pounder Auto before introducing the seeds to the market via Homegrown Cannabis Co. A combination of top-notch Brazilian genetics, the plant provides generous indoor yields that can easily match up to photoperiods. Even more impressive is its THC strength, which ranges between a far from modest 20% and an insanely potent 27%.
While growers of all skill levels can cultivate this cultivar, newbie smokers are likely biting off more than they can chew by toking it. Its heavyweight effects can be felt right away, unleashing cerebral stimulation that may kick in even before users have a chance to exhale.
The high is creative and motiving, but the relaxing influence tends to banish any such ideas to the status of mellow background amusement. This soothing feeling is also said to bring relief from conditions like stress, anxiety and chronic pain.
Although a predominantly Sativa cultivar, Quarter Pounder Auto displays some Indica features, making it easy to look after. The citrus-scented plant takes longer to finish than other autos, but it makes good use of the extra time by boosting yield size and potency. Other than that, it’s pretty much a ‘tick-all-the-boxes’ plant that even beginners can grow all year round.
Quarter Pounder Auto goes from germination to harvest in 11 to 13 weeks. This longer than usual maturity period allows it to reach up to 7 feet tall, producing bigger, more potent yields in the process. To limit its growth, many gardeners perform Low-Stress Training by week three, which also forces the plant to develop multiple colas, further increasing bud production.
A true hybrid, it has thick and sturdy Indica-like branches that are unlikely to break despite the weight of the massive bud clusters. The leaves are slender, while the colas are long and moderately compacted, much like a traditional Sativa.
Quarter Pounder Auto is a tough beast that can thrive almost anywhere as long as conditions are reasonable. It can endure a great deal of stress without throwing hermie balls or nanners, but you should nevertheless avoid inflicting any physical injuries if at all possible. Otherwise, it may use its energy on recuperating rather than flowering, which may lead to a smaller yield or even plant death.
Unlike photoperiods, autoflowering cultivars don’t need strict daily light schedules or light cycle changes to start fruiting. These simple advantages are especially beneficial to beginners and people who do not have much time to look after their garden. Simply feed it well and avoid overwatering, and it’ll pretty much take care of itself. You can use an existing system or go for your preferred medium as this beauty grows well in any substrate. For optimal nutrition absorption, maintain pH levels between 6.2 and 6.5 for soil and 5.5 to 6.1 for soilless.
Because of its Ruderalis and indigenous Brazilian genetics, Quarter Pounder Auto loves growing outdoors. It can be planted all year round in regions with a frost-free winter season, but to achieve the maximum yield potential of 3.5 to 5.3 ounces per plant, it needs to be grown somewhere warm, dry and sunny. Places with a Mediterranean-type climate, like Southern Europe and coastal California, are ideal.
Indoors, the plant can produce 1.31 ounces of buds per square foot. Give it 18 to 24 hours of light during its entire life cycle to increase bud quality and production. If you use 1000W High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) lights with CO2 then the results are likely to be glorious. Keep the temperature between 68 and 75°F and the RH level around 35 to 45%.
These other tip and tricks will help you to achieve the highest possible yields:
• Prune no later than a week into the flowering stage – and only if needed.
• For an uninterrupted harvest throughout the year, assign separate areas for vegging and flowering plants. After every harvest, move the next batch to the flowering section and start another bunch. A modified version of this method requires vegetating new plants once the older set reaches the 4th week of flowering.
• It’s not uncommon for the upper buds to ripen first. In such cases, you can harvest in sequence and collect the top flowers first, allowing undeveloped nugs to continue maturing until they’re ready for picking.
• Flush two weeks before harvest time to diminish or eliminate the chemical-like taste caused by excess nutrients and salts.
Quarter Pounder Auto’s frosty white trichomes have a rich citrus smell and taste that brings to mind a basket of freshly picked oranges and lemons. The heady blend of sweet and sour also reveals an earthy sharpness on exhale.
Faster than fast-food drive-thru, Quarter Pounder Auto strikes very quickly. It may induce a pulsing sensation in the temples that signals an upcoming increase in thought intensity. Random ideas may suddenly seem far more engrossing, and thoughts will flow in free association. Besides being quite amusing, the cerebral high can also stoke the fires of creativity.
While the mind wants to get productive, the body yearns for the exact opposite. A calming influence comes easy for a cultivar this potent, so expect to spend a large chunk of time chilling out. Potentially useful ideas will have to wait until you sober up, so keep a notebook handy to jot them down. Gather some snacks, flop on the couch, and let this bud show you what it truly means to relax.
Homegrown Cannabis Co.’s autoflowering Quarter Pounder seeds are suitable for growers of all experience levels. The plant can be grown all year round indoors and in places without winter frost. Just 11 to 13 weeks from germination, cultivators can collect up to 1.31 ounces per square foot in a controlled environment, and around 3.5 to 5.3 ounces per outdoor-reared plant. The buds can be used to relax after long hours at work, and are even said to mitigate conditions such as stress, insomnia, poor appetite, and chronic pain.
