After studying auto-flowering in relation to breeding SSSC worked on Auto Creeper. We think this brings a whole new approach to auto strains. When the SSSC was re-established we knew that a good auto strain was essential for a contemporary seed collection. But, it had to be of superior quality to the typical ‘mid-quality’ auto strains which dominate much of the market these days.
Auto Creeper was made from scratch using THC-rich genetics from our photo-period Creeper sativa strain. We still had the auto-flowering version of the original Williams Wonder in our seed archive and this was used to add the auto-flowering genetics.
More than 3 years of effort and lots of back-crossing to the original Creeper was required until the team was satisfied with the quality. Auto Creeper is usually around a metre tall with extensive side-branching. She takes around 12 weeks to grow from seed through to harvest – occasionally a couple of weeks longer for the heaviest-yielding phenotypes. The buds look like real sativa flowers, long and stretchy. You may notice some broad indica-shaped leaves from the Williams Wonder indica heritage but the scent and powerful effects are genuine sativa. You can expect generous yields, especially under intense light conditions.
