Watermelon Auto is a cross of Tropicanna Cookies and Lemon OG with added ruderalis genetics providing the auto-flowering properties with selections taking place over several generations. Watermelon Auto is a fast-finishing strain, 75% indica, 20% sativa and 5% ruderalis, and has an intense terpene profile with the emphasis on limonene and myrcene. Good indoor production and high levels of THC await growers.
Grown indoors, Watermelon Auto plants grow to be 70 – 110 cm. tall producing as much as 500 gr/m2 just 8 – 9 weeks after germination. Left to their own devices plants grow with a strong central cola but low-stress training levels out the canopy resulting in the highest yields. Outdoors plants can be grown directly in the ground or in pots and raised beds. Plants will grow a bit taller at 90 – 120 cm. producing up to 100 gr/plant. Growers in regions with warmer climates will be able to produce more than one crop per year. Buds are dense and sticky with resin.
A rich terpene profile delivers watermelon and other tropical fruits scents and flavours with an earthy finish. THC levels reach 20% and the effect is that of a typical indica with medium levels of CBD to reduce any ‘edginess’.
