Growing Jack Herer Autoflower
As one of the most widely grown ganja strains in the world, it’s not particularly surprising that Jack Herer Autoflower is a straightforward strain to cultivate, and as an autoflowering variety, these seeds don’t rely on light cycles - so they’re even easier to succeed with.
A noticeably small specimen, Jack Herer isn’t likely to get much taller than 3 foot at the most, and is resilient to pests and disease. The combination of tiny stature and hardiness makes this a great strain for growers with little to no experience.

Growers lucky enough to live in a Mediterranean-like climate will be able to harvest more from this strain than those in cooler environments, however even in northern areas the speedy growth of this plant means you can reap around 5.3 ounces per plant, and keep on reaping from May, right through to September.
