Auto Kush is an auto-flowering version of a Kush strain. Kush plants originate in the Hindu Kush mountains which are found in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran and northern India. These are the original has plants that made such an impact in the late 1960s and 1970s.
Auto Kush can be grown in just about any environment thanks to its ruderalis genetics which encourages flowering even in very high latitudes and less than optimum conditions. They are medium-sized plants, about 100 - 120 cm. tall, but with quite long sticky buds on its branches. It is ready to harvest a mere 10 weeks from germinating and has good yields for an auto.
The aroma from this plant is quite heavy, sweet and earthy like a typical Kush strain. In fact if growing indoors with neighbours in close proximity it would be a good idea to use some form of air-filter to control unwanted odours. The effect is typically Kush with a very heavy body stone and female Seeds' say that it is rather more narcotic than its Lemon Kush.

About Female Seeds
Ferry, the creator and head cultivator at Female Seeds started making regular seeds during his studies in the early 90’s, purely as a source of extra income. However, the high demand for new strains from Amsterdam combined with the excellence of the products that Ferry was producing, his business truly exploded and became a major player in the regular cannabis seed business by the end of the 1990’s.
Speaking of this unexpected expansion, Ferry said, “I never thought an extra student income would lead to such a serious business. Ultimately my dream was to save money for a small self-sufficient eco farm.”
At the end of the 21st century, the first feminised seeds were introduced to the market. They were very popular, but also very unreliable. Ferry’s experience in massive regular seed production combined with his engineering background motivated him to investigate how to produce 100% reliable female seeds.
Because of this, Ferry switched his focus from regular to feminised seeds, and by 2003, he introduced Female Seeds to the market. It became a huge success immediately because of his decision to price his seeds below market average while still maintaining the quality of his products. In fact, Female Seeds became so popular in such a short space of time, the company had difficulties to meet the demand.
Around this time, many new feminised seedbanks started to enter the market. However, a good reputation, reliable and unique products, value for money and friendly customer service helped Female Seeds to differentiate ourselves from the mass.
Ferry spoke about the current success of his company saying, “Female Seeds has now entered a state of transition, from a company to a movement to invest in sustainable independent growing systems, like aquaponics and LED systems. Furthermore all profits will be invested into cooperative systems, ecological projects and agriculture. Helping people to have a happy sustainable lifestyle is our overriding goal."
