About Auto Creeper cannabis seeds
In the 80’s the SSSC worked with an indica strain called Williams Wonder. It was an interesting and occasionally freaky strain for research. Sometimes it showed autoflowering characteristics. This was unusual, auto genetics was far from understood in those days.
Autoflower seed varieties need careful research, there are still plenty of underperforming low potency dwarfs from the lesser seed companies. However, there has been some truly exceptional autoflower genetics created recently as well. These sometimes came via selectively inbreeding autoflowers with the best genetics over many generations. When done well, this preserves the autoflower gene as well as the THC-rich characteristics and taste/aroma from the photoperiod parent genetics.
After studying autoflower breeding we worked on Auto Creeper. In our opinion, this brings a whole new approach to autos. When the SSSC was re-established we knew that a good autoflower variety was required for the modern seed collection. But it had to be of superior quality to the typical ‘mid-quality’ auto strains which dominate much of today’s market.
Auto Creeper was made from scratch using THC rich genetics from our photoperiod Creeper sativa. We still had the autoflowering version of the original Williams Wonder in our seed archive. This was used to give the autoflowering characteristics to genetics.
More than 3 years of effort and lots of backcrossing to the original Creeper was required until the team was satisfied with the quality. Auto Creeper is usually around a meter high with extensive side branching. She takes around 12 to 13 weeks to grow from seed 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 smell and powerful effects are genuine sativa.
