This plant reaches between 70 cm and 1m in an indoor set up, which makes it good for small cultivation spaces. Growth is rigorous and consistent, with significant stretching of the stem and side branches, which allows for good bud development. The ratio of calyx to leaf is high and this makes for a speedy chop once harvest comes. The buds that Automaria ll produces are big, hard and heavy with resin.
This plant will also give the outdoor gardener something to smile about with a fast turnaround from seed to harvest (70 days although we have had reports of even quicker finishes than that) and can easily grow taller than 1m. It will naturally grow strong and healthy in the south (Mediterranean regions of Europe and America, and in countries in the southern hemisphere). Automaria ll is also a good performer further north and is a popular choice with city gardeners planting in balconies and window boxes and small gardens.
