Auto Think Big has a diverse terpene profile. She generally has a fruity, citrus-dominant aroma with both sweet and floral notes. Her taste is sweet, fresh and fruity – reminiscent of the zest of a ripe lemon
Auto Think Big is a unique autoflower that originated from our world-famous Auto Think Different. It will therefore not surprise you that in terms of terpenes, this strain shows similarities with our Auto Think Different. Although some Auto Think Big phenotypes may have a similar terpene profile, she is usually slightly different in smell and taste to her parent. In general, Auto Think Big has a fruity, citrus-dominant aroma with mainly floral and sweet notes.
She can also smell a bit creamy and pine-like. In terms of taste, she leans most towards citrus, lime and frankincense. When you smoke her in a joint or consume her with a vape, you will immediately taste her fruity sweet flavours. On both the inhale and exhale you can experience a strong citrus taste that reminds you of the zest of a lemon. All in all, a very diverse flavour profile that you just have to try once!
Auto Think Big is a commercial autoflower strain, she remains compact but with a very high yield
Auto Think Big is a ‘one-of-a-kind’ autoflower which is known for her large yield in combination with a very compact structure. It is not often that you come across an autoflower that is able to provide you with such thick buds and yields while the plant remains average in height. Literally the whole plant is filled from head to toe with flowers! This makes it extremely suitable for growers who like to work with compact plants in, for example, multi-layer growing facilities.
What kind of genetics are in Auto Think Big exactly?
Auto Think Big is a highly productive autoflower based on the legendary Auto Think Different genetics. Auto Think Big emerged from a small selection of special XXL Auto Think Different plants chosen from a few hundred plants grown from autoflower seed. These formed the basis for Auto Think Big. The AK420 genetics used in our Auto Think Different make for a stable and potent product. By careful selective breeding we have come to this commercially interesting compact autoflower variety.
Auto Think Big is a compact hybrid autoflower with thick round buds and lots of resin
Auto Think Big is very ‘big’ when it comes to the final yield you can achieve. These are usually small stocky plants which produce very thick flowers. They are certainly not the tallest/largest plants, but this fact is what makes our Auto Think Big so interesting for commercial growers looking for the highest yield. Growth during the first few weeks of her life can seem rather slow. She continues to grow steadily, but she is certainly not a ‘stretchy strain’.
This auto has a compact and bushy structure with thick sturdy branches. She certainly grows in width, but also remains quite compact. This is a robust autoflower that stays below 1m in height in almost all cases. Of course there are exceptions. But in general you will get a plant between 50-75 cm that is filled from head to toe with thick buds, sometimes as big and wide as your leg!
This strain originated from a breeding program that focused on yield and potency. She is considered by experienced growers to be one of the most potent strains in our autoflower collection. The Sativa-dominant phenotypes may take a little longer than most autoflowers but they are well worth the wait!
Auto Think Big is easy to grow and her medium size makes her very manageable/controllable without sacrificing yield or potency. Growing this strain is uncomplicated and she knows how to provide you with a generous yield and a pleasant growing experience at all times. The only downside to this variety that we can think of is that you have to wait just a little longer before you can harvest her big resinous buds!
In addition, she is suitable for just about any type of grow method. She does well the natural way and excels in a SOG setup. The heaviest & highest yields can therefore be achieved in a SOG set-up. If you want to push her to the maximum, grow her in a hydro setup with powerful LED lights in a SOG. Auto Think Big has a short internode distance. The buds grow completely together and can become extremely large and full. When you let her ripen well, the buds also become fairly compact.
The genetics used for Auto Think Big guarantee the following properties:
- A compact bushy autoflower with a big main bloom and very full side blooms
- Auto Think Big is a very commercial variety, she produces firm flowers with a good flower-to-leaf ratio. These are easy and quick to cut
- The resin production is sensational. The buds are loaded with trichomes and have a high THC percentage and a potent terpene profile
Auto Think Big is an easy-to-grow autoflower that can deliver lavish yields. Her full blooms will please even the most demanding growers.
Effects of Auto Think Big
Auto Think Big has a high potency and therefore also a strong and long-lasting effect. The buds of this cannabis strain are resinous and sticky. The thick layer of trichomes provides a potent cannabinoid profile. This makes the cannabis strong and narcotic. The effect can best be described as a powerful ‘up-lifting’ Sativa high.
The high is very energetic, creative and social at first. It has an invigorating effect that motivates you to start doing things or to engage in creative tasks. But keep in mind that at high doses she can provide a powerful relaxing effect, meaning that you may prefer to sit back and rest. She has no couch-lock at all, so it is recommended to consume her mainly during the day and in the early evening. It is a wonderful high to end the (work) day with and put on some music or play your favourite game.
The flowering time of Auto Think Big
Auto Think Big is a carefully selected autoflowering cannabis strain with a high yield and high potency. The best results will be obtained when she is given the full 13-14 weeks to finish flowering. This maturing process is important in order to reach full potential. It is recommended to grow her on a 20/4 light schedule. Although there are also growers who have achieved very good results with a 24/0 schedule. She is usually ready in 13 to 14 weeks from autoflower seed to harvest and yields have XXL potential both indoors and outdoors.
Outdoors, however, it may take 1 to a maximum of 2 weeks longer to mature. This is usually due to cold night temperatures or large differences between day and night. We do not recommend growing this strain in the most northern areas (with very short summers and cold temperatures) or in areas near the equator (with high humidity and high temperatures). The thick, full buds do not like moisture and can get into trouble. Some support for the heavy flowers is recommended towards the end of flowering.
The yield of Auto Think Big
Auto Think Big is a medium height autoflower. She produces solid XXL yields and takes a little longer to finish flowering than the average autoflower. The two to three extra weeks it takes for Think Big to finish flowering are also responsible for the amazing yields when treated with love. Occasional plants can yield several hundred grams each, especially when grown by an experienced grower. As mentioned before, the highest yields are possible with a SOG.
A yield of about 500-600 g/m² should be achievable for anyone with moderate experience. Experts can achieve between 600-750 g/m² with the right growing method, lighting and care. The best growers could even improve it to well over 800g/m², which is very rare! Occasional plants can yield several hundred grams each, especially when grown in a sunny and dry climate. This is an XXL autoflower that will not disappoint you!
With an average flowering time of around 13-14 weeks, Auto Think Big is definitely not a fast autoflower. You could harvest some phenotypes earlier, around week 12 for example, but we recommend waiting until this lady has finished flowering completely. During the last few weeks, her flowers become fuller and more compact. This ultimately provides the XXL yield you are looking for!
You can achieve really extreme m² yields with this lady. Give her enough light and she will reward you richly. This is a strain that we classify as a ‘light feeder’. Strong, powerful (LED) lamps ensure an exuberant bloom. Make sure you build this up evenly. The young plants have to get used to the strong light, so hang the lamps a lot higher during the first month. If you have a dimmer, you can dim your light during the first weeks to a light intensity that is more appropriate for early growth.
She can be grown on a 24/0 light schedule but keep in mind that she can get light stress, so look closely at the plants and what they can handle. She can also develop certain nutritional problems. Experts can usually handle this well, but novice growers can’t. That’s why we normally recommend just growing her on a 20/4 schedule for best results.
