Another big name strain from the USA now available in 100% autoflowing feminised format is Auto Zkittlez. Named after the popular sweets ‘Skittles’ due to its fruity taste and aroma, the Zkittlez strain is the result of a cross between Grape Ape and Grapefruit.
We crossed this Indica dominant plant with our auto-line and over several generation managed to produce an excellent autoflowering version. Like all auto strains Auto Zkittlez will begin to flower at around 3 weeks from planting so the key influences on the plants final size will be giving it lots of light, the best quality growing medium and some basic care and attention. If this strain gets a good start it can reach 90-120cm in height (3-4 feet) and will reward you with yields of 30-90g (1-3oz) per plant.
Growing this strain is an absolute pleasure and the colours we have seen during flowering can take your breathe away. The aroma is also quite delicious with grape, candy and citrus tones all in the mix. As this is a high THC strain the effect of Auto Zkittlez is almost instant and the very potent effect is not for the inexperienced.
We have found that Auto Zkittlez helps aid appetite so can be useful for people struggling with a lack of hunger. It is also an excellent all around medical strain helping fight headaches, nausea and chronic pain.
