AutoXtreme (Dutch Passion)
An autoflowering version of Haze, it grows taller than most autos - up to 5 feet and flowers for 2 weeks longer. It gets bushy, likes big pots, a lot water and high doses of ferts, responds well to LST and ScrOG. It is also good for greenhouses because doesn't mind heat. You may have to remove some of the dense foliage. The branches will need support when buds become really heavy.
A powerful energizing trip that quickly transforms into an extreme body stone.

AutoXtreme is the exceptional result of a 2 year collaboration between Dutch Passion and DinaFem using some special Haze genetics from Dutch Passion. The project took a lot a careful growing and selection before we were prepared to approve it. The genetics are based on our OutLaw ® (Amnesia x Super Haze) photoperiod variety and have been adapted into an AutoFem which delivers a powerful sativa Haze influence alongside very generous yields. This variety is exclusively available from Dutch Passion.
AutoXtreme is harvested around 85 days after germination. This is a little longer than other AutoFems, but with this variety the extra time was needed to give the best combination of potency, taste and crop size. As a result the plants may be a little larger than usual, up to 1.5m tall. This is a new AutoFem and one which will be very hard to beat.
82 days old now been flushing dwc for 5 days old lots of cloudy trichromes amber pitsils...

Auto extreme was easy to grow. I got 3 seeds and they game me no trouble the whole way through. I had a humidity issue so I left the lights on 24/0 per day. They didn't mind all that light in the slightest. Around day 75 I chopped them. They are now my favorite auto strain. I grew them with a few other sativas but the autoextreme high is the best. It is a fun, sociable, energetic experience. I would recommend anyone to try this strain. You really won't be disappointed. Great yields and potency!
The mac (dutch-passion.nl):
Just harvested my grow. Must say autoxtreme delivered the goods. Nice flavour nice stone. Quite trippy. I've been using 400w dual spectrum lights grown in soil and the main cola on just 1 plant came in at 57.4 grams. Amazing strain. Well done DP you have done us proud.
I tried a bud that had been speed dried, it had apparently flowered super fast and hadnt been flushed - and yes it tasted like plant food - but the smell was quite amazing when broken fruity but very unusual, as to the high - excellent, relaxing and uplifting and very trippy, very strong, very good .
Most potent auto I have tried to date hands down. Very fond of this and if you didnt tell somebody they would never suspect it is an auto. Great job DP!
50 seeds in eazyplugs and 50 came out, i'm very happy with the start, cant wait to see what comes in 11 weeks
Grow Report #1
The AutoXtreme [grown by 'Tang'] yielded around 350g+ of top strength, Haze-quality, cannabis and was grown in a 15 litre airpot with Plagron Light soil with Advanced Nutrients. The LED lights were manufactured by Grow Northern (Dutch Passions LED technology partner). What made this grow particularly interesting is that the LED’s used the next-generation Lumiled ‘Rebel’ LED’s which have almost twice the light intensity of many of the current LED’s. The extra intensity of the new LED’s has really helped push AutoXtreme to her genetic limits.
The following words... are from Tang.
“This is the second time I've grown this strain and again I only germinated one seed so no picking the best phenotype like I sometimes do. I was totally amazed with the speed of the growth the only other plant I've had grow that fast was my previous AutoExtreme. She was grown in my usual 15L Airpots with Plagron light soil and Advanced Nutrients under 2 GN Rebel MS0004 (120w each). The amount of side branches she produced was incredible and I could tell early on she was a bit special.”
“Into bloom she was being watered 2L every 12 hrs and stood at 120cm from the top of the soil. The aroma came through quite early and was instantly recognisable having grow it before. As with the previous AutoExtreme I had to support her with garden twine,this gave me a chance to manipulate the shape to suit to room and lights better, I had the two lights angled to give maximum coverage.”
“The biggest differences between this and the last AutoXtreme I grew were the amount of side branches on this one and how fat they got. The two plants took the same amount of time and produced identical looking,smelling and tasting buds. The only thing I don't like about this strain is the amount of leaves to take off when it comes to trimming and the sheer amount of buds I had to trim lol she came in at 388g before going into curing jars but it would probably be closer to 350g had I done a better trim.”
“The buzz is lovely it's very strong and uplifting with waves of euphoria to boot, it's one I can't leave alone. The smell and taste is very hazy as you would expect but there is menthol there with some spices too. It lingers on the taste buds which I love.
“If I could give any tips on this strain they would be have some string ready and be prepared for a big plant with the same size appetite, this girl was fed twice a day at EC 2.0 in the later stages. I have one of three magic AutoXtreme seeds left and I can't wait to plant it.”
Grow Report #2
JTang grew AutoXtreme in a 14 litre soil container called an airpot. Airpots are similar to conventional plant pots but with numerous air-holes in the side to allow for better root aeration and growth. JTang grew a single plant under two LED panels from Grow Northern LED which used 180W each. The AutoXtreme grew into a beautiful Christmas tree structure with a huge central bloom surrounded by a ring of large and heavy side blooms. JTang had to tie each side bloom to the central stem to prevent them collapsing under their own weight. The weight of the dried bud was 303g, a fantastic achievement which shows that soil-growers, as well as hydro growers, can achieve spectacular results with a good quality modern auto.
Here are a few comments from JTang himself:
“My overall impression of AutoXtreme, she was a joy to grow from start to finish she gave me zero problems apart from the buds being heavy and needing support… but that's not really a problem. The aroma is quite unique and took me a while realise what it smells of it’s kind of like a well known menthol vapour rub (called ‘Vicks’) and coconut milk....delicious”
“My advice would be If you want to grow her to full potential use a big (15 -20L) Airpot and get some string (to support the branches) because the buds get heavy and she is quite tall. She would do well with ScrOG and I'm watching a grow now where she is taking well to LST. She was thirsty when in full bloom too drinking 3L a day. I feed daily and at the highest the EC (nutrient concentration) was 2.0 “
“I have had a little taste test in the vaporizer and it packs a punch already. I've recently grown Outlaw which is the photoperiod parent strain and the buzz is very similar with an initial heavy head hit mellowing into a soaring sativa high...just lovely. The pre cure taste is a hazy lime, 3 or 4 weeks she will taste amazing I'm sure. Dutch Passion have done it again with this strain. there collaboration with Dinafem is an Autofem groundbreaker as Think Different was before her. I'm really looking forward to seeing people grow this strain in different mediums and outdoors.”
Grow Report #3
The Dutch Passion AutoXtreme grown in this weeks blog was the growers first time growing autoflowering cannabis, and only his second grow in total...
The details... come from [the grower] Si Wee Tang [himself] who germinated a 7-pack of AutoXtreme...
“I germinated 7 AutoXtreme seeds between paper towels on a plate then covered the paper towels with a plate. They all germinated after 72 hours I then transplanted into 2 litre pots using a coco/perlite 50/50 mix. I then put all 7 in the tent under 4x T5 fluorescent tubes with a 6-inch fan blowing on them to make them as strong as possible. After a week under the T5 fluorescent tubes I transferred to final pots which were 4x 6.5 litre round pots and 3 x15 litre gorilla tubs”
“I then fed them at 1/4 strength nutrients using rhizotonic along with Canna A & B. I continued, after a couple of weeks the growth was slow then all off a sudden BOOM!, the plants went crazy. So I decided I would try topping one of them (cut off the growing tip with scissors) which I did then with one and then all of them. I did a lot of LST (low stress training, e.g. tying the branches down) to even out the growth as much as possible which they absolutely loved. This surprised me since everything I had read about autos told me not to do anything with them. I forgot to mention the plants were now under 2x600 watt HPS lights. I added Big Bud to the feed schedule at half strength but upped the rhizotonic and canna to full strength since plants were now strong enough.”
“I continued with this feed until week 9 then added some bud candy and finally added the overdrive for the last 2 weeks before flushing for a week with just water. Overall this plant is an absolute legend in my eyes. They took everything I threw at it them and came back stronger than ever”
“Finally I added the ‘Overdrive’ nutrient for the last 2 weeks. Then I flushed the plants for a week with just water. Total time from seed to harvest was 90 days. I took an overall dry weight of 25 oz (700g) from the 7 AutoXtremes which I think is pretty good and I forgot to say this is my first auto grow and only my second grow in total. So I’m a total newbie who did a lot of research before going ahead and I had help from a few great growers. My lighting was 2x600 watt HPS I used a coco-fibre and perlite mix in a variety of containers from 6 litres to 14 litres. One thing I will do next time is stick to the larger containers.”
“The feeds were Rhizotonic root stim, with Canna A & B throughout. In preflower I added ‘Big bud’ and ‘Bud Candy’ nutrients. In the last few weeks I added overdrive then flushed with water for a week".
Grow Report #4
This grow was my first attempt with LED, (HydroGrowLed Sol-9 450w with 50w chipsets). Plants were germinated in ‘root riots’ and grown in 15L pots with Plagron Light compost with BioBizz Nutrients Fish-Mix & Bloom. Light was on 20/4 (20 hours light, followed by 4 hours darkness). The strains were Dutch Passion AutoWhite Widow, AutoXtreme & Taiga#2.
After the success of the first grow (Blue AutoMazar) using the ‘garden cane technique’, I was eager to try it again. I attach three garden canes to a square 15L pot with cable ties. There are 2 plants in each container, and they are trained along the canes horizontally in opposite directions. The main stem of each plant is tied down to the middle cane and the side branches are tied down by use of the two outside canes.
The principal is to maximise the growth of blooms on lower branches, by aggressively tying down the stem horizontally. This will force on the side branching on the lower 3 nodes of the plant. When the side branches grow they are tied to the outside canes, but it's very important to tie them after the first node on each side branch.
The tops of the side branches are then held down to allow the two branches at the first node of the side branch to develop, these are allowed to grow upwards at the same rate as the top of the branch, in effect giving you three colas on each side branch.
This allows for many more blooms to develop than normal, and these are true full size colas. A couple of the largest blooms were from the very first nodes on the first side branch. The even canopy that is created allows much better use of the available light.
I do a fair amount of defoliating this helps with light penetration. And if any branches stretch too far these can easily be super-cropped, to help maintain the overall canopy height.
The plants all responded well to the training...
The AutoXtreme really surprised me this grow, as I had a very different pheno than i had the first time around. It produced very long dense blooms and the smell was citrus on the nose, exceptionally sweet, and it was there in the smoke, but the thing about AutoXtreme is the very up high, that quickly turns into one of the heaviest stones, a real heavy body stone, I love smoking it on the couch and watching a movie, eating various sweet treats and falling asleep - the perfect night in.
The total yield for the grow was 487g from just five plants, each one averaging out at just under 100g, or roughly 200g per 15L pot. I was also very impressed with the LED, the difference in growth in the early stages of the grow is something else, everything seems to happen at once, side branches come quick and fast and the colour and general health of the plants was a thing to behold.
All strains in my opinion are easy to grow, so would suit novices and pro’s alike. And the cane technique just helps to enhance the yield of already high yielding plants. Training like this is a bit of work in the early stages, but the rewards are well worth the effort.
Grow Report #5
... the grower, ‘Fairlynew’, got a huge harvest from his 4 Think Differents and 2 AutoXtreme plants. The plants were grown under LED in a soil-free mixture of moss/perlite. The grower used the LED lights on full power for 24 hours each day for the entire grow, from seed to harvest...
Fairlynew compares Think Different and AutoXtreme:
“The Think Different has a very fruity STRONG smell in my opinion. The Think Different is a fun upbeat high at first then becomes quite stoney. If you smoke a little too much you can say ‘good night’. I was worried I would only like Think Different for its ability to finish quickly and give me some smoke. But I am going to keep on growing it as a staple in my grow room. I cannot tell the difference from photo strains to this auto strain Think Different. The Auto Xtreme is one nice smelling strain very pungent a great daytime smoke get stuff done weed. But do not over indulge because like any great strain it will floor you and you will need a nap”
“The plants grew amazingly. The pictures should speak volumes, I got pounds of great smoke off of six plants, two Auto Xtreme and four Think Different. The only thing I will change is the grow room temperature from 30/31ºC to 28ºC. The auto extreme does not like the the heat as much as the Think Different but both will thrive at the lower temperature”
“My advice to future growers: do not play with the plants at all, do not cut the growing top off, do not LST (low stress training) just let them grow. They are on a tight schedule to get huge, so every day counts. I ran a 24 hour light schedule, they need energy to get HUGE. In my opinion no rest period is needed but that is my opinion. I used AN ‘pH perfect’ nutrients, I didn’t use a meter to read the EC or pH. I grew in sunshine mix number 4 (soil-free moss/perlite growing medium)”
“I used LED grow lights. I was running a COB (chip on board) 1200 watt (made in china) grow light, the actual power draw was 660 watts. I also used three ‘Apollo six’ LED's which used 200 watts each and a 300 watt LED with an actual power draw of 155 watts. Total ~1350W of LED. I used a bank of eight T5 florescent lights for seedling and vegging for the first two weeks. I used 20 litre airpots and 20 litre smart pots. I weighed the two Auto Xtremes and one Think Different, it came to 24 ounces (680g) dry weight for the three plants. I never weighed the other three plants. I would say at least 18 to 20 ounces (560g) off the other three easy if not more”.
Grow Report #6
This weeks blog features a greenhouse grow review of Dutch Passion’s AutoXtreme by Belgium’s legal cannabis social club ‘TUP’. The TUP club got a good result from AutoXtreme, a generous 160g average harvest just 11 weeks after the seeds were planted. The heaviest plant produced 250g of cannabis and the TUP members seemed happy with the result. TUP themselves provided the words... for this weeks blog:
Dear readers and supporters
After a successful grow of the Think Different super autofem from Dutch Passion, we chose as next variety their biggest yielder amongst their super autofems: the AutoXtreme.
We notice that in our club, there’s a certain demand for ‘haze’ varieties. In a sense, that is what we are looking for with this strain. Beautiful, slender ‘haze’ nuggets with hard and compact calyxes is what those members want, grown organically of course. The effect that we’re looking for is a clear, yet powerful high that stays for hours.
Most climate conditions were the same as the previous grow, except for the fact we were in full summertime. So temperatures rose almost to the point of cracking our mercury thermometers. This was a very exciting grow with some staggering results!
The AutoXtreme were planted as the Think Different went into the flowering stage. The AutoXtreme is a Hazy super autofem, comprised of the best Haze genetics Dutch Passion has to offer.
The seeds where planted directly into the soil. After a few days we saw 8 little seedlings popping up. After a week, one showed a leaf mutation and was terminated. We kept 7 AutoXtremes to flower with. AutoXtreme was planted the 21st of May. Each plant was spaced 1m from the other.
AutoXtreme grew vigorously from the start. The first 5 weeks they vegged along nicely. However, due to the prolonged growing time of the Think Differents, the AutoXtreme didn’t receive the ventilation (wind) they should’ve gotten to grow the biggest as we could get them. So the stems were a little bit on the thin side of the spectrum, but nevertheless they would grow out the way Dutch Passion informed us: big, strong, plentiful and resinous.
The genetics of this super autofem are strong to say the least. They had to endure several weeks of ongoing Xtreme high temperatures. It became clear they are very resistant to these high temperatures (because of its sativa background), sometimes even exceeding 45 °C. Once we took the Think Different down, the fans were adjusted to suit the AutoXtremes. Boy did they love it!
The internode spacing was very good in this strain. They grew big, long cola’s that got completely filled with sticky buds. When they were done stretching, the average height was about 130 cm. With the smallest being a good 85cm high. At this point we could clearly distinguish 3 phenotypes: a hazy one, a true AutoXtreme and a more ruderalis-type pheno.
All of the types of AutoXtreme had very lush resin production. It was clear this was a strain that will get you high, believe me! They flowered for a good 6 weeks, so a bit shorter than the ‘extended’ Think Different. Total time from seed to harvest was about 11 weeks. Because of the intense sunshine, the long daytime hours, they - believe it or not- finished very fast. And because of the low humidity, we had zero mold in this strains. The cola’s were big, long, pointy and Xtremely white! We let them have their second flowering before we cut them down.
At the beginning of the grow, the AutoXtreme were invaded by spider mites. *RED ALERT!* … or so you would think. Even though the conditions were excellent for the spider mites to thrive in (hot and dry), the AutoXtreme just scared them away with her vigorous growth. I’m saying they outgrew the invaders and were simply too fast and too big for them to handle.
The scent of the AutoXtreme buds in the flowering stage was that of fresh mint and citrus fruit. It developed into a musky, skunky, sweet & spicy floral scent. This smell may certainly qualify as DANK!
We harvested them the 15th of August; 11 weeks after sowing on the 21st of May. They were fully ripe and ready to go. We chopped them down, cut off the branches and hung them upside down with the leaves still on the plant. They ended up on the members’ plate one month later, after a cure of almost 3 weeks. The members who received this strain were very satisfied. AutoXtreme has such an amazing bag appeal!
The average yield from the 7 AutoXtremes was a very decent 160g. The biggest one produced a generous 250g! Not bad for 11 weeks. Very easy to grow strain, great results and amazing smoke!
- Very sativa, except for the ruderalis-pheno. That one has very compact thick and dense buds.
- Crystals are small, but not too small as you would see with a landrace sativa. Very high resin production.
- Very high calyx-leaf ratio
- Again, almost zero 'fluffy' popcorn buds. All buds, even the smaller ones at the bottom were completely covered in resin.
- If you find the right pheno, it will deliver you very nice buds with amazing bag appeal.
- Very DANK, strong sweet and spicy smell. Hints of lemon and fine (unripe) pepper.
- Overall smell is more Skunky-White, Floral, sweet, with Hazelnuts and spices
- The 'AutoXtreme'-pheno (the right mix between the ruderalis and the Outlaw) has a very dank, deep and complex scent. Worth searching for!
- Tastes like it smells. Not really Haze in the taste. More like an exceptional Skunk, with hints of sweet flowers. Very smooth and complex.
- The effect is really really really good! Heady and up, but when left to ripen fully, it is a powerful high that sits behind your eyes and can leave you sitting on the couch, staring at infinity for hours. A little rushy feeling at first, but mounts out in a stable high. Very good for people who are used to good quality coffeeshop Cannabis. Red eyes, and a buzzing head and if you smoke too much, you WILL fall asleep very, very fast.
Very easy strain to grow. We've harvested around day 80, when 2nd flowering was coming to an end and I felt maybe she could have gone on for about one week. However, as this strain is also one that molds easily in a humid climate, you should be careful and check every day for mold. We didn't get any mold in the buds, not even the densest ones. With the RH in check (<40%) mold most certainly won't be a problem. No hermaphrodites are to be found in this strain.
