Hi wazaa, thanks for the question and comment. wow you're very fortunate to live in such a lovely tropical place, with the mild weather you should be able to grow weed all year round! I wouldn't recommend you to go for autoflowering seeds though. There's really no advantage to them in your part of the world. That's because in Mauritius the natural photoperiod (daylight hours) is roughly 12/12 all year round, give or take a bit. That means that outdoor cannabis plants will flower at any time of the year, unlike here in Europe or in the USA, where we have to wait till late summer/autumn to flower our plants. Autoflowering genetics are a response to this situation, enabling us northern growers to flower plants all year round, but one that is not necessary for you, so I'd highly recommend you to grow something non-auto, which also means that you will have a lot more high-quality options to choose from and will harvest better quality weed. From what I understand, it gets quite humid there during summer, so I'd stay away from Indica genetics because their dense flowers can cause mold issues. Your best bet is to select some long-flowering tropical Sativa genetics that have evolved to grow at your latitude. Landrace varieties from Colombia, Thailand, Panama, Mexico, Malawi are the kind of things that will thrive in your environment. Seed banks of good reputation like ACE Seeds and Cannabiogen are probably the best sources for these tropical genetics. Now, after all that, unfortunately we are unable to ship to Mauritius, but we can ship to Reunión Island, if that's any use to you at all. I know it's relatively close by. Sorry about that. Best wishes, good luck and happy growing!
