Thats an excellent question, from what I see its strain being bred to be an auto and may or may not have made it. I look at it like this, I dont want a great cut of meat coming out of a microwave, I want cooking it to be an event I enjoy as much as eating it. Same with growing weed, for me its the journey of growing as much or maybe more than consuming it.
I think thats the part about autos I dont get, flowering time seems to be the same for photo's and autos so whats the big deal? Pop a photoperiod, let it grow for 4 weeks and then flip to 12/12 and save 30% on the light bill.
