Northern Lights plants are best known for their shorter flowering time, generally around 8 weeks and ease of growing due to their highly resistant nature. With a moderate plant height of between 100-150cm and solid yields of between 400-500 g/m2, this is a variety that lends itself to new and experienced growers alike. Northern Lights will respond very well to LST should space be an issue, but if left to its own devices outside this hardy variety has been known to grow to tree like proportions. Growers should be aware that because this is the regular version of the strain your seeds are likely to produce around 50% male plants. Make sure you keep a close eye on this because if you are growing for bud you will need to take any male plants out of your grow room before they start to polinate the rest of your crop.
If true beauty lies in the eye of the beholder then chances are this is what they’re holding. The emerald green, crystalline buds radiate light and closer inspection will reveal delicate streaks of purple and blue.

Northern Lights is a classic for a reason, with the ability to lull smokers into a dreamlike state of calm and serenity, all while enjoying its soft balanced flavour and sweet aroma. Growers will be equally rewarded by plants that are easy to grow and provide an abundant, high quality harvest. All things considered it is hard not to recommend Northern Lights to anyone looking for a blissful indica weed.
Beginning slowly with soft subtle tastes of earthy pine upon inhaling, Northern lights smoothly transitions to a much sweeter more citrus like flavour on the exhale. This fine balance provides a sought after smoking experience that not many other strains can offer.
