According to the legend, it was an exclusive Indica plant from Afghanistan, although some of the original eleven plants were said to contain Thai genetics. Today we bring you our feminized Northern Lights which is still an indica dominant hybrid, but carries a lot of sativa in its leaf structure.
Our Northern Lights Feminized will grow as high as 1.2 m tall indoors, but it will stretch to over 2 m tall outside. It will produce relatively wider internode spacing, with long thin leafs, demonstrating its sativa background. Upon flowering is when its Afghan heritage comes to life, with dense, resin-covered nuggets which form all over the plant; however, it will produce a giant main cola.
Around 1.2 meter indoor and over 2 meters outdoor
When it comes to strains that have laid down their mark on the cannabis plant genetics that are around today, there are few names that can be mentioned as often as Northern Lights. The exact makeup of the Northern Lights heritage is thought to have come out of west coast America, originally from eleven different seeds. Each of these varieties have been bred, inbred and hybridised so much over the years that the exact genetic remains a mystery. However, one thing that is certain is that Northern Lights has been the basis for many of the award-winning classics in the history of cannabis.
It will yield on average 50-60 g per plant, or about 500 g per square metre under a 600w light. Grown outdoors, it can give as much as 625 g per plant, but will need the nice warm environment of southern Spain, California or North Africa. Placed in full sunlight and given enough food and water, Northern Lights will grow into a tree and give excellent results for yield.
Flowering is complete after 8-9 weeks, During the flowering process, all buds are formed with a light, resin-covered surface which starts to glow towards the end of the grow.
Soon after establishing itself in the Holland growing scene, Northern Lights became the standard for indoor cannabis cultivation. Its influence spread worldwide as it went on to become one of the foundations of modern cannabis breeding. In recent years, different growing and breeding techniques have resulted in Northern Lights variants that harness the best attributes of this legend, while adding something unique to the equation. Royal Queen Seeds’ Northern Light Automatic is a perfect mix of new and old.
Being both autoflowering and feminized, Northern Light Automatic is a versatile strain that is as perfect for discreet indoor growers as it is for high-volume home-growers outdoors. After a brief vegetative phase, this strain begins producing an abundance of flowers, finishing its entire life cycle in 10–12 weeks after planting the seed.
Insane yields for an auto
Northern Light Automatic provides a generous harvest and might be one of the highest-yielding autoflowering strains available. Growing to a height of around 90–120cm, it is quite a large plant for an auto, which explains its yields of up to 200g/plant outdoors and a whopping 550g/m² indoors.
Much like the original Northern Lights, our Northern Light Automatic has a nice, sweet taste and a comfortable physical effect accompanied by cerebral stimulation. It’s the same classic strain, just with an autoflowering twist—which also makes it a great strain for medical users.
