Northern Lights Effects
Northern Lights is one that has been around forever. It revolutionized indoor growing. There probably would not be indoor growing now if it was not for Northern Lights, and I doubt there is a strain on any of these lists that does not have some Northern Lights in it. That is how we got some of the sativas to get down in time. It has been of multiple benefits. Northern Lights is a hybrid of several different indicas with about twenty percent sativa thrown into it. It was done back in the ’80s. It came from the Pacific Northwest, and Seattle, and it was brought to Holland. Northern Lights is one of the easiest ones to grow that there is. You just have to watch your water.
Northern Lights usually averages fifty to sixty days, but can go up to sixty-five days. It is usually better to let it fully mature. It tastes a lot better. It is still comparable with any one of these hybrids being grown today. Northern Lights is usually best if it is grown six to eight feet. I have seen a lot of people see a green-it [SP] and grow them a lot smaller, but it is really hard to get it fully mature that way. Northern Lights is one of those ones that really makes a difference on what you put into it. Usually you should be able to get at least eight ounces indoors with a good full-size Northern Lights plant.
There are a whole bunch of similar strains to Northern Lights right now, and it is one of those ones that is oft-copied, and oft-imitated. Northern Lights is really one of my favorite strains to smoke and grow. I always joke with people now and tell them that I can take old school Northern Lights genetics and contest-grow anybody with their fancy new genetics now, bring it to full maturation, and win contests with it. It is still that good. It is what you put into it.
