This weeks Seedstockers grow review shows some outstanding results from Northern Lights Autoflower seeds, which were grown indoors under LED.
What makes this result so impressive is the massive size of the buds, and the high harvest potential.
The plants were grown in soil using 15 litre air pots and LED grow lights. Combining air pots, LED and premium quality autoflower seed genetics is a proven recipe for success.
These genetics are fully proven, and the Seedstocker Northern Lights selection is an established winner.
Under optimum conditions you can expect to get several hundred grams of THC rich cannabis from each plant.
The buds are dense and solid, and each bloom can easily measure 50cm in length especially under intense light conditions.
Normally you can expect to get an Xmas tree structure, one dominant and tall central bloom surrounded by a ring of slightly smaller blooms.
The original grow diary is here on the autoflower network.
Northern Lights has won countless awards and trophies over the years, and the genetics have been used extensively for hybridisation with other genetics too.
But the Seedstockers Northern Lights uses pure autoflower genetics for an authentic Northern Lights experience.
THC levels are around or above 20% with clear indica influences. You can expect a fast acting variety with a strong body stone and good physical effects – useful for medical growers.
Many medical marijuana growers find indica genetics offer good pain relief and symptom control and the pleasant physical effects are complemented by a supremely enjoyable and hard hitting high.
Within a few minutes of vaping/smoking this variety you feel very high, with a lightened mood and often a very strong appetite.
Smoke too much in the evening and you can feel very tired. For some people, the sleepy effects of Northern Lights Autoflower are very desirable and can help those that struggle with insomnia.
These genetics have a wide growing latitude, this means they are easy to grow under a wide range of conditions.
The plants shown in this weeks pictures were grown in air pots of soil, but you can expect even larger results and faster growth when grown in coco fibre or hydroponics.
The plants are not fussy or difficult to grow. The preferred grow cycle is 20 hours of light followed by 4 hours of darkness.
The plants grow vegetively for the first 25 days or so, and usually start to bloom at around day 25.
Use powerful HPS or LED grow lights to maximise the growth rates and the final harvest quantities.
This variety responds very well to intense light conditions especially during the last 5-6 weeks of growth.
Some people use side lighting with great effect on this variety.
Remember that the genetics are capable of explosive bud production.
The skilled and experienced grower will be rewarded if the nutrient conditions are optimised and if lighting intensity is maximised.
The main mistakes, especially from less experienced soil growers, are over-watering the seeds and over-feeding them.
Try to get experience of assessing the weight of the plant container when dry and wet, and only water when necessary.
Avoid feeding over-concentrated nutrients to your autoflower plants, if seedlings are ‘burnt’ by strong nutrients the final harvest quality and quantity will be affected.
Seedstocker autoflower seeds need little nutrition initially, try starting nutrients at low concentrations and gradually increase.
If you sense that the plants are being over-fed, flush with water, and reduce nutrient concentration in subsequent feeds. A
s the pictures from this weeks grow illustrate, the final harvest potential from Northern Lights autoflower seeds is huge.
It’s an ideal autoflower seed for indoor marijuana growers.
This variety also does well outdoors, usually taking around 100 days from seed to harvest.
Note that both indoor and outdoor cannabis growers will occasionally find heavy yielding phenotypes which require an extra week or two.
These are well worth waiting for.
If you are looking for reliably heavy yields, high THC levels and an uncomplicated grow then try Northern Lights Autoflower from Seedstockers.
It’s one of the best selling autoflower seeds for good reasons and one of the most reliable genetic lines for home growers.
On the other hand, Northern Lights Feminized seeds also are a good option.
