Royal Queen Seeds - Northern Light

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.

According to the legend, Northern Lights 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.

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 100 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 7-8 weeks, although some growers report harvesting after just 7 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.

Northern Lights is simply one of those knockout smokes that guarantees a couchlock session for the next few minutes. The Afghan heritage really shines through in the smoke, and anyone looking for that strong stone need seek no further than Northern Lights Feminized.

Die Samen haben eine Keim rate von 7/10 ist ok.Leider sehr unterschiedliche Phänotypen von klein und buschig 50 cm( sehr Harzig ) bis hin zu 1,20 meter Pflanzen ( nicht ganz so harzig) alles dabei. Ist ein Anfänger Gras braucht nicht viel Pflege ist Schimmel resistent. Der Ertrag ist mittelmäßig 35 Gramm pro Pflanze aber extrem leckeres Gras einer meiner Lieblings Sorten. Blütezeit von 59- 69 tagen ! Zwei Mädels haben sich automatisch geteilt sind aber trotzdem sehr gut geworden. Gebrochenen Blähton zur Erde hinzufügen macht was aus ! Sorte ist für den Kommerziellen Grow nicht geeignet aber dafür umso mehr für den Genießer. Gut gegen Spastiken habe Erfahrung da ich selber welche habe.

Eine meiner Lieblingssorten, Geschmacklich wie auch in der Wirkung. Wächst eher wie eine Indica, man kann schöne kompakte Mütter auch aus Samen ziehen.
Sollte sie aber wirklich Ausblühen lassen, sonst verpasst man was...
Für draussen auch in D geeignet, man sollte draussen aber auf Schimmel achten. Bei beschneidung draussen sehr schnell Stammschimmel! Bildet draussen schlechtes Blüte-Blatt verhältnis.
Hatte vorher eine Northern Light von Nirvana, die war subjektiv besser im Geschmack aber sonst kann ich die hier von RQS sehr empfehlen.

Kaum Harzbildung, trotzdem letztlich ganz gute Wirkung. insgesamt nicht wirklich zu empfehlen. Vermute, die Stecklingsmutter war überaltert. Kommt mir nicht mehr ins Sortiment.
