Nirvanas Short Ryder Description

Nirvana Seeds Short Ryder Short Rider is a hybrid of our discontinued strains Top 44 and Early Special. Top 44 has long been a trade favourite because of its ability to produce commercially worthwhile amounts of strong, skunky buds in just 44 days of flowering. Even though Early Special itself lacks this characteristic, its Siberian Ruderalis genes give Short Rider the unique ability to "autoflower" - to flower independently of light cycles. This means you won't need to maintain a strict lighting schedule for this strain - it will flower regardless! Short Rider is a must for growers with limited space or who simply want to finish extra early. The quality is amazing considering how little time it takes to finish.

Height: short
Effect: Stoned - relaxing
Flowering weeks: 8 / 9 weeks
Yield (S.O.G.): 450 to 550g

Great for first timers and impatient jonesers; started 5 in small pots for first two weeks in EM soil under 3 X 22w CFLs 24/7 , moved to 7 liter pots in organic soil/perlite outside on deck (about 6 hours of direct sunlight a day). Just used molasses/water after that. Quick finish, pulled some at 75 days from seed. The rest I let go for another 15-21 more days and it increased the couch-lock effect. Averaged 6g dried a plant. this comment
