  Breeder's Description - 'Northern Bright'
Northern Bright is a hybrid of Northern Lights and Haze. Northern bright produces relatively small leaves and long stretchy buds. The smoke is heavy and the odour is a little bit sour. Northern Bright produces an intense up buzz that is optically pleasing. This strain takes a little longer to finish but is well worth it.

I had a few problems trying to fill out some of the fields mainly because i had such mixed results with the 3 plants that I grew..

2 of 3 plants turned out Sativa dominant which both turned hermie, probably due to the begginers error.
They had very few male flowers but enough to pollinate a good percentage of the grow... The buds were long (some as long as 12 inches) but were very light and fluffy, with few crystals in sight... It also had a cereal type smell and a similar taste.
The high was not much to shout about and I was not very impressed to say the least!
Ease to grow - 9/10... Never had problem with these from start to finish, except for the dreaded male flowers.

As for the other plant that is a different story...

This one turned out Indica dominant. It was an extremly potent smelling plant, that smelled skunky during the veg stage and a fruity type smell during flowering.
This plant needed more attention than the other 2, on 2 occasions it had nute deficiency, but was well worth the extra effort.
The high was couch lock at its best, 2 J's put me in my place.
I am gutted that I didn't clone it! It would be worth buying 10 seeds just to get a mother of this quality.
Ease to grow - 8/10... A few minor nute problems but nothing too serious.

OVERALL WEIGHT = 3-3.5oz / approx. 100 grams
Also I should add both phenos required a lot of manicuring.

Unfortunatly my digicam broke near the end of my grow, so no final harvest pics, sorry.

PHOTO 1 - This is a pic of one of the Sativa buds @ 40 days flowering.

PHOTO 2 - This is a close up of the Indica dom plant @ 35 days flowering.

PHOTO 3 - a not so close up of the indica dominant plant

PHOTO 4 - This shows the difference in size between the 2 phenos; the lower left are the Indica dom buds, and the towering buds behind are the Sativa doms @ approx 35-40 days flowering.

NOTE - This is my 1st succesful grow and I only grew 3 plants, therefore my results should not reflect badly in any way on this strain.

Excellent grow very forgiving much like itís Northern Light parentage. Was growing this strain continuously for at least a year. After experimenting I found at 10/11 weeks the buds are branch benders. You must watch for mold in later stages as buds are that big (good ventilation a must). Responds we ...continued
