  Breeder's Description - 'Northern Lights'
Northern Lights is highly adapted to indoor growing. Nearly all promising modern indoor strains contain NL genes. High flower to leaf ratio, compact buds, good yields and exceptional resin production are all characteristics displayed by this wonderful plant. Northern Lights is a most lucrative plant for the indoor grower. The smoke is full bodied yet somewhat neutral in flavour.

Northern Lights is always a great smoke, nice and relaxed, low paranoia, sweet smell and taste; you can't go wrong with Northern Lights.

Northern Lights is a forgiving plant and great for the newbie grower. It can take its fair share of abuse. The high is a couchlock and hits you in about 5 min,

I grew a single Nirvana NLPI from a clone of a mother that I started from seeds from seedsdirect.

I used hydro and 400 watts and got near 4 oz off of the one plant. Like any bud I would give it a few days to dry and at least 2 weeks to cure in glass jars before tasting it. And then it is rock ha

Nirvana's version on Northern Lights is an absolute pleasure to grow.
Great for begginers as well as pros, as is has great potential.

I germinated 10 seeds all sprouted and I got 8 females.
Odor definitely skunk, with a piney taste.

Planted 4 Nirvana NL beans in Scotts Seed starting soil & perlite mix 70/30 in 4" pots on 4/8/04. 3 of the 4 sprouted by 4/11/04. I had some beginner problems of over watering. Week 3 I transplanted to 6" pots with Scotts Potting Soil (0-0.01-0) Perlite 60/40 mix. I also added 1Tbsp Blood Meal (12-0-0) 1 Tbsp Kelp meal (1-0-2) 1Tsp Bone Meal (1-11-0) 1 Tsp Epsom salts. I also watered at this time with Alaska Fish (5-1-1) big mistake as it caused some nute burn. I continued in vegetation growth for 40 days. Plants were ~ 12" tall and showing pre-sex signs. Had 2 females & 1 male, killed him.

Of the 2 females 1 was a mutant. It had leaf deformities on the fan leaves on 1 side.
I transplanted to 12" pots with Scotts potting soil , Perlite 60/40. I also added 2 oz of Alaska Dry Fish ( 3-8-5). I watered at this time with Alaska Fish (5-1-1) and switched lights to 12/12. Flowered the mutant for 56 days & the other 1 for 63 days. Finished at ~ 30-36". Dried 5 days. Cured 1 week at present time.

Overall for the price of the seed and ease of growing you can't go wrong. Although it seems to take longer than what the breeder says to finish. Would grow again. Everyone likes the smoke.

I had zero problems for the seedling and veg phase. I got 3 females out of six seeds. All phenos were very similar in growth. They stayed relatively short, and were sent into 12/12 at 14 inches. They ended up tripling in size.

In Flower I used a used 400watt MH. Same as in veg. The yield

Germinated 7 seeds, 5 popped, germed in Rockwool cubes, under a CFL for a week.

Using conditions that supposedly would enhance female ratio, MH in veg state, cool temps, high humidity and misting with water spiked with GH micro, I ended up with 3 females, I killed off the runt of the two.

Another must for the indoor grower!

northern lights is a great strain for your closed grow.
it has a very low smell but a nice smoke with a fruity-sweet citrus taste .
The taste is nothing special but the smoke is very smooth.
The high comes fast but its still clear and paranoia free.
