  Breeder's Description - 'Afghan'
Originally this strain was imported from Afghanistan and selectively bred in Holland for indoor cultivation. Afghan has a strong acrid aroma. Greasy resin glands extend to the fat shade leaves. The smoke is heavy with a strong almost numbing buzz if raised and cured properly. This plant has a high flower to leaf ratio and good yield. Afghan is one of the original genetic lines used in many popular modern day hybrids.

This strain produces quite nicely, especially in a SCROG application... I would recommend it to anyone wanting an easy to grow, nice yielding plant.

Very good strain. Pretty much easy to grow. I didn't use much fert throughout the grow and the plant seemed to cope. After drying and harvesting for one week then curing for another week the buds were strong and sweet. After a few months they were very, very strong! The longer the better in my case! ...continued

This was excellent weed, short, squatty, easy to grow plants. Smell was strong and pungent, taste was amazing. The plant do not appear to be very remarkable at first, look like bagseed, but they behave very well indoors and usually show sex at approx 4-5 internodes. I have never had a herm and I ...continued

Very easy plant to grow in soil. didn't like hydro nearly as much as other varieties(sensitive to overfert).

Hashy taste without the cough. Too much couchlock for me but my wife just loved it! Mould resistant and not as tough as other indicas to clone. Very vigourous growth.

Of 12 seeds, I had one that was female. I grew it outside in FULL sun, in Central Ontario, Canada.
Big dark fan leaves were classic of this original Indica strain.

Beautiful full buds, (mine had purple flowers from the lower temperature outside)
I grew with organic ferts, not much at that, an

Seedlings were germinated using the damp paper towel and ziplock bag method. I placed the bag on top of my computer monitor and 9 seedlings had cracked within 3 days. 1 seed failed to germinate. 1 seedling died before reaching a few days old.

I finally dug up my old pics of my first grow. It was Afghan from Nirvana. I of course was a noob, and this is what I did. Started 2 seeds in paper towel and got 100% germ. Went on to using a lava lamp light bulb for the first week of veg. Needless to say I didn't get much growth. Then moved on to my friends house and used 2 old old OLD 40 watt fluoros, without reflectors, so I really had about 30 watts max of actual light reaching them.

They vegged slowly of course, and my friend was on water duty, I knew how to water properly, and instructed him, but of course he wanted the best looking one to grow the fastest, and over watered it, causing death.

So I was down to 1 plant, unknown sex. It vegged for 5 weeks under 30 watts, had its share of trouble, and grew slowly and unhealthily.

Then came time when we saved enough money to buy our 70 watt hps from home depot. Moved it back to the parents house and set up a nice little flower chamber. Those pics are gone for good, they were uploaded on the cannabis.com forums, but were deleted. Once flowering starter, it took off. with the proper light and temperature and all that, it grew very fast and vigorous. Thank god it turned out female about a week in. Now that she was doubled in size in nearly 2 weeks, the leaves were a dark beautiful green, healthy and strong, always at a 45 degree angle. As a noob I didn't use a timer, so flowering time was lengthened by light stress. I also ended up with some male bananas, which in turn helped me learn the capability of female seeds first hand.

I yielded 60 grams out of the fresh 70 watt hps and 2 40 watt brand new fluoros, it took more time then usual, but eventually it got there.

This plant was very resistant to abuse. Wrong lights, low wattage, neglect, over watering, and no veg nutes at all. Only used liquid bloom high P fertz 3 week of flowering, and stopped after the 5th.
Afghan made such a comeback that I recommend this as one of the best first time grows, even without the help of OG I made it okay.

On another note, some of my dried weed was in a RubberMaid from the attic (it had mites in it somehow) ended up getting eaten from the inside out, and I lost roughly half of that 60 gram yield to them. made some hash tho.*shivers* Great strain, good job Nirvana.
