Northern Lights from Nirvana

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, very quick onset.

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 hard crystal candy, but not because of compression, because of natural density. This stuff is rock hard and oozing with resin. All of the fan leaves had resin beside a few really big leaves.

The plant grows many shoots, at least the pheno I got, and I needed a way to tie up the buds so they could support their own weight.

This plant stinks of odor, and is not recomended for stealth growing. BTW SweetTooth#3 is virtually odor free.

The plant grew easily from seed, like other Nirvana strains

This was my second grow a few years back, my first grow using breeder seeds.

Germination rates were good and i recieved 2 out of 2 females. both were very hardy growers during veg. I was pretty much shocked that i had recieved 2 totally different phenos in the same pck of seeds, i mean completely different.

INDICA-
One was a very hardy indica that grew short and thick, the stem was as thick as a pencil when it was about 5 inches tall. She was an easy plant to grow and was what i had expected from a northern lights plant, minimal smell, hardy squat bush with dark green leaves almost turning black on my clone during veg.

She went into flowering very quick and didnt stretch too much, starting packing on weight quicker than i have seen any other plant so i knew she would finish up real fast. I picked her around day 50 or so and i was surprised on the density of the bud structure, real nice chunky nuggs that were VERY easy to trim. Just cut off the big fans and there you go, all the other leaves were so frosted that they were left on. Its no wonder why NL is so popular it gets frosty, dense, large yield and finishes quick perfect for begginers or commercial growers.

After a nice long cure and i mean long like 2 months the smell was perfect IMO, very grape and sweet. From what ive heard BOG got his grape pheno he uses from NL heritage so if your growing it out wish for the grape pheno. The second round from clone went about 57 days and the grape aroma was not as strong as the first that went 50.

Smoking the NL was not incredible or anything, better appearance than effect or taste. To be honest the taste was kindof lacking. The high was pretty balanced leaning slightly to the couchlock side, still not as couchlock as i had expected.

SKUNK- The other pheno i aquired from the same pack of NLPI was infact not indica at all but more sativa in almost every aspect. I would guess its genetics come from the male breeder plant Nirvana uses to cross with. Anyhow still a nice plant with a nice coffee smell and thin leaves.

During flower it didnt stretch as much as expected, very loose compared to the indica with nice swollen calxys, tall bud structure, good yield a good surprise to find in a indica pack of seeds.

After curing the skunk pheno i was surprised that the coffee smell had faded away and turned rather lemony. Smoking the skunk was a pure treat the buds smoked so smooth with a subtle lemon hint.

The high was pretty uplifting and clear with just a hint of body, good weed when doing activities. Needless to say it was smoked up way before the indica was, but inturn the indica had a very slow cure that it really needed.

Some pictures are clones from the second round. Skunk pheno first.

The first picture was inverted using paint shop and i looked at it and was like.. Wow its the cannabis god, and look the buds are praying to him.

This was my first grow and under a 70w HPS light in a stealth cabinet 1'7"w X 4'h. It grew very vigorous in veg. and was a nice, average sized bush with lots of dark green, healthy leaves.

My end harvest after a 40 day veg, and 57 day flower was 38.2g. I highly suggest it for the beginner, or stealth grower due to the low smell, and ease of growing..

Great all around strain and was a joy too grow!

Odor Description: Skunky
Taste: Smooth but 'heavy' smoke
Garden Style for This Report: Bush
September, 2003

Grown from seed, of 8 ended up with 2 females & kept 1 very vigorous male for breeding.

Vegged for 4 weeks, 1 grown bush style, 1 'tied and trained' smokinrav style.
*Very* Indica dominated with large fan leaves bigger than my hand! I did not experience any sativa pheno as some others have encountered.

The un-topped plant was flowered for 52 days and the tied plant at 56 days. Yield was 38 & 42 grams respectively.

A very easy strain to grow & clone, growth was vigorous & healthy. The untrained plant was quite a beauty with all of the stems/colas 'bunching' up to the central cola, we dubbed her "The Baseball Bat"

The smoke was smooth but 'heavy', a real body stone. Not such a great stone if you have important business to conduct but perfect for just chilling out to at the end of a long day :) A couple of my friends who use medicinally had only good things to say.

Appearance of the final product (dried 2 weeks & cured 3) is excellent, it looks and smells great, nicely covered with crystals & dense as well as a decent 'body' stone. We've since chosen Northern Lights as one (of two) of our 'commercial' strains.

Recommended to new & commercial growers or for those desiring an Indica dominated plant, easy to grow, early maturation, good appearance & a decent stone.

Started 7 seeds: 5 girls, two boys.
Only kept in veg about two weeks under 400MH
Put in one gallon containers with ProMix blend:
50% Promx./perlite-vermiculite-dolomite lime.
Very easy to grow. Had 4 very similar plants with one
weird bean-pole plant.
All the plants produced dense, thickly, chrystallized buds.
The bean pole's buds were much thinner,
but potent. This cannot be a pure indica as claimed, but I don't care--these seeds grow good pot.
I was pleasantly surprised by this plant, based on the Strain guide
reviews I read before I grew what turned out to be a very nice plant.
I'm going to order more seeds asap and make room in my garden for
another grow of this.

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.
