The original Northern Lights genotype has been famous for decades as the source of industry-changing strains and individuals such as NL#1, NL#2 and NL#5, as well as crucial hybrids such as NL 5x2, Shiva Skunk, Hash Plant, Silver Pearl and Northern Lights #5 x Haze. Northern Lights Automatic has been bred from the same rock-solid gene pool, blending NL#5 and NL#2 with our best feminised auto-flowering Indica, back-crossing with the NL parents.
Like most of her family, Northern Lights Automatic is usually grown indoors, under lights, though this strain can also perform very well outdoors in a warm, sunny Mediterranean climate. Indoors or out, NL Automatic can progress from germination to harvest in as little as 11 weeks!
Flowering typically begins 20 to 30 days after seedlings emerge from the soil, regardless of photoperiod, and NL Auto’s blooming phase is complete within 50 to 60 days. Indoor growers who give a more hours of light per day (say, 18 hours instead of 14) may see the flowering cycle completed slightly faster, but the difference is usually negligible. Northern Lights Automatic normally attain a height of 60-90cm by harvest time.
Northern Lights Automatic continues the traditions of her classic ancestors; she produces fast, solid harvests with surprisingly little growing-odour. Nevertheless, her buds are sweetly fragrant and, due to their thick coating of THC-rich trichomes, remarkably powerful!
