While its two parts could be viewed bigger than its whole, it is a strain that is a must grow at some stage for all level of growers. Northern lights made it into just about everyone's grow room in some form at some time over the passed 30 years as too did Skunk so it would seem poetic justice to give this strain a place in any grower`s room who is interested in the predominant indica side of things.
