Growing Northern Lights x Big Bud Autoflower Seeds
Indoors or outdoors, Northern Lights x Big Bud Autoflower is a delight to cultivate, due to the excellent genetics she’s inherited from both of her parent strains. She’s a plant that’s simple enough for beginners looking to develop their skills, and experienced growers will love how hassle-free this herb is.
Since this version of the plant is autoflowering, she’s even more straightforward and quick growing than her parents, and resistant to more pests, mold and common diseases that target cannabis plants.
Her branches are even and tubular, and she’s considerably taller than many other auto strains, with a top end height of 150 centimeters. As such, she’s a higher yielder than other autos too, with huge nugs that are densely coated in a blanket of glittering trichomes. These buds are particularly pungent and turn a gorgeous shade of purple towards the end of their flowering period.
Indoors, Northern Lights x Big Bud Auto will probably reach about 130 centimeters in her short life cycle, which in total is between 11 and 13 weeks from germination to harvest.
Grow these plants in a hydroponics setup and utilize the Sea of Green (SOG) setup before she starts flowering (at around 7 or 8 weeks) to really maximize your harvests. In a controlled environment kept at optimum temperatures and humidity, these beauties should yield around 600 grams of nugs per square meter.
Choose to rear this lady out of doors, then opt for a sunny, Meditteranean climate or similar. In the northern hemisphere, you can start to plant these autoflowering seeds as soon as the last of the winter frost has gone, and we’d recommend sowing another batch as the first begins to flower to harvest her twice a year.
Final harvests should be no later than October, and in ideal conditions you should find yourself with up to 100 grams of resinous buds per plant.
