Next, a calendar of temperature and hours of sunshine during the different months of cultivation:

The medium where we grow our NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO is important. First of all, we have to be clear about whether we are going to grow directly in soil or in pots.
If we grow our cannabis seeds in pots, we have no problem since we will use any soil on the market that is already fertilized and with its fertilizers.
Finally, if we cultivate directly on land. We advise conditioning the soil first. Also, remove the surface soil about 10cm and add worm humus to ensure the growth of the plant, red guano or dry bird guano, which you can buy in any garden store, to guarantee a great flowering and trichodermas, beneficial fungus for the protection of the roots and stimulate the macrobiotic life of the soil.
These fungi will be your allies to get robust and high-yielding plants.
In conclusion, our culture medium is very important to obtain fat and large resin buds from our NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO.
Firstly, photoperiod 20/4 is very important for the development of any autoflowering plant. Secondly, at the Outdoor point we reflect how many hours of light our EUROPE-grown plants receive. Finally, outdoors, most autoflowering strains will naturally enter flowering in an automatic way.
When the NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO enter in flowering, need 18 hours of light and 6 of dark
The autoflowering plants in general start the flowering in the 4 or 6 week of life and finish all the process between the 10 to 12 weeks of life.
Firstly, NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO is a quality strain and many growers have confirmed to us that it can be grown perfectly in any region of the EUROPE.
In other words, we are very proud to work hard for great results. Also, it is a plant that grows vigorously when we provide quality nutrients.

The best nutrients for NORTHERN LIGHT AUTO are the organic fert, because when you grow outdoor is better the fert of slow-release.
Finally, we reached the most anticipated point. After a long time of cultivation comes the harvest. Now it’s time to harvest your marijuana, the result of your effort is near.
Firstly, the best time to cut our marijuana plant is when several factors appear.
- Color change of the pistils. Firstly, pistils are born white. However, as harvest time approaches, they change from white to brown.
- Color change of our leaves. Firstly, we will notice how the leaves start to pick up a yellow color. This is due to the lack of nutrients and is a trigger for our marijuana plant to be ready.
- Observe the trichomes. Observing trichomes throughout the plant stage is important. Finally, the change from crystalline to amba color is a big trigger that our marijuana plant is ready to be harvested.
