Nirvana’s Aurora Indica Feminized
Aurora Indica Feminized seeds are straightforward to grow, have short flowering times with a low profile, and through the roof potency. A heavy hitter and one that we recommend for nighttimes only or for smokers with a high tolerance. She is an old school hybrid composed of rock solid and stable lines that go back to the Dutch era of the 1990s.
She remains short and yields rock-hard buds, meaning she is ideal for beginner growers with limited space looking for a fast flowering variety. A wonderful performer in Sea of Green setups where smaller sized plants are grown closely together.
Aurora Indica is a 90% indica dominant hybrid, so be warned it is a real powerhouse when it comes to potency, and is exceptionally resilient to all climates.
Growing Aurora Indica Feminized
By crossing Afghani and Northern Lights together, Aurora Indica inherited the tough resilience and growth structure of her parents. This F1 hybrid will be able to take cold and wet weather meaning she performs impressively in colder climates, however due to the density of the biomass from her buds, be vigilant of mold late into the flowering stage.
Because of her indica dominance, you can expect Aurora Indica to grow with a low profile during the growing phase of 18/6, and when flowered will not stretch much.
Not only does this strain do very well when grown closely together, she is also well recommended for growers with limited height.
Aurora Indica will grow with thick fingered fan leaves with very short internodal spacing and may require some pruning to improve the airflow at the lowest parts of the canopy.
A very reliable strain outdoors that is a great entry-level strain for a beginner grower, who wants the challenge of an indica dominant hybrid.
Her fan leaves outdoors can become large sized and may need removing to help light enter. Once flowering, her main stem becomes massive, and she can take large amounts of nutrients.
In colder climates, the plants will turn purple and produce dark purple buds.
Fungal resistance of Aurora Indica Feminized
Aurora Indica seeds produce very tough and solid performing plants, and thanks to her parental stock, will naturally be resilient to hot and cold weather. Buds can become thick and dense during the final 3 weeks, so check for mold and make sure there is plenty of air around the buds.
when growing Aurora Indica Feminized Indoor
Flowering will take between 9-11 weeks depending on phenotype, and during this time we recommend using a dehumidifier to control the humidity levels indoors.
Aurora Indica will produce extremely compact, resin soaked golf ball sized nugs that when trimmed are all uniform and around 5 cm (2 inches) in size.
We recommend planting Aurora Indica seeds at the start of Spring time, with a harvest date around the middle of October. Depending on where you live, flowering time will vary when grown outdoors.
Yields of 550 g/m² (1,8 oz per square foot) can be harvested when grown closely together in a SOG set up. With hydroponic systems, she is capable of producing even more and is a wise choice for hydroponic farmers.
Outdoors, Aurora Indica is well worth the long flowering time, and can produce 650 grams (22 oz) per plant without training. For the biggest yields outdoors, we recommend keeping plants South-facing.
Plant height & structure
Aurora Indica will grow bushy, uniform plants that require little maintenance, meaning this strain is best suited for Sea of Green setups in comparison to SCROG. On average, plants will grow as tall as 80-100 cm (31-39 inches).
It is a good idea to give the lower canopy a prune before flowering starts. This allows the plants to focus on the remaining canopy, and improve airflow.
Removing large-sized fan leaves that are blocking light may also be necessary with some smaller and more compact phenotypes.
Smell, taste, and effect
Aurora Indica Feminized produce aromas that are very bold and earthy, spiced, dank, and pungent, with overtones of pepper and mixed herbal spices. Fans of old school strains will instantly recognize the distinct profile that brings together earthy, floral and spicy terpenes.
Her flavors are intense and much more spicy, earthy with a touch of gas and burnt rubber. She smells and tastes like she is about to knock you over after a few hits of the bong, and she certainly delivers!
Smoking Aurora Indica will have an immediate effect, thanks to her full-blooded indica nature. A heavy couch locking strain, so recommended for evening use to avoid feeling sleepy all day. Her effects will cause eyelids, arms, and legs to become heavy followed by an urge to eat and then to not want to do much after that.
Aurora Indica is a good choice for chilling out at home with friends, taking it super easy, and making sure that you do not have anything important planned or urgent to take care of!
