Step 3: Create the ideal environment

Northern Lights thrives in warm, sunny climates, with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit. When exposed to colder temperatures, the leaves and buds of this variety may display dramatic hues of blue and purple. This variety should not be exposed to temperatures below 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 5: Feed your plants

Northern Lights thrives when fed an ample and diverse supply of nutrients. During the vegetative growth period, this strain tends to require larger amounts of nitrogen. During the flowering period, it requires more phosphorous and potassium. In addition to nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium, Northern Lights requires smaller amounts of calcium, magnesium, and sulfur. It also requires trace amounts of boron, copper, iron, manganese, and zinc for optimum plant health.
