    I have read that Northern Lights is good for beginners, but from experience it is not. What fast growing sativa strains would you recommend?
  2. for beginners? Stick with Indicas as they are much easier to grow. You must learn to walk before you run, young skywalker.

    Trainwreck is a mostly sativa dominate strain.With a decent flowering time and height.I have never grown but i have seeds.Another is Cindy 99.What you need to look out for with sativas is the HEIGHT and flowering time.

    Sativas are honestly not that easy to grow. A lot of growers have trouble keeping plants healthy for the normal 60 day flowering period, just imagine how crappy a plant would look after 90 days. If you're looking for a 'sativa' effect but don't want to deal with a 12 week flowering period, checkout AK47 from Serious Seeds. My pheno finishes between 60-65 days and yields a potently energetic high that doesn't weigh you down. Cindy 99 is another one that comes to mind as well and I know there are plenty of other sativa dominant hybrids out there.

    I think I might go with Low Ryder. As someone said to me before, I must learn to walk before I can run. =D

    This is true I grew White Russian from Serious Seeds Co and they are a hybrid of white widow and ak-47. Very forgiving plant and easy to grow the high is pretty cerebral like you said and it doesnt weigh you down.

    Trainwreck, while being a good smoke when it finishes correctly is a total pain in the ass to clone and the veg time is tremendous (upwards of 12 - 14 weeks). I have serveral strains and after growing in several different setups I have kicked it to the curb.

    AK-47 or 48 are good sativa hybrids that grow great in my rooms. But there aren't any pure sativas I would recommend to a new grower.

    Why is Trainwreck so hard to clone is their a long period for cloning?Also on the veg time how tall are you getting them in the 12-14 weeks?I only give my clones a week if that of veg time.This last round i sent them straight from the cloner to the flowering room.But i have a height challenged space.Any info is appreciated as i said i have the seeds, thanks for the heads up.

    I dont know, but i agree. I had 1 plant my last grow and desperately tried to clone her multiple times multiple ways all with no success. I had to quit at some point cause i didnt want to lose anymore future buds. other than that the plant was easy, no real issues and a tasty smoke. I wouldnt mind growing it again...

    Try an easier to grow indica. Dont go straight into autoflowers. Keep sativas for outdoor.

    The clone time for me using two different gels (dutch master and clonex) has been around 2.5weeks for a decent root mass and another 9 weeks for it to reach around 20inches. I will admit I have alot of space to work with so I like to use bigger plants. Compared to my average indica (strawberry cough or ak-48) that is way longer. But ther is another GH plant (church) that is just as hard and even harder to clone and get to grow to a decent flowering height.
