A strain that comes with the name Aurora evokes the thoughts of a sight so beautiful. Witnessing the spectacular light show in the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres must be exhilarating. As such, some people may think that the Aurora Indica can cause hallucinations or psychedelic effects.
Far from it, as this strain is 90% Indica, its effects are more on the body. Its primary use is more geared towards those who want to relax and sleep afterward.
Aurora Indica comes from a prestigious line that includes the Northern Lights and Afghani. Both of these strains are among the most recognizable and popular strains in the world. Also, both strains were used by breeders to produce many more hybrids.
For a reputable breeder like Nirvana Seeds, they do not cross two or more strains to see what happens. In a sense, if there is madness, then there is a method to madness itself. What we are saying is that these breeders deliberately grow new hybrids with a niche market in mind. For that to happen, they have to focus on specific traits. As such, many hybrids combine the best traits of their parents.
The Aurora Indica, as its name implies, is a heavy Indica hybrid. Both its parents are known for potent sedating body high. But unlike them, this new strain does not come with the same potency. But keep in mind that it is still powerful enough to overwhelm unsuspecting users. As it is, this strain is still considered as very potent.

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 well in colder climates, however due to the density of the biomass from her buds, be vigilant of mould late into the flowering stage.

Aurora Indica Flowering Time
This marijuana plant starts to flower in about 9 to 11 weeks. Once ready, each square meter can produce 10 to 14 ounces of buds.
So as long as the plant is kept in a warm and sunny spot, it starts flowering by the end of September or the first week of October. It does not emit a pungent odor, and because it grows short, it may not be detected from the streets. This is nice to know if in case privacy is an issue. At any rate, once it reaches maturity, each plant can have a yield of 14 ounces.
Aurora Indica is a very easy to grow strain, short flowering hybrid with a low profile, and through the roof potency. A heavy hitter and one that we recommend for night times only or for smokers with a high tolerance.
