Auto Malawi x Northern Lights breeding details
Since 2011 one of our breeders has been reproducing an interesting Auto Northern Lights line, this auto line has been refined and reproduced for many generations in regular and feminized format. The Auto NL produces very small plants of 1 single cola with almost no branching, of aprox half meter size. Super fast flowering, it finishes in aprox 9-10 weeks from germination, producing sweet creamy aromas and resins, with a pleasant narcotic indica effect.
In 2014, we were working on a Malawi fem reproduction and our Old Killer Malawi mother was reversed. A few Auto NL females were pollinated by the Old Killer Malawi reversed. The Auto NL x Old Killer Malawi F1 fem hybrid produced strong, vigorous and high yielding sativa/indica plants as one can expect when crossing Malawi with a stabilized indica. This F1 fem generation did not autoflower, as the autoflowering trait is recessive. The F1 was grown and tested, and a few selected F1 plants were reversed to pollinate other sister F1 females producing a F2 fem generation of the hybrid.
25 % of the F2 generation was autoflowering, the autoflowering trait is recessive but it can be fixed following simple mendelian ratios. The 75 % of the F2 plants were photodependent and were discarded to work only with the 100 % autoflowering plants. A very resinous, short sized and fast flowering F2 autoflowering sativa female was selected and reversed to pollinate other very high yielding, resinous and aromatic F2 sativa/indica autoflowering females, to finally produce the 100 % autoflowering F3 generation that has been released as Auto Malawi x Northern Lights.
