The Joint Doctor, the man behind auto-flowering, cooperated with Dutch Passion to create a feminized auto-flowering strain that could hold it's own against the more regular photo-period strains. Taking a few years to complete, the Joint Doctor took a clone of Dutch Passion's Isis and crossed it with his own LowRyder. StarRyder is the end result, 70 percent Indica, 25 percent Sativa and a mere 5 percent Ruderalis. While the latter part of StarRyder's name is an obvious holdover from it's lineage, the "star" comes from the quality and performance of the strain. With a very sweet taste, this strain can provide a wide range of cerebral and physical effects.
Capable of growing outdoors in the right climate the short, 50 centimeters, stature and Christmas tree-like structure make it great for indoor set ups. StarRyder is resilient for an auto-flowering strain, enjoying a generous feeding. Like most auto-flowering strains this one does well with 20 hours of light and four hours of darkness for it's light cycle. It is easy enough to grow for beginners and those with more that a few grows under their belt may find it yielding up to 100 grams per plant in soil or up to 200 grams in a hydro set up. StarRyder's life cycle lasts between ten and 12 weeks, with a THC range of 15 to 19 percent.
