Created by Dutch Passion, Taiga is an auto-flowering hybrid designed to have a short life cycle. To achieve this effect, the breeders chose a plant from their strain Power Plant, they specifically chose an early flowering plant. This mother was then crossed with a Ruderalis/Indica hybrid whose genetics come from Russia and Canada. Retaining the balanced cerebral and bodily effects of it's mother, this strain is often described as relaxing and mood elevating. It's physical effects may help relieve pain and nausea, without incapacitating patients. Similar to Power Plant, Taiga tastes spicy-sweet, hints of nuts, sandalwood and hash all encompassed by a sweet flowery rose flavor.
As with any auto-flowering strain, Taiga does not do well on a 12/12 light cycle, this can actually stress the plant. Instead, auto-flowering plants should be on 20 hours of light followed by four hours of darkness. Even so, this strain can be grown well outdoors in the right climate. Rarely taking longer than 63 days from being sown till harvest time, Taiga can finish flowering in as little as 45 days. Though there is a Sativa dominant phenotype of Taiga, most will be Indica dominant and rarely break 60 centimeters in height. Taiga typically produces 25 to 30 grams per plant but is extremely easy to grow, requiring little attention.
