Description

Nirvana Short Rider is a hybrid of our discontinued marijuana strains Top 44 and Early Special. Top 44 has long been a trade favorite because of its ability to produce commercially worthwhile amounts of strong, skunky buds in just 44 days of flowering. Even though Early Special itself lacks this characteristic, its Siberian Cannabis Ruderalis genes give Short Rider the unique ability to "autoflower" - to flower independently of light cycles, like lowryder. This means you won't need to maintain a strict lighting schedule for these marijuana seeds - they will flower regardless! These seeds are a must for cannabis growers with limited space or who simply want to finish extra early. The quality of the weed is amazing considering how little time it takes these marijuana seeds to finish.

How To Grow Short Rider Autoflower

1. Germination

Cover your Short Rider Autoflower seeds with a maximum of ¼ inch of soil. Keep the soil damp. Now wait for the seedlings to pop up. For best germination rate, use our Propagator Pro to create the optimum germination conditions, and our Germination Kit to protect your seeds from harmful influences and to stimulate the germination process.

2. Vegetative Stage

To stimulate growth, it is important to accommodate your Short Rider Autoflower seedlings with at least 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness every day. If your climate is suitable, you can choose to replant your Short Rider Autoflower seedlings outdoors. If not, buy yourself some good grow lights and replant your seedlings indoors. Use our Root Xtender for a vigorous and strong root growth, and Root Pouches for a better protection of the roots. Many of our customers use Soiltabs to give their Short Rider Autoflower seeds optimum slow releasing nutrients for the duration of the vegetative stage.

3. Flowering Stage

When growing outdoors, your Short Rider Autoflower plants will start flowering as days get shorter and autumn sets in. Indoors, switch your light cycle over to the flowering cycle of 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness, when your Short Rider Autoflower plants are about half the size desired and then force them to start flowering. Autoflower strains will start flowering automatically, cutting a lot of time from your vegetative stage. Instead of just growing leaves, your plants are also flowering now. For best nutrient solution during the flowering stage, buy yourself some Flowertabs that is specifically formulated to supply slow releasing nutrients for the duration of the flowering stage.

4. Hang to Dry

After harvesting, let your Short Rider Autoflower buds hang to dry for a minimum of 10 days in a dark and enclosed, but ventilated space until the branches crack when you bend them. How long this takes depends on your climate and atmospheric humidity. Then cut the buds, trim the leaves and store the buds in mason jars. Open the jars 2 to 3 times a day for about 15 minutes to prevent mold growth. Stick labels on the jars to remind you of what’s inside.

first thoughts on short rider

First one pulled a lil over 8wks, second at 9wks, last two at 10wks. All are impressively potent. Half a ufo went out, just as they really started flowering, which had to hurt my harvest. They still a most broke an O average( lowest about a half, largest two over) and I was/am very impressed with this strain. Potency is stronger than expected. Its not my still favorite AK-48(Please Nirvana, to whatever deity, if any, you believe in.. Please cross this with AK, Auto AK-44 sounds wet dreamy to me) but this is really good smoke, and will order again soon!

update to the uppity date

First off after I posted the incredibly healthy plants in my last post, things took a temporary detour south. The next week, half my flowering ufo went out. Admittedly there was some negligence on my part, (occupied w/ new gf) and I made some noobie mistakes. Get to how to not do that in a bit.. I dont have a degree to back up the theories and advice that follows, just about 5-6yrs growing hydro(bout 15, total). I still believe that losing half that light changed/lowered they're metabolism, causing most of my problems. At any rate, this was my first auto in hydro experiment. I think I am on the right track with a good regimen to start with, if anybody wants a proven recipe: Start with .5 ml/gal each, 3 part Advanced nutrients, and 1ml/gal Calmag. Exchange half the reservoir every 3-4 days. Every 3-4th water change, do a full water change. When vertical growth appears to slow(by 5th week probably) cut everything but bloom in half, and increment bloom up/down, .25ml/gal at a time, over week to two week basis, depending on how they take it. Still do full water change periodically. Admittedly this isn't perfect yet, but is a good, safe start for anybody to improve on, and not kill their plants with a base recipe.

The vast majority of reviews and how to info on autos revolves around soil grow. These are working beautifully in hydro. I finally managed to kill the bottom most 1-2 leaves on three of four plants, and have "greenhouse burn" tips. Plants still amazingly healthy and robust overall. I now recommend based on this first trial to drop Calmag concentration from 1ml/gal to .5ml/gal at 5-6wks, or when vertical growth appears to slow. Plants will be at 6wks old in 2 days. Nutes currently at: .5ml/gal Advanced Nutes, grow/micro, .75ml/gal bloom, .5ml Calmag. No new burn/deficiency noticed. Almost picture perfect specimens. Easiest hydro grow I think ever. May never go back to photoperiod plants again! Go short rider in hydro, and thank you Nirvana!

I usually don't write reviews until I have a harvest.. but I felt I had to. First time using autos in hydro- great idea! Never seen anything healthier and bigger for their age(5wks). Using .5ml/gal Three part Advanced nutes, plus 1mil/gal Cal mag. Works flawlessly. Adjust ph of course. Slowly increasing bloom now..

Top shelf herb

As usual all 5 popped and grew well. Easy auto to grow as it is a version of lowryder from other breeders. I used from 1 -3 gal pots with about same yield; it is a small auto and no need for huge pots; 2 gal is optimal for Short Ryder. Tight buds, unique flavour and 60 days to harvest make this a no brainer even for an experienced grower. NEVER TRANSPLANT AN AUTOFLOWER PLANT. PLANT IT IN THE 2 GAL POT AND SPARINGLY WATER IT. Nutes once after 30 days in good soil. Foxfarm Cha Ching until harvest. It will grow into a work of art.

Not so Short

Received these on the US East coast within two weeks of placing my order. Germinated one seed to test this strain out and I have to say I am a bit confused by my results compared to the other reviews. I have my plant in a 5 gal air pot under 600 watt HPS light using FFOF soil. The plant went into flower 32 days after germination and kept growing I finally had to tie down the main stem after it reached 4 feet in height. Not very short or even close to what other people were saying they had for a plant height. These plants have been in flower for 73 days and look like they need another two weeks before they finish. How people are saying that these are finished in 55-60 days baffles me. The main cola on this plant is just about 12 inches in length and I can't wait for it to finish.

thick buds

Great big thick buds from this strain. only grew to 3 ft but what a yield. very pungent smelling buds. All seeds popped except one. will grow again for sure. My only negative point is that the 10 free seeds are complete junk. they grew to 10 feet and just never flowered. nirvana please make the free gift seeds better genetics.
