Nirvana Northern Lights is fairly forgiving. It was my first plant and it came out great even after I almost killed it several times.

agreed.. indicas and regular seeds. IMO, stear clear of the femmed and autos for your initial grow. They are more expensive and are more likely to experience problems.
Northern lights has been very reputable for years, as a good choice for newbs..:D
good luck

Indicas are my all-time fav for closet (as well as outdoors).NL are awsome first timer strain.You can neglect them and they will always love you.They are most resistant to many indoor problems.Sativas imo,are like trying to get your pet bird off a wire...your standing around all day trying to coax it to do what you want it to do (even feeding won't get the job done:)Just remember to be patient,do not over feed/over water or harvest to early (or to late).Pay attention,your girls will let you know what they need.Over time you will be more receptive to them and in a sense "communicate" with eachother :)
Stay Cool

Big Bud is very easy to grow and will give you a big harvest, even if you neglect it.

No offense meant by this but...this may be true if you want a BIG yeild of Mediocre buds

I'd rather have an average yeild of primo! I grew 2 packs of big bud a few yrs back, and was not happy with any of it...if your in it to sell it maybe, but if you want to have some killer I would avoid it. Not one keeper pheno out of 20 seeds IMO.

I'd go with the NL#5...I like Atomics, it's cheap and potent. I also just grew out this C99 x AK47 by Joey Weed, and I think it would be a great one for newbies...it has a low odor, good yeild, killer high...and was very easy to grow. It can take alot of nutes, that I've found newbies like to overuse...lol...

Good Luck to you!

I agree, NL was the first strain I tried and now I know what all the fuss is about.. Its tried and true genetics...

Whatever it is you choose to grow be sure that you don't spend a lot of money on the strain.

Normally, your first grow is a learning experience, as is normally the next couple of grows. Eventually, you will learn enough from DOING IT and will want to spend a pretty penny on something stellar.

You don't want to waste hundreds of dollars on a strain that you could end up killing in the end. Spend as little as possible on a good indica dominate strain. Anything Mandala has is excellent and is easy to grow. AK48 from Nirvana, nirvana Blue Mistic, Big Bud, or any of their indica dominate strains should be okay for you.

Honestly, the main goal of your first grow is to just get to harvest without killing them and harvest SOMETHING.

Start out with something you won't mind killing. Because it could happen.

All of the comments here are top notch... Hick, Legalize and 2 dog are spot on.

I agree, buy low cost seed until you get your method down... Remember Nirvana also breeds NL strain, there are several companies that supply quality genetics at a low price...

May b a stupid question, but is tin foil a bad idea? For example I covered all the sides of a fairly big box with it hoping the foil would reflect the light and make up for the fact I have a weak lamp.

Foil is a very poor reflector of light. And there is nothing that will make up for weak light. FLAT white paint is a far better reflector.

If I was you, I would just use some bag seed for the first grow. This is how many people get their feet wet before spending money on seed.

Yeah, fair enough. I should qualify my statement by saying I always let my girls go past when most people would harvest because I prefer the medical benefits I get from the other cannabinoids besides THC and let my trichs turn just about all amber/red and BB has worked well for this. ymmv if you are looking for THC.

I second (or third) the NL recommendation.

auto flowering is my advice but that is just me they are the most forgiving plants out there and even " police could grow them" :)

I hope I didn't offend you, I just had no luck with the big bud. Everyone has an oppinion, and mine is only mine...I'm not claiming it is better. I'm glad that it worked out for you! I was just saying that it was quantity without quality IME...I'd rather get a little less with more kick....but like I said it's just an oppinion.

The same as Dr Atomic haveing the best NL is my oppinion...I have grown many other NL including Nirvanas, and I happened to like the Atomic best...someone else may like Nirvanas better...it's all oppinion when it comes to converstations like this...so you were not "wrong" in your statement, and I didn't mean it to sound like I thought you were. Your oppinions are as valid as mine!
