NL5 x Afghan is a 75% blend of different Afghani land-race strains with 25% Skunk. The result is a compact plant with fast-flowering, strength and fruity flavours. Its dense buds can be susceptible to mould so keep a watchful eye near harvest time.
NL5 x Afghan has a flowering time of 7 - 9 weeks indoors with expected yields in the region of 500 - 750 gr/m2 under 600 watt lights. The length of flowering will depend on the grow set-up and also whether grown from cuttings or seed with seed taking a bit longer usually. Outdoors in the northern hemisphere expect harvest in mid-October which rues out much of northern Europe as the weather will not usually be good enough with rain and humidity being problematic. Greenhouse cultivation would be a better idea but be sure to keep good air circulation to avoid those mould problems from ruining the crop.
The aromas and flavours are strong and complex including sweet fruits, earthiness and a slight musky quality. The effect is very potent, with a relaxing body-stone that will provide relief from pain and aid sleep amongst others.

About Mr Nice Seedbank
Howard Marks and Shantibaba, the men who created Mr Nice Seedbank, met during the late 1990's while living and working in Holland. In 1995, Shantibaba had set up the Greenhouse Seed Company. Coincidentally, at the same time, Howard was released from a lengthy imprisonment in the USA.
During the next few years, the two became very good friends and discussed the possibility of working together. They decided to start a seed company to help growers throughout the world.
In 1998, Shantibaba sold his interest in the Greenhouse Seed Company and, as a sole trader, set up Mr Nice Seedbank, which has always been and remains a Dutch company. He established Mr Nice Seedbank, with its forty parent plants, to make strains and seeds available to all levels of growers in order to help them spread the genetic diversity of cannabis.
Rather than joining any seed companies' bandwagon by merely chasing money, Mr Nice Seedbanks dedicated their efforts to make old and new world seeds available for growers. They did not care how many seeds they sold or whether they had a profile in the limelight.
In 1999, Dutch law changed and no longer permitted the production of seeds. However, selling seeds imported from another country remained legal. Mr Nice wanted to fulfil their project without breaking any country's laws. Accordingly, they moved growing operations to Switzerland, where the law permits growing cannabis for seed production. Many Dutch seed companies lost plants, mother rooms, and seed crops, but in Switzerland, Mr Nice seed production blossomed.
Mr Nice Seedbank has consistently maintained a visible presence on various helpdesks, directly interacting, testing, and researching with the growers of its products. Their aim is to help people, wherever they are, who have worked or intend to work with any of their product.
