Polar Express has classic genetic heritage having been bred from Northern Lights #5, a Californian Kush strain chosen from more than 20 originally, and finally Lowryder to provide the auto-flowering property. It is a short to medium height indica/sativa/ruderalis plant with a very good flower to leaf ratio and a dense structure which tends towards indica dominance.
This plant tends to grow with a main central cola and it is recommended not to top this as the best yields are obtained from un-pruned plants. It grows to a height of 30 - 80 cm. tall and due to both this fact and its neutral/low smell it is a very discreet strain for so-called "guerilla" grows. The life-cycle of Polar Express is between 60 - 80 days and, when growing indoors, the trade-off between maximum yields, best flavour and minimum odour calls for a 16-18 hour lights-on period.
In spite of the neutral odour the effect is anything but! Its high levels of THC make for a potent all-round high.
