A bonsai in the marijuana kingdom, Lowryder is a hybrid that was inbred and selected for nine generations, resulting in an extremely versatile plant that progresses from seed to bud in a mere two months.
Lowryder plants stay almost comically small, growing no taller than 16 inches, while 12 inches is typical. All plants autoflower in a short period of time. After a 2-3 week seedling phase, these plants go directly into flowering and finish in a speedy 40-45 days. Indoors, lowryder performs well in soil or hydro systems, especially in sea of green setups. Due to the autoflowering characteristic, lights can be left on for 18-24 hours a day, while a 12/12 cycle only diminishes growth and yields. because Lowryder’s life cycle is short, cloning is often impractical.
Outdoors, Lowryder can be grown virtually in any climate, and has pushed the envelope with successful cultivation in unlikely places such as Finland, the Northwest Territories and other high latitude or altitude locations with very short seasons. Due to the diminutive size, this strain is also well adapted and easily contained when cultivated in a backyard or patio garden, or as a windowsill plant.
Lowryder forms one main bud that averages 6 inches in legth. Smaller buds start very close to the ground, and form along other branches, exhibiting very close nodes. They have a slightly irregular shape with thick pistils and orange coloration. This strain’s leaf blades are often slightly whorled with long petioles, which give ample clearance between the stem and leaf for bud formation and air circulation on this pint-sized plant.
The Lowryder high comes on slowly, uplifting with its smooth yet strong smoke that tastes of pleasant, earthy undertones. This is a well-rounded buzz that is suited for outdoor activities.
