purple marijuana plants

Because you want shorter plant with CFLs, you generally want to stick with indica-based strains, while avoiding most sativa or haze strains as they tend to grow tall and stretchy. Train plants to grow short and flat with many buds sites to get the best yields from CFLs. In a grow box it’s important to grow a cannabis strain that… Naturally stays small/short – helpful because most grow boxes don’t have a lot of extra space. Indica-hybrid strains are recommended because they tend to stay on the smaller side.

Resistant to heat – some strains are more resistant to high heat and lack of good air circulation, especially strains from the equator Resistant to mold – mold is very common due to the high humidity of a small grow box, which usually doesn’t provide enough air circulation for proper growth. “Cheese” strains and strains with Hawaiian ancestry tend to be more mold-resistant in general, but it’s also a strain-by-strain thing. Weak cannabis smell – Generally growers with grow boxes want to keep their garden a secret. Something that can help prevent other people from noticing your grow is a strain that produces buds with a low level of smell, especially if buds also smell flowery or fruity instead of skunky. Can stand high levels of light – this helps because plants are normally kept very close to grow lights in a short space. Many Sativa and Haze strains tend to be more light loving, while Indica strains are more likely to suffer from light burn. However, Indica strains tend to grow short, which is helpful, so if possible you want to find a hybrid that has both traits. Papaya by Nirvana – This strain can be a great candidate for a grow box because it has been bred to stay short, harvest quickly, and produce mold-resistant and disease-resistant buds. It also has a relatively light smell that’s a little tropical and spicy, with less of a “cannabis” smell than many other strains.

It produces a “couchlock” stone that’s heavy on body effects. Aurora Indica by Nirvana – Another strain by Nirvana that’s well-suited to micro grows in small spaces (they’ve developed a few specialized stealth strains). It has more CBD than the Papaya, which makes it more suitable for medical marijuana patients, and has a very potent effect and also a deep “body stone.” It takes a few weeks longer to finish than the Papaya. It stayed very short but buds were thick and dense! When it comes to growing medical marijuana, the goal is usually to grow strains that are either very high in THC (psychoactive effects), high in CBD (relaxing effect), or high in both.

The Holy Roman emperor Otto I (912-973), called Otto the Great, was the most powerful western European ruler after Charlemagne. He organized a strong German state and expanded his authority over Burgundy and Italy. Otto I was the son of King Henry I (the Fowler) of Germany. In 929 he married Edith, daughter of Edward the Elder of England; she died in 946. Otto was Duke of Saxony when his father died in 936, and he was at once elected king (which rule he held until 962) at Aix-la-Chapelle by the great magnates. The rulers of the other great duchies caused Otto initial problems. By 947 he had solved them by absorbing the duchy of Franconia into his direct rule and by handing over the others, Lorraine, Swabia, and Bavaria, to members of his family. By 951 Otto had been drawn into Italy by the fear that its widowed Queen Adelaide, who was having trouble, would be rescued, and her lands absorbed, by the nearby king of Burgundy or his own dukes of Swabia or Bavaria. To forestall these moves, Otto crossed into Italy and married her himself—thus establishing his claims to her lands. Before he could consolidate his position there, however, he was drawn back to Germany by a revolt of his leading dukes, led by his son and heir, and by a serious incursion of the nearby Hungarians. He put down the revolt and crushed the Hungarians at the decisive battle of Lechfeld in 955. Once these tasks were accomplished, Otto gave the duchy of Lorraine, whose duke had perished at Lechfeld, to his clerical brother Archbishop Bruno of Cologne. At about this time he also began relying increasingly upon churchmen to help him to govern his realm and to furnish him with armed forces. He did so by endowing churchmen, whom he appointed to office, with wide lands and immunities in return for governmental and military services. Since Church offices were not hereditary, this made them a most useful and dependable counterweight to the secular nobles, who often were unreliable and had heirs as well.

While Otto was busy in Germany, however, he did not ignore his neighbors. He intervened in the struggle between the French Capetians and Carolingians and thus assured himself of their acceptance of his absorption of Lorraine into the empire.

He kept control over Hedeby in Denmark and over the archbishoprics of that kingdom. He encouraged churchmen and his Saxon subordinates Gero and Herman Billung to begin the conquest of the Slavs beyond the Elbe River, and he forced the Duke of Bohemia to do him homage. It was as master of much of northern Europe that Otto invaded Italy in 961. A year later, after conquering Rome, Otto was crowned Western emperor by Pope John XII. He and the Pope later quarreled, and Otto with some difficulty replaced him with another candidate, whom he forced upon the clergy and nobles of Rome.
