Aurora Indica

As the name suggests, the Aurora Indica strain is an indica-dominant strain (cultivar) with a composition of 90% indica and 10% sativa. With a low to moderate THC level ranging from 12% to 20%, Aurora Indica is not the most potent strain, but make no mistake, it still creates a heavy buzz. Aurora Indica is noted for its spicy, herbal, pine, and woody taste and sleepy, relaxing, hunger-inducing effects. Aurora Indica is potentially very useful for managing chronic pain, stress, insomnia, and appetite loss.

growing strains

Aurora Indica seeds are readily available on the market, are fast flowering, and are relatively easy to grow, making this a good strain for beginners. Aurora Indica is a strong, sturdy plant that can handle most climates and is resistant to disease.
The plants are short, bushy, and densely packed. The buds are solid and resinous, with pale green leaves, brown and red pistils, and a coating of crystal white trichomes. Because these plants are dense with heavy colas, they can be susceptible to mold in the last few weeks of growth.
Because Aurora Indica plants grow short, they suit the indoor “sea of green (SOG)” growing method, which can yield up to 19.5 ounces per square foot. Aurora Indica can yield up to 23 ounces per plant in an outdoor growing environment.


Characteristic of a true indica plant, Aurora Indica grows short and bushy, reaching only 30 to 40 inches.

Humidity and Temperature

You will need to control the humidity in an indoor environment to avoid mold and mildew in the final few weeks of growth. Your indoor grow space would benefit from some ventilation; in many cases, a dehumidifier will be necessary.
In an outdoor environment, Aurora Indica will thrive in a warm, sunny, south-facing position with daytime temperatures between 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, this strain is challenging and has been known to survive colder outdoor temperatures. The colder temperatures will turn the buds a dark purple color.


If you are growing your Aurora Indica indoors, it should flower around nine to 11 weeks. If you are growing your Aurora Indica outdoors, it should be ready to harvest by mid-September.
