Northern Lights was one of the first varieties developed for indoor cultivation. To bud well indoors it requires moderate temperatures, a constant supply of food and bright lighting.
Outdoors, high temperatures can cause the buds to run or elongate. In areas with the brightest light, the plants can be burned by direct sunlight. They are also sensitive to low moisture conditions. The plants are suitable for cooler areas with cloud cover and for lightly shaded gardens.
