Pure Indicas originally come from the hash producing countries of the world like Pakistan, Afghanistan, Morocco and Tibet. They are short, dense plants, with broad leaves that often grow a darker green, with more chlorophyll and less accessory pigments (accessory pigments protect the plant from excessive sunlight). After flowering starts they will mature in 6 to 8 weeks and are better for indoor growing because they do not grow as tall as sativas. The flowers will be thick and dense, with flavors and aromas ranging from pungent skunk to sweet and fruity.
