just wondering what the general word is on growing sativa indoors. i know it's supposed to be much harder, but perhaps are there tricks or different hybrids of sativa/indica that are easier to grow?

reason most people don't grow sativas indoor isn't because of difficulty, but because they can be lower yielding, taller, and take longer to flower than a indica/sativa hybrid or a straight indica.
... at least that's the story I've heard. Sativa plants definitely grow taller and CAN produce lighter / less dense buds.
Any experienced sativa growers want to chime in?

I just started some Purple Cindy from Highgrade Seeds in party cups.. It's mostly sativa. 4 feet isn't bad at all and it could be so easily scrog'd. 10 week flowering time is also completely acceptable..
High quality sativas produce clear psychoactive effects, without the feeling of sleepiness or tiredness. The presence ofTHCV, a compound that makes the stimulant effect of THC stronger, and the absence of CBD are key factors to the length of the effect, as it can last for several hours, without the sensation of lethargy or tiredness.
It is not easy to create this quality of plants whilst maintaining high production.
Royale Haze meets both requirements: the effect is true sativa and it produces like crazy as long as its gets a lot of light, plenty of water, a lot of fertilizer, and just 70 days of flowering. 10%-20% of plants can manage 75 or even 80 days, but most of them are ready in 70 days. The aroma is really spicy, with a subtle sweet skunk tone in some of them which is rich, complex and tasty.
It can easily be grown outdoors, even in cold and mountainous climates of Southern Europe, as it is harvested relatively early towards the end of October. Out of the 3 sativas that we have produced, this is the best mixture of extreme strength, sativa quality and high production. It is completely suitable for a SCRaG.
Flowering period: 65-75 days
Harvest outdoors: 20 – 30th October
THC: Very high (16%-20%)
CSO: Very low
Production: Very high
Height outdoors: Up to 4.5m
Blend: Sativa with 15% Indica
Genotype: Haze x (Skunk x Northern Lights)
