Sativa plants are much taller and thinner than Indica plants and grow much narrower leaves in a lighter shade of green. They can grow as quickly as 20 feet in a single season, thus making them better suited for outdoor growing. Their geographical origins range from equatorial Colombia and Mexico to Thailand and Southeast Asia. Once the plants begin flowering, they will take on average 10 to 16 weeks to fully mature. The sativa plant ranges in flavors and scents from sweet and fruity to earthy with diesel fuel undertones.
