What are the different growth characteristics associated with Indica, Sativa and hybrid strains?

Indica plants are short, bushy, mature early, have more chlorophyll and less accessory pigments (accessory pigments protect the plant from excessive sunlight).
As Indica strains have more chlorophyll than sativa they grow and mature faster.

Sativa plants are taller, take longer to mature, have less chlorophyll and more accessory pigments (accessory pigments protect the plant from excessive sunlight).
As Sativa strains have less chlorophyll than Indica they take longer to grow, mature, and require more light.

Hybrid plants have a combination of both Indica and Sativa growth characteristics which are relative to strain ratio.

Chlorophyll isn't the reason they mature faster, their original native environment's light cycle and conditions change it's characteristics over time. Indica plants are typically found in areas with shorter growing seasons...either length of light or climate/temperature considerations. Sativas seem to thrive in hotter climates with longer seasons. As a general rule of thumb...the closer to the equator, the greater the chance the original plant was Sativa. Middle East mountains are home to more Indica, or hash plants because they mature faster.
