Type: sativa-indica
Cultivation: indoor/outdoor
Light: 400 W/m2
Flowering time: 70-75 days/October
Yield: 500-550 gr/m2 (dry weight)
High: a potent, sativa high with an energizing body effect; THC-tolerance only builds up slowly, therefore the best choice for medical or regular users.
Medical Use: Kalichakra shows her therapeutic potential in pain relief and helping against depression.

KALICHAKRA

This variety carries the name of the Hindu Godess Kali, a tantric partner of the ganja smoking God Shiva. With Kalichakra we offer a hardy, potent sativa hybrid with a good yield. This sativa remains easy to control in height - indoor you can expect her to increase two to three times in height in the flowering period. Outdoors she will reach a height of 1,6 - 2,0 meters in temperate climates. Due to the high calyx-leaf ratio the quality of the flowers is above average and she is easy to manicure. She grows in two distinct phenotypes: some plants develop their resinous flowers in an airy pattern, others grow compact quality buds. Kalichakra provides clones easily and in Hydroponics rapid growth can be expected - thereby shortening the flowering time.

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Sadhu (10 seeds)

!
Type: indica-sativa
Cultivation: indoor/outdoor
Light: 400 W/m2
Flowering time: 60-65 days/September - 1. week October
Yield: 400-450 gr/m2 (dry weight)
High: relax and unwind with a strong psychoactive high that makes your mind fly while your body remains in a state of relaxation; this indica is seldom narcotic if harvested within 8 1/2 weeks.
Medical Use: Sadhu assists against stress and nervousness.

SADHU

Sadhu is a combination of a specially adapted landrace male from the Himalayan heights and one of our short flowering indica-sativa hybrids. This variety is a hommage to the legendary ganja from the Indian high altitude valleys, and to the wandering ascetics or sadhus, who keep the tradition of cannabis cultivation and ganja alive. The robust and compact Sadhu is especially suited for indoor gardens where her medium height and shorter flowering period are an important asset. Incognito outdoor cultivation sites benefit from her shorter stature of about 1.6 meters . An area with low humidity levels during the last two weeks of flowering enables highest yields. Some plants are more leafy and, therefore, a bonus for hash enthusiasts. Her aromatic properties lend to a tasty yet mild smoke and the high is exceptionally pleasant.

Her mostly slim appearance make it possible to plant in narrow rows to maximize yield and the firm sideshoots provide strong cuttings. Like all our varieties she is also quite resilient against heat - an added bonus for small indoor environments. With sufficient light and warmth in a greenhouse or in hydroponics, record yields of up to 600gr/m2 can be achieved. Her mainly sweet and spicy aroma is a special treat for the senses. This variety is a favourite of our breeders - and they must really know what counts!

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Hashberry (10 seeds)

!
Type: mostly indica
Landrace genetics from: North India (Kashmir)
Cultivation: indoor/outdoor (up to 45° latitude, balcony, greenhouse)
Light: 400 W/m2
Flowering time: 60-65 days/September - 1. week October
Yield: 400-450 gr/m2 (dry weight)
High: the classic chill-out weed, an expansive indica stone with a powerful high that sets in with the first lungfull of smoke, the buzz is first light-headed and very balanced before switching to a stronger narcotic phase towards the end of your flight.

With this exceptional new strain we are building upon our successful breeding lines to offer growers an indica that combines the best of many traits. Hashberry is the unique result from a rigorous selection of desirable parents, with special attention paid to preserve the hybrid vigor our strains are so valued for. This indica will grow to a medium height and is a good choice where space matters and excellent for SOG. Hashberry develops a tight and heavy head bud with dense buds located on her firm side shoots. You will notice that many plants cover the bud leaves with a coat of THC glands and these will fill your pollinator/bubble bags generously. This strain still remains easy to manicure, and the dried buds have great “bag appeal”. The buds reveal a refreshing fruity-floral scent during the flowering period. After proper drying and maturation their fragrance transforms into a delicious hashy-berry like aroma. Hashberry not only has hybrid vigor, but is also very heat resistant and easy to grow. We recommend keeping humidity levels and watering low during the last 2 weeks of flowering to prevent any mold in the compact top buds.

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Speedqueen (10 seeds)

!
Genetics: mostly indica

Contains land race genetics from Himachal Pradesh, North India

Flowering time: 55 days

Outdoor (up to 45° latitude/greenhouse): September

Yield: 400-450 gr/m2 (dry weight)

Effect:
the "surfers" choice - a stimulating, and balanced indica buzz that does not put you to sleep. Pleasantly relaxing yet leaves plenty of energy for social activities and is a great daytime grass.

The latest addition to our seed catalog is at the same time our fastest flowering strain. Speed Queen is a stocky and tough indica with a thick main stem (green or with distinct scarlet coloring) and fleshy leaves. She carries compact and resiny buds that have great "bag appeal" after drying. One pheno has the delicious aroma of orange and citrus. The other mixes this freshness with a more pungent/skunky note. This indica will fit well into grow spaces where shorter plants are required. Outdoor cultivation is possible up to the 45° latitude or in a greenhouse. To a large extent the bud leaves are covered with THC glands, but harvesting is a quick operation since all buds remain nice and chunky. Speed Queen is not finicky or difficult to grow. Due to her vigor and quick flowering time this strain is perfect for novice gardeners, and SOG cultivation that aims for max. number of crops per year.

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Mandala 1 (10 seeds)

!

Type: sativa-indica

Genetics: South African highland Sativa x NZ Purple Indica & North Indian Sativa

Flowering time: 55-60 days indoor; mid-end of September: outdoor/greenhouse

Yield (dry weight): 450gr/m2 indoor

Aroma: properly cured buds have a natural sweet smell like dried apples. The purple plants spread a delicious raspberry fragrance, with a touch of minty freshness.*

High: an up-high that spreads in waves; euphoric; creative; can also be spacey or dreamy at the start.

Medical use: Mandala #1 may benefit with it's anti-anxiety and anti-depressive effect. As this is a new strain we will be updating further benefits once feedback comes in from med users.

 

Mandala #1 is a good choice if you are aiming for a quick crop with a sativa effect. We recommend this strain especially for northern climates where harvesting by the end of September is a priority. This strain has two basic phenotypes (characteristic plant types). Approximately 30% of the plants belong to the sativa dominant phenotype and grow in a christmas tree shape. The leaf structure is similar to the indica dominant pheno. Purplish leaf stems and light red stripes along shoots are not uncommon and should not be mistaken for a nutrient deficiency. The young flowering plants have a perfumed woody-herbal fragrance when you rub the stems.* Despite the sativa dominance the buds are chunky and the plants are easy to grow.

The indica type pheno is apparent through it's squater growth, thick main stem, and larger leaves. Branches are shorter, growing upwards close to the plant (perfect for SOG). The side shoots towards the top are also short and give the head buds a more compact structure. This pheno tends to develop a sweet-spicy smell during early flowering.

Mandala #1 flowers with a spear-shaped head bud of considerable length that makes this a high yielder. Resin output is impressive - also in outdoor grows. The prime head buds are coated with a thick layer of trichomes and glisten brightly in the sun. Some plants develop beautiful dark purple calyxes during mid-flowering: a trait which they inherited from the New Zealand Purple Indica in the paternal line. Harvesting is very simple since the calyx-to-leaf ratio is predominantly high.

 

Indoor

 

One of our breeding goals is to ensure that our strains are flexible and stable so that plants can be raised indoor and undergo the light stress of switching between artificial lighting and sunlight. It is therefore possible to start your garden indoor and shift the plants outdoor for flowering. Cloning and regenerating Mandala #1 is easy.** Since this strain has a high percentage of landrace genetics that were adapted to growing on nutrient poor soil, the plants subsist easily in good horticultural grade potting soil and require little feeding if any.

We recommend to provide an adequate pot size for healthy growth. Height is average and even the sativa pheno can be accomodated in small indoor spaces if a 12/12 light period is started early. A Sea of Green style cultivation is best with the Indica phenotype, or with clones (rather than from seed) of both phenos. All plants are suitable for SCROG and other forms of training.

 

Outdoor

 

This early flowering strain shares the benefits of hardy landrace genetics and a very resinous hybrid to produce robust plants with high bud quality. The auto-flowering traits in this cross initiate flowering early enough for an abundant yield in September. Even if harsh weather circumstances require harvesting before all plants reach full maturity, they will still deliver a satisfying amount of resin-coated buds.

 

*Aroma is based on our observations in organic soil grow.

** For optimal results we recommend you regenerate flowering plants as early as possible and under a 22-24 hour light source until the fresh leaf growth reverts to 5-finger leaves.

 

Mandala Seeds Deluxe 8 Miles High (10 seeds)

!

type: sativa-indica
Contains land race genetics from: Africa; North India
Cultivation: indoor/outdoor
Flowering time: 60-65 days/1st week Oct. (south), mid October (north)
Yield: 400-450 gr/m2 (dry weight)
High: a sativa-dominant high; uplifting; alert & fiery-energetic; thought provoking; trippy visuals; creative.
Aroma: a sweet-fruity melange of strawberry and melon; hash-candy; piney; minty.
Medical use: good potential against lethargy & depression; stimulates appetite.


8-Miles-HighThis is a fragrant, uplifting sativa that delivers quality harvests indoor & outdoor. Special attention was devoted to making this variety a low-maintenance plant that finishes by mid-October in northern climates. Flowering sets in quickly with most plants sexing within one week of switching to 12/12. Another positive feature is the fast and profuse resin production during early flowering that rewards your efforts right from the start. 8 Miles High has proven to be very reliable under various environmental stress factors such as abrupt changes in light and temperature. Plants can therefore be moved from indoor and planted out with no adverse effects. This strain is easy to grow and has no special requirements. It has shown good mold resistance and grows well in soil with no extra feeding*, making it a good choice for growers with little experience or not much time on their hands.

The indica-type females have minimum branching, medium tall growth, and are excellent for small spaces or cultivation in close rows. The sativa-leaning pheno can be grown as a multi-stem plant or trained if this is your preferred method of cultivation. It has longer branching due to the extended internodes and exhibits great potential as a big producer outdoor. For a sea of green set-up in hydro both phenos can be used. In hydro we recommend pruning the bottom branches on the sativa-leaning females so that all energy is focused on the long central cola.

Mandala Seeds 8 Miles High has a great calyx-to-leaf ratio and slim leaves that make trimming the buds a quick job. Resiny bud production throughout the plant from top to bottom guarantees a quality harvest. The aromatic properties of this strain are delightfully diverse and feature the rare trait of strawberry fragrance. During flowering a slight brush against the plants releases a wonderful sweetness with an earthy undertone. This delicate aroma is followed by the more dominant piney freshness. As the plants mature you can also detect whiffs of a sweet lemonade scent. Cured buds retain the piney-minty smell but, in addition, there is a variety of delicious aromas ranging from strawberry, melon, to hash-candy.**

The smoke has a fresh minty taste and lingering sweetness to it. 8 Miles High lifts off straight to the head and triggers a lot of cerebral 8-Miles-Highactivity with flashes of insights and long episodes of trippy visuals when you close your eyes and switch to auto pilot. This is a functional daytime smoke, or a wake-up call to keep you on your feet partying at night. The uplifting, almost euphoric, effect sets in once you reach maximum altitude. This energetic sativa glides back down smoothly and leaves an expansive feeling behind.

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Ganesh (10 seeds)

!

For our 5th anniversary we recreated our exotic, high-class indica-sativa hybrid “Yamuna” from the “Limited Collector’s GaneshEdition”, which was issued in our first year, and crossed it with our best Afghan parent from seed stock collected in the 1980’s. The result is an impressive stout plant oozing with resin that grows like an indica and feels like a sativa. Ganesh is an excellent choice for closet cultivation or a homebox due to it’s short stature and the even growth pattern. Plants vegged for 3 weeks in soil reach a height of approx. 60cm when mature. To harvest a field of “baseball bat” type colas in regular sized grow spaces we suggest vegging 4-5 weeks for organic (soil) cultivation. Ganesh grows perfectly with little or no feeding in quality soil. *

Our unique combination of land race genetics injects a lot of vigour into this strain and the thick shoots from mother plants provide quality cuttings over an extended period. Due to the extreme Ganeshdensity of the buds approx. 20-25% of the plants show some mold susceptibility in the top third portion of the head bud in the last week of flowering. Therefore, this strain is best grown in spaces with humidity control (extraction fan, ventilation, night temp. above 20°C or 68F). You should also water sparsely in the last week of flowering. Wait until the plants have slightly droopy leaves and give them just enough for their daily requirement. This is a tried and tested method for strains with dense buds and very effective. A daily check of the top half or top third portion of the head bud during this period lets you detect mold early before it can cause any damage. Growing with clones, SCROG, and pruned plants (indoor/outdoor) is not affected by a higher mold susceptibility.

Mandala Seeds Ganesh. The dense and crystalline buds have a rich, skunky smell that underlines the top quality of the smoke.** A heavy-duty grinder is recommended for these chunky buds! The taste evokes the times of the finest Himalayan hash in the 1970’s - sweet and earthy with a chocolatey finish. Ganesh combines the best of both worlds: it’s dense, glittery indica nuggets have great ‘bag appeal’ and the sativa-dominant high leaves you functional, social, yet relaxed. It’s a great smoke for fun activities like a beach party; lying in your hammock and watching the sunlight flash through the trees; sensual leisure or bodywork such as massage, yoga, tai-chi; and all kinds of creativity.

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Point of No Return (10 seeds)

!

Point of No Return.This exceptional medical strain should not be missing in any garden if you are looking for a one-hit wonder with a good yield and delicious aroma. Point of No Return (P.N.R.) delivers a beautiful crop of thick cone-shaped buds crowned by towers of resiny calyxes. The long head bud tapers at the end like a peak and has a sufficiently airy structure that contributes to the high mold resistance. Although this is not a large plant it focuses a tremendous amount of energy into bud development and has potential as a high yielder - especially in hydroponics, a greenhouse, or outdoor. P.N.R. grows to a broad christmas tree shape with very long leaf stalks that allow light to pass through the plant, thereby allowing close planting despite the branchy growth. Pruning the the bottom side branches at the first two internodes can be beneficial, especially if you intend to grow in SOG or hydroponics. Due to it’s growth pattern P.N.R. may also be a good choice for SCROG and for cultivating a multi-branch plant. With 4 weeks of vegetative growth, under 400W HPS/m2 in quality soil, you can expect the plants to reach a height between 70-125cm and most will average between 90-100cm. To select the highest yielding mother plant with exceptional resin production we recommend focusing on the taller females. If you require shorter plants for a Homebox/grow tent/closet you can simply reduce the vegetative time to 3 weeks.

The medical properties are very promising for persons who require the benefits of a narcotic or pain reducing strain. The easy growing/low maintenance feature typical of our Mandala genetics adds to the many positive traits of Point of No Return which medical growers will appreciate, especially if they are unable to care for their garden in an intensive way. Flowering time can be extended a few days to further enhance CBD levels.

Mandala Seeds Point of No Return.The high is first felt in the head and an immobilizing effect sets in - emptying the mind of all thoughts. There is literally no turning back once you inhale the first tokes of Point of No Return. It’s best to smoke P.N.R. sitting down! After about one hour the intense stony feeling abates leaving you in a pleasantly relaxed, dreamy state. You can experience the full medical benefits from the indica stone without uncomfortable side-effects such as a hangover the next day. The pain reducing properties work similar to a massage: at the onset of the high you may feel a heightened awareness of the discomfort zones in the body, this eventually gives way to a series of warm wave-like sensations that initiate the relaxation and pain relief phase. Cramp related pain responds well to P.N.R.’s soothing effect. The medical benefits are long lasting and can be felt for many hours. We recommend a calm environment to get the most out of the stress releasing and sleep inducing properties. Smoke this strain about ½-1 hour before going to bed if you suffer from sleep disorders (experiment and see what works best for you). This is a goodnight stone that makes you wake up refreshed. We wish you sweet dreams!

Genetics: Columbian Sativa/Haze x Satori P1
Cultivation: indoor/outdoor
Flowering time: 70+ days/mid-October (south), end of October/November (north)
Yield (dry weight): 250+ gr/m2; 500-750 gr per plant outdoor in the ground
High: crystal-clear cerebral high; expansive; active and social; energizing; transcendental. Especially valuable for creative and spiritually orientated persons and nature lovers.
THC: 23-25%
Aroma: minty; thyme.
Medical use: excellent medical-grade marijuana for broad spectrum use. Great for experiencing a very clear, functional, motivational high with long-lasting potency along with the medical benefits.

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Beyond the Brain (10 seeds)

!

Beyond the Brain is the definitive connoisseur high for the discerning cultivator. If you have tasted your share of sativas and are searching for the purity that only exceptional genetics can offer then you will appreciate this strain. Let Beyond the Brain open your doors of perception to new realms of awareness!

This is so far the only strain out of our genetic repertoire where we are willing to break tradition and offer a “beta version” as a limited collector’s edition. Those who have never grown a Mandala strain may find BTB quite similar in terms of growth to what they usually see in their garden. But seasoned Mandala growers are used to expect amazing vigour and generous, if not marvellous, yields from our strains – and rightly so! These outstanding traits have always featured high on our list of breeding goals along with other essentials such as potency. Beyond the Brain, however, is a modest plant that discreetly hides her secret until the very end, when all her inherent power is revealed as a true consciousness expanding herb of incredibly clarity and power. To preserve this undiluted, pure gateway to transcendental realms is our main intention in the future development of BTB, as we hope to infuse it with more dynamic growth over the coming years of this ongoing project. In the meantime, we would like to share this special high with you!

Beyond the Brain requires a good light source. We recommend the standard 400W-600 HPS/m2. If you are aiming for a higher indoor yield than indicated this is of course possible via the usual techniques. For example, in soil cultivation you can extend the growth cycle to 6-8 weeks. In hydro the yield can be improved by switching to 12/12 after the plants reach an adequate size such as 25-30 cm. Pruning, SCROG and other such methods are only sensible if the plant receives the appropriate additional vegetative time to develop it’s shoots. The height of mature females in soil cultivation reaches approximately 75-95 cm based on 4 weeks vegetative growth under a 20 hour light cycle. Since there is only moderate stretching this is a sativa that can be easily grown in a homebox too. The height of a Mandala strain is also always under your control by deciding when to switch to 12/12.

For indoor soil cultivation you basically only need to provide quality horticultural soil and the correct container size. Beyond the Brain will grow by herself if you let her and is a low-maintenance strain. Although BTB get’s off to a relatively slow start the mature plants show lasting health. They retain their fresh green foliage till the end of flowering and do not exhaust themselves like other varieties may do. This greatly simplifies plant care throughout flowering. BTB is not for growers who will feel motivated to fertilize her to death in order to force growth or extra bud development! If you extend the vegetative time then you may need to provide a mild feeding to top up nutrients in the soil in case you are not repotting soon. Experienced growers who are familiar with their soil brand and organic or mineral fertilizer will know what to do. If you are uncertain, simply “go with the flow” and repot your plants into fresh soil once they get rootbound.

Hydroponics

Use a low EC of 0.8-1.2 and adjust requirements on the basis of plant health and by comparing the EC of the drained nutrient solution with your fresh solution. This is a standard procedure that can be successfully applied to all Mandala strains and most cannabis plants in general. If your tap water is of low quality and already has a high EC you should use a household osmosis filter and mix the osmosis water 50-50 with tap water (experiment to see what ratio gives best results).

Outdoor

In the greenhouse Mandala Seeds Beyond the Brain will grow to a medium-range height and can be planted in an SOG (sea of green) style if required. For best results avoid uncontrolled pest infestation of spider mites or other sap-sucking insects, especially in a greenhouse where pests can reproduce unhindered by predator insects and wind & rain. When planted outdoor this strain is a good choice for warm temperate, mediterranean, and subtropical regions. Mold resistance is high.

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Chill-Om (10 seeds)

!

With this strain we offer a connoisseur quality smoke at an amazing price. Chill-OM is also a good beginner strain, delivering a satisfying yield with just basic plant care. It has all the benefits of hybrid vigour, nutrient efficiency, and the versatility of growing well under many different cultivation methods. Best results can be expected under a good light source such as HPS lamps, because the sativa genetics in this strain do require sufficient light intensity for abundant flowering and THC production. For further information on cultivation, we recommend that you read the advice offered on our website in the extensive grow guides for Mandala strains and cannabis in general.

Chill-OM grows thick stems and has well-defined, yet space saving, branching to provide excellent cuttings. It is also perfect for sea of green or close planting. This strain shows some phenotype variation that is mainly expressed in plant height during flowering. The tallest females will be the best choice as mother plants if you are aiming for maximum yield. They can also produce bumper crops outdoor - with long central colas that resemble a giant bong. Shorter females are excellent for small spaces, or for the balcony in regions with warm temperate or hot summers. Of course, you can easily modify height by pruning down a tall plant, or raising a shorter one with an upturned container. If you are growing Chill-OM indoor from seed you should not exceed the 4 week vegetative period in soil. This will prevent issues with the unpruned plants of the taller pheno since growth is fast and strong. The max. height of a tall female under these conditions will be around 150cm/4.9 feet under 400-600W HPS. Pest and mold resistance is good and outdoor plants have survival capabilities against harsher weather from wind or storms due to their robustness. Please consult the Outdoor Guide on our website which regions are best.

Chill-OM easily compensates the lack of uniformity in plant height with it's exceptional top-grade marijuana. The buds are dense and have great 'bag appeal'. When crushed in a grinder, an interesting aromatic blend of frankincense and sage arises from the sticky buds. The smoke is smooth and rich, with a minty aftertaste on the exhale that leaves a pleasant freshness on the tongue like peppermint gum. Chill-OM strikes a perfect balance between potency and everyday enjoyability. After a quick cerebral onset it triggers the feel-good physical sensations. The high then reaches an even and motivating stone that is pleasantly relaxing, yet leaves you with enough energy for socializing or doing something creative. This marijuana can be fun for gaming, hanging out with friends. or watching a good movie. It's vibe is sensual and playful, enhancing the pleasure in whatever you are doing. As the name suggests, Chill-OM is perfect for laid-back hours and leaves a state ot wellbeing behind. Have fun and chill out!

Rishi Kush is a low-maintenance hybrid for beginners and experienced growers alike. This versatile strain can be adapted to numerous cultivation styles such as LST, SCROG, etc. or you can grow it just straight out of the pot. Her generous resin production is matched by a wonderful easy-going high.

The plants are generally covered in a creamy coat of resin from top to bottom and this is an excellent strain for making hash out of the trimmings for double enjoyment. However, we suggest that you don’t overdo the trimming of the resiny bud leaflets since these are absolutely fine to smoke – especially if you vaporize. Overtrimming would just minimize your yield and not contribute much to improving bud quality. The smoke is soft on the lungs and not prone to inducing coughing (based on organic buds/proper drying & curing). During flowering Rishi Kush develops a mainly fruity smell, but the cured buds have a slightly sweet & tangy citrus aroma like a mixture between astringent lemon and spearmint gum.

Rather than the jolt of heavy-hitting strains the high is progressive, yet long lasting with a well-balanced plateau and gentle finish. We recommend this Kush strain especially to growers and medical users who prefer a gentler high that is easy on the mind and body. This is not a mind-numbing herb or couch lock stone that leaves you immobilized. Rishi Kush combines gentle body relaxation with a clear-headed effect. It has a very pleasant high that does not slide into paranoia and is suitable for persons prone to stress and anxiety. The soothing and calming properties contain further medical potential. It's a good afternoon or evening smoke, especially if you want to use it as a sleep aid. Rishi Kush also lends itself well to creative relaxation and enjoying a meal with friends. Whether you want to hang loose during the day or wind down in the evening, either way relaxation is guaranteed!

Plant Height:medium-slightly tall

Welcome to the new edition of Krystalica for 2012! This new stock has only minimal variation to the previous edition which was voted "Strain of the Year" 2011 by High Times. The major change is that we used an almost identical "sister" of the previous mother plant for breeding. This has resulted in the appearance of a delicious strawberry aroma in some of the plants, which enhances the already fruity properties of Krystalica!

Everyone who has even remotely enjoyed our Satori will appreciate Krystalica as another essential connoisseur strain. She offers a great package deal that is hard to come by: impressive resin production, good yields, easy growing, and a superb high. Although both strains have features in common, the cannabinoids in Krystalica make up a distinctly different high. Satori can be too overwhelming for some smokers. Krystalica is smoother and less dramatic in the intial phase of the high, therefore especially appreciated by sensitive persons, or those prone to paranoia and anxiety. This is also a sativa with a relaxing effect that makes you want to slow down and enjoy. Whereas Satori is also suitable for energetic pursuits or partying, Krystalica is best smoked when you want to wind down but stay refreshed or creative at the same time. The medical applications for Krystalica are extensive since it has top THC levels with a very pleasant high to match.

Krystalica can be grown indoor from seeds or clones. Use 400-600W HPS/m2 for best results because this is a high performance strain and may not flower well under low light. In hydroponics impressive yields can be expected – especially if you have selected a mother plant that brings the extra pounds on the scale. Long shoots extending from the bottom two internodes should be pruned in hydroponics or if your grow space is cramped. The remaining branches are of medium length but may require some support during late flowering if the buds become particularly heavy. It is usually sufficient to tie a thick string or gardening wire around the outside perimeter of the plant. The plants grow well in SOG and can be planted in close rows. With 4 weeks of vegetative growth under 400W HPS/m2 in quality soil you can expect the plants to reach a height between 70-110 cm. Use at least 5L/1 gallon containers for growth and 10L/2.5 gallon for flowering for plants from seed (clones can be raised in smaller containers).

Bud development is unlike a typical sativa and quite dense with some plants exhibiting broad indica-type buds. Trichome production can reach amazing heights, extending to the sun leaves, so it pays to keep back-up clones and select the most spectacular individual as mother plant or for breeding projects.

Outdoor

Outdoor cultivation is recommended in regions with warm summers, or up to the 45°N. Krystalica is heat resistant and will grow well in arid-hot environments or a greenhouse. The head buds and side shoots can grow to extraordinary proportions and deliver bumper crops. Further north the performance and harvest date will depend on local weather and length of daylight. Sowing of seeds should commence when there is no more danger of nighttime frost. Sowing can be extended until end of May if you prefer to cultivate shorter plants. Start seeds indoor if the weather is cold and move the seedlings/young plants outdoor or to the greenhouse later. The same can be done with cuttings – but make sure that the light cycle is appropriate so that flowering doesn’t start too soon outside. Most Krystalica's have good mold resistance (see details on our website for phenotypes) but plants should be harvested if it rains frequently in the last 2 weeks of flowering.

Mandala Seeds Deluxe Mango Zamal (10 seeds)

!

Mango Zamal is a 100% sativa with a pleasurable cerebral high. In this landrace hybrid we have largely preserved zamal’s outstanding characteristics, but modified essential features so that it has become more stabilised and easier to grow. The decision to use a South Indian strain to complement zamal was based on our lifelong experience of breeding landraces optimally, plus the fact that the zamal is originally a blend of South Indian and African genetics. The aim of this edition Mango Zamal is to make these rare landrace genetics available for cultivators and breeders who appreciate pure, unique sativas.

There are several variations of zamal distinguished by aromatic qualities such as 'mango-carrot', 'citrus', 'peppery', 'earthy', and so on. The mango-carrot enjoys the best reputation for quality and taste. This landrace strain has the luxury of an on-going tropical season and can be harvested for many years on La Réunion, with impressive yields that would make any grower smile with delight. Zamal is a very strong and resistant plant, certainly a valuable trait on an island affected by hurricanes. For the zamal mother we selected a male parent from an old and reliable South Indian stock that has been tried and tested by us since we collected it in 1992. The particular male chosen for this project convinced us through many outstanding traits that will serve this zamal hybrid well. The new infusion of genes from the male has tamed the wild zamal sufficiently, so that it now offers the possibility of pre-sexing and cloning plants indoor before planting them outdoor. The Lakshmi genetics contribute: impressive stress resistance, controllable plant height, greatly enhanced calyx-leaf ratio, reduced flowering time, larger bud sites and more stability.

The aroma and taste of Mango Zamal is varied and depends on your soil type and other environmental factors. During flowering a mild mango fragrance is not uncommon. It is usually overlayed by other stronger smells that range from carrot to citrus. The cured buds from some plants lean towards a fruity-honey aroma, whilst others have more of a lemon cleaner smell. The high starts up quickly with a slight pressure to the head that abides quickly. An alert yet calm state of mind follows and for the duration of the high you will find concentration and creativity enhanced. Mango Zamal is not overpowering and does not trigger any of the anxiety type side-effects typical to some sativas.
