Love the Satori seeds! Thank you
Love to see y’all are back and in full bloom! Stared buying from mandala years ago.. Did a Sadhu / Satori / Kalichakra order.. landrace goodness for this (at the time) novice grower in a certain Midwestern city called Chicago!! Wow that Satori really sent me into interstellar overdrive!! All good gnosis and wisdom and kicks and joy and beatific high tingles! Kudos to Mandala and I’m gearing up for 2022 purchases!!! Now that I’m livin’ back in the motherland (Los Angeles) … ciao Bella’s!!!
The Satori grew extremely well, with all but one seed germinating, out of two orders. Efficient shipping, and I really like the customer service...questions on a couple different strains were answered thoroughly.
Only possible negative, is that they disco tinued Speed Queen before I could ever try it.
I like that Mandala creates these extra special hybrids with landrace traits.
They do look very natural, the smell is unusual but the effect is where they shine. They feel holistic.
Growing outdoors with minimal care, these seeds took to the native soil and grew quickly into mammoth plants. Fed on natural sunlight and organic teas, the Flashberries flourished cheerfully while I puzzled over the mysterious symptoms afflicting other, fussier plants nearby.
These fine specimens developed beautiful buds, wonderfully fruity and coated with crystals. The high is dreamy and spacious, and works to enhance whatever it is you’re doing or experiencing; working, playing, taking a walk outside…
Highly recommended. Easy to grow, truly tasty, potent without negative effects. Like most every strain I’ve tried from Mandala, Flashberry succeeds best in a natural setting with minimal intervention.
Firstly, thank you Mandala for extending your shipping destinations to include some of the countries in the Southern Hemisphere. Whilst ordering from a distributor has been trouble free, getting the seeds direct from yourselves makes them a little more special!
After discovering your products a few years ago and combined with your no nonsense and strict breeding goals, the Mandala plants that I have grown have offered everything your descriptions have promised. The ease of cultivation, stability of genetics and quality of flowers has met or exceeded my expectations. I have been growing a personal medical supply for 35+ years, so this is no faint praise indeed, and to say I have tried a few plants before is an understatement! People with whom I have shared some of the flowers with think I grow good plants, but without exceptional genetic seed stock, growing good plants is only half of the story. All have been amazed with whichever Mandala strain I have offered them, be it California Dream, 8 Miles High, Beyond the Brain, Fruitylicious, Kalichakra, Krystalica or the truly amazing Satori. I have also used some of these strains to create my own hybrids and the results have been startling. Some people may be afraid of growing regular seeds, but in my experience, careful seedling selection has resulted in a surprising ratio of, on average, of only one male per nine females, so with a bit of luck and careful observation, regular seeds can be just as easy to get good outcomes as growing feminised seeds - well, almost! I do believe regular seeds are more natural and more robust than feminised seeds, which can, depending on the breeder, produce the odd hermaphrodite more often. I am glad to see that you, (Mandala) have resisted the urge to go down the auto flower path, I personally will never grow them again after experiencing a lot of disappointments with unstable genetics, dwarf plants, fussy plants, many hermaphrodites, and after trying 30 odd plants from half a dozen of the big players in the auto flower market and over a couple of years, I have come to the conclusion that they are more trouble than they are worth and do not in any way offer anything that can not be already achieved with "normal" photoperiod plants. Yes, I despise auto flowers!
So, to those contemplating some Mandala Seeds seeds, I say "go for it" you will be pleasantly surprised by what careful breeding has achieved with the mainly landrace genetics used by Mandala and the resulting flowers will open your eyes to a whole new world of plants that can trace their origins back to where it all started, in nature. You won't find and DosicookiesgorillasherbetOGmints here, just honest, well bred super plants that are the true foundation of cannabis culture and whose breeders have focussed on ease of growth, productivity, genetic stability and quality first. Treat yourself to an experience of honest-to-goodness pot and your world will never be the same again. You will realise all those Frankenstein genetics pervading the market these days, which seem to focus on THC content and little else, are really missing the mark by not offering the "whole package", something Mandala has been offering for decades now. Treat yourself!
P.S. - also, please don't be a smart a** and make stupid video clips about how clever the stealth packaging is and then post it on YouTube or other types of "social media", it won't stay stealth for very long if you do!
In the years of cultivation I have not come across a plant as special as Satori! The most euphoric smoke ever!
Really thought I'd been had when I got my order - the stealth packaging was so good I thought it was a scam. When I realized how it was hidden I was surprised, it must take quite some time to package in this way. Exceptional stealth packing, never seen it this good.
Mandala are a very professional company with fantastic communication.
This was my first time ordering and I’ll definitely be a return customer.
I received 8 free Mandala #1 seeds as well as 10 more I purchased. I also received 10 Satori and 10 Eight Miles High that I purchased. I’ve been waiting for years for Mandala Seeds to be available in the US. I have not been able to plant anything yet. Satori is the one I’ve been dreaming about. I was fortunate in the 80’s to hook up with someone who traveled the Silk Road and gave me seeds from several areas including India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. I also acquired some Mexican seeds and had great fun breeding them. Unfortunately, I eventually lost all of my strains in the early 2000’s. Now I have a chance to revisit some of the land race genetics that were so powerful and enlightening.
This is a long worked seed variety for outdoor that gives very predictable results. At 50 north it reaches full maturity a little late to be called a truly early type but harvests made before bad autumn weather still provide a decent yield of flowers. Some experience with the slower and stocky growth of inbred indica does help; start them a bit earlier than usual to compensate for that and to encourage branching, then some light defoliating will help too.
These are tough plants that tolerate less than ideal conditions but you still need to watch for botrytis and wind damage. Two phenotypes show up, being the red/purple and green, where the green is rarer and usually more potent, you will get some cbd showing up in the highly coloured plants but I cannot personally verify just how much... They feel more thc dominant on the whole. Can be done under lights with skill but keeping mother plants needs experience.
A very useful addition to northern gardens that will repay some extra care despite being a tough contender, well worth a couple of packs to find a favorite.
Seedlings shot up above all others. Will enjoy watching them grow!
Cannot wait to see how they develop!
Plants are strong and growing rapidly!
All seeds planted sprouted and are doing well!
