Mandala is the best seed company I have dealt with, period! I have yet to grow out the seeds I ordered, Satori, Farout, and Rishi Kush, but I have no doubt they will be every bit as they are described on Mandala's website. Their "agent of happiness", Devi, is by far the best customer service agent I have ever dealt with, responsive and quick to a solution. And they carry a full line of seeds from other breeders as well.
So pick your fancy and pick Mandala Seeds!
We have tried a lot of strains from Mandala over the past 20 yrs and always had great germination and a lot of great buds, used the Safari mix and chose the best to cross with. All have been a fantastic range of plants and have given great satisfaction in our Volcano or when made into Oil. Thanks to all at Mandala and looking forward to some Landrace genetics.
This variety has been a consistent performer outdoors at 50 North since it's release some years ago. You will need to use quite a few sativa training techniques or you will have to grab a ladder for your harvest! As mentioned by the other reviewer here there are basically two types that show up, purple or green. I find the green one to always be the fence breaker ;), she has crazy compound branching and will put on huge overnight growth when conditions are right so get out your pruning shears and heavy duty twine. The purple types are often a little better behaved but will benefit from shaping and pinching out.
Although these Bhutanese beasts go to the late end of my season they can really handle some poor conditions, like our inland fogs and exposure to high winds and rain. You will need some staking and pay attention to airflow through the canopy however, no flowering cannabis plant is totally weatherproof.
All this vigour in PPV means a bit of work but your efforts are amply rewarded in flowers! No super dense nugs here but ample weights through sheer biomass. I tend to make hash from my plants and often produce something similar to some of the high quality Lebanese that used to get around a few decades back, a wonderful treat that keeps me smiling through the year.
Highly recommended variety for anyone who has a less than perfect climate, one or two of these make a beautiful addition to any outdoor garden.
I've been growing Satori 10+ years and she never fails to amaze me! The vigour is out of this world and I can always count on great yield. It's very rare to find a seedbank that delivers such consistent results over time. A superb smoke in all aspects...lots of creative juices flowing at daytime, a refreshing sleep at night. All of my friends love it. Thank you Mike & Jasmin for your outstanding genetics and fair prices!
I’ve loved growing Mandala Seeds for years, the genetics are a joy to grow. Customer service is on top of communication.
Good day folks. I would like to commend both Ace and Mandala. I wanted to let both company's know how pleased I am with the service. Today I received my package of Zamaldelica breeders pack. 17 days from ordering.
Every email/question I had was answered promptly and professional. Thank you both for the top shelf genetics and service. I will be ordering again this year.
Thank you again,
Other then great genetics, one of the benefits of dealing with Mandala are their excellent grow guides. While focused on Mandala strains, the advise can be applied to any and all strains, and planting in general. If upon reading the guides you find that you already apply the techniques, you will no doubt tip your hat to the science based contents. Follow Jasmin's advise and reap the benefits.
Purple Paro Valley (PPV) this is an odd duck. First of all note the elevation it grows at in Bhutan. If it grows there it can grow anywhere were my thoughts. From my grow 3 years ago, I had 2 distinct pheno types; one producing small purple buds, the other, well tell ya bout that in a moment.
Both phenos have long internodes and are defiantly "sativas". The girl with the purple buds had bright purple stems as well. The reason the buds were small was do to my tyro efforts as a grower at the time. The buds were a trimmers delight. The Other gal was another story. First off let me say when you grow PPV by all means take the advise and remove the lower branches. This female was very stretchy in the internodes as well, and had deep purple stems like the other. Now here is the kicker. (Disclaimer: This is NOT a hippie story, and I promise you it is a factual account, skepticism gladly appreciated). When mature at the end of September after being started in a makeshift greenhouse around tie ides of March, the finished plant was 6 feet tall and 32 feet in diameter. For real. The "buds", 3.5 dried lb of them were very loose, lime green, looked like foxtails and had no bag appeal at all. It was some of the absolute best smoke we produced that season. 2 pounds were made into shatter,, and the rest was personal stash. The purple buds although small, had Great bag appeal, and had the same wonderful buzz. The claimed THC for this strain is 8.7 to 11 %? I call Bullshit on that lol.
This year i have PPV in my roster in a 300 gallon grow bag. I have passed the seeds out to friends and family and we see what we get this season. Recommended!
Over the seasons, I have done much business with Attitude Seeds. I never was stiffed or had a shipment "lost". I do have issues with their shipping prices....they are damn proud of them!. A rate for international, and then an equal amount to guarantee the shipment. Ouch! Mandala has equal or superior shipping methods and are Kind to the buyer. The Stealth factor of shipments is genius. The "Freebie" selection is unmatched in the industry as well.
Another great plus when dealing with Mandala is you are positive you will receive what you ordered. I WILL NOT purchase seeds from Canada, or any from the states; it is just to iffy. I have a very short growing season, limited funds, so I cannot afford to gamble on seed stock. I am sure other seed banks take a sigh of relief when Mandala is on Summer vacation!
The Mandala strains I grow are made for the climate of my area 41.2 North at 4261 feet elevation.
Hola. Aun no he germinado las semillas, pero he hecho ya dos compras y la experiencia ha sido estupenda. Han sido envios internacionales (discretos) y pagados con Paypal. Estupendo todo. Seguire comprando, tanto semillas Mandalas como de otros bancos.
I love this strain, beautiful frosty, nice very balanced high. Easy to grow. My plant got shocked and stressed so I put it on the balcony in two weeks it picked up again and end up with wonderful tasty pleasant bud :-)great. thank you!
Thank you for the order. I really appreciate the freebie from you. I'm very surprised how many seeds you gave me for free and specially a strain I like. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are the best, most honest and fair company I know, and you also have the most incredible genetics I have seen in the past 6 years. I love you and you are the number 1 seed bank to go to.

Der Kundenservice ist super! Fragen werden schnell beantwortet, geliefert wird schnell und zuverlässig. Die Mandala-Seeds sind hervorragend, stabil und super ausgereift sowie frisch. Bisher hatte ich immer eine 100%-Quote (bei Vorgehen nach Anleitung) Ich habe mehrmals bestellt und war immer sehr zufrieden. Wenn ich bestelle dann definitiv bei Mandala. Ihr macht das super. Vielen Dank! :D
After repeated nightmare level experiences in the states with self aggrandizing ‘breeders’ pushing faux genetics, selling feminized as regular, or just flat out stealing money I came across Mandala seeds.
Folks, Mandala is the real McCoy. They stand by every package and treat you like family, not their next deposit.
Polar opposites of the current state of seed sales in the US. Honest & Generous.
