This was my 1st grow with regular seeds. I was going to use these to breed with a Mexican sativa, but all of my 4 seeds I germinated turned into females. The plants had 2 distinct phenotypes with the sativa phenotype most dominant . The plants where grown well in the garden in a hot / dry with minimal intervention. I prepared the site with lots of well composted soil and added guano when the plants went into flowering. Plants were grown in wire cages with LST. Yields were higher than I expected with 400 to 500 grams per plant harvested mid September at 34 ' N latitude. The buds were well formed with a spice/herbal nose. The smoke is smooth and not harsh. The high is a mix: sativa start and then a indica type relaxation . Perfect for the after dinner smoke or for hanging with friends. Not the highest TCH, but a nice functional high.
Overall: Excellent hybrid mix with great genetics. Great germination success following Mandala Seeds instructions. Easy to grow in hot climates with minimal intervention. Good yields with well formed colas. Pleasant smoke. I would grow these again.
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.
After multiple previous attempts with various germination methods with other seed companies with less than optimal results, I carefully read and followed your germination instructions and I am very pleased with my 100% germination rate with Rishi Kush. Your seeds are fantastic!
