Ganesh by Mandala Seeds is an excellent choice for closet cultivation or a homebox due to it’s short stature and the even growth pattern. An impressive stout plant oozing with resin that grows like an indica and feels like a sativa. 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. The unique combination of landrace 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 density 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. Ganesh 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. 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. High: A potent, laid back, sativa-dominant high; sensual; body relaxation. Aroma: Skunky-pungent, sweet, earthy, chocolate. This strain shows potential against depression & anxiety. Preliminary reports show that it can be used as a muscle relaxant.
