Mango Kush will show you what low-maintenance cultivation means. A strain made for beginners, it has straightforward needs and high resistance to pathogens. It generates a moderate yield that can easily be amplified if you nurture it properly.
The Sea of Green (SOG) method works best for this compact cannabis plant. You can put a maximum of two plants in one square foot of space, but be cautious of possible overcrowding as this may lead to air circulation problems. Inadequate airflow could potentially create a breeding ground for pathogens. Ideally, you want to maximize the available space, but follow this temperature and relative humidity (RH) guide to avoid any problems:
- Seedling period: 20 to 25 degrees Celsius (68 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit), 65 to 70% RH
- Vegetation period: 22 to 28 degrees Celsius (72 to 82 degrees Fahrenheit), 40 to 70% RH, lowered by 5% each week
- Flowering period: 20 to 26 degrees Celsius (68 to 79 degrees Fahrenheit), 40 to 50% RH
- 1 to 2 weeks before harvest: 18 to 24 degrees Celsius (64 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit), 30 to 40% RH
SOG paired with organic soil boosts bud production and enhances the terpene profile. This ganja is known for being flavorful and aromatic, and an organic growing medium further improves it. On the other hand, you could also use a hydroponic setup to grant the plant direct access to the nutrients. This makes it grow more vigorously. In either case, you can expect your crop to flower in 8 to 9 weeks and produce around 400 grams (14 ounces) of bud per square meter.
Mango Kush can reach a height of 120 to 150 cm (4 to 5 feet) when propagated outdoors. It favors a warm climate that offers sufficient exposure to sunlight. The harvest time is mid to late October, and each plant can produce up to 450 grams (16 ounces).
Feminized seeds are the simplest to grow because they sprout flowering females, whereas using regular seeds gives you equal chances of getting male and female plants. If you are thinking about breeding, you can use the male plants but make sure to separate them as soon as possible. Males can accidentally pollinate the females, resulting in lower yields.
