ANDHRA BHANG

Andhra Pradesh situated at the southeast of India between tropic of cancer and Equator, is home for one of the oldest and most used strain in India. The infamous bhang variety , which is also referred to as "jungli"is used heavily for making bhang edibles and beverages and widely used for smoking as well. This particular strain comes from the Bay of Bengal region. The climate is similar to the other coastal states in tropical India, wet-humid year around with a major spike in rainfall during July-August-September due to passage of monsoon. Temperature moves from 24- 41 celsius gradually from April till the arrival of the monsoon, which cools it down and brings it to a moderate range, with a min and max of 24-32 celsius.

it's a very fast growing vigorous plant , which grows horizontally as much as it grows vertically, making it suitable for mostly outdoor and greenhouses, although with proper training it can be grown indoors. It can flower for a more than 20 weeks or at least 18-20 weeks on average to produce moderate yields. Andhra produces a wide range of terpenes , mostly floral with sour/hash like flavours and induces a cerebral high which can last for upto 1+ hour.

I have 2 of these going, each in a 5 gallon smart pot. I vegged them for 9 weeks (63 days) thinned them out and put them into flower. The info above states 18-20 weeks flower and I was told 14-16 weeks, perhaps that’s for indoor? At any right we shall see. I plan on training them as they grow, and again we shall see how that plays out. 
 

Here is the tall one

@Ilynnboy not sure. These came from the southwest of India, that I know and her stem is turning red might be cousins.

Hey brother @zoot, excited to see you growing these.  The plants look great! How are they coming along?

Thanks for sharing.

Hey @zoot 

Do you have these finished and cured?  Seems like most skip veg and just go 12/12 form start with LR sativa.  It doesn’t  look like you got any crazy stretching.  Did you expect manageable stretching?

yes they are hanging out to dry. 

i know how big they are capable of getting, but by limiting them to a 3 gal pot their ability to grow and stretch is greatly limited. I also had my HG550 leds right on top of them an another attempt to manage height. Outside in a 5 gal pot i was getting them to 8-9 feet tall, bigger pot, bigger tap root ,greater height.

That’s a great idea to keep them in smaller pots to limit stretch.  I can’t believe I didn’t think of this💡...it’s really kinda obvious. I’ve never seen anyone suggest this approach to limit stretch...just see suggestions to start under 12/12.  It would be interesting to run clones in different pot sizes to quantify the effects.  Thanks for pointing this out,  I’ll be giving it a try!

I'd love to grow some of these strains. Been looking at Indian Red Stem and can't find much info on effects, though the plants themselves are gorgeous.

How was the smoke, I'm very interested.
