Thanks to Shantibaba right off.. Site looks great! :cool:

Wanted to put up some pics on the new site and see how ya'lls turned out too..

This one was very different than my expectations. After running the Mango Haze (pure dankness) I thought I knew what I was getting into.
This is my favorite out of 10 I dropped. She tastes like mango/orange hard candy lollypops to the tee. One of the tastiest I have in a vape. The high is what I really get into tho. It sends my mind wandering, not as intense as the MH does because there's more body in it but the best part is laughing :p .. Every time I smoke the Mdub, as I lovingly refer to her, I get silly.
To be sure I smoked it with friends and didn't tell them anything about it. 10 minutes later everyone was telling jokes and reminiscing.
So at first i was alittle concerned with the apparent lack of Haze smell but I guess it blends different with the Widow. No complaints here ;), it was a welcomed and tasty surprise. My bar is crazy high when it comes to new additions too..


Id love to see what other people have found so lets see em..
All the best,
RO

P.S.
I cant seen to upload even the smallest pics for some reason.. Anyone else have these problems? I have pics that were taken at .3 mp and it still says too big. Tried to u/l from gallery too and got error message: Unable to Move file...

High Roasted O,
I grew out the MW last season and was highly impressed ...btw i just planted three seed and got a smashing lady that is not onlt sweet to the palate ,but very mind soaring and clean...I tested it with some very seasoned old timers and they where wonderfully impressed and as you say,its a happy up sweet pleasure ...all should give her a go...

mine also yields very nice too...solid and frosty..

you can see it if you click on Mango Widow at this site...

peace

Hey RoastedO i read in another thread that the pics problem will be rectified soon,hope that helps a bit. Your buds sound sweet,this is a bit off topic but just as you mention the orange flavour,i remember reading somewhere on another canna forum that there was a MNS Strain called Shanti's Orange but i have never been able to get any info on it maybe Shanti could say if this strain actually existed or not ...? Take Care RoastedO and nice to meet you...Hashish

Ill drop some pics soon..
All the best,

Thanks Scorpion! I wish I could use the big bulb in the sky so bad. Its one of my motivators tho. I bet the M'Dub would do awesome outside, she'd need some support tho :D.. I bet she'd be a monster..

Heres a pic I dug up, just about finished there.

Hopefully some others will jump in and show their finds too..

All the best,
RO

Sexy ladies!

Hey RoastedO

Those are some seriously sexy ladies.:eek: I'd love to see some more pics if you can find any.

mango/orange hard candy lollypops
Sound like they taste as good as they look.:p

I've got a pack of these in the fridge patiently waiting their turn. I think they might have just bumped up a couple of places on the list.;)

Have you got any grow tips for Mango x Widow? Do they stretch much? Do they need much feeding during flower?

cheers

twitchy:)

Thats 1 sexy lady layin out in the sun you got there JessE!
How'd she turn out for ya?
All the best,
RO

She was a pleasure to smoke, I was quite impressed with her overall. The best outdoor plant I had in '06 for sure. Ive not seen a negative report on this variety at all. From what Ive seen, read and experienced this is once again another top of the line variety shanti and company are producing. It is safe to say that Im a fan of the Mango Widow. Ive got some of them going right now as a matter of fact. Keep up the good work guys, these pictures of the Mango Widow speak for themselves.

Thanks twitchy! Some stretched alot. The keeper for me about doubles in height after the switch and triples in girth. She doesn't get tall per say as some of sisters did but she still gets real big.. I have found to my surprise, that that one I kept likes to be fed. Im very very far from a heavy feeder, I like my smoke to be super flushed and almost %100 organic. (I still use Age Old Organics, so no Im not %100 :p) She lets you know pretty quick when you underfeed :)..
Just make sure you put down as many as you can to select from and you'll find something real nice.
Let us know when you pop em :cool: ..
All the best,
RO
Hey RO

You found an even better picture!:D Beautiful buds and the lighting makes it look as though she's basking under a red sunset lol.

Got another couple of questions if you don't mind...

I'm guessing you've got a prized mango x widow mother from what you've said.

How tall are the clones when you start flowering and what height are they by harvest?

How many days flowering does your mango x widow take? Would you say this is a fair representation of the other plants you grew from seeds?

Nice one

twitchy

(ps. enjoyed your smoke report, especially "social liability factor". I know this feeling well!)
