  1. Growing Hindu kush outdoor this year its turning out great if you wait till october the cooler nights bring out the Purple in it

  2. I love this strain for it taste, high and how easy it is to grow in the mountains. My plants average 7 ft tall, which i wouldnt call short!

  3. Patrick. do a search for the makeup of the soil in the region you are looking for. It is not just the soil. It is real hot in the light, and real cold at night. It is in the mountains. all this plays into the strain as well as soil composition. you should be able to find a few sample doind a seach. Good Luck.

  4. Growing both Hindu and Afghan this year as well as cloning.
    What I’m searching for is the soil Composition to Match-up the area of the Kush mountain range…any help?

  5. I can’t believe nobody has written a comment. anyway this is my go to strain. I love the taste so I decided to grow some. 4 plants outdoors 2 in pots and two in the soil just to compare. the soil ones are doing better and look like they will deliver a lot more than 16oz per plant. there are I’m sure lots of strains that deliver similar effects but I always go back to this because of the taste. it has a slight hash taste which I love. i’ts like smoking the old hash combined with a super potent woody pine taste. just great. it does give you the munchies and definitely makes you sleepy but at the same time sends you into deep thinking
