Indica/Sativa: 85/15

All 10 seeds germinated and grew healthy, 8 were female.

Shiva stayed very short with tight internodes during vegitative growth. It grew about 2.5X in height between switching to 12/12 and finish. The plant grew a very large top cola and a very thick stem; it needed no sup

There were not any major problems during veg or flower stage, but this strain really loves humidity during early veg phase. This strain was very bushy and had loads of branches. If you are looking for a strain to grow out a mother plant, this will give loads of clones.

The odor on this strain was very fruity during the flowering stage but went a little more sweet and heavy to the end. The yield was about 40 grams of nice trich covered bud. The buds were really icy and looked inviting. This is an excellent bubblehash strain.

After a week of drying and 10 days of cure, I sampled this bud. The smell is really overwhelming sweet and hashy. The fruitiness is all but gone now.

The taste is very sweet. Not fruity sweet, but more hash heavy. A hint of vanilla? The high is really energetic. This is a perfect wake & bake herb. All in all this is a nice strain that I'll grow again, no doubt.
