Fwiw, we put together all plates except the practitioners' and remainders prior to the beginning of the ganapuja at both Nyingma centers I go to. I think this may be just an acceptable time saver when a huge group of people is involved.

ChNNR mentions that one can do a very abbreviated ganapuja with just a bit of food and wine. My question is, is it acceptable to make offerings to the 3 roots and guardians (including worldly guardians) - multiplying the offerings through visualization, and then eating it? Or if doing the full offering to guardians, should there always be a separate plate?
as a footnote to that question, is the offering plate to the 3 roots also what is offered to the worldly guardians?
