I still say seedsman is the most reliable. I like canuk seeds too.
I dunno, I bought off them once and it got delivered, not to mention it took ages, and the quality was kind of so-so. Tried ILGM, not happy about it too. Tried some local folks near me, they sell good clones but awful seeds. Tried Herbies, they are good. Perhaps the prices are not the lowest, but the seeds were indeed good, and they do deliver, as well as if you got fucked they will reply to you unlike seedsman, and they will try doing something for you and not just ignore, so I'd say try Herbies. But I guess your case was much better than mine

Multiverse or Canuk Seeds? Canuk Seeds site prices are pretty high, I hope Multiverse are not selling old stock like Greybeard, never again with them.

Just tried a new seed bank, Iced Out Genetics from Battle Creek Michigan. I had been looking to replace Humboldt Seed Organization 707 Headband, HSO no longer produces it. I found the exact genetics from Iced Out. Great selection, good prices and speedy Service. Check them out, they also sell flower on the web site and it is a little tricky switching from flower to seeds.

As far as I can tell they are not breeders & sell what they call "copy cats" of popular seeds from other actual breeders, struck me as pretty sketchy & I don't trust them, bought a gram of Durban Poison from them as a tester, it tasted like shit & seemed like it might have been laced with something.

They say on their site that they are copy cat and I hope they are because I have been growing HSO 707 for over 10 years and I can no longer get it, it is my all time favorite. Over the years the HSO has genetically drifted, it was still good but wasn't as good as it was 10 years ago I am hoping this may be like the original. All commercial weed tastes like shit not as bad as the early 70s Mexican and Columbian though. That's why I grow my own. The secret is in the growing, drying and curing.

But this was squashed as flat as piece of gum on a the sidewalk & was the same consistency pretty much & gave a weird buzz.

That was the same thing that people told me about Blimburn seeds, that they were White Label, Copy Cat . I just harvested their version of Headband. It is excellent, so smooth and sweet. It makes you float.

Blimburn has more of a rep honestly, & don't sell weed obviously BTW, if you research Iced Out Genetics, which I did, you will find out about the guys sketchy past. In addition they were very unresponsive when I questioned them about seeds, & weed for that matter. Do what you want but I wouldn't trust them, there are so many more reputable venders to buy from.

Not Greybeard, of 3, 2 popped, one died & the third is a weird runt, Greybeard sucks over all though.

I will let you know after I grow the 707 Headband and let you know how it is. I found out it's hit or miss with all of them. I bought Bahama Berry from Sofire genetics it hermied like a bitch, 37 nanners on one plant even though I took all the precautions and the yield sucked

I've bought from blimbur, kera seeds, humboldt, powerstrains and greenhouse seed company. Greenhouse seed company were the best but for the price i rather buy a house brand. But you are probably right they are also hit and mis. When I started growing (more then 10 years ago) i had a much better succesrate germinating my seeds and its not that i got worse at growing.

I had the worst succes rate with blimbur 0 out of 3 seeds popped which is sad because now my granddady purple is from powerstrains and i would have like the original breeders variant because of its high thc content.

When you germinate do you use a heat mat set at 80°~ 85° ?

I put them in a glass with some water in and then place the glas in a heated propegator it gets around 80 degrees in the propogator and the temp is pretty stable trougouth the entire day because . When i started I would just put them in the soil and all of them would pop and become healthy seeds since i started growing again i have used rockwool cubes, rootit plugs and jiffys but getting them to pop works best in a glas of water in my opinon and then transplant in presoaked rockwool.

I knew a guy on a different forum and he would throw his seeds in a pan and heat them a bit until they popped worked great for him but i dont know if its cost effective if you buy premium seeds. people also have allots of succes with peroxide i gues the extra oxygen helps protect the tine fresh root against rot.
