    Best to avoid

    Here's a place to post criticisms or warnings for others. It sucks that this is the first thread in the forum but I feel compelled to share my story.

    Total Grow Control and subsequently Soleil software.

    Their terrible software associated with their complete lack of knowledge in growing just cost me my job. I would avoid them at all costs. Friendly on the surface but if you're in the business you need brains to back it up. None of these entities have any.

    And I know what I'm good at and bad at. I can unselfishly say I'm a smart and sober person. What they sell is a perfect machine-it does what you tell it to. But you will never be perfect and certainly never more perfect than it. And if you're a serious grower, you know that standardizing a grow is quite rare indeed. You never run the same grow twice.

    Their inability to recognize where and when employees will fall short and still have the back of the doser is a detriment. At least to me. I had to work ten times harder just to get a bad result with their systems.

    Please post your horror stories so that others may be warned.
    Tell the people you love that you love them.

    These people suck, their seeds do not germinate. I ordered 10 Amnesia. 2 germed and grew in to nice plants with a good high. 8 were duds. I ordered once more giving them a second chance. This time I ordered 5 seeds. NONE germinated for me. That is it for me. They did not give a shit when I told them of my woes. https://www.growerschoiceseeds.com/
    I do not know what is wrong here but stay the fuck away!!!!

        Nope. I had the fill valve in manual off and it still flooded the grow. If it was truly manual control, It wouldn't have mixed ml 1.

                Sorry to hear. I turned in Bud Aroma in California sending info (sans MY information) to the California Attorney General.

                Their web site is now down after ripping off hundreds of customers.

                If I recall Grower's Choice is not a USA seed site?

                  Avoid Ed Rosenthal he'll go all California Chainsaw Massacre on your crop. Then he'll stick it in a freezer so it still tastes like nutes in 6 months.
                  For the last time, I'm pretty sure what's killing the crops is this Brawndo stuff.

                    Their webpage says they guarantee 90% germination, but then if you read the actual fine print you have to photograph yourself following their exact germination instructions or they won't honor that. Who the hell photographs themselves planting seeds? Also apparently they are physically based in the western US, but advertise heavily in Canada for some reason? Oh yeah and nobody else seems to have good germination rates with them. Seems like a poor company all around.
                    You may not vote on any more threads today.
                    Don't sweat the technique.
                    And honestly. My fuck ups turn to gold so much the thought of fuckin up don't even bother me. So I keep it auto when I'm stepping through a portal. I know that sounds strange but, strange beats normal.

                      ^^^ Just avoid or boycott them. Plenty of ethical breeders and sites to order from these days!
