    Affordable genetics...

    The previously posted here Recommendation has been revised:
    The Michigan seed chucked entity has issues with order fulfillment to deal with before their ready for a Prime Time gig, so company has been downgraded to save yourself the frustration status. :(

    Breeding seeds terminology, a pet word peave:
    I just heard that "Breading seeds" is apparently a big fad, but you'd think the oil fryer temperatures would kill the seed, who knew?
    They say they bread stuff, I have bred stuff too, I just haven't breaded any recently.
    I have breaded a chicken breast or two before but it has been awhile.

    I will certainly concur:
    Afterthought is a very good thought...
    The many happy customers with high regards for the genetics in the various threads here at ICMAG, tells me something very positive is going on in people's gardens. Awesomeness.

May throw a couple out between the tomatoes this spring, but have switched back to photoperiod fems from Nirvana, Mosca, and OG Raskal. I am so much happier with the yield and look of the frosty buds now. I will get 2 to 3 times the yield verses the smaller autos I tried the last 3 years. It looks like I'll be making butter with the remainder of last years autos, not very potent at all. Afterthought may be where it's at in autos, have not grown their strains though, but I like the guy.
    Haven't tried others, I'm surmising, BigAl? Venture out a bit....(hint!)

    It's been a l-o-n-g time since I grew out Nirvana....medium potency from what I remember. Tried Mosca....their earlier stuff (15 yrs ago) was good. Wasn't too impressed with their C99.

    Good luck with your fem grows!!!

    Regular seeds are genetically modified, hence more potent. By feminizing, you strip essential RNA from the plant. Cannabis purists say plants grown from regular seeds are stronger. We wholeheartedly agree.

    Case in point: Remember watermelons that had seeds....fresh, SWEEEET, crisp? All these years of seedless watermelons, I've yet to find one that compared to a seeded watermelon variety. Lived nearby in SO CO (recall Mr. Majestic movie, shooting up watermelons?) Farmers in La Junta, CO, Rocky Ford and Swink, CO all KNOW and swear their hemp crops, watermelon and yes, even cannabis grown with regular seeds are more tasty, potent, et.al.

    I was really interested in AfterthoughtAutos and aridbud was really cool, seems like a top guy. However, I learned it was mixed M/F beans and was looking for females.

    Still between AF or Mephisto though.

    Now with the Corona Virus, I doubt I can get genetics before I will need to plant seedlings. I look forward to trying some soon.
    Peace farmerlion
    Thanks, farmerlion!! We do what we do....ethically, honestly and forthrightly. Started with giving out beans to Vets in our mountain area (2007-2008)....back then it was MasterLow and Lowryder....along with treks to see friends in Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, bringing back their beans. Others, we sought permission to use their strains in our hybrids. Vets had little access to MMJ at that time. The rest is history.

    We still give out plants/seeds for Vets.

    Appreciate you kudos on our work. Thank you.

    I've ran chemdogging,auto triangle,ripley's og,forgotten cookies,fugue state and white chem from Mephisto and found some great plants in all but the white chem.
    1 of the most potent plants I've ever smoked was an auto triangle,only took 4/5 puffs on a joint before she had to be put down.

    Haaaaa! I remember seeing that on the forum. Funny, they chose 2 different strains....so I was happy to know our stuff is po-tent!! I suggested they do a side by side (like a NL auto)...what they had compared to a banana and an apple. Both are fruit!

    Agree...DinaFem does a good job. Kannabia is another...some say, nah, but I like their autos!
