So no need to pass them out to everyone and Im sorry you dont understand the point of not selling them.
Also, Im sorry you dont understand the importance of keeping these landraces out of the hands of those who would patent them, like corporations, thus making most hybrids fall under their patent.
ACE is shady as fuck, sorry that you havent been keepingup on wjat Musta and I have been saying.
Reeferman too. He sold Congo that is really NL x Congo x mexi x affy but said its Congo landrace.
Only those who know, know.
The level of entitlement - everyone thinking they have the right to be sold or given landraces - is beyond tiring.
Feel free to pay a lot of momey for Coastal's Panama hybrid x hashplant that he calls a Panama landrace.
Maybe you dont understand the detriment that placing monetary value on landraces has on the purity of landraces. By making landraces valuable, it gets shady people to take a hybrid and sell it as a landrace, thus muddying the genetic pool.
Go ahead and buy Bangi Haze from ACE, which is NL x Congo x mexi x affy x white widow.... but dont ever think or pass it off as being Congo landrace x Nepalese landrace.
Ive got a lot of enemies in the community for taking genetic purity so seriously, but you know who's not my enemy? The plant.
Good luck on your journey
Did ace know what the Congo they were getting was? even if Ace murdered puppies I would believe them over anything Reeferman said or did.
I wouldn't call them shady, it's usually clear what the types of genetics they are offering, they are not in the landrace game, they are clear about that.
the panama is clearly sold as an hybrid of panamanian strains, I see no mention of it being a landrace.
