hmmm yeah I get that but f2s are not the same as f1s. and unless you have space to do a decent pollen chuck of several males and females your only gonna see part of the gene pool. if I was gonna buy ten packs of a cross anyway, id rather buy 100 seeds for slightly cheaper than the current option which would be to pay full wack for 10, 10 seed packs. if you get me..

The market is all about what the customer prefers. Buying single seeds goes along with people thinking every seed from a given line will be the same without phenotypic differences between siblings. I think buying single seeds is a mistake if you expect to properly evaluate a given line, but if the customer only wants a single seed, we'd make it happen. For banks that are purely resellers, it becomes problematic because you have to crack the breeder's pack and then you now have an incomplete set that you can only sell out in singles.

That said, I guess we'd sell single seeds, but the price would be commensurate with the number of seeds. Think gram price, oz price, pound price per gram of flowers.
Bullshit, we the market want as many seeds for our dollar as we can get.

3 and 5 packs for feminized seeds may be the most popular in the EU, but that's not because the buyer doesn't want more seeds, it's just all the buyer can afford given the ridiculously high prices charged for feminized seeds.

And asking a seed seller for one seed, that's like someone asking their dealer for $5 of weed; no dealer wants to mess around with $5 deals.

You can purchase seed packs of 6 regular (roughly one or two keepers), or just buy some less expensive stuff. Packs of some good stuff can be had for under $50... or if you're not willing to potentially grow males and pheno hunt, get some clones.
Serious Seeds gave me support over single seeds.

Top company, indeed.

Serious seeds have great customer services but poor genetics. They always offered me replacements for the autoflower/ herm genetics I had from thier ak. The two don't really go together too well do they?

Due to worldwide prohibition, there's still a lot of people doing small personal closet grows that don't have access to clones, and because of legal risks don't want to mess with males or big pheno hunts.
Even in the "legal" areas, a lot of people have never grown before and just want to try growing a couple plants for fun and don't want to mess with males or plant #'s.
There's definitely a growing market for fem's and small packs.
Personally I want as many reg seeds per pack as I can get for more selection
