I'll say this much in reflection on the topic - for a pack of seeds, it's really hard to beat some of the offerings from Top Dawg - IF - you really know what to look for. I like Chem/OG lines - and the FAM95 - is basically a heavily worked chem line with a slight touch of OG. The pheno I've kept is representative of that.

It's one of the best plants I've ever run from seed - or ever personally found. The first round, the seed run, was taken at 9wks and that was just too early. A few days longer and she's taken some color and entered senescence - a truly started to ripen and be fully mature flower. I can't wait to smoke her this time.

I had 7 females. I kept 3. One wanted to run past 12wk and while very unique - just had some aspects I didn't care for in the high - and I got the same feedback from my respected crew, so I culled one. I still have a second keeper from these seeds. #2 (pictured) and #7. #7 - is less chem specific and more stardawg - and that's almost saying the same thing - but still not. #7 tends to consistently increase libido - to the point, it's a running joke. Sort of stupid to cull a plant that gets your lady worked up - I don't care what it's called - THAT is a keeper in my book. LOL.

I have an unpopular opinion when it comes to what seeds cost vs their true value. The right seed...is priceless. I acquired the FAM95, directly from JJNYC and MoneyMike in Boston in 2019. It was a single pack of 11 seeds. 9 sprouted. One dampened off due to over watering. I killed one being a careless brute. The 7 remaining we female. I do not plan to let go of the FAM95 #2 cut any time soon...or at all, ever. She's elite level and I have a way to test that theory. I'll keep you posted.

Regardless. Would I pay $250 for a cut of this particular plant blindly - nope. If I saw a jar, was able to break it up, and take a rip of the flower - then yes. I'd pay, up to, what a pound of her grown out for top shelf would cost me retail. That's 16 x 8 x 60 - if you follow the math - that's $7,680. So to be more literal, I could in my mind, after seeing, handling, smoking this flower, rationalize shelling out $5k for a cut.

If the point is to have it forever, then it is in fact absolutely worth every penny. A penny saved is a penny earned and eventually that purchase will translate to savings.

From that angle, seeds might be a bit of a gamble and still on the higher end of the price scale for the market - but for $250 - I just got a steal. Long story short - seeds are worth the risk. Well bred genetics with specific goals in mind that have been worked a few generations towards that goal - are still, priceless. Especially, if they produce true keepers.

well put dank.frank ! I know your one hell of a critic when it comes to selecting keepers and not many make it past the chopping block so that speaks volume on the FAM95! :joint: :tiphat:

Top Dawg Seeds - FAM95 - Familia x I95 - my pheno from seed on her 2nd round at nearly 10 wks under Mars Hydro 2 x SP3000 in water only organic soil. This girl is on another level.

Beautiful plant Frank.
Agree with your logic on the value of a pack of seeds to.
Try to put a price on a plant you can have the rest of your life that will make it better every single day.
The key is VALUE, not PRICE.
