    Are these breeders worth spending the extra money on because I notice that there prices tend to stay the same on these seed banks opposed to other breeders

    lol nope garbage imo..all i see is bad reviews but i got a freebie and gave it a shot anyway..bhudda tahoe, more like bhudda no grow... it just stalled out and stopped doing anything at all at about 8 inches next to 3 other strains that were just fine that were not cc.

    damn kermit, i had the same freebie and same results..what junk...lol imo "swerve" is a joke. Ive never seen any good results at all from CC, in maybe 40 beans...lots of herms. I also heard OGR is working with swerve now so watch out for OGR as well. Ive personally grown some good ogr but seen many bad herms from him lately.

    My buddy a caregiver here in denver has a lot of fire cuts from swerves stock. Budda Tahoe, Tahoe og, white fire og, jedi kush. They are all great plants that's a bummer for those that the seeds didn't prove themselves.

    Idk all the stuff I've frown from Cali con has been great .. pre 98 bubba kush, FEMS even, and the Larry og was fire as well..
    Seen plenty of grows of his Tahoe and everyone says it's some straight fire..
    Not so sure about his newer stuff though tbh.. that's not to say swerve couldn't use some major improvements in his customer service though..

    I have had great plants from Cali Connection.

    Just go in with a buyer beware.

    I will certainly continue growing Cali Conn gear.

    I got some CC gear going right now, 91 chem I got 2 freebie 10 packs upon arrival at least 2-3 sees per pack were green and immature, I took them all out and tried popping them first knowing they would do nothing and after 2+ weeks of nada I tossed them. I popped a few others at the same time some they were just verifying what I figured would happen and the packs were free so how much can I really complain about free seeds. The next attempt at popping the 91 chem was very different. I choose 4 good looking mature looking seeds and put in wet paper towels, 3 days later as a joke I tell my wife something smartass about them and I check them and 3 of 4 had sprouted! And 2 days later the other one did as well, that was about the fastest I've ever seen beans pop. 3 of the 4 survived and are growing and doing fine looks like I have 2 different phenos but it is very early, they have not shown sex yet.

    I also popped some Jedi, good success with those and I have two different phenos, both look like sour D, kinda very sativa growth and stretch one has sativa looking leaves the other more indica looking.

    both outside so no idea if they gonna herm or not but I'm very happy with both so far.

    There is nothing wrong with fem seeds. There are things wrong with breeders. Breeders that have shit fem seeds will generally have problem reg seeds as well.

    the blue dream haze threw actual balls everywhere, like literally everywhere. i was totally underwhelmed by corleone kush. i just started the osd freebie i got, out of my love for the original sour cut, which i liked much better than the east coast cut.

    Tahoe is DANKNESS in itself.

    Age old viability test that. Smash 'em with a hammer and if they break they won't grow. If they don't smash again to make sure they're really, really viable. It works I swear. Go check it out. The smashed ones definitely don't grow.

    They are actually at the top of my list for my next order. I am really interested in 818 headband & LA Affie. They both look bomb-digity!

    Anyone ever order direct from their site?

    have you looked at the forum lately. Spam galore over there I wouldn't go thru the store would go thru the seedbanks instead.
    Cali connection to me has some of the best seed reps for og. I found plenty of nice girls growing out cc gear and tahoe was hands down the best smoker.

    Thanks for lookin out. Didnt know if it was worth it to get em direct from the breeder, but I had intended to buy em from herbies.

    Tahoe was THAT good, huh? Maybe i should add it to the list! I thought it looked good, but LA Affie was fuckin gorgeous, and the 818 really intrigued me.

    Personally I've never had a femmie go herm on me, and all have germinated. But those were all tried and true strains from proven breeders.

    well i smashed em with one of those hammers you get at the fair :D but i wish i snagged the tahoe after all the feedback. i did get the buddah tahoe, odds of scoring a tahoe leaner and a king louis leaner? i can dream...

    The Tahoe's pretty amazing, but let me tell you a little secret I just got wize to: A bud of mine just cropped his Rascal's OG from CC. So far he reckons he can't tell it from the Tahoe, not as far as smell or resin goes. But it yields a fuktonne more...

    Yeah not a noob's plant to grow, but once it goes it GOES. Quite stretchy and a bit leggy, but makes up for it in pure power that's for sure.

    Not a good buy if you grow from seed. A ten-pack averages 2 girls. So definitely for those of us that keep mums and clones, and growing 10 plants for 8 weeks to find those two girls is a pain in the ass. BIGTIME. If you plant only 5 then you're not guaranteed a girl.

    So for that and a few reasons, I have a feeling the Tahoe will remain a pretty exclusive smoke, and IF you do find it to buy you're going to pay through your teeth...
