    I've run HSO fems, purpl train wreck and 707 headband only 1 seed of each cracked open. 707 was a great plant we will see about the p train wreck it's in veg now. Not going to waste any more $$ on HSO gear.

    This was the only thread I could find that seemed relevant, and I wanted to share.
    Reserva Privada Cole train @14 weeks from sprout (I run 12/12 from seed) I have run this strain twice now. I've read some negative reviews here on RIU but received these as freebies from the tude back in 2013 I think. I really enjoyed it the first time, and I am really enjoying it this time around as well. The smell is soft and a bit sour, almost like a certain dryer sheet or fabric softener. I removed an entire main branch with some lowers to make room a few weeks back so ive had a chance to sample the early stuff. mellow effect but not very tasty yet, but the smoke has a very identifiable aroma that is distinct and pleasant.

    I've grown lots of HSO gear and have never been disappointed. I have BD, Truthband, Sour Blueberry, and Trainwreck going right now. There are undoubtedly more potent strains out there, but these fly off the shelf for me, no problem.

    Agreed a lot of people just like to hate. I’ve found plenty of fire with HSO

    None of what this person grew is actually what they bought. The reason they are not disappointed is that they don't know what the real deal is like. Anybody who buys X strain from HSO while knowing what X strain is supposed to be would be disappointed, the same way anybody who bought a fake Rolex made in China would be disappointed if they thought they were buying a real one.

    Hating fraud is normal. You're supposed to hate people who steal from you. You maybe had "fire", but you didn't get what you paid for. You got something that is worth virtually nothing when sold elsewhere.

    I don't know why anyone would defend criminals who steal from people or pretend that this is somehow ok. They deserve jail time.

    They arent selling clones they are selling seeds. Seeds have variation that’s how genetics work. So no you aren’t growing the exact clone only but you may find a representation of it within those genetics or you may find something totally different but still fire. They work with good breeders such as bio vortex. I think it’s funny how people knock them but then praise other breeders for doing the same thing.

    You have some sort of beef with these people? Your rant makes no sense. There is no fraud happening, there hasn't been a single mention of people sending money and not getting beans from these people. So no criminal actions or whatever your crying about. So the genetics didn't live up to your expectations, get over it. Many have written they found plants they do in fact like.

    Pretty spot on Red. My DOG was good smoke but low yielding so I canned it after a few times around.

    As for RP/DNA I think they changed their pics a few years back on the Attitude and that's how I found out about it. I looked around a bit and all the info I could come up with was that there was a bust and the moms were taken/killed.The original OG#18 was above and beyond what they have now. What I would do if I still had that hanging around now. Would be worth a fortune. Such is life :blsmoke:

    I have about 30 seeds from the original Lemon OG Kush from DNA. One of them hermed and hit all the others in my tent. Same thing happened with RP's original OG#18. I have about 30 seeds of those also. Got to be a winner in there somewhere :blsmoke:

    I really did love that OG 18 taste and wish I had kept it around even though it wasn't a heavy producer, lots of stretch but delicious. If you just wanted to dispose of those poor hermied seeds I would be willing to experiment with them :D Seems like the older school DNA and RP had less issues but that could just be my experience. The Lemon hasn't hermied on me and I have had her around a long time probably my favorite all around plant, great high, good flavor, grows fairly fast, short flower 55 days or so, easy to trim, clones easy and quickly roots. What more can you ask for.

    I was a very bad cloner. All my clones always died during cloning so I always had to restart stuff. I did a full Lemon OG and OG#18 run in separate tents about 8 years ago and kept the seeds from the buds I smoked. I was able to run the keepers from those 2 plants for about 10 months and then the last of the clones died. I knew one day I would try those seeds again but I haven't had the time.

    Can't interrupt my Goji, SS#4, Lemon Hashplant and LA Sage now could I? :blsmoke:

    Hi Budman, I use a 600W HPS (and i have another small tent with ~160watts of COBs) --The reason i run 12/12 is mostly that I have limited space. I will often have new sprouts starting at the same time as mature plants are finishing. I don't really have the luxury of excess space for large plants as well so vegging makes little sense. I also like variety so I don't typically run plants that finish at the same time even if they do all happen to start at the same time. I have always found great results with 12/12 it tends keeps most* plants smaller

    That's llke saying no fraud happens when you get a fake Rolex for the price of a real Rolex because you're getting a watch either way.

    The criminal actions are pretending to be American. Pretending to be based in the US. Selling fakes for the price of real strains.

    Maybe read the thread before commenting.

    They are selling seeds advertised as popular Californian strains bred by Californian breeders. They are Spanish and they sell random bullshit.

    Nobody here praised breeders for false advertising and selling fakes. There is no representation in there. They just advertise random strains as popular clone only strains to rob people. You can buy the same crap at 5 dollars a pack.

    It's weird how much crooks are defended in these threads. No matter how much they steal, you always have a bunch of people saying it's ok. You're arguing that having a 1/100 chance of finding something that isn't complete shit in what is supposed to be a nearly 100% uniform strain somehow makes it ok that they lie about what they sell and who they are.

    It's not fucking ok. It's an actual crime. If they were selling watches and not seeds, they would all be serving 5 to 10. It's disgusting. They're bad people for doing it. Crooks like them make us all look bad.

    If they work with breeders like biovortex, that makes biovortex an accomplice to fraud, it does not make their fakes real.

    Maybe you need to go re-read the thread. You seem to be the only person stuck up on this fraud issue and having so much hate towards them.
