Congrats! You picked some of their best stuff, for sure!

I don't know why, but they often have different releases in different regions. Today's US release does not have Fugue State, we had that weeks ago and I missed it. Each week there are either no strains or maybe one strain I'm interested in, Fugue State was one I really wanted. In my opinion, it's an amazing genetic combination, especially since the person I grow for likes extra potent Sativa dominant strains. I look forward to growing it someday, I hope you'll let us know how that one goes.
Fugue State is the bomb!!!

Can't get that anywhere else than Mephisto... That's why I don't look anywhere else... One day the planets will align and the WORLDWIDE store will be available to us all again...

If Mephisto become much smaller and much less popular...then their store will be stocked like the old days. When a company gets bigger and more popular...their infrastructure can't keep up and the system crashes...As a solution they sell through distribution. Look at it like buying a Sony TV. You're more likely to buy from a distributor (like Best Buy) then you are to try to buy it direct on the Sony site. It's a more efficient system that way for everyone.

As a fan of Mephisto I want them to concentrate on producing great seeds. Fixing problem orders and crashed servers only takes away from that. I've seen lots of companies fail because they lost their focus. I was concerned for a while that the crashes and problems with orders put them out of business. I'm glad they came up with a solid business plan. The best way to support Mephisto...and keep them viable...is to buy through their distributors.

Probably never...
Exactly. The idea that it's worth the clown show to try to get lucky and only order from them for some untested, F/S1 freebies that will never be made to buy on the regular is stupid. Why care about a strain you can grow 1 or 2 times (unless you get lucky and have all 5 seeds germ) over a stable strain that you can grow over and over if it's good? Seems quite ridiculous to me me to even suggest that's why you order directly from them anymore.

Just curious, do think Daz's stuff is quality? I think he sells lots of F1's, some he even proudly calls "true F1" in the official descriptions. I'm on the fence on this. For a while, I was totally put off by F1's, even with the supposed "hybrid vigor" thing. But apparently there is a right way to do it. I certainly wouldn't try crossing them with something else, that'd be a waste of time (from what I've read).

Yeah i think his stuff looks good. Already bought Galaxy Brain and Wizord's Apprentice to try after my Mango Smile. It's not the F1 that's the issue. His strains will be regularly made and eventually stable like some of his are F4. Those Mephisto freebies that people care so much for are 1 and dones. Why should you care more for those than the actual strains that make the company? Seems foolish every time i see a redditor or RIU say it's about those freebies of why they only oreder directly from their site.

For me it's the combination of the freebies and the fact that a 3-pack bought directly from them has 5 seeds in it, together that makes a real difference. So yeah, it's been a time suck and unnecessarily stressful to buy from them directly, but I guess to me it's worth it. I've been lucky, except for this last Monday when the site went completely down, every time I've tried I've gotten something. Also, for some reason all of the banks that I've gone to for Meph seeds either don't take CC's, only have overpriced 7 packs, or require I send a picture of my photo ID and CC, and I won't do that. So far for me, seed banks haven't been an alternative.

The Night Owl strain that tempted me was Spotless Mind, I love the combination (Fugue State x Cosmic Queen). I've got some STS, I understand how random making my own F1's can be (pretty much zero pheno selection, just hit or miss), but starting this winter I'm thinking I'll make some of my own "freebies", and then try a SOG, 1/2 homemade freebies and 1/2 Meph freebies, and see how they compare.

Their store was open this morning...not much of a selection...grabbed a few packs to trade with my friend who likes autos.

Glad you had a good experience. Mine sucked ass. 1/3 germination and the survivor was a weird-growing, droopy-leaved unhappy camper that ended up flavorless, even in the exact same living soil that everything I've ever put in it (including several other Mephisto and Night Owl autos) thrives in. Kinda strongish buzz but only the slightest little hint of citrus smell all the way through flower and a taste like dirty air.

At the odd Thursday drop I picked up some of my 'holy grail' strain, Cosmic Queen. The only other strain I really wanted (but missed a while back) was Fugue State... and now I think I'm OK with that.

So I'm done with drops and server crashes for a while. I have enough seeds for a long time. I'm at that crossroads, where no rational person would buy more seeds, and if I find myself hitting that 'purchase' button, then I know I've slipped into a place a few degrees shy of healthy.
