Exaclly. Also lagit seed banks don't have a tone of strains to chose from unless they are getting supplied from well known seed banks or people who want to get their strains out. Another thing is a seed bank that charges $50 for 10 to 15 seeds and is well known then a new seed bank with strains that haven't been heard of before with a higher price tag is worth spending $50 on the 10 to 15 seeds.Agreed with Toolage. Watch out for seed sites that look slapped together last minute!
What's so bad about sticking to the handful of big names we all know and trust. Seeds aren't cheap and I don't think you should put yourself in the position of experimental test subject, because those couple bucks you save could end up being the worst decision ever.
I wish we had a thread that talked about the pros and cons of ordering from newer seedbanks. I know I'm relatively new on the forums so if such a thread exists, I don't know about it.
The biggest and most probable con for the list anyway is that: which of these just slapped together seed banks are actually sting operations to catch the less wary. I read in the news those types of ops were being set up.
More like watch out for seedbanks that have the same strains and also same pics and such as other seed banks.keep your eyes open for seedbanks whose gear is exactly the same as nirvanas, but more expensive, i've seen 2 seedbanks repackaging nirvana $25 gear for $50 and even $75!
Sorry to hear your bad luck.I live in USA and I have tried many different seed banks and never had a problem until now. BCBUDDEPOT. I ordered GOD BUD 4 months ago I guess or close to 4 months. I waited a month and a half the first time and I received nothing. I emailed and emailed them and never got a reply. Then I called and was directed to a guy named Jason. Wow! what a Jerk!. He answered the phone with an attitude. Maybe he should work for attitude seeds. He said that the reason that they never replied to my email was that they had a guy in customer service that they had to fire because he was not doing his job correctly. But the whole conversation he had a very negative tone. He said he would reship and this is months later and I never received anything. I know that shit happens but I have never failed to receive my package from attitude or Nirvana. NEVER and I have ordered many times. The second time I called about this he was even more rude. He said I could give him a different address which I was going to do but then he kept fussing and being rude like I was trying to scam him. Please! I know how to create my own seeds and I don't need his cannabis winning strains. It means nothing to me. I finally said just forget it. This dude really has problems. TGA has been very good to me as well as sannies and nirvana and attitude. But this company BCBUDDEPOT is a joke and waisted my time. I don't even care about the money. I told him this. The money is not what bothers me. It is people that take advantage of other people. This is what makes me mad. God bless the USA. I pray that people will love each other. Peace!
Maybe you should wait not only to see how your Nirvana gear turns out, but also how you later finds it compares to the gear of good breeders like Scott Blakey (AKA Shantibaba), Paradise Seeds, Sannie, Dr. Greenthumb, Sensi Seeds, Serious Seeds, De Sjamaan, DJ Short and a handful others before you give "Big plus signs for Nirvana."First time hydro grower. First post. Ordered seeds from Nirvana-shop. Then had regrets after reading some bad posts. Happy to say I received seeds no problem today, less than a week shipping time to USA. One seed is soaking right now! So excited grow a plant! Big plus signs for Nirvana!.
Sativa Seedbank is a part of Nirvana. Funnily enough this is the part that has all the Sativa strains Like Nirvana they have a pretty wide selection, but it seems that most of their strains are based around the same 2-3 landrace genetics. In all fairness to them though they are usually very clear on the lineage of the strains that they sell. Their Blackjack is an excellent strain (sativa dominant hybrid), If you are after a Pure Sativa (or as close as it gets) try the Full Moon, but be warned it is a real bitch to get the most out of as it will curl up its toes and die at the slightest problem. Other than that the only point i would add is not to be mislead by the names they give their strains, Their Jock horror for example has nothing to do with Jack herer etc.I apreciate all the advice fellas..ive been hearing sum good things about sativa seeds and high quality seeds...anyone know about them??
