    The Seed Bank Catalog #03 1987

    The last catalog from the Seed Bank and shows "1986/1987 Edition" but was postmarked in Sept 1985. Possibly it was because they were accelerated for their time. :hubba:

    The Seed Bank Catalog #02 1986

    Their second catalog was disappointing compared to the first color catalog. Both SSSC and The Seed Bank put out copy-paper editions of their second catalogs.

    SSSC Genetics to SickMeds Seeds

    Hoped the board might permit a personal announcement about some old rare genetics potentially being reborn. In the late 1980's I was a US shipper for an Amsterdam seed company named The Super Sativa Seed Club (SSSC). When the SSSC went dark at the end of the 80's I kept a portion of the...

    Now that summer is over and cold air becomes available for free again, I have been revisiting my lights-off temperature in the flower room. Could folks chime in and mention what their best target temp is during lights out in a flower room? I usually aim for the low 60's or high 50's.

    Did anyone go to the last Spannabis in Barcelona?

    Hoped that someone in the forum might have actually attended the last Spannabis in Barcelona? I've looked through all the Youtuve videos from the convention and can't seem to find any footage of one breeder who had a booth there. Thought that if I was lucky someone here might have been and...

    Why do my clones take longer to root than other people?

    Up until recently I thought I cornered the trophy for "Worst Cloning Person of All Time". Over the years I tried just about every hormone and technique on the market and always felt I must be missing something. High humidity/low humidity, warming mat/no warming, distilled water/tap water, 18...

    Bummed: more bad seed from Attitude - bad Kaliman!

    I am so bummed out. Planned for a "Great American Cheese Off" using Kaliman Cheese, Kaliman Rockstar, and HFS Cheese. Ordered the beans (and some Paradise Seeds Twilight) from Attitude. Once again, maybe the 4th or 5th time from Attitude, the seeds are simply bad. The Kaliman Cheese #1...

    BBC: How can you spot a cannabis farm in your street?

    The BBC helps to track down covert grows - or helps growers avoid tracking, depending on your perspective: hXXp:// Although the same things might help you find a brothel, an addicted computer gamer's house, or a spy's communications outpost on your very...

    Satori grow #1

    After hearing so many wonderful things about Mandala's Satori here on MP from THG, I couldn't resist trying some. This has not been my best grow (no fault of the strain) but definately not my worst. A pack of 10 was wetted on 9/12/11, yielding 8 germinated and 2 terminal. Each was put into...

    What's happened to Homegrown Fantaseeds?

    At Attitude most of the strains bred by Homegrown Fantaseeds are now out of stock or discontinued. I wrote Attitude to ask why, was told only "give your email address to be notified when back in stock" (i.e. they did not read my message). Wrote HF and asked the same question - no answer...
