Im new to the cultivating world of Cannabis. When I first started, I was wary of where to buy my first seeds. Mostly because I didnt want to get ripped-off. Anyway, I was on this site, that served as a library for Cannabis strains. There they had an icon you could click on, if you wanted that particular seed. It led me into buydutchseeds.com.

Now, this was my problem. I live in America, and not in a state that has decriminalized Cannabis yet. In fact, its one if the more stricter states. Furthermore, I still had the fear, of getting ripped-off. I started doing research, and found no complaints about them. Also, I was using a CC. So if worst comes to worst, I can always chargeback. I ordered 10 Diesel seeds & 10 White Rhino seeds. The site said, "for deliveries to America, expect 1-3 week delay". Fine, I get it. So, I ordered, and started the waiting process. 5 days after I ordered I received my seeds in the mail. :)
Very happy. It came in an unassuming package; really cute.

Now, here is the fun part. Every site, book, and video I read, told me to expect the following. Out of 10 seeds, expect only 8 to germinate. Out of 8, expect 6 to be healthy sprouts. Out of 6 sprouts, expect only 3 to be females. LOL, this is the reason I bought so many seeds, right. All 20 germinated. Some took 1 day. Some took 5, but they all germinated. Out of 20, 17 reached the Vegey stage. Some are large, and some are runts, but they are healthy. NOw, the reason some runts are, because I only have a 600w HPS bulb, and under the table I have 6 CFL's. Im happy that so many germinated, at the same time. I had no idea where to put them. Right now they are cramped. I just started the Flowering stage this morning. In a week they should show signs of gender. I will be able to get rid of some. I also Cloned 5 of the more healthier looking plants. I numbered them, since I dont know what they are yet. If its parent is a male, I can just take it out. Hoping for good females.

As far as buydutchseeds.com, the only problem I have is; they are a bit limited. They have a lot of strains, but some of the one's I was looking for to grow next. They dont have. I wrote them, and they said " they are planning to expand there inventory in the future. So, I like there response. Usually companies like this, tend to be a bit set on there ways. They seem open minded, though. Next thing I will buy from them is 10 afghans & 10 blue cheese. This time I will be prepared. :hubba:

Arty why don't you try reading the rules to this forum before you go and spam us like this? No live links allowed and the fact that your very first post here was as a shill for a seed bank makes your review of them nothing more then Dog Farts.

I looked at the rules. there is no rule against posting a link. Only if a rep tells you to cease, then you cant. Stop being a troll.

These forums are meant to help people find things. finding a good seed site. I dont see the problem. A person can read it, and judge for themselves.

No Artycannabis you posting live links in your first post show you do not have enough respect for a site to read it's rules before posting on it.

You links are still alive

14. You will, if asked by a representative of the Forums, cease posting any content, and/or links to content, deemed inappropriate by the staff of the Forums.

Really? You sign up here and make your very first post one praising some seed bank and I am the troll? Yeah okay tool. You want to plug your crappy seed bank then pay MarP for advertising like the Attitude does. It's weasels like you that ruin it for people who actually post fair and accurate reviews of seed banks. No way no how do I think your very first post was this and you are not somehow affiliated with them...you got a lil somethin something on your chin brosef. I wld get up off your knees and maybe grab a toothbrush and some mouthwash.

Thanx, Hick. See I went directly to site rules. Now, had this person posted this link, rather then being a bitter troll about it. I would have gladly removed it. Anyway, guess you just cant speak to some people. Thats what ignore button are made for, lol.

Let's all go smoke a fatty.

Actually.......there is nothing in the Site Rules that says that you cannot post direct links. The reason that we "request" no direct links is that many will not click on them since they could take you anywhere. It is simply safer.

Unfortunately when someone's first post looks like Spam....well, we all tend to get a little quick to judge. No need to be throwing the TROLL term around--we all love Hammy (I want to see you in your brown shorts).

Arty--I don't know where you got THIS: "Every site, book, and video I read, told me to expect the following. Out of 10 seeds, expect only 8 to germinate. Out of 8, expect 6 to be healthy sprouts. Out of 6 sprouts, expect only 3 to be females." But it simply is not true. Most reputable seed banks you can get 10 for 10 germination--in fact I expect it. Also, 1/2 of these should be female. Nothing special happened here--you got 10 for 10 germination. Good for you on your first try, but this does not make the seedbank special. We do try to patronize Attitude as it is one of our sponsors (they have GREAT selection AND generally we get our seeds in a week or 10 days).

In addition, I do not know how long you vegged these, but they will not show sex until they are sexually mature--something that generally takes 6 weeks or so--do you have alternating nodes? If you have thrown these into 12/12 prematurely, you can expect them to stretch (different than real growth).

I'm confused--I don't quite understand your set up at all...."only have a 600 HPS BULB (do you have a whole light setup or just a bulb?) and under the table (what table?) 6 CFLS???" How are you running this? Do you have a space set up?

Thanks Rose...:) It is 74 degrees here in my neck of the woods today. Only thing that kept me from pulling out the shorts was the fact that my legs hve not seen a tan since August and I don't want to scare anybody on my delivery route. :D

Response to Goddess.

Video's I have bought from High times for example. "Ready set grow", mention what to expect out of your pack of seeds. This is where I first heard of the germination, sprout, and sex rule.

Attitude. Actually I am looking at them currently for SLH & Strawberry cough. Since buydutch doesnt have them.

Ok, my set up. I have a reflector with a glass covering. Inside a 600w HPS bulb. I originally ordered 1 MH & 1 HPS, but I wound up getting 2 HPS. So im making due. I have it hunged from my ceiling, and my plants are on a table. Now, under the table I have CFL's hanging. This was originally suppose to be for cuttings and seeds, but again more germinated then expected.

I have been vegetating for 4 weeks. I am flowering now, because I have 11 pots under 1 600w light. They are growing pretty fast. So I just decided to go for it.



thank you for your insight, Goddess. Like I said, I am new to Cannabis. Any advice you guys have, is appreciated.

ready set grow is a joke, i have it too. only good for the basics and dont take anything High Times says to heart. if you have the money to pay them, they say whatever you want, about your strain or product, whatever. i also have the utimate grow by jorge, and a couple others. all say differnt things pretty much, opinions of the grower except for the basics as i said.

nobody knows what to expect out of a pack of seeds, breeders have the best idea but they can tell you sex ratio, ect.

50% Genetics 50% enviroment

i have a good 99% germ rate, not saying 100% cause theres been a bean here and there, but every 100 that sprout, id say 98.5 :) , of them are going to go to harvest if not male, when i buy seeds froma reptuable breeder and seedbank.

I am still confused...you do know that your flowering space has to be totally 100% dark during the dark period and that you need to have some kind of enclosure set up don't you? A 600W HPS is good for about 16 sq ft. And you need ventilation--you need to be exhausting old CO2 depleted air out of your space and replacing with fresh air all the time the lights are on. Are they growing or are they stretching? Do you have alternating nodes?

The dark period is not a problem. Its whether or not 600w can handle the growth of 11 plants, that concerns me.

Ventilation, no problem. I have an air conditioner, inline fan, and osc fan. The temp of the plant space stays at an average 77 degrees F. There not stretching. Pretty bushy actually.

This video is from week1.now if we removed the "direct links" from your previous post, WHY would we allow one now?
