With as many hermie as show up in sub_ool's strains I can't for the live of me understand why anyone would want him to make Femmed seeds
with ya on that one bro. I almost went with his gear when the hype started. Thank goodness I waited and seen his breeding method.
You can make any process "look" right, sound awesome, and make it sound scientific. Thats advertising preying upon the peeps that don't or can't do the research.
On a bud only run, TGA puts out some very potent and pretty gear with well named genetics behind it, but it still comes down to taking the 2-3 years of successive inbreeding and testing for it to be a "trustworthy" strain. Which most "newer" breeders do not have the patience for.
The original breeders tended to do it out of love, prior to internet and huge seed biz, now it's about the coin.
The genetics of marijuana are becoming bottlenecked and it's gonna be like the titanic at the rate of fem'd seeds are coming about. :fid:
Not to mention the herm traits that are hidden that are getting dumped into the gene pool. With substandard breeding practices. Buy regular seeds, don't buy hype, and research these breeders. There are many many many hacks out there that are "labeled" experts because of hype and a killer pheno they just BX'd without running down to see whats what or worse yet just sprayed it with Gibberlic Acid or just light stressed it and packed em up at $50 / pack labeled femd.
Research not just reviews, but research the breeders articles and his methodology. A lot of time you will catch them slip up if you bump around long enough. Saying they did something in one forum and something totally different in another. It's a "seedy biz"
Femd seeds resembles monsanto's round-up ready patent methods. Lock it in Patent it and if anyone tries to re-use without paying it's into court for patent infringement. If it becomes legal who knows...that is very probable.
They did it with wheat. Which is a major crop.
Don't get me going with clone only LOL
If your not into making your own seed, I can see not taking this stuff so seriously, but when you try to stock yourself with seed, others shoddy work tends to throw the keibash on peeps like me that try real hard to find certain phenos that just aren't out there that work well for me. Which require outcrossing to find a prefect blend of genetics.
As for TGA I hope to gawd he doesn't start femd...bad enough reviews (by some old heads) on some of his stuff just being regular. Hype price and a book with some awards on smokability wins over methodology. I wish they would have a breeders cup instead of a "cannabis cup" Focus solely on results and style of selective breeding. Instead of yearly every 5 yrs. Promote truly crafted breeds for outcrossing and true breeding characteristics. Not just huge raves about a single expressed pheno, but the strain as a whole. It's stability, clonability, how it handles stress, the pheno probabilities, and the overall potency and smokability. The strain as a complete whole with it's ability to mix with other strains. That would be an event. IMO
a very close quote of subcool on one of his strains said:
This particular strain cannot handle much stress it may cause expression hermaphroditic traits
The thread is in here somewhere. Basically if you breathe wrong it's gonna toss nanners.
but subcool is NOT the only one out there. esp. with the amount of "collectives" and the "profit hype" at dispensaries, this will become common place very soon if it hasn't already.
There you go Hick...I went there for ya :headbang:
end rant LOL
