@Northernlite reading your post made me sneeze a lot, I must be allergic to something within it…
let’s say hypothetical(which in my experience and several others isn’t the case) ILGM seeds have a 50% chance of being healthy meaning with 20 seeds 10seeds should be healthy and worst case scenario if ALL else fails 3 healthy seeds…but you my friend not only claim to have 20unimpressive seeds but had similar results with 3 other strain…you now see what I might be allergic to?
According to your story, you would have gotten better odds with a crap shoot…so why not just stick to that because maybe growing just isn’t your thing.
In the service we have a saying, when things go wrong it rarely is the equipments fault but usually always operators error.
So grower error maybe?
I am not the best grower nor do I have a green thumb infact I once killed an entire lawn of grass by over watering, never even could grow a Lima bean in school but yet this being my first grow, I ordered 5 chocolope seeds, tried to germinate all 5 seeds because I expected myself to kill 4, I ended up losing 1 seed(dogs), 1 did not germinate and now I have 3 healthy plants.
What I recommend is read the ILGM grow bible, create a grow journal, ask lots of questions and maybe you will have better success.
