Just wondering if anyone has used green point seeds specifically there rum runner and bananimal just curious how they grow
I haven’t used them directly but have gotten some green point seeds from friends on the forum. Seem reputable. Idk about that specific strain.
Getting my 4x4 on Tuesday Guna pop one of each and see how they go
I have a very large collection of GPS seeds.
All seeds I have grown from them has germinated no problem.
One issue… They are not stable… So unstable they are for pheno hunts mainly. For instance… Lemon Frosting… One of my favorites… Had one great pheno… Rest mainly tasted of Animal Cookies. I’d say most of the seeds I’ve grown show more of one parent than the other vs what you hope for… Not that having a bunch of Animal Cookies or Purple Punch or Stardawg is bad… It just gets boring.
Remember that GU is the money guy… He has growers and a breeder that do the work. He has truly screwed long time good customers out of earned membership benefits. Benefits he never returned to the customer… Even the auctions were once a great way to save.
I lost my appetite for him and his group when I joined their discord forum… What a mistake… Other than some free tester seeds… And a few awesome people on their… The rest was full of hate, people openly bullied others, got extremely political, and embraced hate. One moderator was even publicly fired and chastised after people were posting racist and homophobic memes and comments and he did the right thing. Gu stood firmly by the worst of the forum all in the name of freedom of speech. What a joke. I am American through and through… But freedom… It’s a responsibility… Not an excuse… Sorry for that…
When I left… I was a “notable grower” I still grow their seeds sometimes but I prefer variety more now.
I own over 75 different strains from them… Both regular and feminized.
Do a search online… They have quite a history and even an apparent hack that occurred but they refuse to talk about it, nor did they notify anyone. Please look it up… Be diligent it’s there.
Good luck… Their stuff usually grows well, with good germination rates.
Sorry for the rant… I’ve learned people have strong opinions about them… Myself included… But before I bought and bought and bought…
This is awesome information @Fiefie nothing to apologize for!
I have grown GreenPoint for the past three years. Currently have a garden full of their seeds now. Great germination rate. As mentioned above yes they are good for phenos hunting as the strains normally show a few variations.
I also joined the discord portion of GreenPoint. Became a notable grower, got some testers ect. Long story short I deleted my account after a few months. Honestly it was just a bunch of people thinking they are the best/only growers in the world. It seemed like some high school kids getting free packs of seeds. It was actually a joke.
But…. I truly do love there seeds. I have had great success with all the strains I have chosen to grow. Purple Dream, Z-Dawg, Lemond Tree Punch, Sicky Icky ect.
They offer some S1 strains now that should be alittle more stable.
@Fiefie wow sounds that they got a crazy story lol but thanks for all the info and I will do some research on that sound interesting! Who is gu? @HippieRunner1 thank you as well looking forward to get These girls started
The owner of GPS… We’ll ex owner… Last I heard/read (saw the doc for myself) he had put the business under his wife’s name. Sketchy.
Again… A thorough search will show all.
Ughh glad I’m not part of that forum just about everything I read had some kind of negativity in it
Seems like they all have bad things to say about ILGM forum and there seeds I wonder why??
Because people hate on companies they can’t compete with!!! Let’s be honest ILGM doesn’t have the best gear! But they stand by there germination guarantee and are consistent. As far as the forum goes…. I am CONFIDENT in saying…… ILGM has the best community of growers on the net! No one even comes close! @Frstgrow
@503KING Well this is the only group I’ve been apart of and I’m sure I won’t leave I love it here and the. People are nothing but helpful and friendly the seeds I haven’t tried but I look forward to it based off the BOM contest pictures I would say ILGM has some fire genetics.
@HippieRunner1 I missed out on the the S1s of Lemon Tree… They do have great S1 seeds.
Well I popped a GPS rum runner and GPS bananimal hope they turn out decent it will be my second run first grow is still in the process
Good luck… Like I said… Other than the business issues… The seeds will grow well… GPS is known for its Stardawg and Purple Punch mother or father’s… One or the other… I think father… They mix them with everything… I think they are or were soon going to have more “actual” breeds coming… With several partner plants to get a new strain… Not just mixing one father with everything.
I would say… My advice… Don’t buy a ton of seeds… Thinking… “one day”… I have too many seeds… If you come across something rare get it.
I’ve been trying to buy American… Just because there’s a lot of new breeders out their… Also med shops that provide clones and seeds to med people.
Aficionados of Colorado
The clone conservatory
I love the ilgm community… Plus they do have the guarantee… Which I’ve never used. Keep in mind places like this and weedseedsexpress are bulk seed sellers.
There’s more but I haven’t purchased from them.
There is fire to found in the ilgm packs I found a golden leaf that I love……. But overall there like a c+ Or a B- with there genetics game. You will hunt a lot more seeds from ilgm than you would have to from other breeders. I.e Archive, Compound, RELENTLESS, wizard trees! But you will pay . 5 times as much to hunt there gear. So if you got the time and don’t mind looking through a bunch of mediocre plants in the process then I would hunt ilgm! But if my space was limited and I didn’t want to search through a bunch of seeds. I would pay more and get a better product and a chance to find something really nice. Without having to pop 100 seeds! I know everyone on here is gonna crucify me for saying this. But it’s the truth! There are such good growers on this sight that haven’t stepped away from the mid grade ilgm beans! Grade-A ,top notch growers. Much better than myself! My results are so good in such a short time because I realized after my first 2 runs. That what seed you pick to plant is half the battle! Everyone have a blessed day!
