thats a great way to do it if you have access to some available bud. I pretty much choose a strain blindly. I kinda know what i want, and i go by the description. i prefer a sweet candy or fruit flavor.. berry, citrus
I've only bought seeds from a couple, both Dutch, and have been extremely happy with what I've gotten on probably a dozen different strains. Sure, it's fun to experiment with bag seed, but Nirvana has always come through with such quality for so long, and the prices are right, that I seldom want to roll the dice elsewhere with such an investment of time and money. (Not a paid advertisement!)
I agree with SHB I just go off the description
If you can trust that what you are trying is the same strain you are going to grow from the same seedbank. Every seedbank has the same strain names but that don't mean they are all equal! The flowers you get from a dispensary has been chosen out of a bunch of plants usually too. They are grown from clone making them the exact same plant every time you harvest. You also have different phenotypes in each strain that can make a difference. This would definitely help you zero in on your favorite strain though!
Dispensaries in my area so suck! Most people buy concentrates and weed on the street.
Good genetics and a good reputation to go along with that and you have my business.
Word of mouth and grower pics, is a great way to make a determination on what seeds to grow. There are many growers on WP that have made me decide on a few strains to try. So far so good ! And I thank you !
hell no grow that stuff that is a big part of what helps me thru my days .... i know with the help from this site and what i have learned my buds r as good as store bought even better !!!!
@Arthur...what i do when i grow a strain and find a pheno i really liked at harvest time i leave a few nodes at bottom of limbs and then just reveg the plant and take some clones to werk with...ive set the reveged plant outside several times an let it take off in warm weather an grow the clones in my setups ect inside..those reveged plants go crazy
