Grape Ape has pretty much only just got coverage very recently when it was in the latest issue of High Times.
I imagine it will become a much sought after strain very soon as do most strains once they’ve featured in a full article in High Times.

Does not mean it will come out as good as the ones you see pictured in High Times, but if you’re up to it it could be

Where did you manage to find Grape Ape seeds? I haven’t seen them around anywhere yet.

That’s how moist strains start out though. Then word gets around o something like its yield/high/stone/look/taste/smell/colour etc. then it gets noticed by someone with connections, then High Times (or a similar Cannabis media service) get wind of it and choose to write an article, featuring pictures of perfect plants grown in massive setups (usually) with everything optimal, bing bang boom, next thing you know it’s one of the most sought after strain available on the market haha.

Without coming from an already very reputable breeder/seed bank there’s really no other way for strains to get a lot of international attention, other than winning a Cannabis Cup of course, but it’s more often than not the ‘heavy weight’ breeders who win that anyway.

I’ve seriously not seen Grape Ape seeds anywhere. For all I know it’s clone only? . I have read the article about the Grape Ape grow by the ‘Cali Master Grower’ referred to as ‘The Wizard’ in High Times though haha. Wasn’t actually all that interesting, had no new information that any good grower wouldn’t already know. In fact I think I’ve learned one new growing ‘technique’ from High Times and Norml . But I will keep reading them in hope that one day there’s an article full of awesome new information and experiments.

Too true mate, too true. Some growers just stick to the basics for years and years, and that’s cool if that’s their thing. But as you said, some of us have put more time than we can remember into research, experiments, asking question, etc. etc.
I know people who have been growing for ‘longer’ than me, but have actually done fewer grows -> fewer harvests, less research, fewer experiments, yet they still think they’re the most shit hot growers around with the best strains and everything, won’t take advice, I once offered them some seeds or clones and they refused. I didn’t tell them I hav packs and packs of ‘official strains’ laying around and they could of had cuts of Kali Mist, White Russian, Super Lemon Haze, AK-47 . They just assumed it was some ‘crap’ seeds I had from a hermie or something, I had to laugh at them under my breathe. They’re going on about how great these skunk seeds they got are. Decided not to tell them I had a pack of Super Skunk seeds (which is what they used to grow and rave about – poor guys really).
