Greenpoint seeds!!

How can you call this guy a breeder though, pollen chucker yes, breeder no. The lines are blurred these days between pollen chucker and breeder.

I have 15 or so strains, I could easily acquire 15 more… if I took one of my 2 males and hit all those, would that make me a breeder, no a pollen chucker. Breeding implies two things, A. you worked the line to create something new or B. you found 2 very suitable mates and have a good F1 line. Too many breeders these days just take the most hyped strains and hit them with their male (which is typically from someone else’s last year release) he did actually breed the monster cookie to hats off to that.

Just another example of the TGA style breeding… hit elite females in F1 and call it good, hermies are ok apparently these days so even if they hermie you’re all good.

This seems to be the way some people are doing things, I have bought around 20 packs of Bodhi’s stock and never had issues so if Gu’s males are real studs we are in for a treat but I do see a trend to hit tons of cuts with select males instead of working strains like companies did overseas in years past ie- Serious Seeds.

Everyone knows by now that gps strains are released untested, kind of surprised Gu is trying to say other wise at this point.

Prior results of other crosses doesn’t qualify as testing, but that’s how he typically portrays why the lack of testing of new crosses is ok. It appears that he is more concerned with the cash flow from new strain drops, then waiting to test them. Its his buisness, so he has every right to pursue what ever buisness model he wants.

However, Gu’s actions over the past year or so, have driven many of his loyal customer base away. I am not going to dig it all back up, it’s documented in the gps thread for those that want to educate them selves on his buisness practices that caused all the turmoil. 99% boil down to Gu taking a monetary hit or his customers taking the hit as a result of the actions of his company . guess who took the hit.

There are nice plants to be found in GPS packs, if you can get by the nonsense and find a deal on the auctions.

I only buy the strains on auction.
Being on a pension is hard to afford full price.
I don’t get into seedbank drama.
I’ve seen so many good reports and nice pictures from members on GPS gear. Just have to have a look at the GPS thread in the seeds and strain forum.

As for untested seeds. well the cbay auction sold a ton of seeds that were not tested prior to selling.
Never heard any issues. that I can remember on those seeds back then. All I grew from there was excellent.
The guy from back then I grew the most of was from Dutch Flowers. Those seeds always went for $$$$$$

My actions? Like admitting a mistake about bringing a new breeder on and in turn refunding customers who purchased his seeds? Like listening to complaints about abusive card processors and shutting them down? Like offering seeds daily for less than $40? Like an answering 100% of emails and messages? I’ll wait for you to point to another high volume seed breeder that steps up to the plate and won’t shy away from a pitch like me.

I won’t say I never make mistakes, or bite off more than I can chew, or fall. Often. Because I do, but I’m actually willing to be here and available. For you to support or throw tomatoes at.

I’ve been breeding with the Stardawg male for FOUR years now, Hundreds of thousands of seeds popped by satisfied customers. If that’s not a proven track record I don’t know what is.

I either hope your legal or I hope Michael w Jackson is an alias lol (if this has already been discussed apologies as I haven't read entire thread) and I'm… ]]>
