Nice work and i would never chew you out. Remember i offered. Lol.
Very nice craftsmanship
Yeah I’m good with a hammer lol.
Well batting a thousand, the one 10th planet that did come up, died, just keeled over and died. I’ve never had this problem before except tith the POTG which is from Ethos as well. Nothing else has come up. $100 worth of seed kaput. Just cracked open a package of sealed OKC-R1 also Ethos. Gonna give the 10th a couple of days more but I’m not holding my breath.
Well it’s been over a week since I put in the first batch of 5 10th planet seeds, then a few days later i put in the other 5 in the ten pack. The results aren’t any better on the second half. Didn’t expect them to be in all honesty. I picked out the darkest of the 10 for the first germination, so the runts and really white ones were left. So after 9 days I have one up standing, one that keeled over and died, one that is up but sickly pale, and one that is up and green but laying over like it’s on it’s last breath. I would most definetely say that it is a piss poor batch of seeds from Ethos, they have been in the fridge in double glass, the vial they ship in and then inside another glass jar so it’s not storage. Could have been too much heat and bad handling from the post office I guess. Got them a few months ago.
That really sucks. Have you contacted who you got them for to see if you can get replacements?
I had 2x aficionados 13th ghost do that and 3x soma sacred seeds lavender do this also.
Yeah even the POTG wern’t this bad. All the seeds coming out of Ethos seem to be picked too soon, I just opened all the original packs of Ethos seeds I have and they are all pale as a ghost. I have Ethos seeds I got a couple of years back and they are all of good color, and I never had any problems with germination rates.
And yeah that always sucks when you get bad seeds that don’t germinate. $100 bucks is a $100 bucks. What ya gonna do?
If it were me I would do two things. I would email ethos directly with my concerns, respectfully the first time. And I would contact the seed seller that I got them from.
I used to get my Ethos from Weed Gardian Family Tree seed vendor out of Colorado, they got really horrible on their service, the last order that I got which this was included in…it took them almost 3 months to get them to me, and nothing to do with the Post office or carrier. They play that game where you inquire with them, then they send you a email with a your order is shipped banner, and all they did was make a label in their shipping software and they haven’t really shipped it. I got pissed off the last time and called them and got a bit shitty to say the least, so I’m pretty sure my bridge s burned there lol. However in my defense, they lied, then called me 15 times one right after another while I was out with friends one evening around 8-9 pm here. I was nice at first but after the tenth call I told them to piss off. Leave me alone, that their phone calls had gotten to the point of harrassment. So no I don’t think they will replace any seeds lol. It’s their loss, I just won’t get any seeds from them ever again. At that juntion I had purchased over $600 worth of seeds from them. I don’t reward assholes.
Hey sport, that absolutely sucks…
Another thing you might consider (and I feel you’re totally justified) is start a new topic here on GN .
At least that would warn all members here and perhaps the word will spread…IMHO that is just CHICKENSHIT… wouldn’t cost them a damn thing to replace your seeds and make sure you’re a satisfied customer…Obviously they’re only interested in the MONEY and that pisses me off…LOL and I’m not even involved!!!
Turns out that sickly looking yellow one only has one colytdon seed leaf, definetely bad seeds.
Well it looks like I finally have 5 live ones. One of the three in the pictures posted earlier died as well. Two are still growing, the yellow one has turned green and looks like it may put out two true leaves, the coltydons were mutated with only one on that seedling. Here is a pic of this morning 15 seeds later lol…anyway the one on the left is going to come up, it had a chunk of soil pushed up, but I watered this morning so it melted that piece of worm casting back onto and covered up the sprout pushing up. I put in 4 OKC R1’s and looks like they are all going to come up. Really dissapointed with the 10th planet seeds. 2 out of 10 sucks.
Woo Hoo, well this morning the last of the OKC R1’s popped out of the ground. The other three cups hold the remains of the 10th planet seeds that didn’t pop. Got a Doc appointment this morning, so will be fiddling with them and dumping out the non-sprouting cups. These OKC R1 girls are all a purple color coming out of the soil…I like that lol !! So I wonder has anyone grown both these strains, and if so which is the best? The OKC or the 10th planet. Reason I ask is I now have 6 up, but only plan on putting in 5 that will give me a good floor plan/spacing in the 5x5 tent. Would rather keep the best of the two strains, the little brosures that come with them read almost identical. 30+ THC for both.
Thanks to anyone who can chime in.
You could always just put six of them in the tent see which five do the best and just cull the weakest one. The two strains will probably both be fairly similar.
I hate that you had bad luck with your seeds, but it’s a little reassuring that I’m not the only one having a tough time with an ethos strain. I have an ethos auto going that I just can’t please. She’s been unhappy from the get. Still unhappy in early flower, but frosty as hell despite being unhappy and having a light fall on her.
Yeah sorry to hear you are having problems with them also! Mine are all photos, there is no doubt that they are picking the seeds too early, when seeds are all white, they haven’t been left on the plant until they are mature, inmature seeds haven’t finished their genetic programming so they just don’t grow right. The OKC all came up and are doing fine, they were also pretty pale, but not as bad as the 10th planet. When the only thing you sell is seeds and you sell inmature ones, youre gonna piss people off with bad germ rates. Like I said a couple of years ago I got my first Ethos, GG4, Mandarin cookies and another one I can’t recall the name of. They were all of good color and all germinated just fine. Still have some of them, All the seed I bought in the last batch and all shipped the same time were all pale as ghosts. I don’t think that is a coincendence.
I don’t know why breeders take this chance. I’m a little at home nobody when it comes to breeding, but I won’t even send freebies of my gear that don’t have good stripes…
