553 posts in this topic

I always thought the opposite I had some bangers from freebies and disappointment from full packs of the same strain

I'm trying to get through my freebies along with one or two at a time that I've bought.. Choc skunk is one that I'm doing again just coz the freebie was nice.. In the past I've over fed, let roots get cold, over watered and just stumped growth with a fair few plants so i can't say with certainty whether or not freebies in general are rubbish, or down to me rubbish or decent tbh. My last grow came out OK but rubbish yield but this one has got me all excited, no cold roots and no overfeeding in this one so touch wood i think I'm starting to understand what I'm doing now, only took about 11 years :wallbash:

Attitude gave better before ,even accidental hacks from some breeder years ago for cheap .Which a lot of folks here grew ,and you only had to spend 15 -20 quid for a few freebies .

Interesting thread, never knew we had censors. 

 

From what I can gather from looking at certain members posts, some people have had issues with Footloose.  I'm glad I found this thread as I have 4 Footloose vegging and one flowering at the mo, I now know to keep a close eye on them and i am thankful for that cause this grow is at a friends place, I'll now make sure I check thoroughly daily instead of every 3-4 days.

I'll give one thats absolute garbage ime Phenofinders. Only found shite. Mind it was a freebie.

 

I did a run of their "Simple Wedding Cake".  It was one of the strongest and near on nicest weeds I've grown....but it hermied :( 

 

Was well gutted, it would 100 have been a keeper otherwise.  It was so nice I even keept a few of the seeds she self-produced and ran them at a later date, they were as good as thier he-she-mama lol 

 

Take that as 2c worth, awesum plant, prob just poorly made genetics.

Freebies are a scam: the number of people I've seen complaining about crap plants or non-germination from freebies  leads me to think most breeders have a pile of below-par seeds they are only too willing to foist on us.  I've tried 3 since I set up my new drobe, 2 didn't come up and 1 took 5 weeks to make 5 inches.

This is easily apparent to anyone checking it out, freebies = duds.

Thats Bollocks stronest smoke iv had had in years came from a free be from g13  labs it was deadly stuff...not stuff to smoked if you have out to do the next day and i really do wish i could have got a cut of it but it seemed impossible they would not take

Some plants are just a bitch to clone ya know. Its got absolutely nothing to do with vigour or health. 

My disco biscuit keeper is one of the best plants I've ever come across. 

Its a fucking arsehole to get clones to root. That means nothing.

How a breeder could possibly know that a seed is going to produce is a new one on me. 

 

My take on freebies? They sent to entice you into buying more.........if they were duff seeds and you grew them and they were shite, its a piss poor way of advertising and getting someone on board.

I'm sure the likes of karma send out shite as freebies so people are put of running his gear. Yea that makes sense....not

 

A lot of people here are bitching about bad plants and calling breeders all sorts because they ran one freebie seed of a multipolyhybrid x mulitpolyhybrid and expect the Holy grail from every single seed. 

 

 

I wouldn't expect that level of performance from fully stabilised line taken to f4 or more let alone from a strain of the latest cut of God knows that crossed to God knows what. 

 

One seed a strain does not maketh.

The freebie i got with my dinafem seeds didnt even germinate, phoenix seeds OG kush was the one, I did moan about it back at the shop nit letting on it was a freebie but it does make me wonder after reading here how the freebies may well be the shit seeds they've to get rid of. Ive a G13 purple haze there and I won't grow it because I don't like sativa haha 

 

 

My dinafem sweet deep grapefruit were freebies and amazing plants, thought it hermied on me but no it gave me just short of 2oz lol

Nearly all my freebies have come from seedbanks, not breeders. A poll asking who buys from where would be revealing.

Are you now suggesting seedbanks chuck in random seed and label them with breeders names to potentially ruin thier reputation by sending out any old garb? 

Would you let that seedbank sell your seeds knowing that? Not good for business. Think about it logically

 

Edit. Thats quite an accusation for the like of attitude etc who pride themselves on good service.
