Just wondered who else likes collecting seeds ..

I live in hope of a future with more freedom to grow what I like for myself... just as I can currently with my fruit and veg that I also grow. 
meanwhile the queue for my limited grow space and plant numbers just gets longer and longer lol

i figured out why this is happening... it’s because it’s much quicker to buy seeds than to grow them ! 🤔

However knowing this doesn’t seem to slow me down! I’ve never been a huge collector of anything really, a few panini sticker albums and some Star Wars figures when I was a kid but nothing special.. 

I also collect vegetable seeds at a faster rate than I can grow them at my allotment due to limited space moreover than grey-area plant limits .. .. so I think there’s a powerful draw to seeds for me for sure....

I still find it amazing every time I see one germinate knowing what it’ll grow into and become .. a metamorphosis as great or greater than any other..

This year I’ll get through a few of them, most will join the queue, some may never be chosen...

each time one pops another chance of living the magic and anticipation of what’s coming..  seeing her grow and fulfil her promise ...

Just made another order for some more Humbolt Seed Company stocks 😳

I may have to change my New Years resolutions if this keeps up!! 🤔

These pale with my veg seed collection btw You’d need 2-3 tables for those 😃

Time to pop some more beans 😗

Been known to shop for a few seeds myself. Similar problems in that I always seem to find something else that I just love so much that of course it has to be my very next grow, but inevitably just adds to the pile of waiting to germinate seeds. I have a similar problem with flower seeds for containers and the flower beds outside. I always buy twice as much as I need but it literally only cost one or two dollars a pack so cheap habit I think. If cannabis seed was as available as readily and cheaply as flower seeds I probably wouldn’t stockpile them as much

Haven't  counted exactly but at current rate of grows I doubt I need to buy anymore seeds for at least 5 years 😁

Only hope I can store them for that long !

Time to grow old disgracefully.

The Vault sorted me for at least the next year with last years 4-20 prize and of course you immediately have to re-shuffle you grow plan and things get further delayed because of space lol. No complaints tho because more is always better.

Vegeta, what does the scouter say about the number of seeds? It's over 9000! Seriously though. There is over 9000. Breeding is fun! LoL. I will buy more though, of course of course. Got my eye on some of Ace Seeds' gear, as well as some Subcool cuts - Bloodwreck and Scarlet Queen if I can ever find em. And I just found out recently the breeder of one of my faves, Killing Fields, is Sannie's Seeds so will be doing some hunting there as well. Those autosampler vials are also much fuller now.. hehehe.

I love collecting though - I collect metal CDs, metal shirts, rocks (geologist lol), and ofc seeds. I even still have my pokemon cards (original base set holographic Charizard too - no big deal) and even my pogs! Member pogs?!

@templegrower nice collections bro 👌

I’m looking to germ a Lebanese from ace seeds some point this year.. I also have a load of ‘land race’ or (local heritage cultivars more accurately) seeds collected by Angus of The Real Seed Company .. check out the site if you haven’t yet .. interesting viewing even if not shopping.

I believe many, or some, of ace seeds genetics are modified ‘landraces’ to enable easier growing. I didn’t realise at the time of buying my Panama red is actually a Panama strain crossed with a Honduras strain not authentic Panama red... still genetics from the region nonetheless and so far looks like it will be a very different smoke to add to the Percy stash 🙂

Which Ace strains were you tempted by out of interest bro? 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

You're about the 4th or 5th person to mention WoS to me now.. must be good shit. I've gone through their stuff a couple times before but will do a real good perusal this time. Thinking about it now, I supposedly have some of their landrace Afghan Kush that was selfed by a guy I traded some beans with about a month ago.. he also crossed it with Phenofinders' Wedding Cake. Interesting.

From Ace, I was eyeing all of them. Lol. They have some really nice looking stuff.. but especially the Killer A5 Haze, Golden Tiger, their version of the PCK, and all the African-based cuts. I see that Old Timer's Haze too... I've been thinking about that one for about a year now. 16 week flower tho is tough to swallow lol. I did just buy another tent tho so, I can probably make some room... hehehe.

@templegrower i wanna grow em al too lol

I was referring to the real seed company not world of seeds, but same kettle of fish.. there’s a great interview with Angus from the Real Seed Company on the Future Cannabis Project about 2-3 months ago where he discusses his ‘strain-hunting’ and what I’d term ‘World Weed Heritage sites’ 🤔😃

Seeds seeds seeds

fun fun fun 

Happy perusing TG 

Time to pop some more beans 😗
