Has anyone grown there Romulan ?
I have been thinking about getting some and they do not ship to where I live and before I try to get them via third party I want to know they are worth it.
When I come back from my summer/fall seed run break I want to do a seed run of these.

I've been looking at their romulan for some time also and I am in the same predicament. Their romulan x hashplant really has me interested also. Let me know how ya do.

I have grown the Romulan from Federation purchased through Marc Emery mail order 10 years ago.
It was AMAZING. Like nothing else. I don't think that I've ever been so psycho-actively stoned from an indica before. I did some reading recently, and Romulan is descended from some pot that Korean War Veterans brought home with them. They smoked it for the horrors they had lived in war. It worked for me to.
I have no knowledge of Green Life Seeds, but the real Romulan comes from the Federation.
I would not get a Romulan cross, because Romulan is so special that anything else could only water it down.
S_A_H i'm going to get some more federation romulan seeds and cross and backcross them. They have my seal of approval, to see the quality of buds i consider, look at my Boy Wonder smoke report.
The Romulan grows as a short afghani style indica. It is not the best yielder, but can be in a sea of green, where it shoots up to yield an ounce from under a weeks veg. Flowers about 8 weeks, but leave it longer if you can. I likes cool and lots of air, to get tight sticky nugs. She is a beautiful green, and one day again I will meet my green dream.
Thank you Romulan, Thank you Korean War Vets and Thank you Federation Seeds. Thank you Marc Emery for selling them to me and thank you S_A_H for mentioning the greenest of girls.

Two differant breeders, two different strains.
The only thing in common is the name.
Like I said, pass on Green Life's Romulan.

Yeah I had heard that the Federation Rom was thee best and that they were going out of business and wanted to do some more work with the strain and Flodica.

I must wholly agree with rocket_science... I too bought some Romulan from ME back in about 2000 or so, and it was and is in my top 3 all time smokes! Mine had a certain metallic-tartness flavour to it. It had unique tight little buds to it in the way the calyxes grew... Man I long for that plant again:-( You are truly a luckey guy rocket... Id give away my left nut to have some again....
I have long since wondered about TNG's version of the Romulan. I dont want to knock TNG's Romulan as I have never tried them myself, but if thothamon has tried it and it is his opinon, then that's really too bad they wernt similar . Good info to know though for sure. I also thought about re-buying from Fed but I dunno if they have the same genetics as back then as I had heard something about a break-in and stolen plants from the Fed guys. I guess its buyer-beware as with almost all seed purchases....

I bought two packs of their Romulan/Hashplant and it was all good but I found a special dwarf Romulan that reeks of pine fuel and is more potent than the Chem's that are all the rage. I'm very happy with my find, a true elite!
