I haven't been growing a long time, but a few years this time around. SO I thought I'd splurge on some seeds for last summer. I saw BC Bud Depot (BCBD) ads in all the mags so I decided to give them a shot. Besides, Rosenthal gave them great reviews in the "Buds" series of books.
I ordered BC God Bud feminized (12 ea.) and BC SweetTooth (12 ea.). The total was a shade over $200.00. I got the beans in the mail as promised, germed and sprouted them, vegged them to about 24 inches high and set them to flower.
When these were forced, some of the Sweet Tooth shot up like a rocket -- maybe 14 inches higher than the rest, then it started to sprout both male and female pre-flowers. The feminized BC God Bud seeds turned out to grow about 40% males. Sure am glad I paid that 30+% premium for the fem. seeds!
The BC God Bud grew out shitty, the flowers were OK but there was so much vegetation that it easily rotted if you left a stem from a dead leave on the stalk. A couple of the plants finished pretty nice, but I was largely unimpressed. The BC Sweet Tooth had major herm issues. The tops were airy and small.
I know what some of you are thinking, 'it's the grower'. However, I grew two other strains in the same soil, the same pots, the same light and nutes, and they were great! They were Mandala strains, and if you haven't tried them yet you should. I did get a hold of BCBD by email but nothing ever came of it.
Anybody else out there had trouble with BCBD?
