I would say it is semi hard. For new growers.

Because it is a pretty heavy feeder, especially going

into week 4 it really need some more OOMPFH or it will start

to yellow up pretty fast.
So if you can’t read plants, you might mess this one up and it won’t yield as good as grown by someone with experience and knowledge.

Also a heavy drinker i have noticed compare to most plants.

grows like a c99 ,Christmas style tree and with big buds but not the most compact buds.
Branches will be able to support it easy, and it will reduce a lot in size once dried.
Smells very fruity,can’t pinpoint exact what kind of fruit, also sometimes a

whiff of fuel in the curing phase.

I’m sure there will be many pheno’s.
I might hunt them down, for now

i will keep as a mother plant for sure, till i find a better pheno.

I like fruity plants in general, so i will keep this one and toss out the candydawg from seedstockers which i liked too, but i like this one more.

Would be 10/10 if it was straight strawberry aroma/smell from the get go..thats why i gave it just an 8/10

Are DNA Genetics Seeds Worth It?

My first grow was Paradise Seeds Nebula and DNA Lemon Skunk, cut down at 61 days. Just got done with the cure, and both my wife and I like the Lemon Skunk better. Great skunky/oily lemon Pledge smell to the buds and tastes the same. Better high than Nebula (was I surprised), very even head/body stone, not couchlock, good for putting around the house or watching TV.

FYI, Nebula smells intensely sweet, almost sickly sweet (reminds me of key limes mixed with anti-freeze), it’s a wonderful smell! It does not translate to taste, which is very cool and smooth, kind of like smoking cloves with a hint of menthol. Flowery. Great cerebral high, can’t say it’s “psychedelic”, which some have said, but a very nice high. I think next time I will take Nebula an extra week.

Still liked the Lemon Skunk best.

FYI, this was two plants, ebb&flow, 400W HPS, starting height 22″, finished height 38″ and chopped at 61 days. Yield for Nebula was 5 oz., Lemon Skunk 4 oz.

Fuck dna genetics , def not worth it. Over priced bad quality seeds. Bought a lot of seeds and the germination rate was exact 50%.
When I buy expencive seeds , the germination should be 100%, like BarneysFarm seeds,Sensi, Paradise, Serious seeds.
Again ppl from the states fucked up everything. Whats up with YOU people! I wouldnt trust american potheads for two reasons.
One, they cant roll even a spliff and the second, well i dunno. dont buy dna gen.

we’ve done LAC and its a great plant. one of our favorites along with western winds and sensi star. When you get seeds from DNA or any FRESH seeds for that matter, the method you use to germinate them will determine how many actually spout.

We’ve had 100% success using this versus the “old way” which is soaking them in a wet paper towel or pre-soaking in a glass of water etc. If you follow this you’ll have a much better success rate.

Try this method: http://www.mandalaseeds.com/Guides/Germination-Guide
For an optimal germination result the seeds should be planted DIRECTLY into the substrate. We clearly advise against using pre-germination methods or soaking. Please do not place the seeds into a glass of water or in moist paper tissues.

This does not mean that pre-soaking should never be used with seeds from other sources, or that we criticize growers who prefer this method. We are aware that some breeders recommend it for their products. But to prevent complications and achieve the consistent level of high germination rates that you should be getting from your Mandala seeds please trust our advice and follow our guidelines.

Please take note that customers who soak their Mandala seeds in water or wet paper tissue do so at their own risk. We are not accountable for any failure in germination or complications caused by this method.

Fresh and healthy seeds prefer a nurturing and airy substrate to germinate in – just as mother nature has meant it to be. Cannabis is a plant species originating from semi-arid and temperate biotopes and the vast majority of modern cannabis hybrids contain a substantial percentage of these genetics. Cannabis seeds are not adapted to swampy wetlands, but they are suited for germinating in well drained soil/substrate. In nature they rot if they fall into a puddle of water. and there are no paper tissues lying around either. Taking into account these botanical facts, it is quite logical that by creating germination conditions that are similar to those of the natural habitat you can expect the best results.

What happens if one uses pre-germination methods?
Soaking seeds in water/wet paper towels is a method which can be used for old seeds (3+ years) that are drying up and losing germination power; and for pure land race equatorial strains such as from Africa. Both factors do not apply to our seeds. Fresh seeds have a healthy embryo whose cells are filled with water. But excess water causes the cells to bloat, depletes oxygen and leads to the tissue rotting away before the seed embryo can germinate. Old seeds have lost water in the cell tissue, the embryo starts to shrivel, which is why germination rates drop the older the seeds are. Therefore, old seeds (ie. 3+ years) can soak up more water before adverse conditions cause them to rot. This is one of the main reasons why various seed stock reacts differently to pre-germination methods. Some growers make the mistake of soaking our seeds in water for up to 1-2 days because it may have worked in the past with other seeds. This does not mean, however, that this method can be used for all seeds. In fact, old stock or equatorial cannabis seeds should only be soaked in water for a few hours at the most. Always consult the web site of a seed bank for specific advice and instructions on how to germinate their seeds.

It is in a growers best interest to choose a germination method with the lowest risk of complications. Because we want customers to have the highest success rate possible we recommend the most convenient and safest method. This does not mean it is the only option. We simply believe it carries the lowest risk for germinating fresh seeds. Planting seeds directly in the substrate is also the most plant friendly method for any type of seed stock. The reasons are explained below in paragraph 2 & 3.

Placing healthy & fresh seeds in water/wet tissue can lead to the development of fungi or bacteria on the seed hull. Lack of oxygen and contaminating substances in the water/wet tissue promote fungal growth which can be transported to the substrate later on. Often the seed simply rots away if left for too long in a glass of water, or wrapped up in wet tissue.

Once the seed sprouts in a glass of water or paper tissue it already has the taproot growing out of the cracked seed hull. While transplanting the germinated seed it is very difficult, indeed impossible, to prevent damage to the delicate taproot. Many sprouted seedlings handled in this way show retarded development, or even simply fail to appear out of the substrate after transplantation. Handling seedlings this way can impair the health & vigour of the plant for the duration of it’s life cycle – especially if other disturbing factors occur during the early stages of growth.

Professional horticulturists rarely use pre-germination methods to actually grow out the seedlings because of the shock suffered from transplanting them. For example, we use the paper tissue method only as a quick test for germination rates of aged seed stock from our genetic repository. This allows us to see beforehand how many seeds we have to put in soil to get the amount of plants we require for breeding projects.

Take 8-10 cm/3-4” (diameter) pots or a seedling tray and fill with quality potting soil. Press the soil slightly down and make a 1,5 cm/0,6” deep hole with a pencil or finger. Place the seed in a horizontal position in the hole (this is the easiest method). Fill the hole and gently tap down the soil. Use chlorine free water (preferably good mineral water without gas) with a pH of 6-6.5 to water the pots. The soil should be uniformly moist but not soggy or waterlogged. Use a spoon to water if necessary. Put the pots at a warm location. Temperatures at 25°C/75°F or higher accelerate germination. Take care that the soil does not dry out and that the pots don’t stand in the cold (ie. at or under 21°C/70°F). Misting the soil surface with water spray is not particularly effective. Instead you should water the pots properly if the soil surface dries up.

I've had tons of experience with LA Confidential. I would recommend it as one of my top 5 favorite straings. DNA is really worth it, and awesome. Get them…
