    Welcome to RIU dude...what can't be found out here isn't worth knowing...as far as Herb goes anyway ;)
    What strain/strains you planning?
    Soil? Hydro?
    Shit...you're the one who's supposed to have the questions lol

    i have a lot of them, but because the only hydroponics shop is 35min away i didnt feel like goin all the way out there so im using black gold organic soil. With fox farms nutes. I want 4 plants in 5 gal buckets but that depends on the lighting situation. Now thanks to Attitude seeds not giving me my seeds i have no clue of what im growing. I was given 62 seed from a friend and i do not know if they are auto flowering male, female, indica, sativa...nothing, well not until they begin to flowrer.

    I'd be well pleased to have a hydro shop 35 min away! All those needs have to come through the internet for me. But then it's no problem getting hold of seeds, living where I live. So what I lose on the swings I gain on the roundabout I guess.
    Magical mystery tour for you then! lol!

    now seeds are not as easy to get, good seeds i have to get from the internet, which has its fair share of issues, but its that or buy them from a local seller who 9 times outta 10 got them from a random plant that had seeds or collected them from is weed packs. So idk what they are how they grow ect.

    It's hard to grow a shite plant (although some have managed) so it's all good. And there just might be a legend among your seeds somewhere...

    see im really hopping that the seeds i were given were decent because im not trying to deal with 10ft tall super plants with baby yields, if everything works out then i should be able to make enought o get better lights and better seeds. Do you know of any really good websites to buy seeds?

    I agree 35 minuts is not that fare, and is about the same I have to mine, I like to take the trip and do the shopping..

    sure some of there stuff cost a bit more then online (if to much they are normal to talk with) but no shipping, I can get advice from some nice Ppl how enjoy the same hobby and if something is wrong or breaks I can go back, and just the fact that I get my stuff right away is nice and just one online order who fail to come or is bad quality can cost more then you safe

    beside that I can get my hydro shop to order the stuff I like if they don't have it home or sell it, got em to order specially soil and seeds for me as they did`t have the soil or the strain I was looking for, tho they have a lot of strains, dunno about your shop ? but at mine Im sure you could find sumthing no matter if its Reg. Femi or auto`s

    well damn when you put it like that i may have to look into it. So its not an uncommon thing for hydro shops to sell cannabis seeds in the store. How much does the fox farms nutrients big bloom, tiger bloom, and grow big go for in the store cause its almost 50 dollars if not more online plus shipping.

    Herbies and Attitude are both rated regularly here on riu...stealth shipping with Attitude I think, and Herbies do, I know.

    And generally free seeds with your order, which can slowly build a nice "stable" of seeds...

    last time I bought seeds at my hydro shop (5 LSD Femi from Barney`s) I got 2 freebee Femi seeds (white triangle)

    ther nutriens is normal about the same prices as online but in my shop they mostly have a lot of discounts and always (atlest when I shop there) run it down to a equal number at the end)

    what my shop is mostly more expensive with is hardware (Etc. lights, filters and ventilation)

    p.s.

    one thing I have learned, is if you found sumthing "special" do call em and hear em if they have it/at home before you make the trip, sucks to use 1-2 hours on nothing and waste gas

    I usealy do my research and find out prices online and make a note on what to get and if sumthing Im not sure of I call em and ask before I make the drive or ask em to order it home for me and wait untill they call and tell me they got it home
