    I saw in another thread that I am not the only one. Waiting every month to see what will be in the promo at Attitude. Every month I look forward to it too and the more strains I get the better. It is almost addicting.
    Maybe we can all compare notes and share pics of our collections. The other day I was actually thinking of getting a better case to store them in or maybe some type of book like the stamp and coin collectors have. Who will be the first to come out with the DIY seed storage compartment? If you've seen one already post it here. As of now I store them in an old spaghetti sauce jar with some silica packets inside. I can't get a pic right now of my collection but I will put it up tomorrow. So show me what yah got. Post away with your ideas and inventions and your collections.

    I made a thread about this a little while ago. I have been collecting for over a year now and have upwards of 70 different strains in seed form. some are just single seeds others are anywhere from 2 to a hundred.

    I would have to say its addicting thats for sure.

    You have me beat. How do you store your seeds and where is your thread located? Did it die like mine looks like it is going to do? lol

    lol im sure it will die, the only threads that last here are threads that bash either nirvana or attitude.

    I just picked up 3 more space bombs, a couple of kc brains ten packs and a another 12 pack of desajaman or whatever it is.

    I jumped on last month for the dutch passion freebies, now they are using those freebies as the ufo. pretty psyched so now I have a couple of them rather than just one.

    I will continue to collect genetics until our freedom is truly restored and we can than cultivate when, where, and what we what.

    I went to a craft store they have nice little cases for crafts. Basically just a plastic box with little tic tac like containers-8$ pt em in the fridge with some cotton in the packs to help with any moisture. Been about 4 years for some and who knows how long they sat with suppliers. No problems with any of the gear really. I'm getting to the point I want to start planting some of the older beans and many are no longer available so I want to use em while I can to make some crosses. I need a new container lol. Here's what I have.
    King's kush (flowering)
    blue cheese fem
    Cannalope Haze
    Afgan Kush
    Colombian gold
    Mikado
    Romulan
    Mango
    Hawaiian sativa
    skunk #1
    querkle
    Blueberry
    Dynamite
    Top Dawg
    Og#18
    The dope
    Jackberry
    Chocolate rain
    true BB x chem
    Black rose x gdp
    cherry slyder x critical mass
    Early purple kush
    sour P
    pg13
    More colombian gold (in the dirt now)
    Mendo montage
    Dna freebies, rocklock, sour cream and sharksbreath

    sure im forgetting some stuff and than I have random bagseeds from good weed and some bagseeds i got from a friend who collected em for years that I have had for a decade. Still have about 10 more must haves on my list. I think the attitude freebes have sucked lately and what I want is often not in stock.

    damn guys your are right ordering beans is a addiction and i said it before i need rehab/intervention..
    I just want a couple more strains before i stop ordering and i might order for the attitude promo.But most of the strains i want are out of stock so i will search for another strain or just use someone else.I know sannies is a given that i order from him he does has some good genetics from what everyone says and i want to try the ko kush along with the uberkush

    I've just started this hobby and have already gotten addicted. Ordered three times in the past month. I have a micro grow with only two plants at a time, so unless I expand I already have more beans than I can handle. First, I ordered a couple Barney's Farm seeds (not scared of hermies). Then, OG#18 came in stock, so I had to order those. Then I had to take advantage of the promo, so I got the Sour Kush (don't care if it's the REAL headband or not)... Nice to know I'm not alone.

    I think we all start small. If you have the space, you will go big. I started with an aerogarden and now I am runnin a 4x4x7 tent with a 600 for flower and a 2x4x5 with a 400 mh for veg. Now I am building my mantown for man plants. I have the light filter fan and other stuff just debating on whether to get another small tent or hide it in the closet or a shower stall in the extra bathroom that never gets used.

    I am there with you. On top of my collection I have 100s of whiteberry seeds from my plant that hermied. I was thinking about doing some guerrilla action with them.

    I have been collecting lots of stable base strains lately to start some breeding of my own. The money is in the seeds not the weed. (I'm not in it for the money just to save some) Them seed dudes make a killing. Instead of making a few hundred dollars per plant they are making a couple thousand, genius.

    Dammn you guys sound like seed banks. Being this is my first year trying to grow all I have is bag seeds I get from the pot I have been buying for years. But the first chance I get to order some seeds I am going too. Need a job but no body around here needs a old fart they want a young go getters. I have saved 3 35mm film canisters full of seeds and I am going to fill the park up when spring gets here.LOL

    You got that right. And with more states in the Union going legal, it's only going to start making more money. And what about Attitude? They don't even have the overhead of r&d in developing strains. I bet their profit margin is off the charts. I wish I could invest in some 'tude stock.
