I wanted to order some critical seeds from royal queen seeds, but wanted to get any feedback from anyone who has done business with them. I dont even know if they ship to the U.S. Any comments/opinions/info greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Ok, my experiences with Royal Queen has been tainted by user mistake. I received 3 freebies from Royal Queen from Attitude's.
First one I popped was the Blue Mystic. I had a terrible light leak that I wasnt aware of until the Blue Mystic started throwing nanners all over the place. It was the plant nearest the light leak. While no doubt user error was the fault of the hermie, in comparison neither of the other 2 strains I had in the same box hermied. So not sure if it was just weaker genetics or if it were proximity to the light leak.

2nd seed was Special Queen. I gave that to my friend who was starting up his 2nd grow. His first grow was during winter and he had his grow room set up for winter temps. When he started his 2nd grow, summer hit early. We were having 90+ temps in April this year and he was in no way prepared for it. His Special Queen hermied. While the other strains he had going were seeded, it was the queen that dropped the pollen. Once again, grower error, but, once again it was the Royal product that was the most effected.

The good news is both strains were pretty damned good. Even with the hermie issues. My blue mystic maybe had 10 seeds in 2 zips so most of the nanners were sterile. The buds I found that had no nanners or seeds was absolute fire. So I am interested in growing it again at some point, without the light leak.
The Special Queen was fire as well. You can tell its a skunk pheno from the very well rounded buzz it gives you.

I have Ice in veg atm so we will see how it comes out.

ive just popped a pack of five of special queen 100%germ rate a little slower to germ than the dinafems im running, but for $26 who cares? I like to run bushes in 16inch wide pots under 1800 watts usually from 6-8ozs per 30 inch tall trained plants. If it can meet this and isnt gross ill prolly take a cut. Being so skunk based im worried it will look odd next to my leggy ass SDxOG that gets staked in veg lol

Royal queen seeds are good seeds. I bought some Royal cheese seeds. I have to admit just because of the name :) The plant was really healthy, even under 200w cfl. So my experience with them was good.

I just got dobe running Blue Mistic. Awsome plant. Great look, smell, frosty as hell. Grows like a bonsi! But like someone all ready stated, mine too thre nanners around week 6. Have to watch closely as they like to peak out between buds. Had 1 i didnt catch and it opened (fuck!).... They r hanging now and the aroma is out of this world!
 
I have some doubts about Royal Queen seeds,first they are saying they are in business since 1993 and we really heard from them in 2008, so are they such loosers before in the shade that we never heard of them? they do not give any info on the lineage of their hybrids, they probably copy major cup winners, ( do you guys think they created them? LOL) i do not like these companys, owners, brokers, seed brokers company who never grew cannabis or were probably not in this market 8 years from now...to me they just taking advantage with a mass of growers with small knowledge like automatic grower. their contest on facebook are some of the more stupid online, their photos only shows the true ridiculous small diluted hybrids that will need 9 weeks to bring you a small weight of diluted weed. but it will fits perfectly any young grower worry to grow, so you can end up with a ridiculous yield with the same efforts than someone harvesting a lot of great weed.

Auto growers have little knowledge? I grow Royal Queen seeds. Nothing wrong with their stuff. Special Queen #1 is awesome smoke, and a three pack of seeds is $11. Just because you never heard of them before 2008 doesn't mean anything. Do most people judge breeders by the type of contest they run on facebook? Are all of your posts as uninformed as this one?

I can say from my recent experience, that when shipping to USA Royal Queen Seeds is not a good choice. This is based upon my recent experience where they shipped me seeds inside a DVD case and thought that was stealth. However, anyone that knows anything about shipping illicit things knows that this stealth method has been played out for a long time and is actually now a massive red flag. Nowadays, with commonly available fast Internet, the only person that would mail a DVD case is someone who is trying to hide something. So what they think is stealth and still use as a stealth method as of Nov 2014, and have indicated they still plan to use, is like writing "illegal contents inside = please open and remove" on outside of the mail piece. When I complained to them about their use of this method they responded that they know about this but that some still get through. To me means that they know its a red flag, but they still do it, and to me that is ridiculous. They are tiny seeds. Would be much better to just do as Original Sensible did when they sent me seeds that arrived no problem in a very normal looking letter. So if you you still want to order from them, and I must say their website is rad with the persistent shopping cart at top left, specify in the order that they not use stealth, or at least that they not use DVD case. Of course, as you might have imagined if you have read this far, my padded envelope with very noticeable from the outside DVD case inside arrived with green sticker indicating having been opened by customs, and inside the case what I found was a DVD and DVD information fold-out, but none of the items I ordered. And the DVD is in Dutch. Perhaps I will watch it using the subtitles, but I have no idea what it is about AND, most importantly, I still have no seeds.

Do not order from Royal Queen Seeds from the USA, especially not Bitcoin as a payment method. They give you the directions and site to use tho pay since you can not use credit or debit cards from the USA. I placed my order setup my account on their site and through bitcoin and sent $145.USD to the address specified on my order, I then waited 3 days and checked rqs site to see if my order shipped still marked payment not received. I contacted them and they said payment misklut (failed), I wrote to bitcoin and they certified that the money went through and was accepted. So I copy and paste everything and send it to RQS and still they say no money received. They then tell me to send the money via bank transfer or mail cash in envelope. Stating usa can not send bitcoin. No where does it say you can not send bitcoin from the USA ontheir site. Anyway be warne. I am out $145.00 and told basically screw you with kind regards. I have ordered from Nirvana and got my order and was able to payvia credit card. When I had a slight issue with my order Nirvana went out of their way to fix the problem. My advise is use Nirvana and never use RoyalQueenSeeds as they will take your money and say they never received it.

I had dismal luck with their autos. I think there's a ton of better choices out there other than RQS. Dinafem, Hazeman, Pyramid, and Kannabia are strong choices that should not disappoint.

Message from Royal Queen Seeds
Payment for your order was successfully processed.

And at the time that I ordered I just assumed that they ship to the USA. If they did not then they would notice my address at check out and advise of this as is customary at any website. However the website accepted the order and they then they proceeded to process it. I was looking at their website more after customs removed the seeds from the DVD case, and their website said NO SHIPPING to USA.

Do not order from these guys if you are in USA. :(
