FWIW I started out on ILGM beans. They grow. Some of the strains get bulky. Uhm... they have leaves on them...

See where I'm going? LOL

Didn't mean to ping on your plants, they look great, just ILGM beans in general.

Their THC content usually came in as advertised, and each strain they have is different from the others, and has a different profile. But if you grow 10 beans they'll likely all be the same exact plant. That's all - there's no pheno hunting that I found. no surprise fire. that kind of thing. Their superskunk smelled like Juicy-fruit gum when it cured. If you'rve tried that, compare notes with me (I got 10+10 free 🤪 ). Northern Lights was a sharp menthol.

But if I was in the business and wanted to sell bud that I could count on harvest weight estimates being pretty close, and the customer getting the same thing next time that they liked last time - those are the beans.

Mate I agree totally so your not pinging on my grow . I appreciate opinions and past experience with strains and breeders . It’s all positive feedback to influence purchase and expectations .To be honest I expected more from ILGMs Autos after seeing vision of others results and read your input on another growers Northern Lights journal on this forum . I grew 4 GSC Autos from them and they all looked similar although a couple were skinny fluff bud and the other 2 were same type bud but heavier thicker bud . Got a pretty good view on what to expect from the breeder that is pretty well as you’ve described. You seem to get the more refined specialist breeders that set the bar and the mass producers that are happy just punching out a solid steady product . Dinafem is similar . They’ll give you a solid product but nothing that stands alone .

Exactly - it's Budweiser weed. It'll get you drunk.

The stuff on here is like the micro-brews with flavor.

I think the chucking part most closely relates to wine and grapes. Cultivation of certain profiles to get what you are looking for, perfecting stuff, while ILGM (and a lot of the Dutch breeders) put out box after box of their wine.
