When I think of a seed bank, I think of some sterile white walled hallway with many doors. Each of which has a "Do not disturb" sign on the knob. Through looking glass a marijuana male and a harem of juicy females sit and wait under a bright white light. A few weeks later Mr. Mary Jane's got about a thousand kids to feed. Thankfully, you, me and that dude, paid 50+ bucks for those kiddies and in walks the man with white gloves to snatch up 15 of them, slap um into a t-shirt or miniature Big Ben souvenir and off they go on a worldly adventure. However, lately I've been thinking - these seed banks most likely give a handful of various seeds to trusted "contractors" who grow and pollinate the seeds in there basement somewhere, show up a few months later and dish out a couple thousand seeds for 5 bucks a seed. A various % are put through the ringer for autoflowering and femenization, while the rest sit in their shoe box in the corner. Which brings me to my point. How do we know the seeds we buy are actually what they say they are? When someone clicks Skunk #1, how do they know they aren't getting Afghan or OG Kush? Also, the F1 strains - how do we know those are F1 strains? At what point did that WW CCup Winner from 1996, remain alive to continue giving out seeds? Mothers lose potency and vigor over their lives - so even those clones aren't really the same plant from 1996. (1996 is an arbitrary date, just for illustration) Meaning, when will seed banks start giving some insight into how they create their seeds? The process used and the measures taken to ensure quality? The first company that I can find that does that - will have my business, and if they can get the seeds past customs, they'll keep it. As it is now, I'm mostly just settling for the one that doesn't have a website that looks like it was made during Web1.0. Much of what I've said has been facetious and not intended to offend anyone - so if ya'll have some info about the seed bank process let me know, I'm interested to see how this whole thing works.
