Also K2 (widow x hindu) that was phenomal at that time !
With a PUNGENT smell of ether/turpentine oil, that remembers White Russian quite well with an insane punch to the face type o high.

Do you guys know this strain ?
Personally this strain was too strong for me and like the B-52 better but hey to each its own, right ?

Peace

Hi everyone

The thread is 11 years old but scrolling on the forum, I found this garbage and thought I couldn't let it go.

Nirvana has had close ties with the now extinct Positronics (Wernard Bruining) which is a legendary seedbank, and whose owner was the first to open a coffeshop in Amsterdam.

Nirvana is an excellent seedbank, on par with Sensi Seeds and Dutch Passion. They sell feminized AND regular seeds (double the amount of work..) and their strain are absolutely perfect. I used to think that the more expensive the better (remember Pukka seeds ? 200$ for an Afghani Skunk 10 pack ?) Well this is all bullshit.
I challenge any serious grower to dare say Nirvana Seedbank ain't worth shit.
Over the years, I've tried almost 10 strains of theirs.
From B-52 to Haze #13, New Purple Power, NLxShiva, Citral, Aurora Indica, California Orange, Swiss Cheese, NYPD.....
All were exceptional. The only one that I found disappointed is the Skunk Red Hair because it didn't produce much.

So get your facts right before bitching about a Seedbank that's been producing seeds since before you were born. That's too easy to say "scammer, rip-off, ladyboy wonderland" when you can't grow weed correctly and you're careless.

At the moment, I can't grow, but very soon, I'll show you was Nirvana seed is about in a large selection, and you'll see that you should've turned your tongue 7 times before doing bad publicity to a Seedbank that never asked you to buy their seeds and don't need you as a customer anyway.

Feel free to leave your opinion mates, don't leave me alone :)

Respect to you guys,
Prov

yes she's from sensi i've yet to be dissappointed with any of the strains i've grown like the old addage goes you get what you pay for and if i'm not mistaken they've been doing this the longest you can go to any forum and ask some might say they are high priced but i've yet to hear anyone say that they were not pleased with the end product ie the buds no matter what strain also back to your selection a guy on weedcity's forum said his started out smelling like cat pee but finished smelling like a dead animal very stinky an absolute must for a carbon scrubber

Shit man that's a lot of different strains on the go. Good luck with them all.

My plan is to get a pack of Jack Herer and hopefully get one nice, branchy, heavy-yielding mother that I can use for cuttings. Is JH worth the price? I'm growing for myself, so I'm more interested in quality than anything else...

I've no real experience with growing seeds as I've been cloning one super-potent mother plant since I started this hobby around a year ago.
 
I have no choice now cos my mother got infested with spider mites and I freaked out and binned her before they had a chance to migrate to my flowering crop.
 
I hope I don't have your experience with the seeds, mike, but all I want is one good mother plant really.
 
I'll definitely be staying well clear of Nirvana...

in the winter for some reason i get 60 to 70 % female and don't have to run the ac but in summer i get higher % of males 50 to 70 % but at the same time it is mainly with nirvana seeds the skunk#1 i got from sensi so far it's at 50% female but i only germed 2 seeds the 3 strains i got from kc brain is useuly pretty evan 50% unless i put the seeds in small pots and leave them in them till they flower but with nirvana's i seems to get 60% males no matter what i do i evan planted 1 whole pack out doors to see if it was becuase of too small of pots and 60% turned out to be males i'm not say that they are doing something to the seeds. however it may be that i may be streaching for it here but maybe myway of growing is so much differant then the way the seeds were produced that it stresses them and also from all the seed only had 1 turn hermy out of 130 seeds my strawberry cough i got from dutch passions is what pisses me off $65 dollars for 10 seed only got 3 normal plants and 1 that had to be babied for first 2 months of its life but all for that germed were female  from the regular seed ie nonfemed and got 3 good mothers with the 4th a few weeks from harvest to see if she will be a good mother

Mike, not trying to start an argument or anything, but are you sure Nirvana are to blame for your problems. By the law of average, if they're selling non-feminised seeds, you should be getting around 50-50 male-female at least. 
 
Environmental factors can affect whether a seed becomes male or female and any kind of stress is known to lead to a higher proportion of males. Is it possible that your grow set-up might be causing the males?
 
The other possibility is that Nirvana themselves are doing something to the seeds that somehow makes them produce mostly males. I find this hard to believe. If Nirvana seeds were uniformly rubbish, they'd be out of business pretty fast.
 
You sound like you know what you're doing, so I'm not saying it's definitely your fault or anything. Out of interest, when you grow seeds from other seedbanks, do you get a good proportion of females?
