I just grew 2, 12 plant batches of Killer Kush Fast, I'm a grower with over 12 years experience and am considered by my peers to be the best, I'm very scientific about my grows, my water is run through an RO system and then through 2 resin beds to obtain absolute 000 on a TDC meter, and I add Cal-Mag so don't bother sharpshooting me about anything, this is how I've made my living for years and am always consulted by other growers when they have problems or want advice, once again I don't grow a couple of plants in a tent or closet and then parade around giving people advice, THIS STRAIN IS AN ABSOLUTE JOKE, that after 2 batches has put me in the poor house, up to 4 years ago I had 2 strains that were excellent and the real thing that I had been running for 6 and 7 years from mothers that even though they needed new mom's grown out every 5 months or so kept their vigor for 6 and 7 years (Alpha, and Blueberry Diesel), I would also occasionally order seeds to try a different strain and give my new mom's from those 2 strains a little break, during those 7 years the strains I would occasionally try would be what they were claimed to be, 4 years back those strains of mine finally lost their vigor and I started looking for a new strain to work with, thanks to these unscrupulous breeders who put unstable strains like this on the market I'm being driven out of this business by these so called strains like this one, it's extremely unstable and out of both 12 plant batches they each looked like they had 4 different pheno's in each batch, some of them stayed shorter like an Indica dominant strain and others went to the ceiling with nuggets at every node that were only the size of Hazelnuts and had to be tied over, I've been doing this for years and I can tell you from running 2 batches at a time in different cycles I have pull a harvest every month for 12 years so you do the math on that one, this business is turning into the biggest bunch of BS with all these unscrupulous breeders and banks (who sell these seeds without obviously trying them first) and just repeat what the so called breeders tell them to say in their ads, this entire industry better start getting it's act together because you're ruining us growers who do this for a living and rely on good stock to work with, one of the biggest problems with this whole thing nowadays is all the amateurs that buy these seeds and grow a couple of plants in a tent or closet, if you don't grow batches of at least a dozen at a time YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT and have no right getting on a forum site and saying all this "man it was dank" and "dude it was budalicious", all you're doing is screwing up people who rely on a strain to be legit, nobody has any right calling this unstable mess a strain, as typical from all these latest jokes of mess they're too unstable from not being back bred enough (if this one was even back bred at all) because everyone's in such a hurry to get the "latest thing" out there to impress everyone, this entire industry is being ruined by this sort of shoddy breeding and false claims by the breeders and banks, the scam artists breeders and sellers of junk like this should be ashamed of themselves for putting something like this joke on the market and claiming the BS about how much they'll yield, for 4 years I've been beating my head off the wall dealing with this sort of mess, if you grow a couple of plants in a tent YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT so stay off these sites and quit yapping away about growing because all you're doing is making it harder for someone who knows what their doing with your excitement about smoking something that you grew yourself, all these strains are hybrids of hybrids of hybrids and they've all lost their natural vigor, these supposed breeders nowadays need to get off their asses and do what the original breeders dId when they came up with the original strains that all these have been breed too many times over these last 5 or 6 years, they need to go into the wilds and get new stock to start from because I can tell you from putting out a twelve plant batch every month for the past 4 years trying all these new strains that they're all junk and have put me in the poor house, thanks a lot to an industry that USED to be credible for ruining me, I'm loosing my home now because of your unscrupulous business ways, but don't worry the really important thing is the breeders managed to get my money in your pocket which I see is obviously the important thing.

Hi D Craig,
What can I say? I completely agree with you. It is a shame that nowadays most "breeding" should be simply called seed producing. To find stable strains is getting harder and harder, mainly because most breeders are just crossing hybrids with hybrids and selling their F1's. My personal advice, from grower to grower: grow the strains you know they work well, and do not grow anything "new" unless you have good references from trusted growers. I'm basically a clone grower mate, mainly because I've also thrown away lots of money with "top seeds". 90% of the seeds I pop, I've produced them myself. Hermaphroditism can also be a problem with all these new American hybrids, since some of them actually come from plants with monoecious traits. But, again, some breeders out there do not care about it, or do not even warn the client about the genetics he's purchasing.
Let's hope one day people will be willing to grow stable, trustable strains just like we were doing 20 years ago!
