I decided to give these a shot for my first grow. Hearing the success stories of others, it seemed like a safe option. It was anything but! Out of 3 seeds: 1 did not germinate, 1 started strong and stopped growing, the other is very mediocre. As a comparison, it's half the size of another strain growing side by side to it (shark widow). A Month in, and the plant is very small. Growing under a 300W full spec. LED

Hi Gaspard, thanks for your comment. I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have much success with the seeds. If you think that the seeds themselves were to blame for the germination issues then you can make a reclamation here.
As for the variety itself, I would really only recommend these seeds to someone looking specifically for really small plants. This generation of autoflower genetics was the very first wave of ruderalis hybrids available on the market some ten years ago, when the autoflower sector was in its infancy. Naturally, over the years autoflower breeding has progeessed in leaps and bounds, meaning that these early Lowryder crosses have since been superceded by superior "Auto XL" genetics. Nowadays autoflowers are bigger, more vigorous and more productive than ever, with the "quality gap" between non-autos and autos rapidy closing.
Unless you're severely restricted to growing very small plants, I'd recommend trying some of the more productive auto varieties, just go to our Seed Selector and have a look for high-yielding Automatic seeds to see the selection.
Best wishes and happy growing!
