I have never seen a more problematic group of clones in my life. Back in July I had made an order with Clone Queens. I was excited because of the vast selection, availability, fair prices, and delivery. The customer service was very good, nice staff to deal with. I had very high hopes. The delivery arrived and right off the bat I noticed powdery mildew. The clones were not in the best condition and although they weren't the greatest clones I'd ever seen, they weren't the worst either. I immediately treated them for powdery mildew, got them transplanted, and started them to veg. I let them veg for 38 days and then started flowering. On about the 9th day of flowering both of the Platinum Bubbas started spitting out huge clusters of male flowers mixed in with the female flowers. Hermaphrodites!
About a week later after continually looking through the other plants, I started seeing more male flowers popping up. These were in smaller quantities then the Platinum Bubbas, but still enough to seed the whole crop.I have now had to
destroy 7 of my 10 plants. At least those remaining 3 plants have turned out to be big and healthy and thankfully NO MALE FLOWERS! That's great that Clone Queens guarantees their clones for 30 days, however it takes a little longer before you really know what your dealing with. And besides, how do you compensate someone for 6 weeks of work, not to mention soil, electricity and nutrients. The big tip off about Clone Queens should have been their claim of verified genetics tested through a laboratory in Europe. I don't believe such a lab exists. Sure, there are labs that can test for THC,CBD,CBN, molds and fungus, as well as pesticides, but they have yet to come up with a lab for genetics testing of cannabis.
Clone Queens can easily put this to rest by giving out the name and web address of this laboratory if one really exists. By the way, I'm not a newbie. I have 32 years of growing experience. This disasterous grow was the result of poor quality clones and genetics, not grower error. This company is perpetrating a massive fraud on the medical marijuana community by selling poor quality clones that contain fungus, insects, and unusable male plants. Please, before you order from this company, check out the numerous complaints logged all over the internet, and be aware that this company is NOTORIOUS for planting fake positive reviews to bury negative reviews. If you need medical marijuana clones, Clone Queens is NOT the place to do business.
