Init mate, I've had a few go wrong in the past n it is heartbreaking, especially when the end is in sight n you get a pest or mould infestation or some shit! I was kinda thinking more along the lines of people donating known hardy strains. I fucked up my first couple of grows, but then for my third I was given some kush cuttings off a mate. He knew they could take some abuse (and they did lol) the grow came out ok and it gave me a right confidence boost! If we could do that for a few others it would be great!
I get what you mean mate, my first ever grow was 3 bagseed in tiny little pots in my kitchen window lol, 2 of them turned out to be fussy as hell sativa types that had all kinds of deficiencies from about a week in and I was clueless what to do with them, the other was mainly indica and grew fine despite being in tiny pots with tomato nutes, hardly any light and a grower that was in over his head. Even with all that I got more off it than the other 2 combined.
Money's tight but I'd be up for getting a couple of packets of something tried and tested like skunk, northern lights, afghanis etc, something known to be easy to grow even with minimum knowledge and skills and still have decent yield/strength.
A lot of percy growers I've known have been put off because they started with something too complicated or fussy and it went tits up through deficiencies and the like, sending out something along those lines would hopefully encourage them and show that once you figure it out its not so hard, if you start with a tough, fast strain you get all the experience plus less time to fuck it up in lol
We were all newbie growers once, some of us got it first time, some would have taken a few grows to get things straight in their heads, but at the end of the day something made us all persevere till we got it, and were rewarded for it with being able to take something from a tiny seed to massive buds we enjoy every day, I reckon as long as we can keep the security issue in check we should do everything we can to help those growers struggling to get past the beginning of their journey, and make it a positive experience
