New420Guy

Well I figured I would give his genetics a try. First and foremost because I was on a hunt for a good Durban Poison. Came across an article on the web but can't seem to find it now. Claims New420guy's DP to be one of the best available and true to it's origins. I bought 4 strains from him. DP, Monkey Poison, Zkittlez, and Jack Herer. The seeds germed quickly and were vigorous. I popped all but the Monkey Poison. I was happy with the Jack H. But the Zkittlez was a wild sativa dominant that smells nothing like candy or sweetness. Mostly of fuel and a faint floral smell. Zkittlez is supposed to be indica dominant. I would like to mention that I only cracked 1 bean from each strain so you have to consider phenotype variations, I get that. My initial purchase arrived about a week late in a tiny 3x5" bubble envelope totally destroyed. It looked like it was on purpose. Every seed vial was smashed. So he sent it out again. I was also on the hunt for true skunk weed. Given the way his stuff took off I seen he had skunk no1 fems. So I order 2 pks of them and when they arrived he only added 1 pk. So he sent another pk out, no big deal. I then noticed he had green crack back in stock. So I ordered some 4 various 4pks from him and a 10pk of the green crack. When it arrived he gave me skunk no1 and not green crack plus he missed a 4 pk of g13xhaze or something like that lmaooooo. So I sent it back after he corrected the 3rd order. Just the mistakes on the orders aren't enough to deter me from continuing using him but when I told him this DP is nothing like it should be and asked if maybe something might have got mixed up. He said he's sourced from various suppliers and didnt know what he could tell me. Zero concerns. So I will no longer buy from him. Here's the DP. It also hermied on me and was way in the lower back of the monster bush lol. I didn't catch it b4 I pollinated my tent. Not happy with that though. D'OH! 20201215_051322.jpgScreenshot_20201215-065426_Gallery.jpg
Here's the Zkittlez dead center. It's as big as the DP wannabe. At least it had some denser nugzzz. 20201111_050835.jpg

Are those naners?
Your eyes aren't that bad old man haha; that flower is covered in stamens and if you zoom in, you can even see pollen granules in the stamens on the right, midway up the flower. The flower itself reminds me of some bag seed that I grew from a friend last year. All of them turned out to be autoflowers and one was just viny stems full of bracts with no flower structure whatsoever. It was some of the oddest shit I have witnessed in all of my years growing this plant. Positive vibes...

Not sure if this will be helpful to anyone or not... Sorry if not... But thought I'd chime in.

I bought seeds from this guy about 10 years ago when I first started growing... Timeline is right, as his site says "Happy 10 year anniversary for New420Guy" He's a local here in Sacramento..at least he was, not sure where he's at now. He had some interesting stuff and was selling them for $1/bean at the time. OG kush, SFV OG, Blackberry Kush, and a couple others. I bought 50 seeds and honestly never got any to actually germ for me.

Not trying to talk down on him, he was nice and seemed as an honest standup guy. Could have been cause I was such a rookie at the time, but I don't think I ever got any grown out. I did already have a couple grows under my belt before buying from him so I knew how to germinate. I do remember trying with his seeds on multiple occasions but it just never happened for me so I pushed his stuff to the side and kept ordering from over the pond as I was before. Still have most of them in my vault and look at them from time to time and have thought about giving them another try now that I at least kinda know what I'm doing, but I've got so much other stuff to dig into that I just never got around to the retry. Maybe one day, but I won't hold my breath. I'm sure I was at least of partial blame. If it were that they were bunk seeds, I'm sure he's gotten better after 10 years of seed making.

Again, not trashing, just thought I'd share my personal experience 🤙

It smells pretty good and is sticky. The foxtail calyx budzzz are covered in sticky trichomes. It reminds me of the stuff I smoked in the early 80's. Honestly can't wait for the full cure. Other than the fact I wanted Durban poison, which I doubt this is unless it is a lost hidden trait that came through, I think it was cool to grow such an anomaly. I got some free seeds out of it lmaooooo. I will save each cross and try them out some day. Not anytime soon.

He is an alright guy. I have probably 10 different strains from him. I just don't trust them now lol. It's not intentional I just didn't like the lack of response to "Are you sure this is Durban?" Could have said You wanna try a replacement pack or something? Instead I got don't know what to tell you lol

Well after telling Paul how I felt about his lack of concern of the Durban Poison he actually sent me a check to refund my last order. I actually feel bad to have any negative interactions with anyone. To see the check out of the blue like that says alot to his character. I told him how much I appreciate the thought and to void it out of his books. I don't want or expect anything for nothing. I will grow the other seeds eventually and I will give it the benefit of the doubt. So he will definitely try to make up for any bad experiences with his stock. I just wanted to get that out there. It's a true review and he deserves the recognition of his actions. Makes me feel much better.
Even though the Durban Poison didn't live up to my expectations as far as bud structure, I am actually glad to have experience this pheno variation. The weed smells awesome. Floral, piney, and a nice bit of fuel funk. Almost skunky. Looks and reminds me of the stuff I smoked in the 80s. Still an odd bud structure though. Leafy as hell. PIA to try and trim. I can't wait to try it after the cure. I love sativa dominant so far the most. 20201220_171731.jpg20201220_133740.jpg

That was a very cool gesture him taking care of you like that! Very awkward bud structure on that thing. Looks like trim hell😂
Yeah I am glad it worked out like that. I hate negativity and felt bad for thinking he was shady lol
Very strange bud structure indeed but I have seen in looking up 100% landrace sativa. Picture on GrowWeedEasy looks just like it. My buddy said can't always go by looks. Smells pretty good. Smelled better as I was trimming though.

I feel ya...I hate negativity and bad thoughts, but at the same time, shady (people/things) is always lurking, so can't be too careful...
Good smells are always a good indicator of nice smoke. Funny note, I was never a fan of foxtailing,.. Always looked ugly and useless to me. But my first experienced foxtailer was intriguing to say the least... And a yielder... Tasted good too... I'm not so against/(more open) to them anymore
