Default Mr.Nice seeds packs, 15 or 18 seeds ?

Hi there,

I have a little question.

Why some seed sellers sell the Mr.Nice seedpacks with 15 seeds and others whit 18 seeds ?

Do some sellers open packs or it's the MNS seedbank that changed the amount of seeds per pack ?

Hi,

Don't quote me on this but I'm pretty sure MNS weight the seeds, the auction packs seem to come with between 15 seeds to 20 something seeds a pack.

It wouldn't shock me to find out seedbanks were opening packs and taking a few out to make up more packs.

They advertise as 15 per pack but always come with 18+ seeds. I figure it's kind of like overweighing a bag of weed, the customer never complains.

Unless something has changed you will get at least 18 per pack. At least I have never gotten less and the most was 24 that I counted in a pack. Of course they do have some packs in dispensaries in the USA that only come with 10 seeds I believe it was.

yeah, iirc the policy was they price it at 15 / guarantee 15 seeds per pack, but typically throw in a few extra seeds because they try to do business right. Most of my packs have been between 18 and 20, but theres been at least one with 17. The intended goal is to give you the 15 plants you expected, so the extra seeds offset failed germs etc

different seedbanks list this how they want

This is incorrect.

This is exactly correct.

we put more than 15, in case a few get broken on the way etc...

Somethings when we are low of stock, specifically for exclusive limited edition strains we only put 15.

But, in most case its over 15 (18), with 15 being the minimum

Aloha!

Cheap seeds do not necessarily equate to poor quality. Inexpensive seeds purchased from the MNS auction often give >90% germination. The extra seeds included are Easter eggs!
