Photos from happy home growing customers
We have grown the Gold Leaf strain for 3 seasons now. We ordered our first set of seeds of this strain when Bergman first offered the seeds. We have not been unhappy with it in any manner. Each time we've grown it the plants have been healthy, disease resistant, and hardy. We've had excellent yields from every plant, and the effects are as advertised. It has become one of our favorite types to grow and smoke. The consistency between seasons is very appreciated, as we can be relatively certain that this type will grow well, give great yields, and be good smoke. What else could we ask for in a strain? If you've never bought this strain before, go ahead and do it; it will be good, produce well, and be resistant to some of the more common ailments that affect cannabis when growing. And if consistency is something you're after, this one does very well from grow to grow, season to season. Many strains have difficulty with that one thing from season to season.....consistency of growth patterns, taste, etc.; this one does it well.
This is the only place I buy my seeds from anymore they are the best
Experience with Robert Bergman and Bergman’s Gold Leaf fem.
I received Bergman’s Gold Leaf Fem at least 10 days before I expected to receive them! Michigan just legalized growing up to 12 plants for personal use on a ballot proposal during the 2018 mid term elections. I’m exstatic! Years ago, I tried to grow a couple plants with minimal success. But those were very forbidden times and growing technology was sparse at best. I am now researching and investing slowly to grow the best marijuana I can. I bought 10 seeds. As a test run, I planted 4 seeds. In just over 4 days, 3 plants broke the ground and less than two weeks later have the first set of real leaves, the single leaves which are about 3/8-1/2 inches long. This is at natural lighting conditions. I have a grow tent and an LED grow light due to arrive tomorrow and can’t wait to set it up and introduce my new plants to controlled lighting. I just received Bergman’s fertilizer and mold inhibitor etc. to keep my plants healthy and vigorous. I am excited about all my results and can’t wait to try the fruits of my labor! Thank you Robert Bergman for pioneering my experiment and passing knowledge on to me, and all other new beginners to the world of self growers of this wonderful, natural plant that has so many benefits. You have earned my trust, expect to receive much more of my business in the future! Jim
