The Choice Seedbank Review: Top 420 Seed Banks Ship to the USA

saltboxgallery 0

We would rate Choice Seed bank an decent 420 seed bank. Not the best, but decent and reliable.

However, when comparing their website to the top seed banks we are rating we did notice signicant problems with The Choice Seedbank.

Follow us along and see if you agree we are being picky or not?

First, Feminine cannabis, photoperiod, auto flowering, flowering time, just arrived and whether the plant grows indoor, outdoor or in a greenhouse are all there on the website. However, they are hidden.

There is a white search box to the top right of the website that says quick seed finder.

To find the categories however such as auto flowering, flowering time, and feminized, what you must do is click on advanced search just below the box. Then, and only then do you get the list of various categories to click on.

We don't know about you but we hate when a seed website lists hundreds of brands, most of which we don't know without dividing things up into categories.

The other irritation, and it is a major one is there is no category or characterization as to THC content.

Yes, each strain of cannabis seed has a nice description of characteristics of the cannabis when smoked, such as: "provides a stoned/high, all round buzz" but no mention of THC content anywhere. Why? THC is one thing almost every cannabis cultivator cares about.

There are plenty of positives to Choice seeds however.

First, there are nearly 90 products which Choice Seeds sells that allow you to buy a single seed. That's nice. Many amateur cannabis horticulturists want to "always be testing" and trying something new.

Being locked into a single larger purchase, even if it's simply a 5-seed pack discourages experimentation.

Another thing we like is that their FAQ's, the heart of the good stuff and the essential details is right on top in the navigation bar.

What are the essentials? First, that they do ship worldwide to the USA.

Second, those packages are shipped discreetly.

Finally, that they accept credit cards (other than Mastercard and Maestro,) wire transfers, bitcoin and cash. Also, that they ship by Royal Mail and overseas packages generally arrive in 7-15

What do customers say?

Here's how one customer charterized his transaction. He said he ordered March 14 and recieved his order on March 15. He raved that the packaging was great and all the seeds were intact.

He did gripe a little that the packaging did not come in the original breeder packaging, but that he would defintitely be a return customer.

We'd have no hesitation to recommend this British seed back as reliable, but we do believe you could do better.

saltboxgallery 0

If you are planning to keep a leopard gecko, then you first need to learn and research about their lighting and temperature needs to live in confinement. 

Leopard geckos are nocturnal animals, they are more active, do almost activities during the night and sleep all day. They do not need lots of light but the proper lighting also very important for the overall well being of leopard geckos.

These following are the best light for leopard gecko that we recommend to you in order to help you avoid overwhelming when choosing a light for your pets: OMAYKEY 100W 2 Pack Ceramic Heat Lamp VS. Zoo Med Basking bulb pack Day and Night Combo.

#1 Temperature

When it comes to best UVB light for leopard gecko, the temperature is also an important part because the lighting is the way to provide heat. Unless you are using the heat pads to warm up your pets from below, you will not need the heating bulb as the heat source.

The Zoo Med Basking Combo is the all in one since it includes a daylight spot lamp and an infrared heat lamp.  The reptile Basking Spot is 75 watts will do the work of provides heat for you leopard geckos during the day. Due to two heat bulbs, this combo will serve heat for your pets 24 hours a day.

It could last 9000-15000 hours and so on. When it comes to heating, there is no much lamp that can more effective than a ceramic bulb.

#2 Night time lighting

Leopard geckos are nocturnal reptiles, they mainly active in the nighttime. If you are providing them with a while lighting all day. It will affect on regulating your Leo’s internal clock. Instead, to avoid bother your pets at night, you should offer them red or blue light.

saltboxgallery 0

Reptiles in the enclosure have to be provided with all the requirements if you went them to thrive well. Reptiles rely on external sources of heat to keep their bodies warm. Besides, when you keep reptiles as pets, you will need to serve them the best UVB bulb for processing vitamin D, and synthesizes calcium.

This post will help you easier to choose UVB light bulbs by introducing to you two popular bulbs: Repti-Sun 10.0 UVB VS. Evergreen Pet Supplies 100 Watt Mercury Vapor Bulb.

#1 Types of bulbs

Repti-sun is Fluorescent bulbs. Fluorescent bulbs are the ideal options if you are a beginner or limited on budgets since Fluorescent bulbs have reasonable prices and fairly easy to mount.

Fluorescent bulbs are also safer to use if you do not have any experience for reptile lighting. These bulbs will provide only UVB rays for your reptiles. That means they do not radiant heat and you will still need a basking bulb as well.

Evergreen Mercury Vapor bulb, on the other hand, is the all-in-one bulb. It will be the solution for reptile keepers, who’ve got some experience in reptile lighting. A Mercury Vapor Bulb will provide UVA, UVB and heat for your reptiles.

You will not need to set up the complex lighting with more than one bulb in your cage. Mercury Vapor Bulbs are more expensive, lasting for longer and also stronger than Fluorescent UVB bulbs.

#2 Life span

In order to get the best result from the bulbs, it is better to replace the bulbs for a period of time. Even if the bulbs still emit the light, but they may no longer effective and provide enough amount of UVB that your reptiles require.

Repti-Sun bulb will provide an adequate amount of UVB for most of your pets and will last anywhere from 6 to 12 months on average. However, you should replace it with the new bulb for about 6 months.

Evergreen mercury vapor bulb will last for longer than Repti-Sun. You can replace this bulb every 12 months. This will ensure that your reptiles still receive an optimal level of UVB that is being put out.

#3 The tank to use for

There are differences between Repti-Sun 5.0 and 10.0. You should use the Repti-Sun 5.0 for the tanks that re 10 gallons. And 10.0 Repti-Sun bulb can work great with at least 40 gallons tank.

Evergreen 100 Watt bulb also should be used for 40 gallons tanks. If you are keeping more than 40 gallons tank, you can use the 160 Watt Mercury Vapor Bulb.

Historically the Saltbox Gallery has always had a spring show. We have been in the process of planning this year's show for early May, however in light of the current Covid-19 outbreak we are going to postpone our annual spring show. Making this decision was tough for us, but it was an easy decision to make. The health of you, our customers, our devoted followers, our friends, our family is of the utmost importance to us.

We have decided to move our show to the weekend of July 31st - August 2nd. We’re excited to be on Plum Island during the height of the summer season. (and the end of greenhead season!) We’ve already begun the process of planning our show, this delay only gives us more time to provide all of you with the best show possible. We’re going to have a blast and we can’t wait to see you all.

Stay tuned for updates on what our member artists are working on.

Artist member Candy Way has been busy painting images of four siblings. She was commissioned to paint them for a gift. Instead of one large painting she and the client opted for four 7 x 5 paintings to hang as a grouping. This now allows each child to take their painting in the future. She takes commissions if you are interested.

Happy holidays from the Saltbox Gallery!
