How do we pack the seeds?

Product wrapping

At Green Parrot Seeds, we care about the safe arrival of your packages, for that reason we suggest various stealth options for sending the packages in a discrete manor without affecting or damaging your seeds. For more information check out “discrete sending”, all of the products are sent with care and love and are encased in a padded envelope, without any distinctive mark showing its content nor the shop where you bought it from.

Discrete Sending

We understand for discretion reasons people can prefer to receive the seeds discretely whether it’s for security reasons or protection of content. For these reasons we provide multiple sending options to ensure the safe arrival of your seeds.

After filling out the contact information and clicking “save information” you can then choose between various sending options. After choosing to send with either postal service or Express delivery you can select whether you want the seeds repacked or not.

Repacking the seeds involves taking the seeds out of their original packets (which can be bulky or loud metallic boxes) and place them into zip lock baggies (on which we write the name of the seed bank and the strain, and the quantity of seeds inside the package). The seeds will be kept in their plastic tubing but will be made much more slick and more discrete having taken them out of the packages. We must warn you, once the seeds are repacked the order then becomes non-refundable.
Repacked seeds will be put in the package with stickers and other freebies and sent off either a documents or stickers and souvenirs, depending on the order size.

The other option is adding a t-shirt to the order, which can be chosen at the end of the order (available as S, M, L, XL and XXL), by selecting a t-shirt we will mark the package as a t-shirt and place the seeds discretely around the t-shirt which comes in its own plastic casing.

If this isn’t discrete enough for you and have ordered many seeds, you can select repack AND choose a t-shirt and we will put all of the repacked seeds in a white small pocket sized plastic cover which we clip to the tag of t-shirt making it look like part of the t-shirt.

For any specifications about how you’d like to pack the seeds you can contact us via email or Facebook giving us your name and order number and we will happily meet your request.

Shipping questions FAQ

Which Companies do we deliver with?

After proceeding to the checkout and having filled out the contact information, you will have a tab where you can choose your delivery option.
The options vary between Postal service and Express Delivery.

Postal service means the packages are delivered via the national Spanish postal service, which are marked and certified based on their content (t-shirt, stickers and souvenirs or documents), the prices vary based on where the package is being sent to for prices check (here), a tracking number will be provided to you via email shortly after the packages will be sent. The packages will either be sent the same day the order is made, or the day after.

The other option is Express delivery, which means deliveries go via UPS or FEDEX depending on your place of residence. We fully recommend adding your phone number at the end of the order as to help the delivery services ring you in case of any problems.

It is also important to remember to correct fill out the shipping info (address of delivery), once the order is sent it is impossible to change.

What Advantages are there if I repack?

To see the repacking options; go to Discrete Sending. Ultimately discrete sending’s advantages are that the seeds are repacked to make the package look purely about sending the stickers/documents/souvenirs or t-shirts that we have to offer, the seeds become a secondary and are unnoticeable and hidden.

The package that will be sent will never be marked as “seeds” or “cannabis-seeds”, the items we sell on the website are sold as collectable items and souvenirs, so the packages are marked as such. If you happen to purchase a t-shirt we will mark the package as t-shirt.

Meaning if the package is delivered when you are not at home, the receiver will only perceive the package as a t-shirt, from which the recipient isn’t specified (we will not mark the packages with any kind of logo or brand that would imply the sending of seeds).

Why are the seeds packing in zip locks?

Some Seed Banks take the service the whole way by presenting the seeds in their own unique packages, some are big packages, some are metallic, some will have cannabis leaves on the packages and others may even rattle when moved. These types of packages can be problematic when sending, either because the package is just very bulky or because it makes noise.

If you make a big order, we recommend repacking with a t-shirt, this way the package will be slim and smooth and give no indication of any other content other than a t-shirt.

The repackage of the seeds involve moving the seeds to a plastic zip lock bag, where we write the name of the seed bank and of the strain. This will then be slipped into the envelope where will add stickers and keychains and send it off as “Stickers and souvenirs” (and e.g keychains if keychains are what we’ve added).

We recommend discrete sending to countries outside of the European Union, and Express delivery for countries with higher custom control to avoid problems and for a more efficient arrival.

Discrete sends are available to all countries.

Can I use fake data when making and order?

Here at Green Parrot Seeds we ensure you that all the information that enters our systems will not be shared with external sources and remains strictly for delivery purposes only.

Product FAQ

What are the best preservation methods for the seeds?

The seeds in our warehouse are kept in the best of conditions to guarantee and ensure the proper maintenance and freshness of the cannabis seeds. We recommend using similar methods to ours; stocking the seeds in covered recipients in a refrigerated area between 2 to 7 degrees. Keep out of sun and in a dry dark area.

How many female and male seeds can I expect to obtain from my pack of regular seeds? And Feminized?

Feminized seeds have been genetically prepared as to ensure the production and growth of female cannabis plants. Regular seeds on the other hand are natural cannabis seeds cultivated from a pollinated mother and will produce female and male plants.
If you wish to produce your own set of seeds, you will need female and male plants to be able to create a stable “mother plant”. If you are only looking for flower production feminized seeds will suffice (female plants need to be pollinated by a male to start producing seeds, an un-pollinated female will start flowering without producing seeds).

What’s difference between regular and feminized?

Feminized seeds will ONLY produce female plants, meaning you won’t need to kill or remove any male plants growing with your crops. Plus, unfertilized (un-pollinated) female cannabis plants can spend more of their energy producing THC rather than seeds. The only disadvantage of the feminized seeds is the potential drop in quality due to the fact that they’ve been genetically treated.

The Regular seeds, on the other hand, produce authentic high quality females, that come from male and female plants, and in the same natural order, will produce female and male seeds when pollinated.

What is the percentage of female plants found in regular and feminized packs of seeds?

In optimal conditions the regular seeds will provide a 50/50 balance of female and male plants, although most cultivators will suggest a 2:1 female/male ratio. In the case of feminized seeds, practically all banks will guarantee a 99% female plant success rate.

How to increase the probability of getting female plants?

Some factors can influence the production of male and female plants; for example, the conditions in which you’re growing the plants, the space and the available time.
During the first few weeks one can seek to obtain more female cannabis plants by providing the plants with higher concentrations of Nitrogen, higher levels of humidity and low temperatures and blue spectrum lighting.
For male plants we recommend a higher contribution of Potassium.

What’s the difference between auto-flowers and photoperiodic plants?

Auto-flowering varities: The main feature about auto-flowerers is that they start the flowering process (creation of buds) based on their genes and will do so independently of the light that they receive. (Meaning you can give your auto-flowers 18 hours of light a day the whole way through their life cycle).

On the contrary, photo-periodic plants will go from a vegetating cycle (where the plant grows and develops the branches and leaves) to the flowering cycle (the cycle where the plant will produce buds) based on the light scheduling you give it.
This means you will need to give your photo-periodic plant between 16 to 20 hours of light (and from 4 to 8 hours of darkness) a day during the vegetation cycle. When you want it to start producing buds you will need to change the light cycle to 12 hours of light, 12 hours of darkness.
Whereas with an auto-flowering variety the change in light cycles isn’t necessary.

Advantages and disadvantages of Auto-flowerers:

The good thing about auto-flowering plants is that, they germinate quickly, they’re life cycle is very short meaning you can grow up to three auto-flowers a year. Because they’re genetics make them flower you can grow them any time of the year (providing it’s hot and they get enough sun), the auto-flowering plant will be a lot smaller and much more discrete and less of a hassle to look after.

However, the maximum yield of an auto-flowering strain will be considerably less than a photo-periodic strain.

Advantages and disadvantages of Photo-periodic strains:

The good thing about photo-periodic plants is that: They’re life span depends on the light it receives; which is great if you want to control the height of the plant (you can keep it for two weeks or 5 months in the vegetating cycle if you don’t change the light schedule, it’s totally up to you), the yield is considerably higher, can be cloned, can also be pollinated as to great more seeds.

However; the plants are much longer to grow (a natural outdoor cycle for a photo-periodic plant will be 2 months vegetating and 2 months flowering), the plants can be much bigger (and some strains are shown to keep growing even during the flowering period), photo-periodic strains will require more care and attention, and if growing indoors, will need to have a change of light as well as spectrum.

What are the potential risks of stressing a cannabis plant?

A stressed cannabis plant will grow slower, and will have a lower yield. The stress occurs when the plant is in bad growing conditions.

Factors that will stress the plant are:
- Lack or excess water
- Exposure to UV light
- The use of inappropriate nutrients (e.g. toxic ones)
- Exposure to acids
- Pests, fungi, insects and bacteria
- Extreme temperatures, (also regular temperatures changes e.g. moving a plant indoors to a warm temperature and then putting it back outside in the cold)
- Bad growing conditions
- Very low light intensity
- Cold weather

Stress can affect the harvest, production and health of the plant, as well as the outcome of the yield and its quality.
The main problem with stressed cannabis plants is the slow growth rate, the irregularity in flowering and the minimized production.

Stress can also have an impact of the sex of the plant, it happens that stress can turn the plant hermaphrodite which will damage the all-round quality of the flowers, if it produces them. If you want to have a bigger turn out of female plants, then you should avoid any kinds of stress.

Some cultivators apply certain stress methods known as LST or SCROG, these techniques are difficult to achieve and should be researched profusely before being applied. Cultivators do this to create more light reception points on the plant to be able to create a higher yield. The stress to a plant can also, depending on the strain, provoke certain changes in colors of the leaves and the buds.
