Thanksgiving POT-Luck!

The ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Team invites everyone to the Thanksgiving POT-Luck Dinner hunt this week. This is your chance to get a fancy dinner table all set up for a feast and a random Fall Harvest seed, along with goodies provided by eight ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Authorized Dealers.

Visit the display "on the dock" at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Central, and click the green info board. You'll get a notecard with basic instructions and the landmarks to eight Authorized Dealers. Each one has a small table with one food item (turkey, stuffing, jello, bread, pecan pie, etc.)  Most are easy to find, but there are some little challenges along the way. Take a moment to look around at what our amazing affiliates have going on, too!

Once you've made the rounds, return to ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Central and rez the items on the big dinner table. Then click on the table. It will verify everything and then give you a dinner table and a random Fall Harvest seed! (When you're done, be sure to clean up your dishes -- take them back into inventory or delete them -- so the next person can use the table!)

Speaking of the Fall Harvest Limited Editions, seed packs containing one each of Cranberry Kush, Royal Caramel, and Sour Apple are available at the dock, too, so you can complete your set! These are very low potency, slow-growing outdoor plants with tasty foliage colors that will look great in your holiday grows. Packs of 3 seeds are L$400 only at ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ Central!

FINAL UPDATE:  A total of 367 Typhoon Limited Edition seeds were purchased, raising a total of L$63,620 ($250 USD) for Typhoon Haiyan Yolanda relief! Thanks to everyone who supported this effort by buying seeds!

ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™ is releasing a new LE to raise funds for survivors of Typhoon Haiyan Yolanda which has affected a total of 9.5 million people across the Philippines -- and displaced at least 600,000 -- when it slammed into the country on Friday11/8, according to the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. Survivors were described as being in desperate need of clean drinking water and food. It was likely the deadliest natural disaster to beset this poor Southeast Asian nation.

TYPHOON is 3.25 m tall & 2.3 m wide, medium growth & is an outdoor variety. This LE was designed very large to mirror the huge need for humanitarian help & also the amazing golden  colors were sampled from photos of "Star Fruit", the famous fruit indigenous to the Philippines. Each golden seed of hope is L$180 & will be sold until our goal of $360 USD is met! 

UNICEF is taking donations to help provide children with shelter, clean water, nutrition and vaccines. Representatives said its staff in the Philippines is being repositioned to help in relief efforts and 66 tons of emergency supplies are being sent from Copenhagen.
Donations can also privately be made to UNICEF at unicef.org/support.


CARE is on the ground in disaster-affected areas of the Philippines. Check out our blog for first-hand accounts and impressions from our emergency team.

Basic Pricing Guide For Beginner's by Doc Stoney

How To Price Your Plants
A Basic Guide To Selling Your ḈḁṇṇḁḇḭṦḼ™

Your harvest has grown & you are looking for Lins, but aren't too sure how the pricing begins.
Some go low, others stay HIGH...and you're left in the middle, wondering why?
Truly it's not "rocket science" Man! With a little math you'll have it all planned!

OK, so we have all been here. We finally get our first great harvest and we are ready to offer it to all. How much do we charge? Really, time and the market shall tell. The best way for me has been a simple formula that helps me keep my prices to what I feel is fair for both buyer and seller.
Start with the price of the seeds,
some are 60 l while LE's are a bit more.
So starting with 60 L is a great base.
Now add 10 L per generation for food.

So now we get to part that confuses a lot of people.
As we all know females have a higher tendency to pass foliages in their genetics but never forget that males can as well.

I myself add 50 L per LE foliage in the direct line, meaning back to grand parents for a male . Add 100 L per LE foliage in the females. We also add 50 - 100 L for any traits we breed in specially like extreme growth rates, bright, non bright etc. Keeping in mind while mutations are special we cannot control them. So to some a 0.8 bred in bright will be more valuable than a 1.0 mutation that happened when the seed was harvested. We also want to consider other factors such as, was it a flash LE? Is it a rare or brand new LE? These are all factors that affect pricing.

So let's see some examples:
Gender: Male
Generation: 4
Maturity: 65%
Foliage: Northern Lights Bright (1.0)
Potency: High (3.000)
Growth Rate: Extreme (6.622% per cycle)
Lighting: Indoor/Outdoor
Size: Normal
Height: 0.822 meters
Width: 0.794 meters
CannabiSL version 2.11c

Parents Genotypes:
Mom: Northern Lights X Water Melon, 2.999580, 5.246918, 1, 0.867799, 0.816489, 0.922893
Dad: Water Melon X Water Melon, 2.999511, 5.998047, 1, 0.720396, 0.755000, 0.720513

So here we have a male gen 4 hybrid.
to price this man we look to all the factors listed above:
60 (seed price)
40 ( 10 L x 4 generations of feeding)
100 for possible foliage passing (see how both mom and dad have the watermelon LE)

Then add 100 l per extras that you bred in specially (the extreme growth rate).
So this little man I would price at 300 L.

And Here A Pure Female:
Gender: Female
Generation: 2
Maturity: 85%
Foliage: Sticky Punch (0.0)
Potency: High (3.000)
Growth Rate: Very Fast (5.000% per cycle)
Lighting: Indoor
Size: Normal
Height: 2.350 meters
Width: 1.900 meters
Yield: 3 seeds (3 left)
CannabiSL version 2.11c

Parents Genotypes:
Mom: Sticky Punch, 3, 4, 0, 1.9, 0.02, 2.35
Dad: Sticky Punch, 3, 4, 0, 1.9, 0.02, 2.35

Base - 100 L per seed (This is a 3 seed plant)
Food -  20 L
Foliage - 100 L
Newest LE - 200 L

So This Girl I Will Price at 620L
In summary:
Base Price ( 60 - 100 L per Seed)
+ 10 L Per generation for feeding
Plus 50 to 100 for foliages that could possibly pass
Plus 100 per special bred in trait
Plus 200 For Brand New Or Flash LE

In Closing;
   I want to say that is just a guide as to how I personally price my plants. Hope it helps
