Strain: white widow fem
Seed to weed time: 122 days
This was an absolute blast. I got lucky and had very little issues with my first grow. A lot of that was due to the massive reading I did on this site ( a good 3 months of reading before joining). The other reason was a great writeup from an old member on this site @jasong. I emulated this grow and had very similar results.
On to harvest day
It wasn’t until I set her on my table in my garage that I realized the amount of work that was about to take place
A few hours in
8.5 hours, 10 or 15 beers, 10 pairs of gloves and 3 bandaids (careful with those fiskars) in
My first skeleton
Had about 8 buds this size. Plant was topped and scrogged so no main cola
And the wet weigh-in for a total of 529.7g plus 35g trim and larf.
Drying required the biggest learning curve for me. This requires more experience, I think, than the rest of the grow. But now they are in their jars sitting comfortably at 60-65% without any assistance (boveda).
This grow was done most of the way with a viparspectra 300 which actually drew 122w from the wall and finished off her last 4 weeks on the qb 136 set to 115w. So right at or above 1g/w. I went in hoping I’d get at least 1oz and walked out with more than 4x that.
I will journal my next grow (as with learning to grow properly there is also learning to journal properly) as I have seen how y’all’s journals help as your journals have helped me tremendously. Love you ILGM forums
