How much liquid nutes to water ratio


#11

@bob31 back shots as requested.
Thanks for your help by the way. Absolute champion. Cheers mate.


#12

@bob31 as another question if you don’t mind, the white widow has shot up in height during the night and I’m worried it will topple over on itself. How would I go by supporting it so it won’t fall over.


#13

@Shizzl no mention of any actual soil in that mix. But it does contain time released fertilizer. I’d recommend you get something without “fertilizer” in it at all. I know how hard it is to do that with your location, so at a minimum keep a close eye on them in case they start to show any signs of toxicity.

You can use a thin dowel or stick like we used to use to tie up tomatoes back in the day You would only want it to loosely support the plant. (something size appropriate to the size of your plant.) Stems are very delicate at this age.

pH water to 5.8

NO NUTRIENTS Soil contains enough

Stretching is usually because the light is too far away.

What are you using for a light? If they are stretching then the light is too far away. How far away is the light before you move it?

Might be as simple as putting something under the pot to raise it up some, but I need to know more about the light wattage etc.

Add some soil around the stem to support it. I did the same with my Gold Leaf when it stretched. (closest plant in the pic)


#14

@bob31 yeah the good soil is hard to find where I live. I might just try some potting mix for the next grow.

The light I’m using is a led light. Mars hydro 300w.
Currently sitting at 24 inches away from the plant which is what the instructions said to sit it at.
The stem looks like it has thickened up a little bit now so that’s a bonus.


#15

I will add some more soil around them stem just for a precaution as you recommended though. Thanks for that @bob31


#16

Ok good deal. Just keep an eye on them with that soil in mind! They look great!


#17

Potting mix contains composted pinebark. I would definitely ph the soil. They have testers for that on Amazon, https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B017GQ9VVY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Dang, great price!! I just ordered this myself. :heart_eyes:


#18

don’t waste your money. those are notoriously inaccurate. The best way to test your soil is in a slurry of pH water and soil. Let sit 10 minutes and check pH

pH two ounces of water to 6.5 Add tablespoon of soil wait ten minutes and check the pH

@charle

PS I bought one a few months back. They are junk.


#19

@bob31 quick question for you mate. Roughly how many weeks should I expect for flower period for my white widow. I’m currently half way through week 7.


#20

You should be getting close but a pic would help. @Shizzl

Brown pistils and mostly milky to some amber trichomes


#21

@bob31 she still looks clear on the trikes. Unless that’s what you would classify as milky? I honestly wouldn’t know.

#23

Here are some pics to help you decide what yours look like.

#24

Thanks for the pics @bob31. I’ll try my luck and see if I can try and get mostly amber trikes. I want the plant to rock my socks off and make me play PlayStation for hours. I haven’t smoked in years so I’m really looking forward to trying the white widow.


#25

Much of that is strain dependant. Clear is undeveloped thc. Amber is basically dying thc.

An indica dominant strain tends to make you sleepy and a sativa dominant strain makes you feel energetic., But there are many variables.

Here is the white widow profile from leafly WW is a 50/50 hybrid.

Let me know how the white widow works out for ya!


#26

Too easy. Thanks for that.
I will be cutting the main cola off tomorrow as I’m happy with how it looks now. Then I think I’ll let the rest of the plant get a few more days still growing and developing and then chop the rest.
Really excited to try it. I’ll let you know how it goes and thanks so much for your help.


#27

@Shizzl how’d the partial harvest go?


#28

@bob31 sorry for the delayed response.
I didn’t end up chopping the main cola as I think my eyes were playing tricks on me when I was checking the colour of the trikes.
I took the plant outside into sunlight and checked it again and it was amber on the sugar leaves but milky on the actual buds.
I decided against chopping it and have since given her another slight trim.
I am checking the trikes colour everyday and hopefully she is amber on the buds soon.
When I was giving her a haircut, 1 little itty bud accidentally got the chop so the bud is currently drying in the rack. Might sample that next weekend.


#29

@bob31 I have chopped the entire plant today.


#30

She looks ready! Are you doing a wet and dry weight? We have another topic here for posting those along with a pic of your harvest!
