White widow is supposed to be a hardy strain that is a good strain for beginners to work with.

What do you mean just pop them in your bucket? In a net pot with hydroton/expanded clay pellets"? You probably need to start the seedlings in something like a jiffy peat plug or rockwool cube before throwing them in hydroton.

You should not normally grow in soil and then put the plant in hydro, soil can cause some problems with some hydro systems, depending on how they are setup.

The only way this really works is, and it kinda only works in DWC/Bubbleponics or Flood and drain systems that do not have small irrigation channels/tubes that might get plugged up with soil, if the plant that is grown in a small soil container and has become pretty rootbound, so there is not a lot of loose soil to fall through the net pot and cause a lot of problems. The rootbound “root ball” that comes out of the small container would then be buried in the net pot with hydroton. This is more an advanced technique and not one I would recommend for just anyone most of the time. You really have to know how your hydro system works and some of the potential downfalls.
