I am just finishing a grow of white widow autos and would appreciate your suggestions as to what to grow next. This is my second grow and wanting your help to avoid a few issues I encountered in my first grow. Namely, of the 4 WWAs, 2 of them grew to 54 – 56”. So, with the height of the pot, they are within 8” of the light. They really stretched and I assume it is due their Sativa heritage. The third plant is a very manageable 42” but still much larger than anticipated. These three are on day 81 and based on their trichomes, they have a way to go before they come down. The 4th one also grew to 42” and was harvested on day 71 (trichomes were cloudy with some amber). Because two of them grew so tall, the upper sugar leaves browned out (I assume calcium issue). I gave them cal-mag but it was too late. And to help reduce the heat from the light, I have left the tent door wide open even though I have two fans going.
Set up – 7’ 3X3 tent, Kind 3 XL600 LED, amended Fox Farm Ocean soil in Smart Pots, Fox Farm nutrient trio and cal-mag.
I have the following ILGM autos to choose from
White Widow, Amnesia Haze, Blueberry, Jack Herer and Northern Lights.
Based on your experience with these strains, which one would you recommend?
In addition, your input will be appreciated in deciding…
Number of plants?
What pot size? 3 or 5 gallons
Yes or no as to: LST, SCrog, Topping and Lollipopping
Looking forward to your replies and a successful grow based on your recommendations.
