This was my first grow in many years. Please forgive the conceit of saying that I have had pretty good success in the past. This time not so much.
White Widow Fem. Wet paper towels, sprouting in about 24 hrs. Then into organic soil, eventually into 3 gallon pots. 1000w full spectrum LED, starting 18 on 6 off. After 8 weeks they were +/- 26" and very bushy. When they got fed during the veg stage it was with a high nitrogen fertilizer. After flowering began I switched to a low Nitrogen, high P & K. Typical week was to water twice or so, once with fertilizer, once with plain water. About 5 days after switching to 12/12 the first sign of flowers. The temperature was 80F or below and the RH was 45/50% during flowering. The smell was (and still is) astonishing. Nine full weeks in flower, and under magnification the tricomes were mostly cloudy. A very few showed amber and/or still clear, but very few.
Now here is my problem:
After harvest and trim my green weight was just shy of 5.5oz. And most of the flowers are hardly what could be described as dense. I was not expecting anything like what the descriptions say, but I was expecting …something more. After all the time and effort (and, frankly, money) am I wrong to expect something more?
OK guys. Help me out. Where did I go wrong? And If I left out any information that might shed light on my situation please tell me. I don’t intend to give this up, but I need some help.
