White Widow(feminized) - SuperSoil Grow - ILGM seeds


#1

just wanted to record progress somewhere.

and say thanks to everyone @ILGM for being so helpful.


Strain; WW feminized from ilgm

Grow Space? 10x10 tent

System type? Soil in 5gallon buckets,TGA-SubCool SuperSoil

PH of runoff or solution in reservoir? 6.3pH @ runoff

What is strength of nutrient mix? TDS @ runoff = 980

Indoor or Outdoor: indoor

Light system, size? 1,000W HPS and 400W HPS

Temps; Day, Night 79f/68f

Humidity; Day, Night 36%-57%

Ventilation system; yes, 6" intake and exhaust.

AC, Humidifier, De-humidifier, no, no, 

Co2; no

started germinating 4 seeds in paper towel after soaking in water.
all 4 came to life in expected time frame.
potted in small pots with happy frog soil-no nutes.
placed in tent with 1,000wHPS and 400wMH, and let them get big enough to start topping a little bit.
after about 2/3 weeks i transplanted into 5 gallon buckets with bottom 1/3rd filled with supersoil mix, and the rest with more happy frog.
let them veg 2 more weeks watering as needed with water from tap.
at about week 5 i decided they were ready to bloom.
switched lights to 12/12
switched 400w mh to 400w hps

for the most part. this go’round has been problem free. i had overwatered at one point early on, and made a mistake pH’ing my tap water incorrectly. but the pros here got me back on track fast.

Nice lush green color is an indication plants are thriving and healthy . Since its white widow , what are your nutrient line , and feeding ratio ? I had a widow out grow my tent in a 1 gallon after becoming root bound , but I think 5 gallon is about the right size for white widow , due to them stretching excessively in flower . From what I’ve learned of white widow , it’s a better smoke more Amber than milky cloudy at harvest . But I must congratulate you on a job well done my friend , nice grow , but if you was to screen scrog your widows , you would quadruple your yield , due widow being a great strain for scrogging . Have you consider super cropping , that’s pinching the node knuckles until you hear a snap sound , which is just squeezing the joint until it crackle , which the plant will heal itself in a week or 2 , but it would considerably make them buds swell big time .

Beautiful. Nice and healthy!

thanks guys.
to answer your questions yoshi.
nutrients=subcool supersoil mix. if youre not familiar, just google…hes a legend.
feeding ratio=just fill 1/3rd of bucket with “hot” soil. the rest with “not”, done.

i am interested in screen scrog. ive done some basic research but. for me, right now its not doable. my 10x10 is going to be 12/12 all the time. ive set up another area for veg…but its not large enough for scrog setup.

ive read about super cropping, but i am reluctant to mess around with things when its going so well.
i do like the idea of buds swelling big time though lol. maybe you can provide some “supercropping for dummies” info?


#6

Try mainlining, go look at my mainlining and tell me if thats for you. You can use the search…its called

My Mainlining Journal Start to finish.

Garrigan62 , seems like you agreed with my suggestions , by taking chances , experimenting with growing methods , but all in all how have things turned out for you after doing some personal choice making on manifolding and longer dark period until Ambrose ?


#8

The light change made a big difference. The switching
to 14/10 and 72 houts of fark made a world a difference. And did tskr notes.
Npw the mainliming is taking off. I just now came in
And I swear they grew 2. 3 inches over night…lol

#9

Garrigan I’m super proud you my friend , that you venturing out into different grow methods .


#10

Thank Yoshi,

I’m seriously researching the idea and I will be doing a very serious journal on the wholel deal. The Auto’s And 15 Fen’s witch I will mainlin two of each.
Then picking a male satvia and taking one female each of the 5 good ones …get there seeds grow them next year and get a males from them and mix it up with the female’s again.
Well you get the picture.

Day-33






Below are close up with digital microscope-day 33
i took a short video with microscope. then found some good shots, and isolated them.
there is a small light on microscope that makes everything white’ish, we will see if it presents a problem determining clarity when closer to harvest.

thanks.
this time around is going way better than last time. had 2 Bianca strain in my closet and ended up with just about 3oz. of weak, dry, foul tasting bud. i harvested way too early and had some problems along the way.

now ive moved out of closet to 10’x10’x6.5’ agromax tent (which is about same price as crap-ass CashCrop box) in garage. and upgraded light to 1000w HPS, from 400wHPS. now im using both in flower-tent. the difference is night&day. closet was 10’ wide and 10’ tall, but only 2’ deep.

so now im using that for veg’ing, with a 400wMH. hoping that plants wont get too big in 4-5weeks before i can move in to tent for bloom. i have 4 more whitewidow and 2 blueberry started in closet now. they are about 2 weeks in, but so far so good.

i had to get a humidifier for veg’ closet though. was only 23%RH. got a nice 2gallon dealy at HD for $40…now its a steady 50%RH, 75F

Looking very nice there wishing you the best of luck!
Coincidentally I just received my seeds and have put 5 WW in water to start. I will be using 2X4X7 Gorilla grow with Kind 450 LED and growing in soil. Wish me luck as well for this is my first go at it :slightly_smiling:


#16

thanks.
5 plants in 2x4? thats gonna end up being pretty-tight.

good luck!


#17

No I will cull to 3 but since it’s first grow I wanted a little flex room


#18

yeah, makes sense.
i started with 6 on 1st attempt. grr stupid cashcrop. that didnt work.
then went with 1, to figure out how the hell to do this right. that didnt work lol.
tried 2 next time, went better, was actually smokeable. and saved me from buying for a short while.
now i have these 4 WW. and 6 more coming…ill tell ya…having space and keeping it simple, really goes along way in helping dial everything in.
