This kinda took me by surprise. This plant is a lil over 5 weeks from the light switch and 4 weeks from the first white pistils that emerged. These seeds are from a ILGM white widow plant I grew last year that threw some seeds at the end when I ran her about 12 weeks in flower before harvest (I was going for couchlock).
Of course all the guides say about 8-10 weeks for this strain as a general guide. They look very close to done if not already; I am afraid to run them much longer. I am going for a more cerebral high this time.
@AxisCat you’re right in that window brother. Much longer and you’re getting into couch-lock. Beautiful buds! I see an animal hair on the bud in the first pic. Definitely recommend a bud wash before dry and cure. Great job!
Thanks everyone for the input… I just didn’t expect them to finish after 5 weeks… I normally don’t even look at trichomes until the 6 week but those orange pistils where telling me I better go ahead and check.
Just harvested 5 WW plants a few months back at 7-1/2 weeks from 12/12 for 2, 8 weeks for 1, the last 2, I took the top buds @ 8 and let the sm btm buds go another week and was glad I did. I had a little more amber when taken. It all smokes great, enjoy.
This plant is from a white widow I grew last year from seed. I flowered the mom for about 12 weeks until the trichomes where about 50% amber. I was trying to create a sleep aid for the wife. Near the end around week 10 she threw out a handful of seeds. I don’t know if you consider it a true hermi or just a last ditch effort to carry on the next generation.
Strange thing is I didn’t really get the couch lock and sleep effect I was looking for. But she was very potent. She also turned dark purple for some reason. Here is a picture of her, she is the one in back:
