Final Grow/Smoke Report

Okay, so now that I have looked over my scribbling and dried all of the bud, I will offer up some observations on this strain. As usual I would like to say that a handful of plants hardly constitutes a fair and scientific investigation and more thorough growing is needed t

Not the easiest to grow by a long way. Huge stretch in flower, almost doubled in size in the first 2 weeks, and quite easy to burn with nutes. Probably not the best strain for a beginner. I noticed that the flowering time you often get told for WW is 70 days; this was much too long for mine. They on ...continued

From a 10 feminized seeds pack (100 euros= approx. 100$), I got 7 ladies and the other 3 beans went to trash (this germination problem may come from too much moisture: it seems the 3 weakest seeds have rotten).

Phenotype from this pack was quite uniform: a sativa-indica

A very nice plant to grow for those who don't mind waiting. White Widow packs a real punch when it comes to the size and effect of this great medication. Total flowering time indoor was 75 days which was a lot more than I would have liked to have waited. End result from 2 female plants was 4 oz dry ...continued

The Dutch passion feminised white widow was a massive smoke and an easy plant to grow – I do recommend it. Of 4 seeds, 3 sprouted and all were females. The plants were very bushy which caused problems in the confines of my waist-high grow room.

Because of the height restrictions the plants were grown under 375W of compact fluoro’s (Envirolites & envirolite knock off’s). Veg time was 5 weeks and the plants increased in size by 2-3 times during flower. Plants were grown in coco fibre (‘coir’) which contained 40% perlite. The bottom 2 inches of the pots was clay pebbles, and the plants sat in a tray which had a couple of inches of liquid feed in it. When the plants had sucked up the all the liquid the tray dried up and I re-filled it with a couple more litres. Not a high-tec growth method – but suits me for a few reasons that I won’t bore you with here.

Feeding was with canna nutrients and I also used hydrogen peroxide to ensure the roots were fully oxygenated. No noticeable issues with nute concentrations were seen – but then again I stuck to a ‘gradual increase’ method before feeding at full strength. Every so often I would let the plants feed on plain water to minimise chances of salt build up. The plants were also all fed plain water for the last week of their life and I think it made for a smoother toke.
The widow plants need a lot of pruning, in my opinion, when grown in small areas. Specifically the issue is the leaves which form a bushy canopy making light penetration tricky – especially in my confined grow room. So I do recommend taking leaves off the widows, sorry if other gardeners disagree with me on that but I’m just telling it as it was for me.

Of the three plants one yielded 1.75 ounces, one was 1.5 ounces and one was just ¼ ounce. I think the low yielder just didn’t get enough light. The 2 heavy yielders were successfully re-vegged. On re-vegging they didn’t smell quite as pungent, and they seemed to take longer to reach maturity on the second harvest.

The plants were very smelly and would need odour control in a bigger grow. Because I grew in such a small space I can’t really comment on the plants growth characteristics too well, but fortunately I can talk about 2 different phenotypes that I saw based on the colour of the calyx’s. One plant grew the traditional green calyx’s and one grew brown/red calyx’s. Both are described in detail below.

I cropped at just over 9 weeks and gave the plants 48 hours of darkness before harvest – some say this helps potency.

This plant was a supreme smoke, a creeper stone that peaks about an after you smoke/vapourise it. The effect continues to give a typical total 3 hour stone – which is very good for me….and I have smoked daily for 20 years (with a gap of 8 years in the middle when I was straight and at college). Compared to Isis (a haze-related sativa from Dutch Passion), this stone was stabler and steady. There was less of a ‘haze’ / confusion at the start of the stone than with Isis. But this was a massive stone in it’s own right, and really you can’t function too well on it. You wander around the house wondering what the hell you were supposed to be doing but struggle to remember. Jees, better just lay on the sofa and try to watch cable TV, but which damn channel man?

The smoke gave you a total loss of sensation of time. I bet one day they will discover a medical use for that….

I also got a strong sense of peace, a removal from the anxieties of my usual day. Tingling in the limbs. Smoking this on a weekend spring morning with a good buddy was a great way I started one day in 2004, a euphoric and giggly high. My mate who grows under 1000w HPS reckons the pheno would give him 3-4 ounces a plant – perhaps he will get lucky enough to grow it one day.

This plant was also biggest yielder of my garden. Yielding 2-3 times the yield of blueberrys grown in the same grow and under the same conditions. One and three quarter ounces of prime bud came from a single 3 foot high plant that was grown in overcrowded conditions under 375 watts of envirolites – but man, what a beauty.

The stone last longer with joints than with vaporizing – but I think that means that higher vaporizing temperatures are needed. Branches grew all over this plant and the buds were growing all over the branches – it was really unusual to see such prolific growth. I knew when I decided to re-veg this that I had a special plant The grey haired smokers that don’t like the trippy edge to their smokes may want to moderate the volumes they smoke as a little goes a long way.

Anyone foolish to even consider driving after toking this stuff would be a danger to themselves and anyone else on the road so never drive under the influence of this stuff. My mate, a 20 year toker veteran like myself, rates this as one of his favorite smokes, better even than Blueberry – a strain that many rate as one of the best ever.

Make no mistake, this is a top-drawer smoke of the highest order. Easy to grow with no noticeable issues at all other than a strong odor that requires active management in the flowering stages. I say it one more time – this is truly magnificent, one of my best smokes ever. Just don’t hope to get much done under the influence.

Any young people or students out there?, then lay off this stuff until your studies are over, I had to lay off regular weed to get thru college, there is no way I could have made it thru college on this stuff. I don’t mean to offend any young people out there but I’m just an old git telling you my views and experience – no offence intended at all. Get your studies done then get stoned, not the other way around.

Honest to God this is powerful, don’t use this stuff if you have an active life. Ideal for pain management or those lucky enough to be cruising thru life. In my experience this is a true killer strain that you will enjoy unless you have had poor grow conditions/lighting.

I give it a 9/10. A very rare score for me, awarded only for truly devastating smokes.

The herb leaves you with a tired out feeling after toking it, so either plan a siesta 4 hours after a smoke, or smoke in the evening for best effect.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I grew these plants in a small growroom so this can’t be considered a complete study since so much was sub-optimized. They were grown under 3x 125 watts of compact fluorescent rather than HPS, and the grow height was restricted to about 3 feet (1 metre). I can only define the phenotypes as red-calyx’d and green calyx’d. The yield was great from both phenotypes. I was really pleased with this strain and would say this was money well spent on great genetics that gave good yield and strength, and took all I could throw at them in terms of poor grow conditions. Congrats to Dutch Passion. In summary: Highly recommended to all. This is a killer strain and all growers ought to try this one. One more time, don’t smoke too much in one go or you will be wiped by this stuff.

Ok now you know it was an outdoor grow, so here we are.
Started 5 seeds on mid April, directly in 25L containers. They were feed with bio grow during veg and bio-bloom during flower. They stretch a lot during the beginning of the veg, so they didn't look very bushy. 3 Turned out to

I was eager to try the legend of the White Widow. This was only my fifth indoor grow, so I planted 3 along with an unknown sativa bagseed. All three popped quickly and really took off. Ended up with two females. During veg, the WW handled all the nutes I threw at it (Dyna Gro), but during flower, sh ...continued

I found White Widow to a decent plant not much of a smell or taste. Looks real good big dense nugs covered in crystals. Plants tend to add about 2/3 of there size during flowering. I have grown around 6 crops of the widow and have seen it grown in many other gardens. Have used Pure Blend, Roots Orga ...continued
