Growing it

Normal

Resistance

Neutral

Harvested some really beautiful buds from this plant even considering errors that I made throughout the grow. Lots of stunning orange pistils and buds remain a light green color giving it the signature white widow look :). Sorry I didn't take a wet weight measurement :s. I have only tested some small buds with a dynavap m 2019 + induction heater, and it kind of tasted flowery and almost like a lavender taste. :) This strain seems like a pretty even hybrid to me.

Nutrients

This is a good nutrient brand especially with some of their soil but a few things to pay attention to. First, don't follow the feed schedules on their website IMO. Follow the label instructions and go easy, it is very easy to nute burn if you use a heavy hand. I will be trying out some organics next grow anyway though :p

As I have harvested one, and am going to be harvesting 3 more of this plant soon I can tell you that they tend to veg for 4 weeks and then flower for around 8-9 weeks. Defoliation right before the flower stretch works wonders on this plant and increases cola count like crazyyyyy. This plant is pretty resilient to defoliation. In late flower this plant produces some really nice sativa looking fan leaves as the colas form, compared to the thicker and wider indica leaves in veg.

Grow Questions
visco week 2 started grow question 3 years ago
Is my plant's height stunted?

No your light source is very close and 360 so the plant doesnt need to stretch for light, ive never seen someone use led strips pretty cool idea but i would suggest getting a larger hooded or fanned light with a ballast hung from the celing where you can adjust the height accordingly

What's up with the yellowing leaves? They seem to yellow from the outside inwards and the tips also seem burnt too. Is it nutrient burn? Excess or Deficiency? It's mostly on the bottom but its affecting some of the bigger leaves in the middle too, Watch the video for an overview!

Hey Visco the yellow is a sign of nitrogen deficiency but there could be 2 causes on yours from what it looks like. It appears to be in the middle of its flowering stretch so it will need a lot of nitrogen to build those branches.It could just be that it needs some more nitrogen. The other is salt build up on the roots that is preventing them from absorbing nutrients. It is best to water until you get about 15% runoff from the bottom of the pot to prevent salt build up. Then make sure the top of the soil dries out quite a bit before watering again. Sorry I cant pinpoint 100% on this but hope this info gives you a little more insight to determine what it is. If you have not been watering until you get a good amount of runoff thrn this is going to be your issue. I would water with plain ph adjusted water for the next couple waterings. With 95 degree heat I assume the pot dries out pretty fast leaving a lot of salt behind. And the leaves look a dark shade of green so I think the nitrogen is there. Hope this gets you headed in the right direction. Good luck.
visco week 9 started grow question 3 years ago
So as I approach late flower, I am confused about flushing... This plant is supposed to flower 8 weeks. Do I flush at the end of week 6, or at the end of week 8? The harvest would then be pushed until week 10 as I am planning to flush for 2 weeks.

First grow very nice. The breeders use week estimates so always go by the trichomes color. Try not to jump the gun and flush too early it does happen. Just a guess you probably have at least 2-3 weeks to go. The buds continue to bulk up the most in the last few weeks. Typically When about 50% of the white pistils have turned orange I start checking the trichomes. If you have mostly all clear trichomes you can still give her a few more feedings. Once you see more 1/2 cloudy trichomes than clear trichomes you can start to flush her. Typically 10 to 14 days is more than enough. You will get better with this after a few grows. She's ready when she's ready. If you have a TDS or PPM meter run 7 to 9 gallons of water through your pot or until your runoff from the pot is within a 100-150 ppm of the flush water. You want to let her dry out before you water her again and keep up this wet/dry cycle until your runoff ppm are close to the flush water ppm. Typically within 7 days you will see it starting to steal nutrients from the lower leaves. If possible try to lower your temperature to 80 F or less to preserve the terpenes and lower your humidity to under 45% then 40% or lower. At 70% it could cause potential mildew issues. Most growers harvest with about 5% to 30% amber trichomes depending on what type of high you like. The main cola will typically be ready a little sooner than the lower buds. You can harvest in stages as they ripen. Think fall your trying to mimic the stress plants and trees go through to survive their environmental changes. You can also cut back on your lights the last couple of weeks to 18-20 hrs which will allow a nice nighttime temperature drop to pull some nice colors out of her. :+1:
