This is a fantastic strain. It's the plant you dream of growing during flowering. Just gorgeous. This thing belongs on the cover of a magazine. Harvest was decent. Was a little harsh at first, but after a month of curing it is a delicacy. The flavours are sublime. Hints of berries, lemon, earthy sweet undertones.

Nutrients

I haven't used anything else, but I've never had any real problems with my plants. They are the specimen of health from start to finish. I did find during my last grow that flushing was very important using these nutrients. Did a very thorough flush this time and you could tell on the plants.

This plant was a dream to grow. My favorite plant to date. Thank you Dinafem! Nice and bushy during veg, turned into a stunning plant during late flowering. The colours were beautiful. Dark purples, blues, greens, yellows. Had a great fall this spring in my grow tent. After a month of curing the flavours started to settle. The Blue Widow will not disappoint. Crafted edibles prior to the cure, and they are the bomb. Working great for my wife's MS pain. It's become a regular part of her medicine cycle. Helps keep the cramping at bay so she can function like a human. Will definitely be growing this again. The edibles tend to knock me on my ass, but I'm a light-weight so don't take much stock in that .

Grow Questions

Trim "armpit" branches?
Growing mainline and wondering about trimming the new branches so bud growth is focused on main stalks. My last round I had one plant that I didn't trim at all-not a fun harvest. Other plants I kinda trimmed and went well. Should I get rid of them all? See last photo week 12.

Main lining means that you have all the buds at the same height to create an even cannopy so no side branches are allowed with that method. If you were applying a simple LsT I would have say something else.

Looking for info on residuals in plants from fertilizers. Is there a difference between organic vs chemical based fertilizers. We make and consume a lot of edibles for medicinal purposes. Worried about long term effects. Not a lot of info about that on the web. Thanks!

Also: a chemical can be anything. Water for example is dihydrogen monoxide. It sounds awful but it’s just water with it’s chemical name. :female-farmer::skin-tone-3:

This my understanding of it...

Both are good for plants... both can do the same job. Usually organic nutrients require a bit more added to the water than synthetically derived fertilizers because synthetically derived fertilizers are typically salt based and are more concentrated. Both are made from things you personally wouldn’t go out and consume on your own and are things you wouldn’t really want to smoke either.

Think of it this way, producers/farmers everywhere use chemicals in their crops each and every day. Most of the crops we consume do not go through any kind of “flushing” period like we do marijuana and most are grown with synthetic fertilizers. There is a small niche market for organic products but the vast majority are not organically grown.

In the marijuana industry, it seems most home growers grow with organic nutrients only wether from their own opinions or simple superstition.

Plants convert the nutrients they uptake in the soil into the energy and sugars they need to survive. It does not remain the same. The chemicals you put in the soil/water should be different altogether in the plant since the plant breaks these chemicals down in their metabolic processes. This is why we can feed tomatoes mature water and the tomatoes still do not taste or smell like manure.

Just like in vegetable farming, any kind of sprays should not be applied to the end crop. In this case our end crop is the bud and to prevent chemical buildup on the outside you should mitigate how much ends up on the outside of the plant once flowering begins.

Feeding directly into soil-the plant should have little if any of the chemical fertilizers you use. If using organic, again, it will have little if any.

Foliar feeding-as long as it is done before flower you should have very little residual amount left.

I am currently experimenting with plants to see if flushing has any real effect on the end bud. I’m not convinced that flushing is truly needed as no other crops are “flushed” before consumed/smoked.

You can always do a water cure with the buds you'll use for edibles!
