White Widow is a hearty ‘survivor strain,’ which makes it a suitable option for any individual who has at least some experience with growing cannabis — even if this experience is sparse. White Widow weed is fairly resistant to molds, bugs, and even colder climates, which is why – when cultivated properly – it can grow successfully without too much fuss (as long as the basic conditions and needs of the strain are being met). White Widow was originally bred to be grown indoors, but those who are blessed with sunny climates may successfully cultivate the frosty strain outdoors.
White Widow’s flowering period is around 8 weeks, but it can usually be grown for two more weeks in order to obtain the snow-capped frosty look that is so often attached to this strain. If you are choosing to extend the flowering process to 10 weeks instead of 8, however, it is vital to induce a bit of stress into your girls by shortening your light cycle from 12 hours daily down to 8 hours. This will keep anything drastic from happening to your plants during the two extra weeks and will generate plenty of accumulated frost so you can get the appearance you desire from your crops. You can look forward to your White Widow growing to about two feet tall indoors, with much greater (yet varying) heights for outside production. Also, it’s worth pointing out that when grown indoors, it is possible to successfully use the Sea of Green method alongside your usual cultivation process. And be advised that White Widow typically flourishes in a hydroponics system, soil growth, or any other indoor technique.
A typical indoor yield is around 20-24 ounces per meter squared, which is pretty average in relation to other marijuana strains. If you are brave enough to take on the challenge of cultivating your White Widow outdoors, make sure to attempt to provide your strain with as warm of weather as possible, typically in the 65-80 degree Fahrenheit range, with more than enough direct sunlight. Although White Widow weed is known for being somewhat resistant to colder climates, you don’t want to keep the plants in the cold too long, as you may risk your hard work going to waste. An outdoor-grown White Widow weed plant typically yields around 21-25 ounces of flower per plant, with the crop itself growing up to 6 feet in height – occasionally even taller. Harvest is usually in the end of October for White Widow, unless you are choosing the extended method of flowering. Overall, growing White Widow marijuana is fairly easy, and even suitable for complete beginners if they are experimenting with the cultivation of just one plant in a closet or backyard. As long as you treat your White Widow well and give it the proper care, you should have some decent-tasting cannabis in the end.
