White Widow are feminized marijuana seeds produced by the Silent Seeds bank from the variety that Dinafem helped to popularize as a 100% female version, since it is the same genetics. It is a true Dutch classic from the 90s, when it became known throughout the world thanks to its spectacular amount of trichomes that cover practically its entire structure. These seeds are suitable for any level of grower, novices will get a great harvest and the most advanced ones will be satiated by its extraordinary quality.
What is the genetics of these feminized seeds?
It is an S1 variety, because the seeds are produced from the self-pollination of a cutting of this strain selected at the end of the 90's in the Basque Country. The original genetics are supposed to have come about after crossing a Brazilian with a plant from South India, and the result is an F1 hybrid that contains approximately 65% indica and 35% sativa, although it appears to be more indica-like usually.
What does White Widow by Silent Seeds look like?
At first glance it has the appearance of a pure indica as I was saying, a very compact structure crowned by a large central point that is surrounded by several satellite branches that also end at a good height, so they receive a lot of light. Its trunk and the many branches it produces are tremendously solid, so much so that it is not necessary to tie branches or stake them, since they are also very compact due to the small distance between nodes they present. The leaves are not very large, but they have leaflets of considerable width, a shade darker than other plants. The buds are spectacular, very thick and compact, with an exaggerated amount of resin.
How are these seeds grown indoors and outdoors?
From our point of view, they behave better when they are left to grow naturally, without pruning or molding, so that their real morphology ends. It is a variety that does not need a lot of fertilizers, on the contrary, it seems that it behaves better with moderate fertilizers. In indoor cultivation, between 9 and 16 plants/m2 can be placed in 7 or 11 liter pots, and it is enough to give them about 25 days of vegetative growth so that they fill the entire illuminated space with large resinous buds. Once the plants begin to flower, it is important to keep the ambient humidity as low as possible, otherwise there is a risk of fungal attack.
In outdoor cultivation they do not need much care as long as they do not lack a quality substrate, that is why we put special emphasis on remembering that if you have to save on something, it is better not to be on the ground. If you can plant in pots of 30 to 50 liters it would be fine, and if you can put them directly in the ground even better, it will thank you with an extra yield. Just like indoors, from the moment the buds begin to form it is very important that they do not get wet because they are very dense and transpire little, and if they pick up moisture it is easy for botrytis, powdery mildew or mildew to appear.
When are White Widows harvested?
In indoor cultivation it normally needs around 8 weeks of flowering to complete its life cycle, but the harvest can be advanced or delayed a few days depending on the personal tastes of each grower in terms of the effect, because if they are cut between 50 days and 55 flowering will be more psychoactive, and if left to mature for 60 days or more it becomes more physical and relaxing. In outdoor cultivation it is cut at the beginning or mid-October in the northern hemisphere, and in the southern hemisphere it is necessary to wait until early or mid-April.
How much do these seeds from Silent Seeds produce?
It produces a lot in all senses, if we talk about buds in indoor cultivation, a normal harvest would be about 550 grams/m2, and in outdoor cultivation each plant can yield up to 900 grams or more, depending on the general conditions of the crop. Trichome production is also very high, to give you an idea, for many years White Widow was the most resinous commercial strain on the planet.
How is the aroma and taste of White Widow?
It is very special for its originality, it is not as intense as other genetics but it has unique nuances. The aroma is medium intensity but very fresh, with floral and earthy tones reminiscent of a field after it rains. The taste is not very similar to the aroma, bittersweet with fruity sub-notes that are better perceived after exhaling the thick and dense smoke produced by combustion.
What kind of effect does this weed cause?
Although its THC levels remain between 14% and 20%, it should be noted that it is a fairly powerful and direct effect, one of those that hit hard with just a few puffs. At first you feel a certain euphoria and a lot of brain activity, at the same time that the body relaxes more and more, since as time goes by it increases. Medical marijuana users can benefit from its calming properties, a relief for nerves and anxiety.
