Growing the White Widow Cannabis Strain
The best part about the White Widow strain is that it’s resistant to harsh climate, bugs, and molds. Therefore, if you follow the proper cultivation instructions, you are assured of getting high yields within a short period.
Originally, the strain was bred for indoor cultivation. But with time, individuals from sunny regions started outdoor cultivation, which showed excellent results. If you choose outdoor cultivation, be cautious about the temperatures and humidity levels. The temperatures should range between 65 and 89 degrees and ensure enough direct sunlight.
White Widow cannabis strain takes about eight weeks flowering period. It will, however, help if you wait for two more weeks before harvest to allow the strain to get the snow-capped frosty look.
If you choose to wait until the 10th week, it is critical that you train the plants by reducing their light cycle from 12 hours to 8 hours per day. This idea is to slow down the growth and ensure maximum frost accumulation to give your desired look.
The height of this strain is about 2ft when cultivated indoors and 6ft when grown outdoors.
Unlike most strains that thrive in soil, White Widow Cannabis strain performs best when cultivated hydroponically, where you have total control over the nutrients. You may still choose to grow the strain in soil, but ensure to feed the plants regularly.
With proper cultivation, you can harvest up to 20-24 ounces per meter squared. On the other hand, you can get up to 25 ounces per plant with outdoor cultivation.
