A Satisfied Customer
I'm very pleased & relieved with the highly professional & friendly service & product from ILGM. However, I'm deeply distressed that despite all of the seeds I received did indeed germinate, I've done something/s terribly wrong & they have died after germinating? Some seeds may have been too close to the surface & germinated upside down & died. Others appear to have been too deep & germinated sideways tather than down. Others germinated, broke the surface right side up & just died. I have a heat mat under the seed cups & a bowl over all of that to create a warm enviroment as it is winter in Australia at this time. It didn't seem to be too hot to damage the seedling. Maybe the soil may have been too damp. Although I've grown 8-10 plants in the last couple of years & that's how moist I've had the soil. I just don't know? I followed Robert's (ILGM's Robert that is) advice in germinating, ie; soften the seed shell in water over night & pop the seed straight into the soil * sure enough they germinated. But I'm doing something terribly wrong. I've blown the ten seeds I bought & I'll have to try again & re-order in a few weeks. I need help. The plants that I've grown in the past, I would place them in water overnight, then I'd use the paper towel method after taking them out of the water, once they'd sprouted, I'd pop them into a small cup & after a week I'd transplant them into the final pot, It always worked. But not this time I'm doing somethiing very wrong. So again I'd like to thankyou all for your great service & seeds, & apologize for my depressing bastardization of them. I'll re-order in a few weeks, all the best Craig
I'm sorry to hear that. Please get in contact with our customer service so we can find out what the problem is!
Seeds arrived promptly as usual
I am still learning. The seeds mostly all germinate, and if they become seedlings, they grow well. But so many of them don't want to go to the seedling state in my soil, so I am trying a commercial seedling soil to try to get better results. I already bought a nice moisture meter to try to get some watering routine that works. I am a complete novice at outdoor gardening, but am motivated to learn how to do it in my soil because I don't want the hassle and expense of indoor growing but I do want the wonderful experience of cannabis on demand!
First Time Grower
The payment went well, shipping and delivery was fast. They kept me informed through out the process. I used the Grow Bible to learn how to do every thing I've done so far. I soaked the seeds in water and in two and a half days the roots appeared on four of the seeds. I planted all five and had four plants in two days. I live in PA and will be growing outside. I'm definitely concerned about the weather, but don't have a good indoor place for a grow room. Can't wait to see how it goes.
Fast as ****
Got them quick and discreet def doing business again
So far, so good ... thanx
If you do some coffee shop hopping in Amsterdam, the chances are good that you’ll see White Widow in most of them. White Widow is an Indica hybrid, stemming back to the 1990s. It gives users a cerebral high and a smooth feeling of relaxation. In short, it’s highly enjoyable and very popular.
People love White Widow because it simply gets them high. It has higher than average THC levels but doesn’t lead to the couch-lock feeling that is less beloved. Side effects are mild, although also quite rare altogether.
White Widow Autoflower is also a favorite strain to grow, especially for people looking for a smaller plant. This can be quite advantageous, especially for people who are seeking to keep their growing operation under the radar. Better yet, it’s an excellent plant for beginners to grow, as it is not too finicky about climate or other environmental elements.
This review is based on the feminized strain, attributes can slightly differ for autoflowers.
Growing White Widow
It’s important to remember that this is an autoflower strain, rather than a “normal” strain of marijuana. The term “autoflowering” refers to the fact that this particular strain of marijuana is not photosensitive. While other, “normal” strains of marijuana start transitioning into their flowering phase with changes in the amount of sunlight and the amount of uninterrupted darkness, autoflowering strains instead follow their own “internal clock.” They simply reach the flowering phase at a certain point, regardless of what the sun is doing.
This can be highly beneficial for many growers, especially outdoor growers that are interested in harvesting twice during a single grow season. Because they don’t need to wait for the hours of sunlight to drop below a certain threshold, they can harvest their first set of plants in the middle of summer, when the sun is at its peak.
The White Widow Autoflowering strain of marijuana can be grown in just about any setup, but an indoor one with more control is often recommended. It does well against diseases, and it thrives in heat and sunny conditions, but it can also do quite well in cooler climates.
White Widow consistently makes the list of best strains for beginners to try growing. This is due in large part to how easy these plants are to grow, but the fact that the high is an overall popular feeling also does not hurt. The plant can withstand a variety of different environments, as well as environmental changes. The hardiness of the plant also helps lead to consistently high yields, making it ideal for beginners (as well as for just about anyone).
If you are growing White Widow Autoflower, you can expect approximately 4 ounces of bud per 3 square feet of plants. The flowering time lasts between 8 and 9 weeks. You can expect the plants to reach heights of between 20 and 24 inches.
Origin of White Widow Autoflower Strain
The White Widow autoflower strain comes from the work of Green House Seeds, which is largely responsible for breeding it in the 1990s. It is a hybrid, although it is technically an Indica dominant plant (roughly 40% Sativa, 60% Indica). Its two main parents are the South Indian Indica (which has tons of resin) as well as the Brazilian Sativa landrace. The result is a plant with buds that are covered in crystallized resin and quite potent.
The plant itself was bred in the Netherlands first. It has also become the parent plant of many other favorite strains, including White Russian, Blue Widow, and White Rhino. Nonetheless, the popularity of the original White Widow prevails as a classic.
Effects of White Widow Autoflower Strain
By and large, the effects of the White Widow include relaxation and happiness. Couch-lock does not occur when you smoke this strain, which is one big reason why it is so desirable. Instead, smokers feel the gentle bliss and uplifting energy of a social high. It is mostly a head-based, cerebral high, and has light bodily effects too. It is potent and enjoyable for just about anybody.
The positive effects of the White Widow Autoflower include:
The negative effects, though extremely rare, could include:
- Dry mouth
- Dry eyes
Medical Uses for White Widow Autoflower Strain
White Widow is highly desirable for many medical marijuana patients, especially for the ease of the symptoms of mood disorders. It has high levels of THC (19%) and medium levels of CBD, and it does wonders for many medical marijuana patients.
Some patients claim that White Widow is by far the best option for them to smoke, namely because they are able to stay awake and somewhat alert while fighting their symptoms with it. For that reason, it is highly recommended for everyday use to combat stresses that are experienced on a daily basis.
In other words, after a long hard day at work, coming home and de-stressing with some White Widow is an excellent idea. Another reason it works so well for daily use is that it can combat insomnia, giving users a lovely and restful night’s sleep.
Medical Uses for Physical Ailments
White Widow has been known to successfully ease the following symptoms:
- Aches and pains
- Loss of appetite
Medical Uses for Psychological Ailments
White Widow has also been known to successfully ease the symptoms of the following ailments:
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Taste and Aroma of White Widow Autoflower Strain
White Widow is a strain that many of your senses will enjoy. It even looks delectable, given the white crystals that naturally cover the buds (giving this strain its name). This is reflected in its smell, which is quite pungent, earthy, and spicy.
It also has an earthy taste to it, but it has a sugary and sweet smoke and after-taste (reflecting the sugar-like crystals on the bud). Pine and wood are also able to be tasted, making for a very pleasant combination.
