Just finished up my very first grow attempt! Prohibition in my state finally fell so I decided to finally do what I’ve always wanted to do… grow some sweet, stinky weed. I messed up germination on a bunch of seeds until I got this White Widow to take, alongside some Sour Diesel and three Critical plants.
I’m growing using a live soil with FoxFarm Ocean Forest as a base, and wateted only with RO filtered water. I’ve got (3) 5’x5′ AC Infinity tents, all with Spider Farmer SF4000 lights, 6 inch AC Infinity fans with carbon filters, monkey fans and each tent also has a humidifier and dehumidifier running off an InkBird humidity controller. Suffice to say the gear in my garage can handle much more than I can at the moment!
I didn’t do much training aside from topping the plants once, and my next grow will utilize trellis netting and staking of bottom limbs to fill out a more uniform canopy. Got nearly a pound from my first go, and several lifelong smokers have given my plants great reviews. One even said the my White Widow is some of the best he has ever smoked. And that is all without a proper curing phase.
Thanks for the podcast and all you guys do! I’ve learned a lot from you guys. I’ve also had a lot of help from a good friend who grew up on farms and is an incredible backyard gardener.
What a time to be alive!
