Growing White Widow Seeds

White Widow is an indica dominant hybrid that can be grown both indoors and outdoors. These plants grow and adapt easily, but they generally prefer warm conditions. White Widow looks much more like an indica during the vegetative stage: plants are bushy and wide, with lots of branching. Indoor flowering takes 60-70 days and outdoor plants will finish by the end of September. The average indoor harvest is 450-500g/plant. Outdoor plants can grow 5-10 feet tall and yield 650- 700g/plant. This plant grows extremely fast after germination and can grow over an inch per day (for the first 3 days following germination). Feminized seeds are a great option for beginners seeking to try their hand at growing White Widow indoor.

White Widow is one of the most awarded cannabis strains in history and is the cornerstone to all the popular “white” strains available now.
