Trichome coated buds under LED grow lights

White Widow colas mature beautifully under the Pro-Grow X5

Grow guide for marijuana beginners.

White Widow blooming under a Pro-Grow X5

White Widow, looking (and smelling) diggity-dank at week 7 of budding!

The White Widow has begun to slow up on water intake, older & lower leaves are becoming weathered, white pistils begin to orange at a quickening pace as the weight of the buds begin to sag the branches.

The White Widow looks to be a solid finisher in the next week or two, and I am eager to get her dried, cured & on the scale. With the least effort, I already believe this is the largest of the Widows I’ve grown from this line of cuttings.

Week 7 of budding and no signs of slowing down!

Running 5 watt chip-sets & focused lenses, light penetration is a non-issue for the Pro-Grow X5

Both Bubblelicious are in a furious bloom as for every pair of pistils that goes orange, they’re pushing out a dozen more new trichome coated calyxes with new white pistils emerging. Their water/nutrient consumption has not slowed in the least. The colas are heavy & the plants lean drastically, so I staked up the main stems only, supporting the plants but letting the branches sag & open up to more light where space is permitting.

Though I normally harvest this strain in the 8-10 week range, with the extending, boosted budding of both Bubblelicious (cuttings from the same mother), I have no issues letting them run a little longer.

Thick buds down low

Even the sagging side branches provide thick buds all the way down.

Like a Gunshot blast!

With little to no canopy management other than the LST in veg, it is a jungle in there. I cannot say enough as to how I am impressed at the ability of the Pro-Grow X5 to not only produce thick colas up top, but get the light down a good way below the main tops and produce dense lower AND inner budding.

A few weeks to go, the buds keep getting fatter!

Growing thick colas has never been easier.

Like a Gunshot blast!

My initial issue with the footprint of usable light has been alleviated by the power, intensity and thus far performance! It is quite possible to get a larger grow area than I have with this lamp, via a better managed space, or by utilizing a SOG/ScrOG.

I can only imagine what a few DWC/hydro buckets under the Pro-Grow X5 would do! Hmmm…
