Medical Marijuana plants under LED grow lights

A mass of sagging colas in week 8 of bloom under the Pro-Grow X5

As week 8 comes to a close I’m starting to see signs of the Bubblelicious beginning to reach their peak. Last week it seemed they would continue to bloom for a while more, I am always amazed as to how fast these plants grow, change & mature.

White Widow Cola, Week 8 Bloom

Dense buds weigh down the branches of the White Widow

This is the last run of this White Widow cutting. She is a dense & dank plant, very forgiving (easy to grow), but just not the phenotype I want. While popular among a few of the patients I assist, I know I can do better.

I’d mentioned somewhere that this is the best smelling batch of Bubblelicious to come from this batch of clones, well the Widow is one of the most putrid, oily/fuel, smelling of the bunch of Widows as well. Since my soil and nutrients are basically the same as prior grows, I’d have to attribute some of this to the Pro-Grow X5’s spectral output.

These thick buds should max-out in the coming days prior to harvest.

For the size of the lamp, the illuminated footprint from the PG-X5 seems somewhat constricted, however focus & intensity are where things seem to shine. Up top the bud growth is fast, furious, big and bold.

Good light penetration = Happy buds down low too!

The depth as to how far below the canopy the light will still be effective is very crucial and as long as it’s not over shaded, even the lower branches get some X5 light loving too!

I hope to have a better idea as to when we’ll harvest, but at soonest, I figure end of August, or early September… Check back!
