First grow, White widow Autos

5 White widow autos. Planned on doing 4 but all 5 that I germinated took so… Anyways starting this on day 22 from first sprout. One of the leaves on the back middle plant is a little messed up hit it with some soil. Had some Minor heat problems early before i got a proper exhaust installed. (temp kept creeping up to 85 degrees). First grow.

You can’t really tell in the pic but the front mid plant is a little bit stunted compared to the others. Started them in solo cups and it was the last one to be transplanted tipped the tray over and it fell and blew out of the cup and half the root ball exploded surprised it has recovered.


It’s surprising what these plants can overcome. They’re lookin good brother

My lights are still 30 inches above the plants. How close should I move them ? Two leds both 220 real watt draws.

What are the light equivalent ratings wattage of each light?

Oh each bulb is 3 and they claim 600 which is weird since it only rly draws a little over 2 but they are generics both lights are the same 200 3 watt eq led bulbs each

I grow 6 generation’s of White widow, They are very forgiving and easy to grow,
They are a beginners dream.

I think we have just what you need!

ok then a 600 watt light … And that was my guess.

My 300 watt led light draws about 140 watts. Remember that cfl and led lights quite commonly use equivalent ratings on them so you know about how bright they are compared to incandescent lights.

Here is a pretty easy to follow topic on lighting if you’d like to see how much goes into this :smiley:

And a big thanks to Al for providing this info! @Niala

Here’s a chart for LED lights, it’s for equivalent watt, so if your LED light is 300W follow the chart for it, it’s not made for actual or real draw and it’s an approximation, that clarify, here it is :

120 W to 180W ~1.5 feet
180W to 300W ~2.0 feet
300W to 600W ~2.5 feet
600W to 1200W ~3.0 feet
1200W to 2000W ~3.5 feet

Hoping that’s helping as many as fellow growers possible

One caveat. These are recommended settings and not exact works perfect numbers for everyone all the time. I would call these proper distances in Veg. One you go into flower you may find your girls getting a bit closer to your lights. Just keep an eye on them for bleaching and you should be fine. (or SCROG / LST them in advance to keep them at the consistent height)

here are the girls today. Can anyone tell me what that is in the second pic the leaf is curling weird and their are 2 rust colored spots. Sorry about the pics they are taken with my phone. I was misting the plant this morning and noticed it. some more info I lowered the lights yesterday is that some kind of led light burn? I moved them back up to where they were after i saw that.

I had lowered them before I saw the good post about lights…lol anyways im not sure how to tag the ppl who know what that is or id have done it. Don’t want to just assume it was caused by moving the lights when i rly have no clue.

Here’s one of the girls at 25 days from sprout now.

since this is my first grow I might just let them grow naturally I have looked into lst but the plants are so compact I can’t quite figure out what I’m supposed to bend where so might just let them be lol. I’ll learn to do that for next grow I think.


all you do is through the @ in front of the user you want to tag @MysterA

Saw what you posted this morning in the garden and you should take a pic or two and post it here so we can take a look along with you!

Here is my grow journal!

Looking at that leaf, it looks like food water got splashed on it. Especially when they are thirsty, leaves suck up any water that touches them and if there are nutes in it they will get burnt by it. Other things that can cause that are touching the soil when drooping causing it to get watered on.

Ok @MysterA I’m here thanks to @bob31 he link your thread to his
Now to answer your question some plant are just greedier then others water nutes etc they are all a little different and should be treated as individuals IMO
There’s a lot going on in the forum so it takes a little time for us to find stuff sometimes tagging is best way to get people to see what’s up
The pics look good to me what is your concern?
I see one tip with a little but think @Stomper might be on track
