What strain is it?
2 White Widow, 2 Jack Herer, 2 Power Plant from ILGM
Is it Indica, Sativa or Hybrid? What percentages?

White Widow
The White Widow strain of marijuana is one of the most popular and best-known strains out there – especially in the coffee shops of Amsterdam. It is so beloved for a reason, namely because of how it makes people feel. At 60%, you get the best of both worlds with this slightly Indica dominant hybrid.
White Widow is found on any menu of any of the best coffee shops. It has average THC levels (19% -- although occasionally higher), and it has medium to high CBD levels. Even better, White Widow is an easy strain to grow, even for beginners.
This plant does a particularly good job of treating anxiety, depression, stress, ADD/ADHD, insomnia, pain, and insomnia. But the real draw of White Widow is how it makes people feel. Imagine getting a pleasant burst of euphoria, happiness, and relaxation just minutes after you inhale. That's the effect of White Widow.

Power Plant
For those seeking a bit more indica, there’s Power Plant, a highly dominant Indica strain. It is 85% Indica and just 15% Sativa. It has medium CBD levels and 20% THC, leading to it its extremely popular effects. This strain originates in South Africa, and although it isn't the only top seller that's out there, it is nonetheless on just about every coffee shop menu you can find in Amsterdam.
People choose Power Plant because it makes them feel energized, talkative, and social, in general. This makes this strain the perfect choice for a night out in the Netherlands, rather than an at-home couch-locking strain. It also helps with certain medical ailments, including headaches or migraines, eating problems or lack of appetite, stress, depression, fatigue, or general types of pain.
Growing Power Plant will result in an indoor yield of about 18 ounces per square meter of the plant, and outdoors it will yield around 15 ounces per plant. It is an average size when it comes to most marijuana strains, and it is stable and not too difficult to grow (although there are more beginner-friendly options out there).

Jack Herer
As opposed to the previous Indica dominant Dutch classics, Jack Herer is dominant in its Sativa side. It is 60% Sativa and 40% Indica. It has medium to high CBD levels and pretty high THC levels (20%). It is another bestseller in the Netherlands, likely because it is considered to be utterly perfect by many marijuana consumers.
Jack Herer is known throughout the world, especially for medical uses. It helps treat mood disorders, such as nervousness, anxiety, depression, and stress-related conditions. It also gives the user some added energy and helps with pain relief, especially when it comes to headaches or migraines.
This fruity, woody strain is easy to grow and has a decent yield. Its outdoor yield is 18 ounces per plant, while its indoor yield is 16 ounces per square meter of plant. It gets to pretty tall heights, which means growing outdoors may be ideal if you are able to safely do so. If not, learn some pruning techniques before taking this strain indoors.

This will be my 3rd grow and second time ever growing anything from seed.
At 9:45am I poured PH’d 6.1 RO water over Jiffy Peat Pellets once they swelled up I used a plastic 1/4” dowel and made a 1/2” hole in the center of the Peat and placed one seed each into each hole and lightly covered the hole up. Placed Dome lid back on and placed a well padded heat mat underneath and last checked temp was 77*F RH 63% Will continue to monitor and cross fingers they all germinate!

And we have movement! Ending day 3 :popcorn:

I went to a friends house and came back home to peat that has been obviously disturbed and two that are almost completely out :) This is end of day 3 since I put them in the Peat pellets. Hopefully by Morning I’ll have heads all popped up ready to say hi
Hands are too shaky to get the camera to focus zoomed in but here’s a couple of pics anywho!

Yesterday around 2pm all but PP2 were above ground. I went ahead and prepared the solo cups with coco and prepared the coco with a light watering of RO water PH 6.1 and put the pellets just on top of the coco and placed them under the 1200 watt Full Spectrum LED at 36” above canopy. By 4pm they all had roots coming out and tap roots about 2-3” long so I went ahead and put the pellets completely in the coco and gave a light watering of the RO water 6.1.

Jump to this morning around 5am PP2 was completely thru the coco. The pics are from 7:45am. WW1 and PP1 were a little leggy so I lowered the light by a couple of inches so now at 34” above canopy. Will continue to closely monitor. 72*F 69% RH. (Pardon the crap pics the zoom always blurry can’t keep hands still enough)

Ok so I have the lights 34” above the canopy, haven’t watered since I put them in the solo cups with coco at around 4pm on the 9th. I just gave them very little water on the 9th but the coco up top is still moist not wet but moist. It’s a mix with 30% pearlite. The temps last night got to 68*F and today without the dome on I can only get it up to 70*F (which is supposed to be acceptable) I did get the temps up to 75*F with the dome partially on. RH FROM 50-65%.I will be going to the store and getting a little space heater for in there. All the other girls look good but WW1 her serrated leaves are drooping , there’s no discoloration she is still green just the drooping of the serrated leaves. I’m guessing water issue but I didn’t give that much. Should I put her in a different cup with fresh super lightly watered coco/ pearlite ? I know when they are cold they don’t drink as much.. or am I just being paranoid? They are 3 days above ground @MrSauga any advice?

Hey CC. Not the Canadian comic-cum-cannabis-carer you called. Mr soreguts here at your service. I reckon they’re all about the roots until they have a few sets up top. I’d try topdressing in some mycothrive, with a spritz for good measure. Keep’em warm, you’ll be gold.
Glad to see another great garden goodonya :cool:

I was advised to feed the girls at 1/4 strength nutes and drop my lights so I fed them 3mls/g Calimagic, 1ml/g Micro, 0.5ml/g Gro, 0.5mls/g Bloom, and 2ml/g Hydrogaurd in RO water PH 5.9. I’ll add the Armor Si after a couple more feeds unless I should go ahead with it on the next one. Within the hour WW1 has started to perk up! Poor baby must have been hungry! Gosh I’m a bad momma! First whoopsie out the way at least. The temp is at 74 and the humidity went up after feed of course to 72%. I got permission to turn the house heat on so shouldn’t get as cold tonight. The light is now about 29” above canopy. Here’s the pics I took about 20 mins ago.

Found you, I'm in for a coco grow as usual!
A great selection of strains too, I'm interested in the WW and JH, I've never heard of the PP.

:meatballs:

Happy growing!

@Canuckush i know you used the peat pellet too, so how often are you watering your girl? I’m worried about keeping them too saturated but don’t want them drooping again like WW1 did. If I was in the fabric pots already wouldn’t be as big of a deal I’m sure but I was trying to up pot to build the root mass. But if anyone thinks I should go ahead and put them in the fabric pots I’m down to do so. They all look good this morning just trying to prevent further issues.

I had a half dozen roots out of the pods by the time I put them into 1 gallon pots so I watered daily, if my nutrients arrived on time I still would have fed twice a day. That was my Durban Poison clones.
My Northern Lights Auto also went directly into a 5 gallon fabric pot after the roots came out of the pod.
I like coco but not a fan of up-potting, it's a little different from soil, in my opinion a little more difficult but doable.
Happy growing.

Thank you! Also I meant to ask you because I have seen so many different answers. I noticed you are using the Flora Trio same as I am and I’ve seen some people say that is needs to be plain watered only every other feed to rid the excess salts and then I’ve heard it needs nutes on every watering? Are you watering with nutes every time? Sorry for all the questions just finding so much conflicting information. Thanks again!

I fed nutes every time, if you get that run off every feed then you should be good, it flushes out the old, I haven't had any issues with salt build up or nutrient lock out yet feeding twice a day.

There's a link at the bottom of my signature about feeding in coco, it's a great read and you'll get a lot of useful information on the first 2 pages alone!

Thank you and I did give it a read too :) Was mostly concerned at first because how long the coco was taking to dry and not be so moist just different than I was anticipating but after re-reading Barney’s article and your help I think I’m set now:slide:
Thanks again!
