White Widow Automatic Feminised seed is a new cross of the famous Dutch White Widow. This is a strain heralded over the world as a true classic. After obtaining an excellent clone of the original White Widow seed, Royal Queen Seeds then crossed it with their best autoflowering varieties.
This strain is said to produce some rather resinous buds with a mainly indica appearance, in line with the non-autoflowering original White Widow.
The White Widow Automatic, however, has a flowering period of only 75 days from beginning to end and produces a slightly smaller plant of only 50 cm on average indoors, or up to 100 cm with some.
This plant exhibits mostly Indica phenotypes with a citrusy sweet and sour aroma to it, similar to that of the White Widow. This strain's genetics have been stabilised over a few years to ensure the best product possible.
It has quite an impressive yield for that of an autoflowering strain, producing around 40 to 160 grams per plant dependent on conditions of growth.
In making this strain an automatic feminised seed, Royal Queen Seeds has simplified the growing process even more. Regular seeds will usually produce a 50/50 split of male to female plants, when in fact the males are somewhat useless as it is the females that are needed to grow a crop.
This means that a grower is required to spend twice the money and time, as well as needing twice the space to ensure the correct amount of females is produced.
This is not the case with feminised seeds, however, as they ensure a 99.99% chance that all seeds will be female, ideal for the more inexperienced grower, as it eliminates the annoyance of dealing with the male plants.
Some assume that if a seed is feminised, it cannot be used to breed, however, if an experienced grower wanted to breed, they could do so through careful manipulation of the females in order to make them produce pollen, meaning the males are not needed.
It is a difficult process to master, but when done correctly, the resulting offspring will be of a better quality and uniformity.
The dramatic reduction to the flowering period, due to the autoflowering process, combined with the feminised aspect makes this a very low maintenance strain.
