Critical Widow strain grow information
The Critical Widow strain is great for beginners. The plant doesn’t get too bushy, and it has thin leaves, meaning maintenance is easier than other cultivars. Installing a trellis or support is important to support the weight of the main cola.
Critical Widow is a hardy plant that is naturally mold resistant and robust enough to survive most conditions thanks to its genetics.
To maximize yields, maintain a temperature of 70–80°F and keep humidity between 40–50%, reducing it to 30–40% for the last two weeks.
The plant grows very tall and in a limited grow space. Applying the screen of green (ScrOG) method or topping helps keep it manageable.
Outdoors, the Critical Widow marijuana strain loves a Mediterranean climate and needs harvesting in mid-late October.
With the right amount of care, you can expect generous yields of up to 18oz. per m² indoors, and 20oz. per plant outdoors at harvest time.

Man if you want big, stinky, sticky, crystaly buds this one is for you. I ordered 4 seeds that all germinated. They were transfered outside when the first couple nodes formed and it was topped. They grow shorter than the other plants I started but the colas are nothing short of huge. I was late to cover the plants when it rained and did lose one cola due to the start of mold and bud rot. The colas are that dense so care must be taken when budding starts. The rest of the plant is ok. looking to harvest in the next week. This bud smells like the “STUFF”. My guess is I could have up to half a pound of bud per plant when dried. This is a quality over quantity plant for sure.
