Hi again Khaled, thanks for the reply. It's strange that this hasn't happened before if you always plant at this time of year. It could be that this version of White Widow has been bred to be ultra-fast flowering and this means it was triggered to flower earlier, otherwise I can't think of an explanation, unless something has changed in the growing environment compared to other years. Has the lighting changed in any way? I just know that, if I germinate seeds outdoors in February here in Spain, they would definitely flower between March and May if I didn't give them some extra light. As for the process of getting 2 harvests from the plants, it's nothing special for this variety, indeed it will work for almost all cannabis genetics, except autos and some of the fastest flowering Indicas. In actual fact it's my favourite way to select plants for the summer. I have a small harvest in my greenhouse from March to May, and then the best plants from that crop will be re-vegetated and placed outdoors for the main season. I hope that helps, best wishes and happy growing!
Hi I ordered the White Widow feminizada Dutch Passion seeds and planted them in February,they germinated well.but ther r flowering now....they r still tiny.is this normal?I was planning for a much bigger harvest.

Hi Khaled, thanks for your comment and question. Sorry to hear things aren't going as planned with your grow. Tell me, are you growing them outdoors? Whereabouts in the world are you growing? If you're growing outdoors in the northern hemisphere then it's natural for the plants to start to flower during March, as the photoperiod is roughly 12/12, like late summer. This can be avoided by giving the plants extra hours of light to keep them in vegetative growth. There's more info on the subject in our blog post about off-season growing. Now that they are flowering, I'd let them finish but leave some healthy leaves and buds on the plants when you harvest so that, with some care, they can "re-veg" (return to vegetative growth) and flower again at the end of summer. They'll get much bigger and you'll get a better harvest in autumn.
I hope that helps, all the best and happy growing!
