        1. This is my first time for this strain. Last year I grew purple lady and it was a colorful flower and very strong smell. This critical widow is coming along nicely I think they are about 4 feet tall but they flower like a long stick all on one branch like you said the more sun the better it goes. I’m naw into the monster bloom and a little feed as well.

        2. rick,

          If white pistils (New) are forming then your plant is not ready to finish. It is still adding new calyx and forming buds.

        3. i bought critical widow seeds from u , growing is going well but the tricons will not turn amber, flowering now for 10 weeks or better ,will they turn amber ?mostly clear small amount cloudy ?noticed keep getting white hairs , any ideas help
