Sea of green compared usual growing.
I need your opinions and input for some questions.
If you have a sea of green area of one square meter, with 24 plants and one square meter with 2 plants. The growing time will be different for the two options, but this is not important. The plants will grow fully to its potential within the limits of one square meter. Both setups will be harvested when the crop is optimal. Time is not to be compared.
What will give the most crop? Approximately how much will this 1 square meter give? On almost all webpages for selling seeds, the crop/harvest is set to per square meter, is it the same for all methods to be used? So the result of 24 top buds on one square meter will be the same as two plants who has been tied down and fully used the one square meter?
I hope you can take the time to give me a respond on this, as this really means a lot right now!
The flowering time should not change with the amount of plants. A 70 day strain, if it's a clone, will still finish at the same time under the same environmental conditions, SOG or not.
Your question is difficult to answer without knowing more about your room, lighting and strain. SOGing is beneficial if you can have large numbers of clones with the strain perfectly dialed in. They will yield big time but... 1. it's a log of plants to take care of and 2. legal implications of having that many plants.
If you are a new grower I would not recommend SOG. That method is useful for small spaces, lower lighting levels and constant staggered output. Start with a couple plants and get the hang of it first.
You have to consider time when talking SOG. The whole point of the method is to squeeze in an extra harvest annually by removing the veg time needed for other methods. You remove the method's reason for being if you don't give SOG the time advantage it's due.
As far as harvest density, there should be little or no difference, all things being equal.
Are you in America? If so, don't grow SOG. Most anywhere else you're fine, but not in America, even med states with plant limits.
yea in california and lets just say hypatheicly
Remember, 100 plants and you are in Federal territory. Beware.
na not that big i only have one 1000 watt hps with those three moms so thats why im asking for my setup i have more pics in my journal
you can get just as much with scrog the lower the plant count the lesser the charge if you where to get popped you can have your next crop ready for flower by the time you harves your first crop and you'll have bigger buds and less plants to water it takes a lot longer to water and give nutes to more smaller plants and flushing all them little plants plus I like big bitches gives you something to hold onto

This is also where most of the foliage will be present. The sog maximizes the light usage by training the foliage to be mostly the same distance from the light allowing maximum efficiency for the area.
