    I have a 4x4ft. flood table under a 1000watt light. Im using hydroton as my medium.
    I want a big yield in a SOG growing method. I have about 7ft of hieghts in my grow room. One veg room and a flowering room. I want to know what is the best growing method to use in a hydroponic system. I want to harvest every 6-8weeks. I have a couple mother plants. How long should I veg. clones for? Im growing in square pots that I think are 5x5x8in... Not sure gotta get the right measurements. How many plants can you fit in the table? The size of the room in 6ft by 6ft. Thanx for reading.. Ill appreciate all the help n tipz

    4 per square foot you could get 64 plants in there i would not veg at all at this point freshly rooted clones straight to the flower table and eliminate any branch on the lower 3rd that gets over a inch long. another thing is i would stick with one strain a grow so your plants are fairly uniform in height. if you could get 14g single colas on each you could pull 2lbs per 8 weeks which is pretty dam good you will prably need some c02 to achieve this but maybe not a 1000w is a good light for that table.

    here is 4 of mine only 3 weeks in flower and already starting to put on some weight. could easily throw 32 of these in each of my 2x4 trays which is exactly what im going to do lol.

    Yea those pots look very much like the ones I got. Do you lollipop your plants? or top them? Lst? So you take your clones and put them straight to 12/12 right. What if you did a Scrog method would you get more yield. How big are your clones when you cutt em? Do you use CO2 is not what is your yield for your 32 plants?

    I currently have 8 plants in my 4x4 table and they range from 3ft.5in to 4ft 2in tall. They are so big and 15in away from the lights. I tweaked cuz I didnt think they were gonna get that big once I switched them to 12/12. I did some Lst on them today so they wont get too close to the lights and also to get some more light to the lower branches. This is my first indoor grow. Strain unknowned. I did Removed alot of unwanted lower leaves and big fan leaves that were covering bud sites. Idk how much of a yield im going to have but I hope its at least 2pounds. They are in 2nd week of flowering. I will get pics tomorrow.

    it is ok to remove lower branches but not the fan leaves, that is when you remove a lower branch just cut it off entirely with its leaves and the branches you want to keep on plant, just keep it whole and with its fan leaves. tie down the taller plants try make the canopy as even as possible. dont rush things, wait till they ripen, this depends on strain. get a pocket scope to check when trichs are done.

    somewhat lollypop but im just removing everything from the lower 3rd of the plant because this ensures good airflow when you have that many single cola plants in one square foot some of the nugs are going to touch obviously so air flow is key to not getting mold to those nugs now you got to remember sog is not high single plant yield but yield in high plant volumes. a 14g main cola is not that big at all i have seen much bigger but when you pull 32 of them it adds up fast and every two weeks at that. i do not top them lst or any of that the freshly rooted clones are about 5" when they go in and about 1.5-2 feet tall when done in the second and fourth weeks i prune the lower portions like i said any branch over 1" gets the ax so only the main and some little branches that join into the main cola are left creating one big main cola. scrog is not necessary for sog because its the same general concept exept you are making a single plant have multiple main colas by training with the screen. my clones are about 5-6 inches tall when i cut them as soon as they have a good root system its off to the flower room where there journey begins. for yields in my room i havent had a full tray of 32 quite yet but off of 5 i got 4 oz's i let them veg for 2 weeks since i had the space so they were a little bigger. im getting the moms going little by little they are the key to a successful sog op if you let your moms go the whole op crashes so good healthy moms are a must. c02 not yet nest month for sure will be expecting 1lb every to weeks at that point.

    dAm i cant find ma camera but ill post picks asap. They are supa TALL!. 8 plants and they took up all the space. I did pull out two cuz they were males. and 16 in a 4x4 table to a pound. Eh idk bout that I want more and Ive been looking at some scrog videos, i like how u can get multiple main colas but lesser plants. I do have sum height in my room so I dont want to put the clones straight to flowering. I want them to get a little big. THen flower em' .. Ima keep searching for better methods to use.
