Basic question: what method will grow the BIGGEST monsters? Sunlight is a given over ANY light source as we all know... ...now what about the rest?-given the plant was put in a perfect environment with hydro/aero in nice sun/weather...what soil/growing medium would yield the biggest? what a bout quality wise?-organic soil i'd say.? Now, which would out weigh the time/effort in returns? ...i'd presumably use a SOG method of growth(for indica dominant), w/possible LST ,and multiple toppings (of only branchy strains, Sativa/hybrids), ..what are the advatages of a greenhouse? ...any thing else to contribute for primo monsters? (oh, and if you'd like, throw in some GIANT strains, with min. yeilds of 1P+ for average outdoor season.(heat tolerance and length from start to finish are appreciated) STRAIN is VERY important. ...the goal is to grow atleast 2+P per plant (tho, 10p+is obtainable,...i just dont know how...), of the highest quality possible, and it'd def have to be outdoors with ample space/ advanced techniques/mediums and TLC. -The one (or cumulative contribution of replies) to come up with the BEST technique/method to grow 1 of 2 outcomes (or figure out both ) shall be known as the wisest of the ancient herbal masters, and let the knowledge made from this thread be passed on to further our community of 1. BIGGEST yeild per plant (we're talking about 1 year max season(hopefully less to make it a bit easier/more obtainable) [assuming you can grow outdoor below freeze line, or indoor for winter outdoor for seson])-tho multiple year for max yeild is considerable) 2. MOST efficient means of growth. -This is equated by, yield of plant divided by length of time taken to grow it. Ex: a Sativa takes 10months to finish, yeilds 4 pounds=.4lb per month. Now an Indica strain takes 6 months to finish and it yeilds 3 pounds=.5lb per month ...Indica is the winner in this situation. IDEAS??? (and hey, if you can come up with a way to grow bigger indoors than out(or combining the 2)....lets hear it.)I'm sure there 're more Q's to be asked/answered, so we'll see how it evolves. and of course, every method mentioned will be hypothetical, and basically, a theory in which to base growing GIANT TREES, by all means, everyone's situation is unique, but here we try to find what is IDEAL and then know what it is we must all strive to work for, IF growing monsters is your goal. with that being said.... If you'd all be so kind as to take your seat in the circle and have a *puff puff pass*.
