    Ok so here's the deal. Im buying a grow tent next week. 56x56x78 and a 1000w hps. My question is what would have a bigger yield? Fewer big pots in the tent or more smaller pots? i want to maximize my yield. any input would be great.

    You're best bet is to look into training, then it won't matter how many plants you've got...you can amazing results.

    depends on the strain/s you are going to grow, butttt i would probably say more smaller pots, or even a mixture couple of big ones and loadsa small ones

    I agree with Hubert... The only thing more pots gets you is smaller nugs less veg time and way more work watering... I think you should just go by grams per watt and work on that instead of plant numbers... do yurself a favor and do less plants.. less to get in trouble with also... a judge only hears the number of plants not the size...

    rule of thumb - plants in flower mode will get about 2 to 3 times biger so top at max veg hight that will work for your grow area (top at 1 foot flowering might get plant to 2 to 3 feet high) once topped bush it out and take clones off if you want to clean up the branches a bit to space them out before flowering so that the buds don't touch

    because when you harvest and the buds stick together and you take them apart the THC could come off of one and stick to the other one making one of the buds weaker

    you can yeild about the same from both, but with many small plants you can harvest 2 times before one cycle of large plants is done, so i say SMALL. late

    i say the yield depends on light not number of plants. Big plants = less work but takes longer

    I'd say small because if you wanted to like I'm gona do is buy a bunch of CFLs and such and try to get 9 bulbs for 1 plant

    Yep...rezo has the right idea :mrgreen: SOG (Sea Of Green) will give you maximum yield. It's true bigger plants do take longer, but only to veg...they don't take longer for the bud to mature.

    Do whatever you think you can handle, if you do big plant you are going to have to learn hw to train (probably) So if you dont have the time for that go with more smaller plants. But just for the record my vote is with fewer, bigger plants and some training.

    well here are my most recent pics http://www.rollitup.org/general-marijuana-growing/71921-bigbud-day-52-pics-do.html#post824892
    and my sig is my journal. i have 13 plants crammed into a 18x36" area and i'd say it is a ton more work. i have to take out the front 5 just to water the back ones.

    if you have a veg chamber you can harvest big plants just as quickly as small ones. thats what i'm doing next time. gunna train 4-6 big plants to make a canopy (which will take more time though i guess too. lol)

    try them both out. see what you like then stick with it.

    I got 5g off of a small part of my plant that I'm flowering and its only about 4'' long and I only took 3 parts off the tops
