    I average about 5oz in a 5 gallon pot with a 250hps at 75-81 degrees, no co2 but other than that perfect conditions.

    yes 4 oz is pretty easy and quite possible to get up to 6 oz

    just remember that its only the top buds that is close to the light that will be top quality, lower bud sites, specially with a 250W wont be that dens or mature and IMO more suitable for oil/hash making so maybe 2-3 Oz of top buds and 1-2 oz of flimsy buds ..

    keep the plant low and bushy, look in to Scrog maybe, seen Ppl get good results with one plant and low Watt light ..

    Well the light is gonna be 250 watts the last 3-4 weeks of flower before that 175.... I have no scrog sceen, it's more of a net trellis thats made of string. The only thing I can do with this trellis is tie the plant down I guess ???

    dude, get rid of the tin foil, thats first.. It may work for the Trailer Park Boys, but is not recommended.. Second, If this is your first grow, or second or third, just think of it as a learning expierence, and whatever you get be happy with it.. Even if you only get a quarter ounce, at least you gained more knowledge about cannabis cultivation..

    1gram/watt.. Is the maximum you will get.. So a half pound is the most you will get.. And thats with everything going perfectly, and in perfect conditions.. So like it was said earlier, if yoou get 4 ounces, i would be ecstatic

    The tin foil has helped keep my res cooler. My 2nd grow had problems with temp and it created bacteria which would put my ph in the 4.0 range........ ANything less than 50 grams here would be a total disappointment.

    what?? no one can pull more than a gram per watt, is that watt you're saying?? complete horse shit imo.. my friend on here pulled a bit over 19 oz's off of one apple jack plant under a 250 watt'er in a dwc... i'm not great at math, but i'd be willing to be that's way more then one gram per watt.. :D

    A couple of questions about Mindmelted's grow

    1.) How long did he veg for ?? Im going 18/6 for about 3 weeks.
    2.) I didn't see any evidence of a scrog. Also he never topped so how did he get all of that light penetration with that tall plant ??
    3.) He didn't scrog either ??
