    Hi there guys just wanted to run an idea through all the pros here, i was thinking of doing a some what perpetual grow and my idea is as follows.

    I got 2 4x4 tents and was thinking of growing 6-8 plants using regular seeds, regardless of the female count would it work if i vegged out the seeds for 8 weeks and then sent them into the flower tent and when that gets done i start a new batch of seeds and vegged them for 8 weeks.

    So basically id have 8 weeks veg for the seeds and 8 weeks flower (my strain takes bang on 8 weeks to flower). So as my vegging plants hit 8 weeks old from seed they will go to the flowering tent and then the ones that were in the flowering tent will get harvested and at the same time id be starting a new batch of seeds for the veg tent.


    I worked it out and if i am right id be harvesting my plants every 8 weeks once ive got the cycle fully started.


    Does this about right or am i missing something?

    To save on time and electricity, I would take 2 cuttings off every plant once they are big enough. Label and clone them with 12 hrs of light so they go straight to flower. Now you can throw away the males and get that wasted space back. After the 2nd week of flower, you can also clean up the under side and clone these for your next run, knowing they are females.

    @Smokinr33 You would just throw them away. They are only to tell you which plant is male and which is female. Now you know which one's to put into flower. The cuttings you take in week 2 are female, so these clones you would veg like normal.

    Oh i see but no need for that bcoz this strain shows sex during veg anyways so my plan was to start more seeds than what i want so if theres any males the female ratio woukd have a better chance
