I'm running a perpetual grow. I usually move plants from veg to flowering when they reach about 7"-12" and don't pay attention to their actual age really. In the past I had scarcity in clones so I would just put out what I had. Now I want to know how to get the most mature thus densest plants. Some of my plants are nice and thick at about 1 to 2 ft and have decent yield. Then the rest are slightly taller and stretched and have small buds yielding probably a half to third of the thick ones. I want to never have the tall skinny ones and want a room full of the thick dense type. What does this have to do with? They are all from the same strain (KC 39) which is 60 40 sativa indica cross. Same strain but from different moms, some clones are taken from the tops of young vegging plants and some are taken from month old mothers. Does it have to do with from where the clones were taken or the amount of time they are vegged for etc? Its so hard to figure out which mom or type of donator is producing the better plants. Is it because young clones mature way more rapidly than that off an older mother? Or is it because a got lucky with a phenotype mother? Any help is appreciated..
