My long vegging theory.....crazy?
Posted 15 June 2012 - 02:56 PM
I am growing just ONE plant (C99, from female seed company) indide a 4'(W)x5'(L)x6'(H) box. I am using a 600w HPS, promix and GH nutes.
This will be my third grow and I've had good results with topping and LSTing but I do not scrog.
So....here's my thought/theory:
If I vegged her for 2-3 months and topped and LSTed her throughout that time would I end up with a plant with a very large number of bud sites or is there a maximum number of branches/budding sites that a plant will produce regardless of how long you let her veg for?
Do any of you have any experience (good or bad) with what happens when you allow a plant to veg for a very long time?
Thanks for taking the time to read my noob question:smoke:

if you want take a look in the scrog thread my last post gives you a idea on how big a plant can get i cloned in jan and have had them under flourescents plants will end up being 5 - 6 feet tall by 5 to 6 feet wide when flipping into flower giving me possibly 2 to 3 pounds per plant i hope

Thanks for your thoughts justatoruser. I'm just trying to come up with a way to absolutely maximize the yield from a single plant. I don't really care about how cost efficient it is or maximum gram/watt. I just want to fill up my grow space with as much "green" as I can. I'm a patient man!
Thats fair enough, but there is always an efficiency argument, because if it gets to a point where 2 more weeks of veg will yield you an exra ounce but four weeks of veg will only yield you an ounce and a half, by this reasoning you may aswell save yourself 2 weeks and crack on with the next plant - even if it is one at a time. I think you will be very impressed with 8-10 weeks vegging, I dont think youll gain a substantial amount from vegging beyond that. Good luck, Id be keen to see your results whatever.

I have made so many mistakes from my first 2 grows and that is the kind of student I am. Make the bo bo and hopefully, only one time.
The first 2 grows I was running a bit scared and now I have so much more confidence I am cautiously optimistic about having a really great grow this time.
I tried small, and I tried big pots and I have found for my situation the 3 gallon pot is the right size for me. I buy the Ikea trash cans for 2bucks(euros), melt small holes for drainage and they are perfect.
Someday I want to be able to grow a totally organic grow but until then I will use the Hesi which actually works well for me.
Plants for this grow, 1 lsd, 1 vio kush, 1 mazar,1 big bend and 1 ufo (don't know what it is). Growing is getting more fun as I go along and get a little better every grow.
I swear by Spinosad (it rid me of a secere Thrips infestation). I also tried a crop of different Autos and I found them so easy to grow but I was really sad about the quality of the smoke.
Happy Trails! in Berlin
