I've been growing for about 3 years now and the best I've been able to do is 1.5lbs dry per light. What have been some of your best crops and what did you do differently that time than yo usually do?

Is 2.5-3lb/light possible? Would love to hear some feedback from some of you more experienced growers. Provide as much info as you can for example did you top and if so how many times and whats your grow medium, how long you veg and what kinda nutes do you use.

Wanna get the most out of your 1000W this is how: VERTICAL GROWING. Some get 1.4 grm per watt, this is my first time and I have a week to go and I can tell you my plants look way better than they did when the light was horizontal.

That certainly looks way better than mine. I'll post pics tomorrow, they're on their 4th week, I'd be curious what your yield will be compared to what you normally get. How many pots do you have around each light? How long did you veg your girls for?

when I had the light horizontal out of 12 plants only 4 were getting the right amount of foot candles, now all of them share the same amount (8.500 FC).

I use a 1000w for about 10-11 plants. I use dwc buckets. I veg for a month then normally end up with about 5 females and I normally get a half pound or more of each plant. So about 2.5lb. Ive gotten 3lb. one harvest.

Its easy enough to vent a vert garden with a Vertitube.

I use one for my 79 plant 3000w Octagon Garden.

No I'm an idiot. I thought he was talking about where you have the bulb hanging vertically instead of horizantilly. Thats why I deleted my post. I didn't know he meant that type of vertical growing. But I looked at your setup on the link and its impressive. How much did that 3000watter light run you? Looks like something I might want to get into in the future. Right now I'm doing DWC buckets.

Thats pretty impressive. What are dwc buckets are those the regular 5 gallon buckets? Do you also veg in those or do you start in a smaller pot ? What strain are you growing?

Mine is a soil set-up and regularly does 2lbs per light.


Are you also using 5 gallon buckets? IF so how many plants per light are you putting in and how long are you vegging for? I've been getting 1.5 in 2 gallons but I'm debating switching to 5 gallons and reducing the number of plants per light from 25 to 10-12.

Are you growig kosh too?

Thats pretty impressive but i guss the key is a smaller number of plants.

Mine is a vert set-up with 79 - 3 gallon pots. I start from clones and vege for 3 weeks under T-5 flouros and then 1 week under 3000w HPS. From there its a 70 day bloom.


I used to veg for 2 weeks under a 1000w MH in 500ml beer cups then move them to 2 gallons for 8 weeks under 1000w HPS per plant. This time I've made changes to my veg room and i'm going to Veg in 1 gallon pots for a 4-5 weeks then move them to 2 gallon pots. Now you've got me thinking maybe I should do less plants with 3 gallon pots instead.
