Hey GC, :hello:

What would be the maximum yield I could expect off 5 plants under a 600 watt hps cool-tube in a 1m2 grow tent? The temps are in 70's and humidity is at around 50%. They are planted into 15L pots and vegged to 25". I know there won't be an exact prediction, but I would love to see what you guys have produced and see what you think I could yeild using these specs ..... o ye, the strain is skunk #1

Peace!

:smoke:

I grew 5 plants in 1m2 with a 600watt poot light in 10L pots, no humidity control as such just a fan on when the light was on, no ph/cf control as i dont have any meters, and got 16oz of great bud, and that was my 2nd grow, they where really good clones of my mates ICE i topped em all the way through, few pics in my gallery thing, depends whether from seed or clone, oh yeah i only vegged mine for 15days where all around 12" finished around 36"ish.you dont have to be really precise with everything to get good smoke, but it helps, i cant afford those luxuries :) id say you wouldnt get more than 20oz and thats pushing it i reckon, skunks a decent yeilder i guess.

I pulled about 400g my last grow with 4 northern light under 600w cooltube, grew in coco, vegged for about 5 weeks.
If grew well you could easily get 3-5 oz a plant. Goodluck.

I got about 1 oz out of a skunk #1 plant under 600W but the conditions were less than optimal. Skunk didn't yeild well (my blueberry plants had double the yield and they were in the same tent w/ same conditions) so temper your expectations a bit. 3-5oz per plant w/ a 5 week veg is pretty difficult to achieve but he was growing NL so it's a bit more believeable.

Thanks man, just checked out your grows and they look great!! excellent work!

Im just hoping to get around 8 - 9 oz from the 5 plants. Next time I'm going to have a scrog grow. More plants with less veg time (2week). Iv heard this is a great way of maximising yield with less time and electricity! I was thinking 10 - 18 plants in a 1m2 tent with 2 wk veg. Is that too much plant for that space?

They were about a foot high when I switched them grew to nearly a metre I didn't have the space.... I wanted to veg them longer and probably would have ended up with a lot more if I did !!!!

Heres a link to when they were 4 weeks 2 days into flower I took them all the way to 9 weeks.

Actually, with a scrog grow, you are going to have less plants...probably around 5 or 6.

Ok cool. Still quite a noob at training techniques..... More reading me thinks. Il concentrate on this current grow, I'm aiming as high as 8 - 9 oz because with 3 plants in the same tent I yielded 4 1/2 oz (dry weight) that was with a 400 watt and the plants were literally half the size when switched to 12/12. Now I have 5 plants 600 watts..... The rest il just have to wait and see. Stay tuned for better pic updates. Switching to 12/12 at 25" with bottom popcorn bearing stems cut away. Thanks for any feedback guys, love this website!

Peace.

That's Almost the EXACT same setup as me except the strain. Do you use a Cool tube? any pics of your girls? 8.5 oz is cool and I wouldn't mind reaping that from 4 plants! Do you top them?
