Growing for size.

  1. Well, I've put some plants in. I've got about 10 sprouts so far in two different locations. I'm expecting about 10 more sprouts. My question is: How should I grow my plants to get them as big as possible? I want to be making the largest possible yield, so any advice, techniques would be appreciated.

    I mixed a fertilizer and lime with the soil before I sprouted ungerminated seeds so the ferts would not burn them.
  2. That was little to do with it... What makes you think that seeds that germinate in the soil and sprout in the soil are any different than seeds that are germinated somewhere else? The fertilizer can still hurt them. They really don't need any fertlizers like that for atleast 2 and 1/2 weeks. As for yield, if the area is very secure and closed off you should try to train the plants to keep them low and horizontal to get as many branches shooting out as you can for lots of bud sites. If you grow them well though, you should still get a good yield. Outside plants usually have a much larger yield if nothing goes wrong.
  3. see, i'm not looking to train them but i see what youre saying with bud sites...what im trying to do is make my plants more like trees though. very tall (at least 6 or 7 feet) and very thick. ive seen VERY large plants outdoors, and i wanted to know if there were steps or methods of growing my plants to make them huge.
  4. Dig out a cubic yard of soil, replace it with a cubic yard of soil enriched with compost, horse manure, worm casts, you name it. Or two cubic yards for even better.

    I grow in pots on my terrace, this year I have 11 UK gallon pots (bigger in US gallons). I know that the bigger the pot the bigger the plant and the better the yield.
  5. fimming and lst and if you dont want to train use FERTS. natural ferts work best for me but you could try some of mg stuff for tomatoes
  6. I make a kick-ass organic fert from Russian comfrey. Ferts help a massive amount, but a big mass of good quality compost is essential for really large yields.
