    perpetual harvest questions

    i am going to be starting a new grow. I am planning on doing a perpetual harvest. As of right now i have a 400 watt and a 1000 watt hid lights. I am hoping to use the 400 watt for veg and the 1000 watt for flowering. Only think im not sure about is if that will be sufice to harvest 2 pounds of dried flowers every month and half or so. i was thinking i might need to add an extra light in the flower but if not necessary i would like to keep it at two.

    Just looking for some more experaince with something like this. if you need more info please feel free to ask. thanks 420mag pce and love.

    Im assuming you have a 400watt Mh and a 1000watt HPS right? The best way to have a perpetual harvest is to grow sog style. Planting new seeds, or taking clones every week.

    Or grow 12/12 and plant new seedlings if males pop up. New harvest every 30 days after the first 60-75.

    Every month ay?

    Just remember that you'll need to keep space available
    for the Next batch, every month.

    Like StonerG says, SeaOfGrass is the best way to go.

    I don't think you get it. Start with 12, pull the males at 21-25 days and start seedlings.

    The females are done on 12/12 in 65-75 days, followed in 21-25 days by the plants that were replaced with new seeds. Of those seeds, you will pull the males at 21-25 days and let the females grow for another 45 days. Since you pulled the first batch of females at 60-75 days, you start new seedlings in those posts right away, and repeast the process. You will always have between 3 and 6 plants (At least) in maturity every 30 days.

    Unless of course, your first batch are all females. Then, well, who is gonna complain :-)

    sweet thanks for all the input. Sry, been really busy as of late. I am planning on using the flowerclone method for the first two harvests then im gonna use mother for the rest of the time once more lights are added. I have one more question, where the hell is the Fox Farm Bush Doctor. And is there any products out there by other companies that will substitute for it.

    actually its advertised as a flush/rinse. 2 drops per gallon "Use FoxFarm BushDoctor SlegeHammer combined with FoxFarm Big Bloom in conjunction with other Fox Farm Nuts. to releive plat strees, unlock unwanted salt bonds and allow for increased nutritional flow."

    Sounds pretty sweet to me. Just havnt seen any.

    Re: perpetual harvest questions

    yea i have never used anything like it either. So i was curious if it would be worth using. I think im just gonna stick with flushing out the plant every couple weeks. One week till the start of the indoors cant wait to bring my girls back in side, and another 3 or 4 weeks and ill be picking some pretty pink flowers out side...mmmmm. Been a year since ive had some home made meds.

    Re: perpetual harvest questions

    Curious, couldn't find much on "bush doctor" sounds like you have to check hydro stores mostly? Also does any one have any experience with fox farms,"big bloom"? I've heard good things about this, but not sure if I should change what I'm currently doing. I'm using GH(general Hydroponics) products like Flora nova and such....I love it but would love to hear from more seasoned growers about these two products.
    Thanks...

    Bushmaster isnt a neccesity. Any thing from Fox Farms is good, I use it myself. Enough said =]
