I harvested Damnesia 2 tonight and began flushing Damnesia 1. D2 was huge, and D1 is even bigger. I won't be surprised if I get a full lb. out of those two combined. I'm totally beat from trimming...
I flipped to 12/12 on day 66 from when the seeds went into paper towels. I don't count the seedling stage as part of the veg stage.220+ grams per plant ! That's impressive!
You did 52 days veg time? Must help in getting this kind of harvest...
I vegged 35 days on this grow. Even so, WW became a bit too tall/big for my setup.
2 weeks more in Veg and it would have been a tree I guess ;-)
P.S.: Trimming is a pain...
Vegging is less about time and more about size. I put in plants to flower 100% based on size. With clones... seeds... etc there are too many variables in veg to go off time. Heck people argue over when flower starts.. When flipped to 12/12? or when pistils show.?
The larger the plant in veg the larger the yield from flower. But yes most people don't have the space indoors
There are so many ways and techniques to fit one's goals...Along these lines, I've been thinking about what is the most efficient use of the 4x4 tent and my current MH/HPS lights. I've tried 2 plants in 10-gal pots and 4 plants in 7-gallon pots. I would like to try a SOG setup with something like 15 plants in 1-gal, or maybe 9 plants in 3-gal, but I also have to consider possible legal impacts with that setup. For now, 4x7-gal seems best.
For length of veg, I like to create a plant structure that supports about 15-20 colas. For me, that seems to take 7-8 weeks. I'm sure there's probably techniques I could try to improve on that.

But the idea of not-training (maybe one topping) the plants in a s.o.g and harvesting sooner seems appealing.
That method may also be interesting to :
- try several different strains in one grow
- search for the best pheno of one strain
A friend of mine has a two level growing space. On the top shelf, vegging seedlings, clones, etc. Bottom shelf : flowering plants. The bottom is protected from light with a curtain I think. The space is limited, but he's always cloning and growing permanently. He has about 7 strains going.
Lucky you, you can legally grow a few plants...
I'm in Canada and it's legal to grow... but not in the province of Quebec; They are so incoherent. ;-(
P.s.: Growing big plants in small pots is great, but they have to be watered all the time. A SOG with different strains... may require constant attention to watering too.
Wine boxes = slower drying ;-)I'm having a bit of a problem with drying/curing. It's so dry here now that the hanging buds are bone dry on the outside within about 3 days....crispy and falling apart. But when I jar them at that point, they really moisten up in the jar then need to be taken out and laid out on paper or go into paper bags for hours at a time to dry out more. I'm afraid of ending up with grassy smelling buds. So this is my newest challenge.
