I have been getting all kinds of different information in books online etc...on yields...growing under 1k watt lights. Can anyone tell me what I can expect as a yield from a 3x3 grow space??....and why??...
1K watt light should cover an 8 X 8 area. Limiting your space to a 3 X 3 will limit your harvest to considerably less than could be realized. Depending on which method of growing is used , I'd say , anywhere between 2 to 4 ounces.
No . I mean 2 - 4 oz total in a 3X3 area. 3X3 area will only allow a given number of plants to recieve the proper amount of light to produce a healthy crop. If flowered when small (10 inches tall ) you may be able to squeeze all 12 plants into that area , but they will be stressed. Are these clones or from seed ? If they are from seeds , chances are 50 % will be male . That leaves 6 plants in a 3X3 area , a more reasonable number. :smokin3:
you should be able to get .5 - 1 gram per watt of light. 2 - 4 ounces total is not accurate at all. You can run a SOG or a SCROG in that space and should pull atleast a pound. I think the worst you'll do is about 12 oz's.
shouldn't you wait to try a sog or scrog until after you have a few harvests under your belt? i don't mean to be presumptuous, but i'm not entirely convinced he could handle the extra stress that those methods create.
