Default question for cloners

Hi Cloners


Today I'll be receiving between 6 and 12 clones. I want to grow them out as quickly as possible but also want a "reasonable" yield.

My room is set up for either a 6, 12 or 24 plant scrog (pot size depenant) with the largest pots being 10 litre, the smallest being 2.5 litre)

What I want to know is, if I put them straight to 12/12 after rooting (or will they arrive rooted?) how much will they grow? example - if they're 3 inches when I put them to 12/12 what height will they reach? (I know thats geneticly hardcoded too, but..lets assume this is a 50/50 sat/ind or a medium size) - will it be worth trying to utilise the screen even if its not 50% full? I've heard a plant will stretch during flower, is this "vegative" growth in terms of nodes or just getting tall (with bigger gaps between nodes)?

Should I veg them instead? if so how long for...

I've got more of these questions... I'll ask more as they occur to me

thanks for the tip man - I was getting a bit turned on by the fact my mate does these in 6 weeks start to finish (thats WAY too fast imo) but then again he does 50 at a time so even at 10g per plant he covers his 500g..I'll grow em up for a few weeks then and put them to scrog

Hi Jamie,

Let the plants fill 1/3 or half of the screen before fliping to 12/12. Let them build a strong root mass and you will benefit with increased yelds.

And forget about 2 liters pots for flowering, unless you wanna do a sog. And even soging i've always used 5 litters.

Small rootmass = Poor yelds

how high above your tops is the screen? will that leave you enough space below the canopy for proper air movement? i like using an agricultural netting for my scrogs, the openings are bigger and not so rigid.

noted thanks Buddha, I'm gonna let the screen go to about 50% I think - I definitely want lots of rootage

Hi Infiniti, the screen is 9 inches above the medium and was 2inches above the tops of the plants when I put them in (at 7 inches). right now though 5 out of six are growing through the screen. I've pulled one plant back through as it was getting a bit ahead of the others and will start pulling the others back through tomorrow when they've cleared the screen by around 3 inches... I'll keep training them back until I'm 50% full as above

theres lots of room underneath and when it gets a bit fuller, I'll add another fan just for the underside
