How long u veg? That will dry out at about 225gs pretty good.how many lights?
Also im new to instagram and not sure how to find what im looking for. Clones near me.
Im going to set up some vertical farming trays any recomendation for led lights to use? The shelves will have like 4 or 5 ft between them.
Spectre led is the best deal on newer tech led that I know of right now, they have 640 watts fixture for 650 right now. They might not be the best tech out but they were right up there few months ago that's just how it goes with that. But for that price I'm considering grabbing a few of em.

Otherwise the gavita fixtures or any of the bar style fixtures.

Well as far as veg with only having one flower room going atm way too long, lol. I'm not really sure almost a whole flower cycle this time. I will have my other room going asap just kinda on hold for harvest atm. Don't have much left to do.

My big plants pulled over 900g dry.
I'm progressively going up in size and dropping numbers of plants. I always grew 9 plants per light in 3 gallons, first run here was in 5 gallons and now I'm in 7 gallons with like 5.3 plants per light. I'm trying to get down to 4 plants per light, prob in 10 gallon pots and gonna try to hit a lb per plant so 4 per light. Which I know is doubtful so I'll always be happy with 3 per fixture but am thinking of adding supplemental led or cmh to get my numbers up after I max out my space.
Next few runs are all mixed strain runs as I just grabbed a bunch of new cuts to hunt through for something that performs well for me. I have a couple nice mothers but want a nice variety. I had a tray of clones ready for another mono crop but ending up losing quite a few when I got lazy and was a few days behind on getting out the dome.

Go look in the vertical growing section for my thread, 'vertical goodness'. No need to go through the whole thing, the modern era starts around page 125 or so.

Those led wont be to powerful for being like 2 ft from plant? I need to cover a 2x8 sog with 4per sf

Trimmed up the first plant from the harvest last night was 1130 grams wet. We wet and dry trim because there is only two of us doing it all so we start with wet and finish off the rest after dry. I'd prefer dry but that would mean paying people to come in and get it done to stay on schedule and I try to avoid hiring outside help mostly because of trust issues lol.

I'm almost positive I'm gonna hit 3 per light this time.

As far as help with the big plants, it's more my timing is off and veg space isn't big enough. I end up with plants way too big during veg which requires chopping on them several times before there is room in a flower room. I need more veg space and I'll be starting on that shortly but until that's finished I need to take clones later than I have been so they don't out grow my space.
How long did you veg plants to hit 3 per light?

They were in solo cups for a couple weeks then in 2 gallon pots for 4 weeks then in 7 gallon pots for 2 weeks.

Would shelf growing be considered vertical gardening? Maybe

How long did you veg?
Shelf growing is called vertical but it isn't.

I vegged for a couple of months, but I did it in a separate room. I built my setup to be able to move 6' tall plants quickly and easily from veg to bloom- or into the back of a pickup and then anywhere lol

8 weeks? Dayum no shit. So u get what just 3 harvests per yr?
Nah I got a veg room and two flower rooms. Well almost I got to finish doing wiring and hanging lights in second flower room. I wish had built my veg room a little bigger cause of the size these things get, but Im gonna build a drying room and small room for mothers and teens.

I should be between 8-10 harvest per year with the other flower room done. With a drying room and another veg room should be able to get closer to 10 once I get those done. I kinda ran out of money for a while after moving and getting the first veg and flower room set up. I'm finally getting caught up but it will take me a couple more runs to get it all how I want it. I still need rolling tables, some quest dehuey, irrigation and more AC. I'm gonna get by air cooling my second room for a couple runs during winter.

With planning and a strict schedule of moving plants between veg, bloom and harvest, you can get 6 runs a year per bloom space at 61 days a cycle. That's why I created a system where my plants were easily carried from place to place, even when they were full sized (6' tall by 4' wide by 18" thick).

Those extra runs add up in terms of annual output!

Yeah I'm trying to get down to 63 days per cycle in flower room, but it requires more veg space and a drying area. I am trying to get it all done by 1st of the year, just requires stealing part of my garage lol. Oh well I'll let the wife park inside so don't get in too much trouble.

Damm quests are not cheap. When i saw pm spots i ran and bought 1 and 2 days later another humidity in my state is out of this world. 3k each.

61 days isnt long enough imo. Not if u want good thc numbers. Least in my expirence. More lke 70-77. To be good and ripe. Unless its a fast harvester.

It is strain and conditions dependent. Running the room warmer with stronger nutrient solutions, higher humidity and CO2 supplementation will see the plants finish faster.

I rarely go past 65 days, on some seed runs a few phenos here and there could use more time. My critical kush which I haven't ran in a while can finish around 56 days. Its all about genetics and finding the right keepers.
 
Wow great read, so happy to see you finish successful (especially with all the doubters). My state will be legal pretty soon and your thread is an inspiration to plan for success.
