    If you clone that plant that was MC , they r just clones not monster crop.
    More plants will fill your canopy faster. Less veg time , more efficient.
    Crazy veg times just waste power .

    Agree

    Monter cropped plants are slow

    But their clones grow much faster.

    Use it as a mum for clones then flower her out
    And toss it after you have enough clones :)

    12/26/17 Took 8 clones @ 33 days into 12/12. The clones were phenos 2, 4, and 5 of Barneys Farm LSD. Had no idea what the hell I was doing, so just put them in RootRiot cubes and then in a tray of coco.

    1/12/18 these three had very minor rooting after 23 days so I put them in solo's.

    1/21/18 Two of the three took a dump, this lady is the only survivor. She has been under a 6 bulb 24" T5.

    Transplanted into 3 gallon Smart Pots on 2/15/18. The roots were beginning to wrap around the base of the plastic pots. Topped and tied down yesterday.

    Going to start and journal for her if I decide to keep her and figure out what the hell I am going to do with her. G/F says she is so cute that I should go ahead and flower her out.
    In the post above I explain what I think my options are.

    This sounds interesting and I could try this indoors fairly easily.
    When you say two weeks is that two weeks from putting the clones out or two weeks after seeing flowers?

    Indoors, but she will have a 4 x 4 x 5.5' tent all to herself. Have plenty of drip to keep her at the right moisture level.

    I put 4 10g pots in a 4x4

    I’m pulling 4 smartpots in 5-7 days and no more, switched to rigid air pots .
    I’m sick of cleaning them,

    So if I run that single plant what size would you suggest, most of my runs are vertical and I run 5 - 2 gal smart pots.
    As far as cleaning, what I have done is let them dry completely turn them inside out and use a horse brush on them gets rid of any remaining roots, then put them in a bucket of water with something like FloraKleen or like product. After rinsing them they go in the washing machine and all is good, I have used these same pots now for 4 grows. I do think I will replace them after this grow is complete.
    I do know what you mean, they are not easy to clean. I have considered Air pots but have not got around to trying them, why fix what isn't broke.

    Are you running coco, and if so what is your watering method and frequency with the larger pots. The three gallon is the largest I have run.

    Thanks

    I use to make my own pro mix , now I just buy pro mix hp, n add a little perlite.
    I hand water by weight . If the pot is heavy it doesn’t get a drink, if it’s lite it gets water. But when they are going they drink about 5g a day pre 4x4
    When they are young , usually every other day.
