When it comes to increasing cannabis yield one of the most asked questions is how many plants per light? In part 2 of this series we’ll take a look at that part of the yield equation and why there really is no definitive answer.
The best answer I can give you is somewhat ambiguous because it can be 1 plant or 100 and I will also explain why plant count is really not really a factor that influences yield.
How Many Plants Per Light And Why It Doesn’t matter!
When it comes to getting big yields it’s all about canopy size and not how many plants per light. So asking how many plants per light is actually the wrong question. You need to think about how many plants you need to make a full canopy.
To maximize your yields you need a full canopy. You can have a full canopy with just one plant with a long veg time or use 100 small plants in a SOG with next to no veg time. It really doesn’t matter how you accomplish it, just that you do.
There needs to be a top in every hole of your screen. If you don’t use a screen you need enough tops to fill your grow area before you flip.
Every grow is different even if you are in the same space. That is because it is strain dependent. Obviously if you are growing an upright OG plant you will need more than if you are growing a vigorous bushy indica girl.
Your yields will vary depending on the strain you grow but to max out the yield of any strain you will need to fill your grow space.
In the last part of this series I will talk about lighting. How much light do you need and what kind should you use? Why lighting is even more important than what brand of nutes you use.
