this is something i've never managed to achieve in the past when i was using a powerplant reflector (similar to a Euro Reflector)
with a lumatek 400w,7200k mh for 6 - 10 weeks training then under a son T to finish off.
& for the last few years now, i've been growing the same 2 strains (anaesthesia & big buddha's blue cheese)
so im getting to know how they grow & what they like or dont like, also i vary how many plants i grow
each time to see whats the best combination for me (6 to 8 in a 1m tent)
for the last few grows using the powerplant relector, i averaged roughly 10 to 12oz & my best attempt was 13,
364g X 400w with a ratio of 0.85
, not bad but i was determined to improve things, especially after i helped a pal set up
with a 600w parabolic & the bugger pulled just over 21 1/2oz with his first attempt
so the powerplant was put into retirement & i got the smaller 80cm parabolic & i've since completed 2 grows with it,
the 1st grow, i had 3 of each in 11ltr pots & after a long veg & 9 weeks of 12/12, i got just over 13oz,
372g x 400w = a ratio of 0.93
not bad but i still wanted to improve it.
with the last grow, i went with 8 plants in 6.5ltr pots,same again, a long veg, a bit of fimming to keep things in check,
but i decided to go for a slightly longer 10 weeks 12/12.
heres them after a few weeks under the MH
here you can see them a few weeks into 12/12 & the tent is filled out nicely
Anyway, after 4 weeks drying in the tent, it was bone dry when i chopped them
so, i got the scales out, did the business & couldnt believe it, recalibrated the scales & paid closer attention,
well, i've only just managed to pull just over 17oz
to be precise, a ratio of 1.20
Go you Effin Beauty
i was considering on changing the parabolic for something which better suited my 1x1x1.8m budbox too
but i think i'll just keep a hold of it now
