So this is my first time growing. I plan to put my 8day old seedlings into flower as soon as possible. I am reading that regardless of light schedule they won’t flower until a minimum of 3-4 weeks. As such, I will just keep the 18-6 schedule until at least day 21 to encourage more veg growth. I know I am sacrificing yield. I don’t really care about that as I have more seeds…and more on the way, lol. (went a little crazy there). While these ones flower I am going to be setting up a veg tent where I will play around with training and extended veg for the second run.
My question is, am I potentially or definitely sacrificing potency as well as yield? This I care about!
And a second question for anyone who has gone this route, what yield can one expect under the outlined conditions, assuming ph, rh, temps, nutes, etc. are all acceptable. I am growing hybrids. So for this exercise just assume an average yield for a 50/50 hybrid. This is not a big concern just curious about potential ball park figures. 1/4oz dry per plant, ounce? Thanks for reading.
