First time posting - Hello all!
My Q is: When people say they harvested, say, 5 ounces from a plant do they mean the fresh weight or the dried weight? I’ve done about three grows and most I’ve gotten was 7 GRAMS as weighed after drying. Am I doing something wrong to get those low yields? I grow Autos and I know that they don’t produce quite as much per plant but still…
First time posting - Hello all!
welcome to the community. i sometimes post wet weight first and follwed by dry weight. when i grow autos i get any where from 2 to 4 ounces from each plant. do you have any pics of your grows?
Most folks seem to specify wet/fresh weigh vs dried weight. There is quite a spread for how much each of us get from our plants. It depends a great deal on your specific setup and growing techniques.
I have only grown auto’s once so far (second pair of autos are currently flowering) and I got 6 - 9 ounces from each plant. Usually about 16 ounces from photo period plants.
It took me a few grows to get those results consistently.
You should fill out a grow support ticket so that folks can provide specific answers that will apply to your specific setup and growing techniques.
Welcome to the ILGM forum.
Edit: here is a link to the support ticket
Weight is dry weight.
Something is obviously wrong. Do you have any started right now or or going to soon. We need to get you some help. When I started I started with autos. I had no clue what I was doing other than practical experience obtained from gardening. 2 - 4 ounces was typical. Usually right around 3.
I would start with finding out what you are doing.
How you start plants
Autos need to have a good start. If they get upset they seem to go off the rails.
Welcome to the community I only care about the dry weight 7 grams is a little light I would try photos next time much more forgiving
Yeah, we try to specify wet or dry when posting but sometimes we forget.
Just fyi for future reference, you can figure to lose 75 to 80% of wet weight once dry.
So 10oz wet will dry down to 2oz. This is approximate, but you get the idea.
Yeah @Squatch that’s a pretty low number. Let us know more about your set up and methods and I’m sure we can dial you in to better harvests
Wet weight is pretty much irrelevant. I’d presume most people weigh after the final trimming when they’re about to start curing. 1/4 oz final yield is extremely low. I’m with @Pinboy, tell us what you’re working with and I’ll guarantee we can help you out.
What kind of light are you using? Grow medium? I know from personal experience, my weight didnt pick up until i was producing dense buds and thats because i upgraded my lighting.
We’d need to know more about your grow but 7 grams is way short of your plant’s potential.
Welcome to the community , stick around we like to see everybody have a successful grow. Reach your goals and meet your needs ask a lot of questions. Happy growing !
I grow autos only outdoors now. Still theyre pretty larfy and the dried weight is pretty sad. I assume its because theyre autos and sativa. I look forward to seeing how youre running your grow. Theres some great help here. Thanks for sharing here. We may all learn something
Post pics, ask questions. There is a lot of knowledge here.
Are you growing without lights? Was the plant getting just some daylight from a window?
Welcome to the community @Squatch
Gonna go out on a limb and say ‘yes’ here. I suspect insufficient lighting and harvesting waay too early.
My current grow. It has several weeks to go as of this photo.
Same plant right this minute. Maybe been 10 days since last photo.
The little one is same as domed one (hiding) on left in first pic. Just topped it at 3/4 nodes.
Welcome to the neighborhood. Lots of good helpful people here. You will enjoy your time here.
