    Default 1 Gram Per Watt?

    Anyone have an opinion on what the secret is to hitting this one gram per watt is? I mean I am not even half way through flower yet and these babies look hugh already. But is it really an attainable yield on any grow? I am just curious if anyone knows what exactly makes this happen. Has anyone hit this regularly? What is the average usually? Does anyone have an opinion on what they think these babies will yield per watt? Let me know guys, this is just curiousity. Would like anyones opinion.

    ui have heard of 2 pounds a plant indoor...but only in canada... never heard of 1 gram per watt..so i could get 6000 grams of my 6 plants? since i have 1000W hps?? NO WAY bro!!! In my wildest and wettest dreams maybe! LOL

    your yield will be based on a many many of things!!! first of all it comes down to basics...Strain, lights, and nutes....those are gonna be your 3 major factors!!! then all the other little stuff that goes with growing will also affect it! so in other words, you need to seriously be on top your growing game to get super yeilds! but this is not to say it's impossible! anything is possible if we think hard enough!

    Definately have the same opinion Jay. My last two runs yielded nowhere near that. Not even half a gram. This is just what some others have told me and I was a little in disbelief. Now a pound per light, seen that happen. But even at that I would only be barely over .5 gram per watt. Anyway thanks for your input man.

    1 gram per watt means how every many watts you use thats how many you can get no matter the amount of plants. Obviously it depends on a lot of things but that is a basic goal. Because when it comes down to it, it all depends on how much light you have. Not the amount of plants or how big they are, even though that helps. I hear average growers getting .5 per watt.

    .5 per watt would be nice..that would make 500 grams for me... I would be very happy wiht 500 grams(or 17.85 ounces) WOW that would be awesome! and at around $250-350 an ounce($4,250) off 17 OZ for $250....WOW..never sat and did the math before!!!I'm getting happier by the second!!! LMFAO

    I expect about an ounce a plant this go around!!! if i get more that will be so great! and now that i got my new setup! i will be even better off!.

    It depends on container size, veg time and nutes.

    one gee per watt is a good goal none the less.

    I yielded about .5 per watt but I used very small containers and vegged for 2 weeks.

    Its all about keeping track of your yields and improving...as long as your moving forward....your doing good

    I average .55 GPW with 6 plants per. 400w vegged 2 weeks..... Strain dependent but usually between .42 - .60

    I have heard of growing 12/12 straight from seed to achieve this goal with many small plants.

    I wasn't completely convinced but the article had several examples and made some good points about conserving space with the small plants and increasing your yeild with more plants.

    Anyways i'd like to give it a go for fun, and see what happens. i just need a bunch of bag seeds :smoke:

    Just to clarify, this method of calculating yield was originally outlined as .5g per watt per 30 days of flowering, or 1g per watt per 60 day avg. So, with the 1000, should be theoretically getting 1000g of harvest every 60-day cycle. This was supposed to be the "goal" when growing well. I've never hit that mark horizontally. Vertically, getting .9-1.3g per watt per cylce, depending upon strains run. Never liked this method of counting though. Best.

    1G/W is attainable. Unless you're the beeees knees at soil...'dro is probably the only feasible route. Go check out Rumple's grow at GC. He gets incredible yields under a 400W ScrOG with White Widow. 2-3 plants...10 day veg time. He uses the Lucas Formula with minor tweaks to fit his strain.

    I think you can look up Budslinger here on HC. He grows Biggie Smalls under a 400W ScrOG as well and I think he pulls aroun a lb per harvest. I may be wrong but I think I saw that mentioned.

    I decided at the start of my grow that I would consider it successful if I got a QP. The measurement per watt is kinda strange because it doesn't really take things like veg time into account.
