1 pound weed plant

What does a 1 pound plant look like outdoors?

Question: How big does an outdoor plant have to get to produce a pound of buds?

I want to grow a 1-2 lbs of buds outside in my backyard, and I want to know if that can be achieved with just one plant. I can tend to the plant daily, provide water, nutrients, etc. I’m just worried about how big it will need to get. What does a 1 pound outdoor plant look like just before harvest?

Answer: To help give you some perspective, this outdoor marijuana plant produced about a pound (16 oz) of buds after the buds were manicured, dried and cured. This picture shows the plant just before harvest.

1 pound per plant indoors is a lofty goal.. It is achievable ..

I saw a plant that was grow indoors that YIELDED DRY weight 3.5 pounds..

It had a 1000 watt HPS over head and it was surrounded by 14 – 100 watt envirolights for side lighting.. that is a total of 24oo watts. the guy was an expert grower and built a special closet to accomodate this plant.

SIDE LIGHTING will be KEY to your success. YOU can even hang 1000 watt bulbs in between your plants.

These plants will also require massive maintenance. lots of care and maticulous attention to branches. tying the braches UP to maintain the wieght of the buds is VERY VERY likely..

The pic of you holding that TREE is unreal. I think i’m gonna work on getting some side lighting.

As for the original poster, hate to say it but i think you’re pipe dreamin. I doubt most people get a lb. per-plant on their first grow. An oz. per-plant sounds alot more realistic. Then again, if you have a great set-up and a great strain, it’s still in the realm of possibility.

finally someone with a good question!

the trick is light, light light, with most people not understanding about building reflective surfaces CLOSE.

its pretty much as your first replier said. lights, side lighting and branch tying

look, if you are trying to do this for results and you can spend the time on various net research and etc, you should, its worth it, and yes, most people say if you get one to two ounces that is good, its NOT, set your standards higher!

Making a plant yield indoors just as much as it would (IN the set amount of space you are using as compared to that SAME space outside) is very doable and it really is about light first. good c02 distribution, nutrients and growing mediums are all seconds but just as important.

The DEA did studies on pot which showed that a plant can READILY yield up to FIVE POUNDS per plant INDOORS.

People with growing basically stick to what their buddies in real life or on the net tell them and don’t search around enough for the right answers, keep that in mind

I have 6 plants I want to grow in a hydroponic system and I want to know how much light do I need to get a 1 lb. or more for each plant? ]]>
