"Herban Legends" Does plant size affect bud potency? ]Whats crack a lackin my fellow farmers! Ive just gotta get yalls opinion on this one after arguing forever about it last night. Myself and a good buddy of mine were talkin about a nicely set up garden that he and another friend of ours was running. He told me t pullin around 1# per 1k watt light. I told him that there was plenty of room for improvement in the yield department but he strangely disagreed. He's a very knowledgable guy when it comes to the sweet herb so this obviously thru me off guard. I insisted that with the room properly dialed in they could easily be pullin close ta 2 per light usin SOG if not more since theyre in a sealed room utilzing CO2. And not only could they probably double their yield per harvest but they could also squeeze in an extra 2 or more harvests per year because they wouldnt need to veg for a month anymore. He agreed but said that they werent willing to sacrifice quality by growin a large number of small plants... This again caught me off guard because he normally knows what he's talkin about, but he was actually tryin to tell me that veg time affects potency. He insisted that a larger plant allowed to veg for a longer period of time would produce stronger buds than an identical plant grown with little or no veg time. And that you cant produce "one hit quit" herb from small plants regardless of strain. This sounded absolutely absurd to me but he was so confident in his claim that I just had ta run this by my everybody at the farm and see if anyone else has heard this or knows if there's any truth to this at all. I mean am I completely insane or does this just sound like another "herban legend"? HA! :rasta2: So basically this is my question: You start with 2 identical clones grown under identical conditions except one is allowed to veg for 2 months and grow rather large and the other is rooted vegged for a week and then flowered SOG stylee. Obviously the 2 month vegged clone will be much bigger and produce much more bud BUT will that bud be of a higher potency than its smaller counterpart??? Or would the potency be identical? *Remember both plants are identical and grown under identical conditions. The only difference is the amount of veg time and the resulting difference in size.
