Just Harvested My First Lady! Estimated Yeild?

Discussion in 'Grow Diaries' started by stowndawg, Mar 17, 2019 at 4:53 AM.

  1. This is my first time growing cannabis, but I am not new to horticulture.
    I decided to start with autoflowers growing in 5 gallon smart pots.
    I used FF ocean forest amended with more worm castings, Azomite, Mykos, and a generous handful of live red wigglers. I am very happy with how my first attempt turned out. She is a Critical Purple autoflower, just shy of 15 weeks. I have no experience with estimating how much cured buds I could get from fresh chopped buds. I did not weigh all of it, the top two levels are about 500 grams wet and the bottom two levels are the flowers from the pic with them laid out on a table (I did not weigh these). Give me your thoughts!

  3. @Nugg Hmm 3 oz is not bad i guess. I didnt know ~1kg of trimmed buds would shrink all the way down to 85 grams when dried. Like I said it is my first plant

    Like 70% I think I read somewhere..I've never weighed before cured..that's just what I think it looks like...it's like how many beans in a jar....

    usually 20 to 25% of wet weight is your finished trimmed weight. But it depends on bud density a lot.

  6. The pic with the stuff on the table is not the entire harvest. It is half or more of the total that is in the pic with the full drying rack. @gwheels is 20% the lower end and 25% the highest?. or is that range more of a best case scenario?

    yep...20-25% of the 500 grams is what u will end up with bro

  9. I agree with that range, if you have 1kg wet and get it to 23% then 230g so 1/2 a lb from one plant is nothing to sneeze at. Good job!

    @stowndawg nice first grow, whatever it ends up at, you won’t be like the many non growing public paying $200-$400/oz at the dispensaries...plus you know everything that went into your plants...

    It is a great first harvest. Dry it well and you are home free :D
     
  14. I am just here to say, "Congratulations". That plant is/was Thugz.

    How much bread is in a breadline ?
    You just taught yourself to fish !

    Keep that up, and you have an unlimited supply.
    I one day hope to do - what you have already done.
    Good show, Sir
