so far after a 6 day hang dry this is turning into a disappointment that would make your mother cry . i have trimmed 2 plants and on 1 plant it was 2.8 oz and on the other 2.5 oz im sure i will lose another .5oz in the paper bags quality is right on the moon but quantity sucks ,
i thought i did everything right could it be im not watering enough ? or the organic nutrients ? back when i was using fox farm soil trio i was averaging 4 oz a plant
will update later with pics

How's the density? I like to judge by loose dry jar weight. My sativas might only have 1oz per jar, and the densest indica can be 2oz jars. I do agree, you probably get better yields with bottle nutes. Have you tried dynagrow?

That is disappointing. Your plants looked great, too. I got 4 oz. per plant from mine. I used the FF trio and Bloom City Kelp (with advice from @GNick55). We love the quality of this weed and I'm hoping for better production from my next crop. I am planning to use Gaia Green next time. I'm hoping to grow Acapulco Gold again this fall.

I used 7-gallon fabric pots.

My thinking about pot size is that the larger the pot (or volume of soil), the more forgiving the soil will be regarding nutrients. Another way to think of it is that the smaller the pot, the more careful the grower needs to be about providing nutrients. Of course, the fertility of the soil matters a great deal, as well. So it might be that organic nutrition might work better with larger volumes of soil. That, I believe, would not be true for synthetic nutrition.

I told him I used it, it's great as I used Grow for veg then in Flower I'd use bloom w/FF Big Bud as a booster and got good results. SS

Nice job. Looks great, I can't figure how to tell if they are ready to harvest. Because in my mind those look ready. I'm growing the exact same strain, I also had some of the same problems. Seemed like 1/2 the crop were very sensitive to light and would burn. The other 1/2 were at the same distance away from light and were doing great. Anyway great job, hope I can get there one day. Yall keep ranchin

I've grown this strain and will grow it again. I also had similar problems, including bad leaf fade after the flip. My thinking is that I didn't have the nutrients correct. I suspect it was a Mg deficiency. I plan to add Epsom Salts and other nutrients to the soil next time. I also plan to change the nutrients sooner, like a week or two before the flip.
