Max Yield In A 4x4 Tent

I am currently in the flowering stage of my first grow. I was supposed to have a rdwc system but due to leak, I went with a dwc. Other than that so far so good. This time I would like to have a more solid plan being popping beans.

For my next grow I will be using a dutch bucket system. I plan to use a low profile 25-gallon rez with 10 or 20-gallon pots in my tent with pearlite as a medium. During the next run I also plan on using scrog and main lining. Will my yeild be affected if I grow 1 big plant vs 2 medium size plants? Below is some more info about my grow.

Summary: In a 4x4 grow tent what has a better yield using scrog along with other training? 1 plant or 2 plants?

Tent: 4x4
System: Dutch bucket
Lights: 4x QD 120 5000k, 1x 450 watt Hipargrow Light (I will be adding 6x QB 304 boards)
Has CO2 dispenser w/ controller

Thanks

All dependent on strain and nutrients. More plants don’t equate to more flowers. It’s all linear. Training has a lot to do with how many colas actually develop.
Scrog is a good way to increase yield.
Supper cropping.
Sog is a method that utilizes more plants to achieve the flat plane, yeilds are about the same , what I’ve experienced is scrogged plants do yield better.
In a 4x4, 2 plants scrogged will produce more then say 8 plants in a sog.
But strains do play into yeilds
 
@Jack og I plan to grow indica or indica dominant strains. I also would like to simplify my feeding schedule with powdered nutrients. I am looking at Green Leaf nutrients MEGA Crop https://greenleafnutrients.com/?v=7516fd43adaa#!/NPK. I would use that along with Hydroguard and calcium nitrate or Epsom salts as needed.

Do you have any recommendations for nutrients? I think I fell into the path of many bottles. Right now I use 5 bottles total Canna A and B, Rhino Skin, Big Bud, Kelp extract and General Hydro Micro. My plants seem to be doing pretty good but lots of bottles.

Thanks

I veg for about 6 weeks from seed. In 3 gallon smart pots I can fit 8 mainlined plants in a 3x3 tent. I get 2 - 3 oz dried per plant. I am trying to increase that number by going to 5 gallon smart pots and vegging a little longer.

Yup I’m trying scrog over 4x4 area with 1 strain I know puts out. Scrog net so far is really making a difference in ease of training. And canopy getting filled quickly

We use jungle king branded nutrients, very simple 4 part system. I dunno if it’s sold publicly. But mega crop is bad ass if u can get it.
Keep it simple and it will be epic on yeilds
 
Right now I am leaning towards 2 plants mainlined and scrog. For this grow I have 3 plants and did LST with success but not as much as I could have. I also vegged them a little long due to vacation (about 9 weeks) so right now it's pretty crowded in the tent.

The reason why I am leaning towards 2 vs 1 is one of my plants roughly made its own 2x4 canopy just with LST. Plus I feel like mainling would create a good starting shape to take up a 2x4 area (half the tent). I attached some pics of my current grow.

I like how clean you have the bottom part of the plants where all the larfy shit comes from. 2 plants in a 4 x 4 is nice and clean too. I like it a lot!
 
In a 4 x 4 with decent lighting you can get 8 oz to 2 pounds.

Strain dependent and not screwing it up dependent.
I currently have 3 plants of Planet Dosi from Alien Labs seeds bought directly through Connected. I am hoping that pounds not ounces will be my outcome. 🤞🏻 Day 4 in veg.
