growing weed in 4×4 tent

4×4. 4 plants,
1 each corner,
vertical hanging bulb with fan underneath,
4-6 weeks veg with 600w MH,
1x 600w HPS for flower (1000w if you use defoliation technique)

First off, look up your local penalties. For example, in Illinois anything over 4 is a felony so i tend to do 4 max.. . If you’re growing legally then never mind this step.

Second, in my opinion, because you seem like a new grower, don’t do too many plants. It gets harder the more plants you grow at the same time to really pay attention to each plants tendencies and needs.I made the mistake of starting to many my first grow and ended up wasting seeds, time, and money. And even the plants that I kept til the end suffered and never got to full potential. If I had to suggest a number I would go 4.

Well, it is all depends how long you are growing to veg them for?

Too many plants = too much humidity in my experience, but try what works for you

First, you are likely to increase your yields and experience better quality results when it comes time to use your cannabis. On top of that, you’ll save money throughout the growing process and allow your plants to grow naturally as they were intended to.

As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

Instead, a more expensive light or fan is likely to be more reliable and provide you with exactly what you need to grow healthy plants and maximize your yield time and time again. In this case, the additional cost of the item would be well worth it in the end.

Keep Pests Away From Your Plants

Growing cannabis may seem simple enough, but if you want to maximize your yields, there are some tips and techniques you’ll want to put to use. After all that hard work, you’ll be able to rest easy knowing you got the most out of your time and effort. Remember to be patient, as maximizing the yield of a given space takes practice!

This gives you more yield than traditional two-dimensional growing patterns.

Some Strains Grow Better Than Others

If you opt for cheap equipment, you may end up with lower yields. Consider what would happen if that cheap fan shorted out or your lights burned out and ruined your plant. Not only would you have to replace the item, but you’d be back at square one with your plant.

However, once your plant reaches the flowering stage, its cycle of light and darkness needs to be altered. It is best to split the day and night evenly, providing exactly 12 hours of light and 12 hours of darkness. Again, a timer is helpful here in case the switch occurs when you are not available to change the light.
