Making me want to try ice cream now. I imagine it's like white rhino or a relative.
I thought you would aim to fill your tent with some sort of canopy. The number of root systems supporting such a canopy isn't that relevant. 1 plant or 4 I wouldn't expect to tell the difference from above. It's only at 16 plants that things change much, as lollypopping becomes viable.
It's great that you can buy cuttings. When it gets back to normal you have the option to just flower 9-16 of them and be chopping down every couple of months without any difficulty getting more. Self sufficiency just isn't so important to you looking forwards. Here, if we flower off something with taking cuts, you can't rely on getting it back from somebody.
If you are working from seed, then 1 plant is the winner due to maturity. 4 just won't be old enough at flowering time with a foot each.
Yes indeed I can't wait to buy! also because this shop has some cuttings of ice cream from california that are scary! Try searching on the internet for some info about Gelato, specifically maybe number 33 which is the best in the world! You will fall in love
With 200 watts you get serious! I will only do one plant, in mainlining or maybe in scrog, the scrog scares me, I am quite obsessive and I know I would go check and move every 5 minutes, for this I would like to avoid it, mainlining is much quieter and does not cause so much stress to the plant and to the grower. Maybe I'll do a 16 or 32 mainlinin to make it lower and wider scrog style but with the advantages of mainlining. Thanks for your suggestions
