Good to see ya dude. I don't know if Motaco's intent was to bash this method, but it sure came out sounding that way. Any pot plant that is grown that only yields 1 gram, or even 3 or 4 grams, has something seriously wrong with it...either the plant has genetic defects, or it is being grown in a way that is doing the plant serious harm. The way Motaco wrote his post, it made it sound like this method was to blame, and thats just bullshit.
The reason I responded with such vigor is because there is way too much of that misinformation being spread on IC, and in the cannabis growing community in general, and I refuse to allow it to go unchallenged in this thread. This thread is devoted to 12/12 From Seed, and there are going to be folks coming here, frequently totally new growers, who want to see what it is all about. Damn if I want them to encounter, right here in the beginning, posts that are spreading mis-information that might very well discourage them from trying to grow this way.
Anyway, it isn't personal against Motaco. I'm sure he is a fine dude, and probably cooks up one hell of a gumbo. But we gotta keep it real here, and we gotta stomp out the un-truths about this method.
The strain reports that we will compile as time goes on will help us avoid those strains that don't seem to work as great as others. I'm guessing that most strains will do pretty good being grown this way. I'm very confident that it will be an extremely rare occurence when a strain responds to this method by yielding less than 7 grams per plant, unless the grower is doing something drastically wrong.
Sorry for the vigor.
