If growing outdoors, you may only get one harvest a year. Remember, check out how many plants you can legally grow in your state here.
A big plant doesn’t necessarily mean big yields, as buds can be thin and wispy. A medium-sized plant with quality, dense nugs could yield more than a six-foot tree. Also, if growing multiple plants, they can grow over each other and shade one other out, reducing yields. Make sure to give plants plenty of space.
Factors that determine a weed plant’s yield
Also, these estimates are for healthy plants. If a plant becomes nutrient-deficient, gets bugs or mold, or doesn’t receive enough light, expect a lot less.
Sudden extreme changes in temperature can affect a plant’s growth and yields, such as a sudden cold snap, which can slow a plant’s growth, or a heatwave, which can dry out a plant.
Different soils have different nutrient levels and some nutrients can promote plant growth. You can also add nutrients to soil or water to help plants grow big and strong.
The quality of your plant depends on your knowledge of the cannabis growth stages and the lifecycle of your plants.

Our phone lines are open from 9am-5pm central time, Monday through Friday. Our staff is working remotely wherever possible and we will maintain a bare minimum staff on-site to perform basic operations of order processing and accounting. Our on-site staff will follow the appropriate best practices and guidelines set forth by OSHA’s latest release of "Guidance on Preparing Workplaces for COVID-19."
Male: Small green sacs full of pollen will be seen on the node areas.
Do that and you could potentially get the kind of yields experienced growers get, even on your fist grow—assuming you do not make any major mistakes, of course. And growing indoors, you get to control everything.
Maximizing marijuana yield is simply a matter of providing the right growing environment and using good strains.
For that reason, it is much better to use the power of your lighting, or the size of your grow area, to estimate yield. Then you can fill that area with one large marijuana plant, several smaller ones, or many tiny ones.
Trimming, Pruning And Training
Using the size of your grow room, you can count on around 2 ounces per square foot. That equates to around 600 grams per square meter.
Each option has its advantages. This article covers that and helps you figure out how many plants to grow in a given space.
Nutrients And pH
For that reason, you’ll want to use the actual wattage. But it does not work for the above calculation, so you have to use it to approximate the HID equivalent wattage.
Note that the wattage we are using here is for HID grow lights. It would work for fluorescent as well. But LED grow lights are different.
