Whether you grow indoors or outdoors will have a big impact on your plants.
Cannabis growers love to boast about huge harvests, but just how much weed can inexperienced growers expect to harvest from a single plant? In this article, we’ll take a closer look at cannabis yield and what influences it, and much more.
INDOOR VS OUTDOOR
Outdoor growers, on the other hand, usually have much more space to work with than indoor growers, meaning they’ll be able to grow more plants in a single season than indoor growers. Plus, outdoor growers also have the benefit of growing under the best possible light source in the world—the sun. However, outdoor growers don’t have the same level of control over their environment, meaning their yield is subject to the season, which, depending on where you live, may be unpredictable.
• Read up on training techniques. Training your plants to grow a certain way maximises their exposure to light, which will ultimately improve your yield.
• Know your nutrients. Use the info on our blog to learn more about how to use nutrients to really maximise your plants’ potential.
You could decide to make 1 m2 of one-bud. In which case, you would need between 15 and 50 plants to cover one square meter, and in this scenario, the growth phase will last less than a week. Indeed, you can put your plants in the flowering period as soon as the first leaves appear. Or you could decide only to grow one plant in one square meter. For this, and if you want your plant to occupy all the available space, it will take a growth period of two to three months. However, it is advisable to choose a compromise between these two extremes.
There are enormous variations in terms of potential harvest per plant, ranging from 500 grams and 3 pounds.

The harvest could also be limited to 50 or 100 grams of dry grass per square meter if something goes wrong during the cultivation.
The number of plants doesn’t really count. It doesn’t matter how many plants per square meter you grow. The goal is for the entire available surface to be covered by plants, which will allow the flowers to occupy all the available space and thus maximize the production of weed.
