These plants were in the vegetative stage for about half as long as the plants in the previous picture, AND they had significantly higher yields!
These five auto-flowering plants started at the same time in this DWC setup. Without any training or special time schedules, they grew into this at harvest!
Pros of Sea of Green
The setup in the picture above produced a fantastic amount of high-grade weed! However, the setup in the picture below produced even more in much less time!
Thanks to GIVE_ME_ATTENTION for making this moving gif of an SoG in action!
When using SoG, it’s up to you to decide how many plants and how big you let them get before you switch to the flowering stage.
It is important to use a suitable variety of cannabis and the best idea is to use clones from a single parent plant. This will ensure that the plants all grow in the same way. Growing identical plants for a short period is the main key to success with a Sea of Green.
The cultivation of cannabis indoors presents the grower with the same challenge every time: how do you make best use of the (limited) space available and how do you ensure that the plants get as much light as possible? The answer: Sea of Green.
Which cannabis varieties are suitable for a Sea of Green?
If you prefer to use cannabis seeds, then make sure they are all of the same variety. Sativas tend to grow too lanky and would impinge on the other plants, but Indicas are more suitable.
It is better if the plants do not initially touch each other. The ideal timing for a Sea of Green is not during the first one or two weeks of the vegetation phase, but instead from about the fourth week of the bud formation.
Once the plants begin to grow visibly and the first leaves have appeared, then the seedling phase is over.
