(Excerpted from SCW's Fundamentals
The plantlet sea of green method was developed
to maximize the speed of cannabis growing in limited
height situations. In a typical sea of green setup of
this type, clones are planted at densities as high as 9
per sq. ft. Within a short time after being established,
the lights are switched to a 12 hour dark period.What
happens to the planted clone?
The clone could just
sit there, stretch a bit under the light regime, and
flower, producing a tiny little bud with a couple of
seeds. But that rarely, if ever, happens. Instead the
clone takes off in a rush of growth, forming a woody
main stem and branches. If the plant is suitable for sea
of green growing, it will stop short of the lights and
flower. Most indica dominated plants stop short enough
to be grown using this method. That process is at the
heart of the sea of green method, as it results in the
smallest possible plant flowering in the quickest
that SOG plants are really just "an apple on a stick,"
that is, the main cola, and perhaps a side bud or two,
This image is of a SOG grow by
Overgrow poster Eugene. The plants are in 3 quart pots,
which sit on a trough filled will planting medium.
