It seems simple, right? Well, for the most part, it is. The difficulty comes when you need to adjust environmental parameters and genetics to improve flower yields. Luckily, we’ve got the lighting part of the equation dialed in for you:

The number of plants per square foot should be determined based on how much space you have available. Using the SOG method of cultivation, we generally recommend 1 plant per square foot, with no more than 2 plants per square foot max.

When growing plants using SOG you will get bud sites quickly since you don’t need to “top” the plants. The faster the buds form means more harvests you can fit in a year. For cannabis businesses or anyone else whose goals rely on consistent harvests of big yields, SOG is an important method for speeding up your crop cycles for consistently high yields.

Determining How Many Plants Per Square Foot Using a Sea of Green

Now that you’ve chosen the plants you want to work with, it’s time to start growing with these basic rules-of-thumb:

Helpful Tip: You can use specialized grow light software to automatically adjust lighting intensity when transitioning between growth stages.

Brief History of the Sea of Green (SOG) Method

It’s simple to begin growing in a Sea of Green in just a few simple steps, but first, you’ll want to consider that:

To get your grow room lighting, temperature, humidity, VPD, and CO2 right, use the helpful SOG growing guide below and get started in no time!

Pot plants need plenty of sun to grow too. But indoors they will be shielded from Old Sol. To substitute for the sun, a wide choice of grow lights is available on the market, making it easy to meet your growing needs and your budget.

Also consider humidity. Depending on the stage of growth, pot plants generally like relative humidity from 40% to 70%. Conditions that are too humid can lead to disease, molds and fungus. Extremely dry conditions can retard the growth of your pot plants.

Watering Cannabis

You will also want to be sure to provide your plants just the right amount of fertilizer. Many commercial fertilizers specifically formulated for cannabis are on the market. You can also mix your own with fertilizers high in nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. If you do have a drip system set up, fertilizer injectors will help you as well.

If you need to increase the temperature, you can use a variety of traditional heating options, including electric, gas and other sorts of heaters typically used in homes or commercial buildings. Heat lamps and insulation are other possibilities, while heat mats underneath containers can warm the soil. In larger spaces, a fan can help circulate warm air so all plants can benefit from it equally.

A grow room might be as small as a closet or as big as a barn. No matter the size of your grow room setup, you want to pamper your plants for maximum growth and strength.
