Saving money in our light bills or being able to perform more crops per year are some of the benefits from this interesting growing technique. After getting all the needed growing gear (pots, lighting systems, fertilizers, etc.), the first thing to do is growing a motherplant from which we will take cuttings . For this kind of cultivation, it is very important having identical cuttings from the same motherplant - or at least from the same genetics - to achieve a homogeneous crop. Working with several genetics will surely cause problems regarding size, height, flowering time, nutrient needs, and a number of factors that will decrease the overall yield of the plants.
Once we have our motherplant ready, we should determine how many plants we are going to use per m2.; the amount of cuttings may depend on several factors and needs, but 25 plants/m2 is a good number to start with. Now we know how many cuttings we have to take from our motherplant and how many pots are needed to plant them. It is advisable taking more cuttings than needed; this way, we can keep the best 25 ones for our growroom and discard the rest of them. We must choose the stronger and healthier ones, with similar heights, discarding those that would not form a homogeneous crop, what is crucial when using the Sea of Green method. Another important aspect of this system is the type of irrigation that we are going to use for our plants. The best option is setting up an automatic watering system with dippers, connected to a nutrient solution tank. In this way, all plants will receive the same exact amount of nutrient solution, what will equally increase the production of all the plants.
Plant each cutting in its respective pot ; we can perform a couple of transplants before flowering our plants, and the final pot's size will depend on the used substrate. If we are using coco coir , 3-4 liter pots will be perfect; otherwise, if we use soil , we should use bigger containers, about 5-6L . Transplanting our plants saves space, helps to control the height of the cuttings and promotes growth with a shorter internodal distance, improving yields. As the growth period of our clones will be short, we must use a quality root stimulator to enhance root growth, so they can quickly develop a well-formed rootball. Roots will drastically slow their growth after the pre-flowering stage - 2nd/3rd week of flowering - so we can stop adding root stimulator to the nutrient solution at this time. Our plants should only have a main central bud with 2-3 side branches. We can prune the lower parts of the plants if needed, for we only want perfectly formed buds which usually only develop at the tops of the plants. Plants should be about 35-50cm tall at the end of the flowering stage , so growing either Indica or Sativa strains is of key importance. We don't want taller plants since the light emitted by the bulb would not reach the lower parts of the plants, developing few and squalid flowers. Indica marijuana strains are generally smaller and more compact than Sativas, which take more time to stop growing once the pre-flowering stage ends; for this reason, if we are using Sativa varieties we'll flower them a bit sooner than the Indicas. SOG of Ak47 marijuana plants, 3rd week of flowering. G-13 (or G13) is a pure Indica that was supposedly grown by the U.S. “G13 is considered by many to be a great day-time Indica that eases body ailments but keeps the mind clear.” The legend of G-13 begins at a research facility located in rural Mississippi in the late 1960’s and early 70’s where the Government was developing marijuana strains with help from the University of Mississippi. Here, they grew many different plants in hopes of developing a super Indica. These pure Afghani clones were supposedly labeled as G-1 to G-23 . Each clone had slightly different characteristics and performed differently. It is rumored that G-13 was the most stable of these 23 different clones. Rumor has it, that a man named Neville Schoenmaker got in contact with someone working at the facility that was known to be a bit of a rebel. One way or another, Neville eventually convinces this research assistant to provide a sample of G-13 to inspect — which is then spread all over the United States through Neville’s pre-established network of growers and connections. It is widely known for its unique ability to provide full-body pain-relief with very little to no physical fatigue or feelings of heaviness. The G-13 strain tends to produce plants that spawn very uplifting Indica buds. Many MMJ patients that I know like to medicate with this strain all day to help them cope with their ailments. Most popular among those treating chronic pain relief, lupus , inflammation, stomach issues, and general loss of appetite.

After smocking Stardawg for the last 7 days I was getting somewhat tired of late nights wide awake! Starts off exactly as described with a little kick of energy. shortly after you just get a full on body high and melt away into full on relaxing and chill. So much so in fact I fell asleep before posting this review and had to re-type.
Someone noted they could have eaten a house while medicated on G13. Incredible, I feel like a different person after a toot of this.
