    I hate to tell you this, but I flower with only 375 watts (250 HPS and a 125 watt Hydrolight), and I get about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 ozs when dried.... per plant (I flower 2-3 females at a time). A 600 HPS should be getting you 2 ozs per plant easily, depending on the number of females you are growing and the dimensions of the growroom. I LST my plants for better light penetration.


    Hang on, it depends what strain of marijuana your growing in relation to yeild

    how big do you let them get before putting then on 12/12 should determine your yeild more than anything else.
    let them veg on 18/6 until one to two foot tall,and then go to 12/12 i think you'll get better yeilds with the sysyem you have.
    p.s. i am currently experimenting, i have 32 clones ranging from 5 inches tall to two foot at the time i upgraded from 580 watts to 2130 watts. this was when both chambers became one- i unplugged my crappy old 175 watt halide and put them all on 12/12.
    four strains
    humbolt,nl5xkush,thai,mutant afghani.[the columbians went outdoors]
    but i'll be able to tell which heght gets me better yeilds for my current setup.
    and i'll probly start fresh from seed most of the year.

    True, but just about ANY strain should be able to produce at least 2 ozs per plant under a 600 HPS.

    that's exactly why i stated, it matters more how long you veg them. that will determine your yeild- that and the health of the plants themselves.[soil too -get ff ocean forest]

    ^^^^^I've been using Ocean Forest for 2 years and I swear it's the best organic soil that you can buy. I've been a Fox Farm desciple for a long time. I usually veg my plants for 6-7 weeks. They show sex around thier 4th-5th week, then I veg for 2 weeks after sex is determined. I used to only veg for 4 weeks, but since I added the extra 2-3 weeks in veg, my yeilds have definitley bulked up.
