Sea Of Green

Sea of Green also know as SOG is a growing method used by many marijuana growers. Sea of green is where the grower will have many smaller plants instead of having a few larger plants. Typically the smaller plants mature much faster and in a shorter amount of time than plant not in a sea of green.

Sea of green growing method saves the grower on time, money, and space required to grow. This is really great for the growers that are limited on space since sea of green can be done in smaller areas. The beauty of sea of green is in the numbers. The grower can grow twice as many plants half the height faster and harvest almost twice as fast as regular growing methods.

Cloning is a big help when using the sea of green method. If you have a nice sized mother providing the clones and she is proven to be a good producer, you will be set. At this point you will be able to setup a perpetual grow room using sea of green.

Although sea of green is more of a method/style of growing than something you can do to increase your yield. Sea of green method of growing will under the right conditions actually increase what goes in your jar. This is compared to growing a few larger plants in the same grow space. Always keep the 1 plant per square foot rule and you'll be golden.

Topping should not be done when using the sea of green method. This is because the main point of done a sea of green is to harvest the main cola from several smaller plants. If you were to top them then you would be defeating the purpose. This also goes for training while using the sea of green method. It is not needed and would hamper having several plants next to each other, as well as the slow down caused from training.

Even though no topping or training is needed when using the sea of green method, you will still need to trim and manicure your sweet Mary Jane. Things like lower branches and fan leafs become a must to trim up for the space requirements. Don't go to crazy, just get what is needed to expose bud sites that would not normally be exposed because of the excess fan leaves.
