how to grow marijuana indoors step by step

Sea Of Green ( SOG )

Sea of Green growing is perfect for any medical marijuana patient with a decent plant count because it is easier and faster to sog than most any other style of growing. There are many growers who have small plant counts and growing in a scrog ( SCREEN of GREEN ) allows them the ability to grow less plants but still wind up with a great harvest.

Intro To SOG Growing
SOG is pretty much packing in as many plants as you possibly can so that it literally looks like a “sea of green” and rightfully so. After growing with sogs, scrogs as well as low and medium stress training there is nothing more fun than growing sog style. It will allow you to go get clones from collectives for example or take clones yourself and put them into flower much faster than other growing styles because you make up for size WITH numbers.

Instead of having 8 or 9 plants in a grow area you could cram in 32 – 64 and while they won’t compete individually with the 8-9 plants that you vegged longer, they WILL end up with solid harvest numbers due to the overall volume of plants.

Why SOG
Sometimes you need to get growing and fast and waiting around for plants to veg for 4-8 weeks isn’t exactly something that growers want to wait around for because the flower cycle itself is yet another 60-80 days on top of the veg length.

You can cut clones, root the clones and let them veg for a week and toss them in a sog flowering cabinet or grow tent and you will be on your way. Anyone doing micro, small and even large grows can run sog style which btw is perfect for anyone trying to find certain phenos within their strains and seeds they run.

When To SOG
You really only want to SOG with clones so they can be somewhat uniform however growing sog from seed is more than possible. Just remember that with any seed grown plant the first couple weeks are not as productive as a comparable sized clone and needs to be taken into account when adding up veg and flower cycles.

Remember that a sog will only work if your plants have a single cola ( many growers however run 2-8 tops even in sog BUT need to train them throughout the grow and it extends the veg time needed ) so trying to flower out bushes crammed together will leave a TON of larf and fluff so with sog you will want to lollipop them to remove the under growth so the plant can focus all of its growth energy on its top main cola(s).

Better Yields In SOG vs Scrog
As a grower, I have noticed better results within a grow year from sog versus scrog due to the ability to cycle and flower out sog style clones quicker than a scrog ( which needs time to grow as it fills up ascreen with less plants to make up for less plant numbers ) however anyone with plant count limitation should check local and state laws regarding plant counts before attempting a sog.
