    Provided everything else remains the same you can expect to double your yield compared to a soil grow, good luck."

    I dunno if it'll directly increase yield, but it would increase growth from my personal experience.

    For example say you wanted to veg a plant to 12" before flowering in soil. The same in coco could shave a week off the veg time. I have noticed much more vigorous growth during veg.

    I bet some soil growers could achieve the same results though as it is all down to the grower at the end of the day really.

    You could probably get over 20oz if you top them, train the branches to fill every bit of available space and trim the lower third off the plants of to focus energy on the top buds. So basically it resembles a scrog without the need of a screen. I've got four ladies in 11L pots with holes around the rim. Then string tying the branches down through the holes to have a flat canopy. I'll show you some pics when the lights are on tonight

    Hi mate the best thing you can do is start a grow diary with all the info about your grow then you will get lots of advice from experienced coco growers including me.
    Otherwise you will just end up having to start loads of threads every time you need a question answered or even worse your plants will end up in the infirmary if things go wrong.
    For now the best place to get the info you need is on the thread I've linked below, good luck.
