    So where do you think we should draw the line? 20 plants? 30 plants.....

    I know that some growers do regular seeds so if the have 10 going simple maths says they will get 5 females. So for them the plant limit kinda sucks!

    As I said I'm not a heavy smoker but if I had the space 10 plants at a time would last me years, lol.

    Like all on here I don't want to see rooms after rooms ,but I can run if I chose to a 1.2x1.2 with 600w hps and a 2mx97cm with 2x600w ...at a high plant level say 12 between the 2 spaces in flower ,I also have a 2x96w t5 veg room that has currently 10 plants documented on here in veg so a potential of 22 plants under a total of 2000w if I had flower rooms running which I don't at moment forum rules don't allow that

    Mixed feelings about this. I've relied on dealers all my life, I don't knock them completely.

    I'm doing 12/12 from seed so I guess I have the same problem as in law, trying to convince them that the plants are only going to give me 1/2 oz - 1 oz a go. My 9 plants are going to count the same as 9 fully vegged plants knocking off 3oz-5oz. Maybe that's a different argument though. I'm doing 3 so it don't affect me tbh. The international point is a good one but there's plenty of forums out there and if people are on here it's because they like it.

    One thing I would say, I aint no mug either and if I got nicked with 100 plants I'd be shitting myself and expecting bird, there's lots of prisons in London, they'd find a spot.

    Yea I agree, and you may well be right about the tag, but there's always examples made, it's how the law works in this country (not patronising you) justice being seen to be done, and it would be just my fucking luck! Sling it in the local rag and remind people that this is not a legal thing. All that said I have no previous and an illness as added reason.

    I get where your coming from Sad brother, i grow from seed but there will be many that have a mother plant and lets say a guy or a gal has 6 plants in full flower with maybe 3 or 4 weeks left till harvest now would it be so wrong for that person to take another 6 cuts from the mother and start them off in a nursery tent or room so as to have them established before the other 6 come down of course this would be breaking the talks 10 plant limit and lead to a ban but would it really be such a crime ??? i like others have said would not like to see the talk fall prey to commercial growers with lord knows 60/70 + plants only growing for profit, i've mainly grown 4 plant runs in the past and when in full flower have started another 4 beans off but my last grow i had 10 plants going and i have to admit with 10 girls in full flower my arse was twitching in case i got the dreaded knock so with those 10 plants down and now curing in jars i am back to 4 wee ones in my bedroom closet but i definitely see your point brother and like you and others i'm interested in seeing where this thread goes and what the hierarchy have to say, all the best brothers, G'.

    Personally I agree with sad. I'm interested in breeding my own strain someday that would require mothers, clones, pheno hunts with multiple plants, and my own smoke. To document that I'd have to do it private and theres nowhere I can go right now to see it done in a diary. I think dropping the 10 plants rule would benefit the forum greatly in this respect.

    I dunno how youd get around cash croppers though. I dont thinking really matters anymore though. With the UK leaving the EUs drug laws behind and able to make their own, I see weed being legal there and either CSCs or coffee shops popping up in the next few years.

    As someone who lives in a place where CSCs are common, it's actually quite hard to find street weed anymore. Cash croppers will either have to go legit or find another way to make money.

    Default The 10 plant rule

    10 plant rule is crucial.its going nowhere imo
    For personal use 10 plants is imo still to much.i grow 4-5 autos and are able to loose 10oz for extraction and still have plenty of flower to last.if you grow more than 10 it’s not personal.
    There are other sites for that

    I agree with Sad on this one. Tho it doesn’t affect me cos I only do four at a time, I’ve directly seen people go elsewhere because of the 10 plant rule. A mate of mine runs four tents in his loft on constantly with four(ish) plants in each. He doesn’t sell any of it, him and his Mrs vape the lot between them and they still run out between grows occasionally.

    He actually can’t do a diary on here without breaking the rule.

    Deffo restricts the site IMO.

    I watched one forum relax their plant rule (they also had a 10 plant rule) to allow people to breed.

    Next thing was a few of the main members were suddenly growing huge numbers of plants... and no breeding seems ever to have been done there.

    As soon as the rule goes then plant numbers increase to a level that it's no longer percy - a shame but that is what happens based on evidence seen across the internet.

    Also, low plant numbers are actually a UPS. People don't really want to join forums with huge plant numbers if they only want to grow a couple as it can be intimidating and pressure can be exerted for them to grow more

    After all this site is suppose to teach us how to grow and share our learning, not make dealers out of us. There are plenty of site's that have no limit, but I didn't stay long my self when I was an active member, just not my thing.

    Whilst I think on.... not only is there a push to increase plant numbers, often we get the opposite, a push to reduce plant numbers. Admin were petitioned recently about reducing the max number to 8
