    I understand and totally get where sad is coming from
    Lots of folk have come and gone because of plant numbers
    I know there's folk on here who have more than ten plants but simply don't show them

    I've seen peeps successfully breed on here never showing more than ten plants

    The point for myself would be where to stop . Where to draw the line .
    Do you ban the guy with 18 seedlings or the guy with two tents and 8 monsters in each ?
    This would cause problems for the mods/admins and probably drag us into the world of favouritism

    So because of this rules really need to be in black and white No middle ground either you breaking them or you are not

    What would your plant limit be sad


    in a green and pleasant land

    Let's be honest many of us have signed up and became members of other growing sites and I do visit them from time to time but for me what sets thctalk apart from the rest is the "percy" feel of the place where the other seem like a dick measuring contest or maybe its because I only use the old school Web and not Tapatalk
    That's just my quids worth of input

    Im probably one of the few who like the 10 plant rule. When I first got into this I checked out a load of the other sites and for a newbie wanting to learn and grow a few plants and this one was just ideal because it was small and newbie friendly,others just seemed OTT for what I wanted.

    10 is plenty. Should be 9 imho to bring us in line with what UK law considers personal but do appreciate this is an international site.

    Lets be honest theres plenty of "commercial" stuff taking place that can stay off camera just like any clones, mothers [and cash crops....]

    We dont limit number of grows or turnover so 10 perpetual plants is far more than any percy can smoke.

    Even mentioning others are comsuming your harvest means, by definition, you are not a percy so less mentioned on that, the better

    This site was born before cannabis was recategorised to cat B in 2008 so if you got caught with 10 plants you was in a relatively good position if you ended up in court regarding the sentencing guidelines at that time depending on previous convictions...Plant numbers here should be in my opinion be reduced to 9 to fit in with the current guidelines...We understand folks have mothers which they take cuts from in prep for the next grow and may need to germ more seed than needed to ensure females or search for a keeper. All the rule is asking is not to show or discus your plant numbers if your over the quota...Face, Murdock, Grub, Rockster and many other breeders on here have managed to abide by the site rules for years without issues....

    I see it from both sides and understand the arguments for both.

    What I find fascinating is the inadequacy of the law regarding plant numbers when there's such a thing as scrogging.

    I mean, it's just fecking ludicrous what people have created from one or two plants. You could have the book thrown at you for 9+ plants yielding 1oz each, yet have a cup of tea and a nice sit down chat with the arresting officer when just two plants have been scrogged over the surface area of a full-sized snooker table.

    The law is, indeed, an arse.
    I know a girl who thinks of ghosts,
    She'll make ya breakfast, she'll make ya toast,
    But she don't use butter, and she don't use cheese,
    She don't use jelly, or any of these,

    TBH, I've seen SOGs & wonder why.... the last SOG I saw was 110 plants. They could have used that space more productively & grown a larger amount of weed with 8 plants!

    TBH, it's a bit of an outdated way of growing IMHO. I think the idea, at the time, was to use the light footprint to the max... but lighting has come on leaps & bounds... and who really wants a load of 1/2 - 1 ounce plants to trim?

    I can understand your point Sadface. I personally kinda like the 10 plant rule though, but I'm from the UK, so there's risks involved to growing here. It's against the law here

    But I can completely agree with what you're saying, peeps in america are way ahead of the uk times with regards to cannabis and thus not much risk are involved for cultivating there.

    Maybe the talk is trying to create a safe enviroment for percy growers in countries where it is forbidden, thus having the 10 plant rule gives people, especially me, a sence of security from the eyes of the law.

    The talk is different and I like it for that

    All very good opinions being posted, I like many here can definitely understand and see both sides of this debate...on the one hand, we have a fantastic community of very small personal growers, and on the other very valid points for the breeding/cloning side of things.

    I think in the end though, I feel like it boils down to the type of growers we have and want here..the feeling I personally get is that THCtalk is special, it stands out for being friendly and as many have said here 'noob' friendly, full of growers who grow for their own consumption..allowing an increase may take that away from us, with bigger growers coming in and taking that 'personal grow' feeling away from us here, and I really do wonder how the 'vibe' of the forum would change..I would forecast it would be towards a negative direction...with lots of plants on show and as said before in this thread..that can be intimidating to new and small time growers..I can definitely see that for sure.


    However as a few others have said 10 is a rather odd number too since the limit here in the UK is 9, so I could definitely see an advantage of making the max 9 plants to fit in within our current guidelines.

    The plus side is, members who wish to grow more, can.. as long as it's not discussed here on this forum and only the max shown..then all is gravy and both sides are happy
