I recently Met a very Nice Gentleman who mentioned to me his past experience with Yields was 100 grams per plant. This is not correct. Here is some info for him and all here. I hope this helps every one! Kevin Leopard / Thailand Hemp Farms.

On average one should get around 500 Grams per Plant.

Factors that affect Plant Yields………..

You have limited control over environmental factors when you grow outdoors. Started indoors, transplanted into loose and airy soil in a perfect climate, properly fed, watered, and trained – a prodigious strain could produce well over a pound of dry flower. But that’s a lot of “ifs.”

What’s most important is controlling the factors that you can actually manage.

  • Don’t time your plant to grow and flower during extreme weather. If you have very hot summers (over 85°) or cold summer nights (lower than 50°), don’t expect a heavy yield.
  • Time of year matters, too; most strains need at least five hours of direct sunlight and five hours of indirect sun – but too much daylight will prevent them from flowering properly, greatly limiting production. Auto-flowering Plants are often the best choice for outdoor growing.
  • Soil (dark, silty loam is best) should be rich in organic matter, organic fertilizer should be added as needed, and watering should be frequent; some huge plants may need as much as 10 gallons per day, so good drainage is crucial.
  • Tenting or putting up tarps is best for outdoor plants in some climates, as protection against wind, heavy rains, temperature variations, and some pests. Just be aware that the smaller the tent, the smaller the plant and the smaller the yields.
  • If you’re growing in pots, the size of the plants and the yield will be limited; bigger pots allow bigger plants to grow. Large cannabis plants require a 15-20 gallon pot for good production, and you shouldn’t expect the yield to be as great as if you were growing in ideal soil conditions.
  • Finally, plants should be frequently inspected for pests (especially Spider Mites) and mold. They can turn a small yield into no yield at all.

Generally speaking, you can expect 4-8 ounces in decent outdoor conditions, depending upon the Strain you are growing and How long the Plant is allowed to grow. I like to let me Hemp Plants grow quite a long time, however due to the Latitude and Longitude we live in this limits our Growing Periods. One of the Best Latitude and Longitudes to grow Cannabis in the Would is Khon Kaen Province, Thailand. Latitude 16.439625 Longitude 102.828728. What has and still amazes me is that how well Cannabis Grows here.

I remember in Hawaii when I would make Clones, sometimes I would have a few I did not like and would toss them aside. I would clean up and perhaps miss one or two. Come back a few days later, find them still alive! It is like this here, however the Temperature goes over the so called limit of 80 degrees everyday here. It is HOT in Thailand!

By and large, six main factors determine how much Flower your Cannabis Plants can produce:

  • Plant genetics
  • Outdoors vs. indoors
  • Soil vs. hydro
  • Lighting
  • Nutrients
  • Skill and experience

Genetics is something you do not have control over. If the plant is a naturally Low Yielding Strain due to its internal makeup, then you cannot force it to produce more buds than it can. How and where you grow the plants also need to be taken into account. Whatever method you end up choosing, there are ways to increase the harvests. Executing all of these things hinges on your ability and know-how as a grower.

Plant Genetics……When talking about plant yields, genetics is one of the most important considerations. If you’re growing naturally high yielding strains then they will produce more buds. Others, despite your interventions, a Cannabis Plant can only churn out an average yield. Besides the size of yields, you need to think about the quality of the harvest. Sativa Strains, being tall and lanky, generally have lower yields, but the upside is that they boast the highest THC concentrations. Meanwhile, Indica Strains have large yields composed of dense buds. I recommend using a “Hybrid” of Both Indica and Sativa.

But with hybridization and inbreeding, these distinctions are becoming more and more blurred. To be sure, research the specific qualities of your chosen strain first.

Outdoors vs Indoor Grows………….

Where you grow your plants – outdoors or indoors – will significantly impact their growth and yields.

Growing outside usually means having the luxury of working with a larger space. As a bonus, the plants will also be flourishing under the Sun (Absolute Full Spectrum Light) undoubtedly the best possible light source. Because you can grow more plants, you can also harvest more buds. The Down Side of Outdoor Growing is the lack of control over the environment, making the plants more vulnerable to extreme weather changes, pests, and mold. Since many external factors are involved, the yields of outdoor marijuana plants can be harder to predict.

On the other hand, growing Indoors lets you manipulate the environmental conditions, including the light, temperature, and humidity. By keeping them within optimal levels at all times, you can coax higher yields. However, you most likely have a smaller growing space, which means that you can raise fewer plants.


Cannabis Plants need nutrients to grow and produce your coveted buds. Remember, their dietary requirements change across the different stages of growth. Make sure that the chosen fertilizer contains the appropriate ratios and concentrations and Macro Nutrients.

During the flowering stage, for instance, Cannabis Plants need higher amounts of potassium and phosphorus. On top of that, they will need more macro nutrients, like calcium and magnesium. Also, do not forget the pH level – make sure to keep it within pH 5.5 to 6.5 at all times. (If the PH is off the The cannabis Plant will have a harder time Absorbing the Nutrients) Alos I highly Recommend Using a Product Like This Picture I have included with this Post.. Using a correct PH level allows the roots to access and absorb certain minerals, resulting in deficiencies. Not having

These can make the plants more susceptible to infections, which could significantly lower the yields. I always “inoculate” (sprinkle Mycorrhiza onto wet seed prior to putting into the Dirt) my Seed prior to planting. One should always add Mycorrhiza into their Soil. Mycorrhiza is a “Symbiotic Parasite that uses the Cannabis or any Plants’ Root System to live upon. Mycorrhiza does not Hurt Cannabis. Mycorrhiza breaks down the available soil nutrients into smaller molecules and this allows the easier uptake into your plants. Increasing the Growth and Yields!

Skill and Experience……

Many people tend to forget this. Understand that it is not just about the strain, growing method, or how much light or nutrients you give the plants. Like it or not, your skill and expertise will also come into play.

If you are just starting, then do not expect to obtain the same yields as a seasoned grower. Training techniques alone will take some time to master. Not to mention, you will encounter all sorts of problems along the way from over watering, nutrient deficiencies to pest attacks. How quickly you can diagnose and address these issues can mean a lot for your yields. If you act too late, for instance, you might lose some of your crops.

But do not be discouraged. That is just how it is. As you gain more experience and further hone your skills, rest assured that you will have more control over your plants. In turn, that makes it much easier to boost your yields.

Although the yields are highly variable, there are a couple of ways to approximate how much buds the plants will produce. One option is to factor in the size of the Pot. But if you are growing indoors, then relying on the grow lights may be a better approach.

A gentle reminder. The weight of you harvest will decrease once dried and cured. To have an idea of how much weed you will end up with, multiply the weight of your freshly-harvested flowers by 0.25.

The final height of marijuana plants largely depends on the strain. But, it also comes down to the pot size. After all, they can only achieve their maximum Height and yield if they have enough space to grow. In other words, make sure to use the right container to avoid limiting their growth and expansion.

Outdoors, you will usually need at least 5-gallon pots. I am using Seven Gallon Cloth Planting Pots. This way my Grows are “Modular” I can move a Plant around. Change one out..etc, etc. In the best-case scenario, Cannabis plants should reach at least 35 inches and each plant should generate about 3.5 oz of dry flowers. Again, this is only a rough estimate. (Which is about 98 Grams per plant.) This again depends on How you Grow.

Several methods help increase plant yields. Make sure to supply the plants with just the right amount of light and nutrients. As you might have noticed, the yields of indoor marijuana plants largely depend on the lamps or the growing space. As a result, the yields per plant are much harder to predict than outdoor growing. It might sound confusing, but you can take advantage of this to increase the harvest. That is, by growing fewer plants.

Here are some Plant Training Techniques…..

Low Stress Training……

This method involves manipulating the plants to grow laterally – instead of vertically. It can be achieved by bending the plants to the side and tying them down. If done correctly, it will guarantee a uniform light distribution across the plant while enhancing energy efficiency. I put screws into the opposite walls and tie string to them and use wire ties to “Train” the Plants Growth Pattern.

Sea of Green……….

Also referred to as “scrog” or “scrogging,” this technique is a form of LST. Likewise, it also means inducing the plants to grow horizontally. This time, what you need to do is place a lightweight mesh screen or Netting over the plants. It will keep the stalks evenly spaced and of the same height for equal light access. Also this will alleviate the weight of the Flower on the Plants’ branches and help the Plants Growth/Yield. I highly recommend this practice.
