Fruiting has begun, the pups were dug up mid march, spent two and a half months in the tent, then six and a half in the HD field. Nine months after separation, they are flowering.

Louis that bunch doesn't look particularly big. Is that the size you were expecting per plant?

I guess you would sacrifice some bunch size but have two to three times as many plants so overall yield per acre/hectare would be higher than traditional spacing.

Hi Akula
This bunch size of GM is our normal for a first year mat on our soil. Three to five hands is usual. Then second year we can get six to eight. Each hands will weigh 3-5kg whatever the age of the mat. I do not have any third year GM mats yet. Next may we should start to see what they can give.
I have two older GM fields with standard 2m spacing and right now they look bare, and the bunches are getting burned by the strong low winter sun from lack of shade. I remain very happy with the HD fields of GM, as they are, with two more fields nicely on the way.

I had the pic you posted in the "what did you harvest thread" in my mind when I saw the photo above and made the comment:



Upon a closer look the bunch has been dehanded and the hands sort of piled up to look like massive bunches.

Thought you had gone from 12+ hands to 4-5. Haha.
