Hm, I always thought of SOG as purely an indoor term.

It would be cool to see some SCROG outdoors

Where do you live? Around here it's getting close to helicopter season when our wasted tax dollars pay idiots to find outdoor grows. They'd be salivating hovering over your grow.

Sea of Green to my understanding was normally an indoor harvesting/grow method, used by the grower to have a steady supply of smoke, and a smaller labour ratio as far as trimming is carried out. A few hours a day of maintenance every day, or 20-30 hours of sitting and trimming every 8 weeks til your body feels like it's been beaten with chains.
Indoor it's easy to control the light hours available but I'm curious how it is done outdoors where no shading or light timing is used. Won't all your plants, big and small, flower at the same time?
Great looking , healthy plants by the way. Up here in Canada the sun is just now dipping down in hours to trigger flowering and we are all hoping on having gardens as nice as yours...before the snow falls once again.

I guess I was misinformed...lol

Im hoping that by growing large numbers of plants close together, it will stress them and force them to produce more thc. This is my main objective...

Well its worth adding this, then. science isn't 100% sure what the purpose of trichome production in cannabis is. There's some pretty good ideas though, and they all might have certain merits. the main theories are: Aiding in pollination, UV protection, and the water retention theory. Among those, there's very strong evidence the first is a great driving factor.

Now, what am I getting at? Well, we humans have noticed that when a female cannabis plant is ready to be pollinated, it produces trichomes. The moment the female raceme gets its pollen load via wind or insect, it ceases trichome (and THC) production and starts making seeds. The longer we artificially keep pollen from female plants, the more THC they make.

TL;DR and the whole point of this is, well there's nothing to suggest that many cannabis plants grown close together increases THC production. Due to stress from lack of light and other factors, you might even cause hermaphrodites and get accidental seeding. The only way (other than tender loving care, genes, and good growing tek) to maximize THC content is to keep any and all cannabis pollen away.

You do not I repeat DO NOT want to stress your plants. it'll only hurt yield and quality down the road. Spread them out, give them plenty of light, profit.

Its an experiment, with a negative outcome... apparently.

I usually give my girls 4-5 square feet of spacing.

Sea of green is bending or training your plants to grown across the ground. Because you have a lot of plant's doesn't mean it's a "sea of green." Just a big ass crop is what you have and a lot of balls growing that many plants next to your house.

Grow on someone elses property thats secluded and you'll never get busted.

I didn't think LST was necessary for either a SOG or SCROG grow.

I thought about saying that, but then in every instance of SOG/SCROG growing I've seen or heard its always combined with LST because they just compliment each other's benefits so damn well. LST for smaller, bushier plants that use light more efficiently. Then SOG/SCROG to likewise make the lights work as hard per watt as possible.

I always thought a SOG was a bunch of single cola plants. I could see LST for a SCROG grow though.

Sometimes I tend to interchange the terms SOG and SCROG. But I think you're right, SOG is maintaining miniature single cola bushes. Silly me lol.

at the very beginning of the grow season I mixed some compost into the soil. It has been slightly burning most of the ladies. All in all it did not affect the growth of the plants too much.

However, I am wondering what it could be? Nitrogen, magnesium.... ?
