Sea of green scene

Is there any disadvantage in the size of buds when growing a sea of green? Do the buds stop getting bigger when the leaves of different plants touch each other?

The buds will continue to grow even after the leaves touch. Three or four weeks after forcing flowering, the plants can be pruned of the fan leaves that are hiding buds. This allows the growing flowers to receive direct light.

Sea of green plants that grow in a healthy environment produce high yields. Individual buds are not the largest, but the total yield figured on a space basis is higher than growing larger plants, and the cultivation of sea of green crops takes less time than crops of larger plants.
