These figures are just a *representation* of what you MAY expect from the product, not a guarantee in any way. Notice the units of measurement. This does not show 17.5 ounces *per plant* - it shows it in relation to yield per m^2 (meters square - ie Sea Of Green). If you tightly pack plants into a 1 m^2 area and grow SOG properly, this is an approximation of what the total yield will be from all the plants combined. Keep in mind however, some plants will be male and need to be discarded, and many times you can't start a SOG from seeds very efficiently. SOG is much easier to set up from clones. If you grow your first generation seeds to maturity, hack the males, then clone the females - the clones, when arranged in a 1 m^2 SOG setup, will (according to the distributor's info) yield around 17-18 ounces in combined dry weight.

If you can pull 20-30 grams (around an ounce) from a single plant, this is considered a decent yield and respectable.
I hope this helps, and doesn't confuse you more than you already were. If so, let me know and I will try to better explain, and there are many others around here who will be more than happy to assist as well . Happy Growing!
*NOTE - "yield" is equal to the dry weight of the *buds* and/or "usable product" *after* harvesting, drying, and curing.

Be wary of those who believe in a neat little world, its just f*cking crazy you know that it is. Walking along in a haze of confusion sometimes I can laugh, but at times takes all my strength to take the next step but I will till I drop the devil to his knees.
