You'd have to start flowering two new veged clones every three weeks to a month, working on a flowering time of 9 to 12 weeks.

As said you'll need two rooms, one for veg one for flower, four oz's from two plants would be easy and you'd only have to veg the clones for about two weeks to get them to a size that'll give two oz's each.

A bunch of fluros or a 250w MH lamp would be perfect to keep a mum and root and veg two clones per month and a 400w hps will be sufficient for the flower room.

You'll need fans for each room and a carbon scrubber for the flower space.

You'll have to decide on a method of hydro to suit your needs and get the related equipment.

Well, first you're going to have to decide if you want to harvest four ounces every single month, or, since it seems you only need four ounces every month, if you'd be more interested in doing a bigger grow that will give you enough to last for a few months. Your question is very open-ended, so its not really possible to tell you exactly what you need, since there are so many factors and variables to consider.

If you grow your plants in a more or less natural manner (as opposed to a lot of training or different methods like sea of green or scrog), you could expect anywhere from an ounce to four ounces depending on the strain. Generally, I think you'd need about a square foot per plant like this. If I remember correctly, a good rule of thumb to figure is that you need at least 50 watts per square foot for HID lighting. If you assume a yield of two ounces per plant, you'd want two square feet for every month of toking. Keep in mind that cannabis will be in the flowering state for around two months, and you could have them in vegetative state from one month to two months as well.

A good idea would be to have a separate room for vegetative growth so that the flowering room could be replaced with plants ready to begin flowering with harvest. Another idea would be to sequence the growing so that you're introducing new plants into the flowering room every week, two weeks, month, whatever best suits your needs so that you harvest more frequently. Keep in mind also that you'll want at least a few weeks for a decent dry and start on the curing process if you let your buds last that long.

Another important factor you need to contemplate is air exchange. You'll need to be completely replacing the volume of air in your grow room twice in one minute. You'll need to find the cubic feet of your room, multiply it by two, and find an in-line fan that is rated to extract that much air in one minute (for example 170 cubic ft/m). Of course, you may also have to consider using carbon filtration on that extracted air if smell is a security concern where you are growing.

That should be some perspective to take in order to start figuring out how much space and subsequently light you'll need to grow depending on how you plan on arranging your grow and then to start researching into what you'll specifically need to make it happen.

Legendary

That guy has a cabinet 2 feet wide, ~1 foot deep, and ~2 feet tall

He pulls 3/4 to 2 ounces a week in said cabinet

He uses a sea of green growing style, where clones are given a chance to establish roots, and then put right into flower.
Each Clone will end up producing 4-21 grams once finished.

Seeing how he has a 9 week strain, he needs 27 plants to maintain ~1 ounce per week (3 get harvested every week, 3 get put in every week)

And my favorite part about the grow . . . he does it all with cfl's!!!

I highly suggest everyone check out his grow, it has inspired me to follow in his footsteps.

Seeing how you wanted 4 ounces every month, this should suffice.

you could do a 2X2X4h box for one plant and pull a cutiepie off it easy every month...

and have a veggie bar set up to where you can just throw in a clone you snip from the flowering plant right b4 you put her into flower. then by the time shes done, the vegging clone will be big enough to throw in the flowering box. and continue to repeat this cycle every month...

i just re read what i posted. it sounded like i was saying off the same plant pull a qp each month, but obviously this is not possible.

what i meant was with a new plant each month you could get a qp in a space that big.

good genes and good lights and good nutes = big buds :crazy2:
