is there an unwritten rule about spacing when growing cannabis? can plants be too close together? you obviously want them to have enough room to grow to their maximum potential but beyond that, do they need additional space?

Oh yes. I made this mistake this year with my first outdoor grow, planted my seedlings only 4 feet apart. The result was one plant that grew into a 4x4 and 6 foot tall monster hogging all the sunlight from the remaining plants which suffered from the shading but still tried to grow into the big one. I was able to train the shaded plants to grow outward so that they can get more sun, but they could have done a lot better with some more spacing.

Now indoors is a different story, with a bigger space you find yourself needing a better light source so more space isn't always necessarily better there.

thanks for the response and valuable information. let me know if I have this correct: outdoor growing requires more space to grow a larger plant over a longer period of time, and growing indoors takes less space but plants grow faster due to better light sources?

>outdoor growing requires more space to grow a larger plant over a longer period of time

Thats one way to look at it. You already have the most powerful light source available: the sun. So the more space you give your outdoor plants the more space they have to spread out and grow big without running into each other. I put my plants directly into the ground so there is no moving them, but if your plants are in pots obviously you can move them however they need.

>and growing indoors takes less space but plants grow faster due to better light sources?

I wouldn't say indoor lighting is better. Actually with indoor lighting limited in the amount of space you can use because your light source is smaller. The difference is that indoors you have control over your plants and when you want them to flower, so you can harvest a lot sooner than with outdoors. Whereas outdoors you are at the mercy of mother nature.
