One of the oldest, tried and true methods SOG! Very nice!
5 gal. for autos, and 15 for photos.
5 gallon fabric pots we use easy to lift and move ,drain well and easy to dig into.
@Skateallday55 , What light will determine how many plants , you can get the same in a 3 as a 5 , but in a 5 gallon you will need a trellis to contain stretching sativa strains , six 3 gallons , four 5 gallons , are three 7 gallons , but make sure you have the right CFM fan and exhaust , lights with enough wattage par intensity and you’ll be good.
@yoshi @Borderryan22 @kellydans @BobbyDigital ok my notes I never wrote down how long beans take to sprout. I have a Skittles that came up Dec 7th and i have3 other beans in the soil waiting to come up they went in soil Dec 9th. So wise ones The light is right heat is good bugs are gone water isvery little bit 18/6 light shedule
I would do 5 gallon fabric pots. I ran with 5 gallon buckets with drainage holes. The reason why I say Fabric is its hard to over water. Its supposed to also help with establishing roots since they get more air than a plastic bucket.
Fabric pots are cheap in price. I went with 15 gallon fabric pots which I plan to down size to no bigger than 8 gallon. I grow super monsters indoors. Thus a larger than normal sized pots in my 4x4 tent.
They went in soil on the 9th and still aren’t up ?
You’re growing photos or autos ?
@Skateallday55 Mainly Photos. As you control them. I do a couple Autos per year. Not a fan of them but I can only get certain strains as Autos so no choice.
I plan on adding a 2nd tent dedicates to Autos only.
Above photo is an Auto I did not train and only fed nutrients 1 time.
Above photo is a Photo 6 weeks into flowering. I think the Auto was around 6 weeks as well.
I see you like living the world of never ending excitement like myself. Brother man, you’re looking at a challenge for sure. Most I’ve attempted was 6 in a 31” x 38” homemade closet. Ended up taking 2 out and coincidentally purchased that 32 x 32 you have to put them in to finish out. I only say this because I train them pretty hard and like to create space as the sides are going vertical. I’ve seen it done using the manifold technique and when the sides hit the edge of the pot, they let them go vertical. I think it was 1 or 2 gallon pots?? I’m set and all in if you’re going for it
Just reread you question, don’t Know where I came up with 4 photos and 2 autos. It can be done, air circulation and plant maintenance would be the challenge. I’m running mixed in a tent but 3 x 4 and plan on running 6 white Widow clones with 3 autos. Realistically the autos will come out after I flip the light and the stretch takes over. The 3 autos will go in the 32 x 32 after the GACE and GG finish up . Timing has not been on my side the last 3 runs.
I am at 3-gallon pots. Totally wet they are at the limit I can lift - if I have to. Back injuries suck!
That’s how it’s done Brother! Nice job, got a SOG planned myself here soon, getting ready to top 6-8 White Widow clones, a little veg time and flip the switch. Will probably run 6.
Ya I don’t think I worded that too well. And I’m having a freaking blast. I’m training them the best these newbie hands can. Have kept them about 5" above Coco and the branch ends are almost all to the side of the pot. I planned on flipping them in just about 3 weeks, when they’ll be just over 7 weeks. I also have way more light than needed so hopefully I can avoid too much stretch.
Sounds like a solid plan, set to watch
Different pot materials like plastic, fabric, and ceramic have different advantages for marijuana. But how do you decide which ones to use? The first step is to select the right size for your containers, which are usually measured in gallons.
What is the best way to determine the suitable size for your plants?
Choose a pot that matches its height. For every 12 inches, add 2 gallons.
