4' X 4' X 8' Tent with Eight Plants...Overcrowded?


I have five Pineapple Haze, and three Big Bud plants in my tent described above. They are two months old as of yesterday. I have topped four, and will be cloning the other four when I top. I have three LED lights, 400W, 600W, and 300W. I move the plants as growth requires. Also have four fans on them. Running 18 hours a day. I’m a noob, and am wondering if I should thin them out before they obscure each other.



That depends on your personal grow style some guys have great grows with more in a space I let mine spread out more . This is my 4x4 and I would not go over 6 in it but I am only growing these 2 now


I have a 4x4x6 and I am only running 5 in it now. The thing is the plants might all fit in it now, but once they may become overcrowded once they really start to take off in size.

Mine today. Five Pineapple Haze and three Big Bud in a 4X4!


I agree with these guys- i have same size tent and have 5 or 6 in at MOST as i find it becomes difficult for me to keep an eye on things and reach for watering when i have more than 5 - and i have better light concentration with 5 (placed like the 5 on a dice or a die ) two on each side and one in middle and even then the tent is Full -and if you LST or scrog its plenty of room with 3 plants and harvest just as much as squishing 8 in there- remember you need good air flow - xo good luck -


Well I’ll tell you what…five plants were Pineapple Haze, and three are
Big Bud. All started around Christmas Day 2016 (12/25/16).
Two of the BB’s were short and wide. All were topped. I put the two
“shorties” on a bin so they would be as high as the others.
Put them into flowering mode two weeks ago. All are doing well. I used
Humbolt Nutrients GROW, in the third month, and during the flowering
period, I am using their BLOOM. I also put a SCROG net in a few weeks
before they were high enough to put through it. Here’s a few pix I took
this morning, Easter (4/16/17).


What strain OS?

Gold leaf and girl scout cookies

Hey Buddy,

I ended up with probably close to a pound with the eight plants. Pistils
were 50% red, so I tried to take the buds on top, and let the smaller ones
under the canopy get bigger. Didn’t work. Soon as I cut the tops, within a
few days all the little buds turned red fast.

All in all, I’m happy they are curing now.

Here’s a shot of some of the prime Pineapple Haze. Should be damn tasty in
a few weeks!
