Welcome to the neighborhood my friend. Thanks you for your service. I personally would go with 5 gallon pot. I mainly grow autos. I did an experiment a while back. 2 plants, 2 strains same breeder. The 2 in the 5 gallon pots yeilded much more in the 3 gall. Close to twice as tall.

Outdoor gardens I’ve done most of my life. My grandparents taught me, now I am a homesteader on their homestead. I always till manure in just a month or so before planting. But we always use it around plants as they grow. Indoor growing anything that other than succulents or a poinsettia I have very little experience. I’m in the process of turning some of my property into a permaculture forever food garden with native wild edible plants.
