Plant size question


#1

hello all, thanks for having me… :slight_smile: my apologies for the noobish question… I’m about to start my first grow with some white widows… have a CFL setup for the first few weeks, and a 600w HPS/MH setup for veg/flowering… my grow space is a 3’ x 5’ x 8’ closet… how many full size plants can I realistically fit in a space like that? should I limit it to 2, or could I fit a couple more? height isn’t the issue, it’s the footprint I’m concerned with… thanks for the experienced help… :slight_smile:

Are they regular feminized seeds or autoflowers? either way really i would only do 2 that way you are not tight on space. i think it is better to grow 2 decent/good sized plants rather then have many plants that grow into each other and causes space issue’s. Right now i have 4 auto flower plants in a room about the same size as you have and if i would have known that they were going to get as big as they are then i would have never planted them all and would rather only have planted 2 so i could optimize the space of the room for the stretch and the width of each plant. i think if you use a little LST it helps the plants expand and help get maximum yields. best of luck to ya Ryoken

@Ryoken,

Most indoor growers force Flower, or train plants to fit their needs. It’s important to remember that no two gardens are alike.

With that said, I personally wouldn’t put more than 3 in that space, as I like tall and wide with the scrog method.

Hope this helps, cheers :slight_smile:

@Ryoken, I agree I would do no more than 3 possibly even 4 in that space with a 600 watt bulb though definitely would do 3 in that space

thanks so much for the excellent input everyone! they are feminized… I think I will germinate 3, and see how that pans out… :slight_smile: I’m very stoked on my new hobby, it’s something I’ve been contemplating for years…
