Size of plant in one DWC bucket

I have a GH power grower and I’m wonder how big a canopy I can grow using scrogg. I don’t see the root ball getting massive do to the small bucket space but I’m wondering what the max she could put out canopy wise.



Mine are 4x4.

You are going to find out why folks doing DWC (that have done it in a bucket) turn to large totes instead…

Could you elaborate a little for the benefit of the OP? How large a canopy/scrog per plant do you train?

the plant is in the dwc bucket at 9wks or so. then is in veg. area for 8 to 10 wks before going into bud chamber for 9 wks.plant size verys most about 24in to 30in and produce 3 zs or close to it.its a very user freindly system. i made all of my dwc from scratch. very easy to make. i love mine! heres a bud DSC05294|666x500
