@latewood, I agree with the starting in smaller pots and moving up in size. Also, about using all proper methods.
What I am uncertain about is final pot size with indoor grows.
I am growing three of the ILGM Strawberry Kush strain in a coco / perlite blend. I am using 10 gallon smart pots.
The website lists that this strain will grow between 10" - 36" on the seed info.
I had to start flowering earlier than anticipated due to rapid growth. At two weeks into 12/12 Flower Cycle, two plants are already at 36", while the third is over 4’ tall.
I’ve had to fashion a different hanging system for my light, to move it to the top of my 72" tent. I’m in the process of getting everything into a trellis, to train the plants from getting too much higher.
Absolutely no complaints, and also speaks well of Robert’s genetics; however, do you think I would have gotten a plant over 4 feet tall in a three gallon pot? If so, it would definitely save me in floor space, under the canopy.
(I also Topped / FIMmed each plant twice. I count around twenty flowering buds at the top of the canopy, getting the majority of the light.)
